SRI International Sarnoff announces iris recognition access control deployment at E-Commerce Data Center in Curaçao

February 25, 2014 - 

SRI International Sarnoff has announced that its Iris on the Move N-Glance biometric system is now protecting access to E-Commerce Park Curaçao, a new data center in the Pan Caribbean area.

According to the company, E-Commerce Park provides clients with redundant continuity and disaster recovery solutions, including colocation, data storage and private cloud services.

The Iris-on-the-Move N-Glance system is being used to secure access to the collocated servers and data house at E-Commerce Park Data Center by confirming the identity of authorized employees as they enter the facility as well as the colocation areas. The system identifies people in less than a second and processes up to 12 people per minute.

“Positive identity authentication is essential for protecting intellectual property and physical IT infrastructure,” Mark Clifton, vice president, Products and Services Division at SRI International said. “SRI’s N-Glance systems will provide E-Commerce Park Data Center and its clients with trusted identity management in an easy-to-use, practical way.”

Reported previously, earlier this year, SRI International Sarnoff launched a new biometric access control system – the IOM PassPort SL – which it says is capable of processing 30 people per minute.

According to a recently-published report, the overall electronic access control systems market has recovered post recessions and is showing promising growth, owed largely to renewed interest in card-based security projects. The overall market is set to reach $16.3 billion by 2017, growing at a CAGR of 7%.
