Werum IT Solutions, Nymi release biometric authentication wristband for pharma, biotech
The newly launched K.ME-IN is integrated with Werum’s PAS-X Manufacturing Execution System (MES) for pharma and biotech manufacturing.
Users in shop floors can now easily authenticate themselves through Nymi’s smart wristband. Future plans include adding biometrics such as iris scan, facial and fingerprint recognition for user authentication, or a combination of each. Based on their biometric identity, each user is assigned a unique wearable that can be worn under any type of clothing. The wristband’s top feature, the company says, is transmitting the user’s identity until removed.
By leveraging biometric authentication, users no longer rely on user names and passwords, PIN codes or badges, and can benefit from secure authentication that lets only logged-in users to make entries.
“We are convinced that having Nymi as part of our K.ME-IN biometric authentication solution is going to make our pharmaceutical and biotech customers even more productive,” says Obay Alchorbaji, Product Manager, Werum IT Solutions. “With our new solution we address the very real challenge in the pharmaceutical and biopharmaceutical market of ensuring secure and fast authentication, while also meeting compliance and data integrity requirements. We help our customers cut authentication times by up to 75%, thus significantly increasing their production efficiency.”
“We are delighted that Werum has chosen to directly integrate Nymi into their PAS-X system, and have already seen the tremendous increase in productivity and security that this partnership brings to the production environments of their customers,” adds Andrew Foxcroft, VP at Nymi. “It will ease the authentication procedures for pharma and biotech operators so that they can concentrate better on their task at hand.”
Two years ago, the two partnered to develop joint solutions for employee smart authentication on the pharmaceutical shop floor, to ensure data integrity and boost efficiency in pharma and biotech production.
