Dermalog AFIS sees strongest performance in NIST benchmark test


National Institute of Standards and Technology’s Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation (FpVTE) found that Dermalog Identification Systems outperformed the strongest competitors in the current eight and ten fingerprint tests, earning the top performance in recognition rates.

Dermalog’s system is capable of a throughput of 5 million fingerprints per second, which is up to 10 times faster than most competitors and approximately 40% faster than its runner-up performance.

The Dermalog speed is the biggest differentiator within the winning algorithms in the FpVTE test, as the entire group of vendors experienced very reliable accuracy rates.

Additionally, Dermalog’s database search was found to be faster than any other system, meaning that Dermalog AFIS needs up to ten times less hardware when compared with competitors.

Dermalog set the world record in 2011 in the FpVTE benchmark test, making it the world’s fastest and leading AFIS supplier. As such, the company guarantees customer satisfaction as well as top performance for all long-term AFIS investments.

In a ten fingerprint search study conducted by NIST, the Dermalog AFIS showed the best performance in ten prints.

In order to achieve reliable results, Dermalog puts highest priority on the continuous improvement of its core product: the algorithm to identify fingerprints (duplicates) in a large-scale biometric database.

“We have been and keep on revolutionizing biometric security products for law enforcement, civil governmental agencies like national registration, voter and driver registrations, health agencies, security agencies and develop solutions for access and data security, authorization and authentication services as well as mobile security,” said Gunther Mull, CEO of Dermalog.
