HID Global to showcase its expanded biometrics portfolio at connect:ID

 

HID Global will be showcasing its expanded Lumidigm biometrics offering at next week’s connect:ID conference in Washington, D.C.

The company’s biometrics portfolio now includes tamper protection and encryption capabilities that have been used in multiple bank deployments to secure over one billion transactions per year.

Company executives will also be participating in the conference opening address and will be speaking on panel discussions during the conference on the use of trusted identities in today’s increasingly connected digital world.

In a statement, the company says that the Lumidigm V-Series V4xx fingerprint authentication solution “simplifies and protects end-user financial transactions while eliminating fraud and protecting identities at ATMs, teller counters, and for other high-value transactions”.

The sensors and modules leverage the proven biometric performance and fingerprint liveness detection capabilities of its multispectral imaging technology while adding data encryption, tamper detection/response and key management for trusted user authentication.

“Biometric authentication supported by risk-appropriate, multi-layered security is not only important but, when done correctly, is simple and cost-effective to deploy, while delivering the additional benefit of a significantly improved user experience,” said Paul Butler, vice president and general manager, Biometrics, with HID Global. “We’ve proven this approach in custom implementations and are now making it more broadly accessible with the addition of several standard cryptographic options that simplify and speed deployments for banks and other users that need a highly secure transaction environment in this era of frequent and sophisticated cyberattacks.”

BiometricUpdate.com recently spoke with Phil Scarfo, VP Worldwide Marketing, Biometrics at HID Global, who discussed combining biometrics with PIV to improve airport security, the surge in biometrics adoption by the financial industry, and implementing a biometric identification card system for Angolan citizens.
