SEOUL, KOREA, Apr 10, 2015 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema, a leading global provider of biometrics and security technology and Genetec, Inc., a manufacturer of open platform, unified IP security solutions, have integrated their systems offering an advanced identity management solution. The companies have just made this exciting announcement: Suprema biometric devices can now be paired with Genetec's Security Center unified security platform through Entertech Systems' BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform. Together, these products simplify the process of deploying, enrolling and managing biometrics for secure access control in any situation.
The Suprema devices integrated with Genetec Security Center include BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini.
"Suprema is very pleased to integrate its global leading biometrics technology into Genetec Security Center. The benefits of True Identity will offer enhanced security and extra convenience for the Synergis access control features in Genetec Security Center," said Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema. "This integration includes a wide range of premium biometric-driven access control devices that are suitable for indoor and outdoor installation, and will efficiently meet a wide range of system requirements."
This new integration greatly facilitates managing the true identities of employees, visitors and the general public. Customers no longer have to worry about the security risks involved in approximation technologies like cards, PINs, fobs or keys - which can be borrowed, shared, lost or stolen. Suprema works with customers in a wide variety of markets to ensure finger and face recognition is used effectively every day for secure access to both physical facilities and software applications.
Genetec's flagship solution, Security Center, is an open-platform IP security system that merges IP access control and video management within a single unified solution. A seamless and real-time link between BioConnect and Security Center allows cardholder profiles to be captured centrally in Security Center, thereby eliminating duplicate activities, such as the dual cardholder data entry typically found in traditional integrations between standalone systems. Additionally, access control events generated by biometric devices can be monitored centrally through Security Center, while activity reports from doors with Suprema biometric devices can be consolidated with traditional doors and also linked with video for greater situational awareness. Genetec customers will benefit from the added features of proven biometrics, and centralized monitoring and activity reporting for traditional and biometric devices.
"With this new integration between Security Center and Suprema biometric devices, our customers will be able to overcome some of the major barriers to biometric adoption," said Francois Brouillet, Access Control Product Manager for Genetec, Inc. "BioConnect is an easy-to-use system integrated with Security Center. The simple enrollment process offers convenience and security when incorporating cutting-edge biometrics."
"Genetec is a leader in unified physical IP security management systems worldwide. By aligning with Suprema and Entertech Systems, Genetec is able to offer a truly integrated biometric access control system with its video security and ALPR capabilities for the first time," said Rob Douglas, CEO of Entertech Systems. "This integration through our BioConnect identity management platform is a successful example of market leaders coming together to enable easier adoption of biometrics. At Entertech Systems, we are purpose-built to help access control systems and end users overcome the three main obstacles to mainstream adoption of biometrics, including cost, complexity and on-boarding users."
