Zwipe to showcase biometric smart card at ISC West


Zwipe has announced that it will launch a new biometric smart card with an embedded fingerprint sensor at the ISC West Exhibition, set to be held at Las Vegas’ Sands Convention Center from April 2-4.

According to the company, the embedded fingerprint scanner uses 3D capacitive technology to process prints and features universal compatibility with all ISO 14443 readers, including aptiQ and iCLASS SE. In addition, the new smart card is DESFIRE EV1 and MIFARE Classic compatible.

“This is a natural evolution of the ID card,” Kim Humborstad, CEO of Zwipe said. “ID cards have evolved from the barcode to magnetic stripe to proximity, to smart and now, to biometrics on the card.”

Once a user’s fingerprint is verified, the card activates encrypted communication with the lock or reader. No data exchange is conducted and the fingerprint template doesn’t leave the card.

Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, in December 2013, Zwipe announced an integration with Fingerprint Cards for an access control card with an embedded sensor.

Also in December, Zwipe announced that it had raised an additional $3.5 million in Series A funding.
