Ipsidy and Ayonix partner to develop 3D facial recognition access management system
The high-speed performance and edge device detection capabilities of Ayonix’ technology will be incorporated into mobile biometric and digital access credential management application Access by Ipsidy to provide effective security without requiring security lineups. The companies say their combined technologies filter facial images from IP cameras and video feeds and rapidly match them to stored images, providing site attendants and security personnel with cutting-edge biometric tools with minimum capital investment.
“We are delighted to work with Ipsidy to help expand our offering,” says Mike Broggie, CEO of Ayonix. “We believe that they share our passion for innovation and forward thinking, while being focused on providing secure stable, solutions for our customers.”
The new agreement gives Ipsidy exclusive global use of the “Dynamic Reference Database” functionality through Ayonix. The Access platform continuously matches identities against customer-defined “authorized,” “unknown,” and “watch” lists. A simple user interface is provided to enroll authorized users, and customers can enable tenants or residents to invite visitors and issue temporary guest passes through the Ipsidy Access mobile app, which updates the system in real-time.
“Ipsidy is pleased to partner with Ayonix to add the edge device detection capabilities of their 3D facial recognition software to our Access solution,” Philip Beck, CEO of Ipsidy said. “Together we are creating the next generation of frictionless, biometric access management products. Security resellers and integrators can offer the combined solution that provides security, control and certainty for physical access management, that is cost effective for their clients and convenient for the location’s daily users.”
The combined solution can be integrated with existing IP camera deployments, and will be pitched to businesses, institutions, schools, hospitals, and event venues as a cost-effective way to streamline security operations, speed up entry lines, and combine the assurance of biometrics with user convenience.
The combined solution is expected to launch in early 2019, and the companies will demonstrate the integration at ISC East on November 14 and 15 at the Javits Center in New York.
