Said to be Germany’s largest biometrics manufacturer, DERMALOG was selected for the performance of its new biometric border control system which the company says is particularly fast and efficient thanks to its high-end componentry.
“We are very pleased and proud that Frost & Sullivan has recognizes the innovation and customer focus embodied by our biometric border control system,” DERMALOG’s managing director Günther Mull said. “All of our products are based on a high quality standard and responding to individual customer requirements – that’s our formula for success.”
The company’s border control technology can scan and verify both biometric features and travel documents such as passports, visas, and other papers if desired. Biometric verification and identification can be completed in just one second, thanks to DERMALOG’s AFIS. The system uses the company’s Fingerprint Live Scanner LF10, which has been certified by both the FBI and Germany’s BSI. The AFIS, which is also supplied by DERMALOG, guarantees that these documents can only be issued once to each applicant, stopping identity theft in its tracks.
According to the company, the new border control system is already being used at all border crossings in Malaysia as well as in neighboring Brunei and in Kuwait. DERMALOG fingerprint sensors are also in use on Germany’s borders and in several other European and Asian countries.
