BioConnect biometric ID solution provides secure access to London data center

June 14, 2016 - 

BioConnect has successfully deployed its BioConnect Identity Platform and Suprema biometric hardware for access control at Netwise Hosting Ltd’s colocation data center facility in London, UK.

The move comes a couple weeks after Suprema launched the BioConnect Identity Platform.

BioConnect’s platform eliminates the need to manage point-to-point integrations as it combines Suprema biometric readers with over 20 access control system providers.

As Netwise Hosting looks to expand its offering with the development of an additional 11,000 square foot data center in London, it selected BioConnect platform as its access control system because it fulfilled all of its security criteria.

Based on its previous vendor installations, Netwise Hosting decided it required a solution that would allow it to incorporate a greater view of identity with a multi-authentication biometric solution that would seamlessly integrate into Paxton Net2. This provided any possibility of Netwise having duplicate systems and information for access control.

Suprema biometric devices provided and supported by the BioConnect team now cover all high-security ingress and egress locations throughout Netwise’s data center.

The devices provide the highest level of identity verification as well as flexibility in indoor/outdoor placement and multifactor authentication with card and fingerprint support.

As a result, Netwise was able to have its preferred access control system and multi-authentication biometrics in one single interface for the creation, removal and administration of all users and access zones.

“We chose BioConnect for several reasons, primarily the ability to integrate their system seamlessly with Paxton Net2, but closely followed up by their feature set and quality of the readers themselves,” said Matthew Butt, managing director at Netwise Hosting Ltd. “The almost immediate availability of the product – coupled with their excellent support – meant they really did stand out from the competition.”
