SecuGen fingerprint reader integrated into bioLock biometric ID software

October 27, 2015 - 

Realtime North America Inc. has implemented SecuGen fingerprint reader, the Hamster Pro 20, into its bioLock biometric identity management and fraud prevention software.

The implementation ensures that SecuGen fingerprint readers are now fully compatible with bioLock software, which gives SAP system users biometric control of sensitive system activities in greater detail.

These activities include financial transfers, access to customer or vendor master data and viewing of confidential company reports or intellectual property.

“The Hamster Pro 20 fingerprint reader works seamlessly with bioLock and SAP software to give security administrators more control than ever before,” said Jeff Brown, SecuGen’s VP of sales and marketing. “If a user fails a SecuGen biometric authentication by attempting an unauthorized activity, a supervisor can be automatically alerted by email of the logged security violation. The SecuGen Hamster reader therefore becomes an integral part of an SAP data loss and insider fraud prevention system.”

Using a SecuGen Hamster series reader coupled with bioLock software, organizations will be able to re-authenticate the biometric credentials of users when they request private information or perform mission-critical activities.

As the latest product in SecuGen’s series of fingerprint readers, the Hamster Pro 20 is an ultra-compact reader that is IP65 certified.

The fingerprint reader’s other certifications and acknowledgements include being FAP 20 by the FBI, being listed on the GSA Approved Products List, and STQC certified for use in India’s Aadhaar project.

“The SecuGen Hamster Pro 20 is a great product; it is small, rugged and works incredibly well. It is very easy to use with great speed and image quality,” said Thomas Neudenberger, COO of realtime North America Inc. “We are very impressed with the ergonomics and quality of this reader. The adoption and acceptance of biometrics in corporate environments is dependent on ease of use and convenience as provided by SecuGen’s Hamster line of fingerprint readers.”
