Fulcrum Biometrics Partners with IriTech for online sales


Fulcrum Biometrics has signed a reseller agreement with IriTech, Inc. that allows Fulcrum Biometrics to sell the company’s line of IriShield iris recognition scanners.

IriShield is an ultra-compact, low-cost, high-quality ISO-compliant iris scanner system that makes implementation of biometric iris recognition technology both simple and affordable for use in a wide variety of applications, including time and attendance and population census.

Starting at US$190, Fulcrum is offering the IriShield as either a complete USB desktop system or as an embedded module for use in portable devices, or also in larger hardware systems, such as entry gates.

IriShield systems include an auto-capture camera module, built-in iris recognition technology and an available PKI-based security infrastructure that ensures complete data security.

“We are pleased to engage in this partnership with IriTech and offer the IriShield iris scanners in our online catalogue,” Ken Nosker, president of Fulcrum Biometrics said. “To many, iris recognition seems like a futuristic technology that is online available to the largest corporations and governments, but that is no longer the case. With its combination of low cost, compact size and high quality iris biometrics, the IriShield product line will enable rapid adoption of iris recognition technology for both civil and commercial applications around the world.”

According to the company, the iris recognition algorithms used in the IriShield modules have been top ranked both in accuracy and interoperability by the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) IREX test.

Last year, Fulcrum took home the Best Biometric Identification Solution at the Homeland Security Awards for its FbF mobileOne portable biometric fingerprint scanning accessory for iOS devices.

Recently, as reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, Fulcrum published a case study on the Bergen County Department of Human Services biometric data management system that includes Fulcrum technology.
