SecuGen has just announced the launch of its SecuGen India operation, to sell all of the company’s products and provide local support and service in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka.
“As a result of the UID project, fingerprint biometrics has been growing very rapidly in India,” Jeffrey Brown, VP of Sales & Marketing for SecuGen said. “We are creating this new entity to better service our Indian partners. Having a local operation will greatly improve our ability to respond rapidly to the needs of the Indian marketplace.”
According to the company, the Indian offices will improve the company’s ability to serve its customers in the region, as the Aadhaar program uses some of its equipment.
“Our Indian customers are very important to us and perhaps one of the keys to our long term success,” CEO Won Lee said. “We will be bringing more resources to bear so that we can meet the many requirements of our Indian resellers.”
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, SecuGen recently released its FDx SDK Pro for Android, and in October, 2012, the company’s Hamster IV fingerprint reader was certified by the Standardization Testing and Quality Certification Directorate, for use in the Aadhaar program.
Also reported previously, the Cabinet Committee on the Unique Identity Authority of India (UIDAI) has approved the fourth phase of the Aadhaar program, which aims to enroll another 400 million people.
