New Jersey-based Protec Secure Card has been appointed the national distributor for SmartMetric’s biometric security cards within the USA.
PSC is a Visa, MasterCard and Discover certified credit card manufacturer that specializes in advanced high-quality credit card production for card issuing banks in the United States and Central and Latin America.
The SmartMetric biometric card uses a person’s fingerprint to activate the card in a secure on card scan and match. It is self-powered with a rechargeable battery and scans and matches a person’s fingerprint in less than 0.25 seconds. All of its scanning and matching is conducted inside the card. Once the user’s fingerprint has been verified, the card is activated and able to be used. The card conforms to ISO size standards for credit cards.
SmartMetric’s biometric card is protected by five recently issued patents and the company has the capacity to build one million cards a month with the ability to scale this up quickly
