Lumidigm has been demonstrating fingerprint technology at CELAES 2014, the FELABAN Conference on Bank Security in Miami this week.
Lumidigm’s products, which have been deployed at five of the top six banks in Brazil, continue to be used throughout banks and financial institutions in the Latin American market to significantly improve consumer experience and boost the security of ATM transactions.
The company’s products are also being used to protect the security and privacy of other transactions such as those related to public health services.
Lumidgm said it has successfully added biometric technology to more than a third of all ATMs in Brazil, enabled a major bank to launch a biometric identification initiative that simplifies secure payment of pension funds for retired public service employees, and is facilitating access to one of Mexico’s largest government health programs.
At CELAES 2014, Lumidigm will demonstrate its line of sensors and modules that use patented multispectral imaging technology.
Lumidigm’s technology uses many light spectrums and advanced optical methods to obtain unique fingerprint characteristics from the skin’s surface and subsurface.
This highly advanced process ensures there is sufficient detail, even under less-than-satisfactory environmental conditions, to provide accurate biometric authentication in mainstream applications.
The company’s technology enables bank customers around the globe to easily access their accounts without compromising security.
“Latin America is an extremely important market to Lumidigm, with countries like Brazil very quickly approaching a key important milestone in which the number of ATMs with biometric authentication overtakes those relying only on conventional approaches,” said Juan Carlos Tejedor, Lumidigm director of Latin America sales.
“Our multispectral imaging technology is helping to pave the way, providing superior biometrics performance, reliability, and spoof protection capabilities that are particularly important for unattended transactions like those conducted at ATM terminals.”
