NEXT Biometrics One Touch Access readers operate on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, can be installed in minutes and seamlessly integrates into the Windows Biometric Framework. The Microsoft Windows Hello-ready readers come with a USB 2.0 full-speed port and automatically download and install the latest drivers from Windows Update Service once connected.
“Our partnership with KSI allows for an improved user experience, with rapid network access and superior data entry on low profile keys that speed workflow,” said Alain Faburel, NEXT Biometrics chief sales and marketing officer. “As communicated in our January business update, we are in the process of strengthening our presence in the identity and access management segment. Collaboration with KSI as a leading player in this sector is an important accomplishment.”
According to the announcement, adding One Touch Access readers to KSI’s patented keyboard technology will result in a compliant, multifactor authentication solution for a broad spectrum of vertical markets including banking, insurance, finance, government, telecommunications, workforce management and public safety.
NEXT Biometrics recently expanded its collaborative efforts with MK Group to now include market and product development of identity and access management applications. The company also assigned UniComm as its authorized distributor in Russia for NEXT’s access control related products.
