SecuGen to showcase FBI certified fingerprint reader at CES 2019


SecuGen announced this week it will be featuring the Hamster Pro 10, an FBI certified and ultra-slim fingerprint reader, at the 2019 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

According to the announcement, the Hamster Pro 10 is a sleek and ultra-slim fingerprint reader priced for large scale deployments. It is FBI certified for high image quality called for by FIPS 201 PIV and Mobile ID FAP 10 environments. The Hamster Pro 10 reader is compatible with SecuGen’s free SDKs for Windows, Linux, and Android, and works right out of the box with Windows Hello for fingerprint login to Windows 10 computers.

“Our engineering team did a great job with this new fingerprint reader, commented Dan Riley, VP of Engineering. “To begin with, we designed an optical sensor module that is the smallest FAP 10 optical sensor in the industry. This was accomplished without sacrificing quality which was no small feat.”

“We are continually expanding our product line in response to the requirements of our partners,” added Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “Our focus is, and has always been, to design and deliver products that can help our partners succeed in the marketplace. The Hamster Pro 10 continues this focus.”

SecuGen will also be showcasing the U10 optical fingerprint sensor at CES 2019.
