BIO-key fingerprint readers available on Amazon.com


Biometric software and hardware solution provider BIO-key International is expanding its enterprise sales outreach with the availability of its compact SideSwipe and EcoID USB fingerprint readers on Amazon.com.

The fingerprint readers are initially available in a three-pack configuration for $119.97 and are targeted to enterprise customers. The Amazon arrangement allows for volume fulfillment of BIO-key products, in a streamlined, cost effective manner.

SideSwipe and EcoID are natively supported within the Microsoft Windows Hello biometric sign-in platform, as well as Microsoft Passport, allowing customers to sign in to web-hosted and local applications with a touch of their finger.

“Interest in our ‘plug and play’ compact fingerprint readers has been remarkable. We’re receiving inquiries across a broad spectrum of enterprise customers, which include small to midsize organizations along with Fortune 500 companies.,” said Mike DePasquale, Chairman & CEO. “Regardless of the organization’s size, today’s enterprise customers recognize the need to increase the security of their IT assets. Addressing this fundamental need, Microsoft has opened the door for Windows 10 customers to leverage biometric authentication with the introduction of Windows Hello, and to date over 300 million copies of Windows 10 are already in use. BIO-key is committed to helping accelerate the growth of the emerging biometric marketplace. Partnering with Amazon allows us to address growing enterprise interest while also positioning us to serve the consumer market as it evolves.”

BIO-key has been working to educate the enterprise market about the native support of biometric sign-in within Windows Hello, Passport and Active Directory and has published a variety of content on its website to explain and illustrate BIO-key hardware and software integration with the Microsoft Identity solutions used by nearly all enterprises and consumers around the world.

Just last month, BIO-key International announced a sales partnership with Moroccan technology provider Arthur & Co. to provide the company’s portfolio of biometric identity and multi-factor authentication solutions to enterprise and government customers throughout the Middle East and North Africa regions.
