AMAG Technology, a provider of unified solutions that help organizations mitigate risk and meet compliance, announces the integration of its Symmetry Access Control v9.1 software with Suprema’s BioLite N2 and BioEntry P2 biometric readers.
The integration allows Symmetry users to gain biometric access to a door using their fingerprint and a credential.
“The Symmetry Access Control integration with Suprema’s biometric readers provides a powerful, yet flexible security option for our customers who demand multi-factor authentication security for highly secure areas such as data centers,” says AMAG Technology Vice President of Products and Partner Programs Jason Schimpf. “We are pleased to continue our long and successful relationship with Suprema and are excited to provide our customers with a reliable biometric option for their security needs.”
Suprema is a long-time member of AMAG’s Symmetry Preferred Partner Program. Both AMAG and Suprema have tested and certified the integration.
“Our partnership with AMAG and integration with Symmetry provides customers with a dependable and fast biometric reader that can operate in any environment,” says Suprema Managing Director Hanchul Kim. “Our fast fingerprint matching provides a quick response for users, and customers will benefit from the two or three factor authentication available to them.”
The integrated Suprema readers provide end users with several options for access. In high-security environments, organizations can implement card+PIN+biometric to obtain access. In areas where a biometric is not needed, card+PIN is an option.
Biometric enrollment of Symmetry cardholders is performed within the Symmetry Access Control interface. The user can store the enrolled biometric templates in the Symmetry database or on the card. When the fingerprint is stored on the card, all authentication is performed at the reader, decreasing network traffic while delivering a more efficient system, according to the company. The reader will still operate if the connection to the server fails.
The BioLite N2 provides protection against moisture, dust and liquid in harsh environments. Featuring Suprema’s fingerprint algorithm along with its latest optical sensor, the BioLite N2 is said to provide exceptional performance and the highest level of security.
