Suprema, Genetec announce integration for biometric access control solution

April 10, 2015 - 

Suprema has integrated its biometric devices into Genetec, Inc.’s Security Center unified security platform through Entertech Systems’ BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform, to offer an advanced identity management solution.

The products work together to simplify the process of deploying, enrolling and managing biometrics for secure access control in any scenario.

Suprema integrated a range of biometric devices into Genetec Security Center, including BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini.

“Suprema is very pleased to integrate its global leading biometrics technology into Genetec Security Center,” said Young S. Moon, vice president of Suprema. “The benefits of True Identity will offer enhanced security and extra convenience for the Synergis access control features in Genetec Security Center. This integration includes a wide range of premium biometric-driven access control devices that are suitable for indoor and outdoor installation, and will efficiently meet a wide range of system requirements.”

The new integration facilitates managing the true identities of employees, visitors and the general public, ensuring that customers will no longer have to concern themselves about the security risks involved in approximation technologies like cards, PINs, fobs or keys.

Suprema works with customers in a range of markets to ensure finger and face recognition is used effectively for providing secure access to both physical facilities and software applications.

Genetec’s Security Center is an open-platform IP security system that combines IP access control and video management in a single unified solution.

The companies are able to capture cardholder profiles centrally in Security Center through a seamless and real-time link between BioConnect and Security Center.

As a result, they are able to eliminate any duplication, such as in the case of traditional integrations between standalone systems where dual cardholder data is often entered.

Additionally, all access control events produced by biometric devices can be monitored centrally through Security Center, while activity reports from doors with Suprema biometric devices can be consolidated with traditional doors and also linked with video to ensure broader situational awareness.

Genetec customers will benefit from the new biometrics features, as well as centralized monitoring and activity reporting for traditional and biometric devices.

Previously reported, Mayflex recently signed a distribution deal with Entertech Systems for Mayflex to provide Suprema’s line of biometric readers for access control to the UK market.
