The City of Apopka, Florida is in the process of complying with the FBI’s Criminal Justice Information System (CJIS) mandate. The new mandates call for agencies to enforce unique IDs, strong passwords and comply with the CJIS Advanced Authentication requirement by 2013. Non-compliance with CJIS policy would mean denied access to CJIS system or penalties. To achieve compliance, the city has chosen Zvetco Biometrics to provide fingerprint scanning.
Zvetco Biometrics has established itself as a leader in fingerprint identity and authentication solutions. The company’s P4500 biometric fingerprint reader and the Authasas® advanced authentication biometric software have been deployed in the City of Apopka. The city works within a Novell eDirectory environment. The Authasas® software can work well with Novell as well as Windows Active Directory.
The IT Supervisor of the City of Apopka acknowledged that Zvetco scanners are a cost effective product that easily connects to the city’s VDI and physical workstations. Thus, with the new Authasas® biometric authentication system, the City of Apopka has exceeded the CJIS requirements; and has the capacity to even deliver the new Authasas® to desktops and meetings.
Will more U.S. municipalities adopt biometrics to comply with the FBI criminal justice information system mandate?
