SecuGen adds SDK Plugin for Remote Desktop to portfolio of free biometric software
The newly released SecuGen SDK Plugin for Microsoft Remote Desktop allows users of Microsoft Remote Desktop Services to scan their fingerprint with a SecuGen biometric reader connected to their local device and use that fingerprint to remotely authenticate to a SecuGen biometric application over a secure Remote Desktop session.
According to the announcement, the release of this SDK plugin opens the door to more opportunities for software developers to roll out SecuGen’s optical fingerprint readers across more remote desktop platforms, which now include the Remote Desktop Protocol for Windows and Independent Computing Architecture for Citrix.
“Our engineering team is dedicated to continually advancing the ability of our partners to address their customer’s requirements,” said Dan Riley, SecuGen’s VP of Engineering. “The SDK Plugin for Remote Desktop now makes it possible to extend the security benefits of fingerprint authentication to virtual environments.”
The plugin is available for free for up to two simultaneous connections. Additional connections require the purchase of a license.
SecuGen demonstrated its new Unity 20 Bluetooth fingerprint reader last month at ISC West in Las Vegas.
