Enterprise software systems for SmartMetric biometric dual access and payment cards near completion
SmartMetric is adding a software security management system for banks to its MIFARE RFID combined biometric door and cybersecurity access card offering.
The multi-function fingerprint smart cards were introduced in September, and SmartMetric intends to sell the system for a one-time charge with no per-card licensing fee.
“Our new biometric security card is a tremendous new technological advance in the multi-billion dollar security market,” says SmartMetric President and CEO Chaya Hendrick. “We are excited that we are now able to offer a complete solution that has our biometric card working across an enterprise protecting both physical access and network computer log on. We are bringing the power of biometrics across the enterprise ensuring that only the legitimate card holder is able to activate and use their card based on their fingerprint biometrics.”
An enterprise software system which the customer installs on the company server is bundled with the card, allowing each card to open some or all doors in a company’s facility. SmartMetric says it is putting the final touches on the back-end software system to enable smooth and rapid deployment of the fully integrated solution.
The company is also in the final stages of developing back-end systems to go with its biometric credit and debit cards, with work being done to integrate it with existing bank systems.
“We are very excited with the pace of our final stage in integrating our biometric card into what are very complex back-end card systems in both the security world and the banking credit/debit card world. After all of these years in the hardware development of our amazing biometric card, we are now in the final stages of seeing our cards being able to be used in two enormous markets, banking and security,” Hendrick said.
Goode Intelligence estimates that 579 million biometric payment cards will be in use by 2023.
