BioSec enters biometric tech partnership with Assa Abloy access control subsidiary
BioSec has entered a technological partnership with Assa Abloy subsidiary Seawing to develop integrated biometric solutions for access control, by combining the latter’s RFID access control system with BioSec’s palm vein recognition system, the company announced.
BioSec’s BS LifePass biometric authentication solution has been integrated with Assa Abloy’s Seawing SIS RFID access control system for external verification. The palm vein recognition system measures the vein structure within the hand, which means the palm vein template cannot be forged, according to the announcement.
“Even though most people think about RFID systems and palm vein recognition (biometrics) as competitors, we recognised that complementing each other is better than competing,” said in a prepared statement BioSec Group CEO, Péter Györgydeák. “This way we can join forces and combine the advantages of our technologies, bringing the best of RFID and palm vein recognition in one solution to the customers.”
The two companies share a common goal of delivering secure and convenient access for their customers, and the Seawing access control system is already used in different industries worldwide.
In December 2019, Fujitsu palm vein recognition integrated in new biometric access control offerings from Recogtech and BioSec.
This month, Assa Abloy purchased biometric access control developer Biosite and received an SIA award.
