Werum integrates Integral Biometrics for pharma and biotech access control
Werum has a new biometric access control solution for the pharmaceutical industry developed through a partnership with Integral Biometrics, Touchless Biometric Systems (TBS) rolls out 2D Time with fingerprint recognition for workforce management, and Trueface has picked up another facial recognition-based access control contract with the U.S. Air Force.
A range of biometric authentication methods including face, iris and fingerprint recognition are now available to workers in the pharmaceutical and biotech industries using the Werum PAS-X MES, through a partnership between Integral Biometrics and Körber’s pharmaceutical business area. Werum is a subsidiary of Körber.
Integral’s technology will be integrated with the Werum K.ME-IN solution for fast and secure log-ins by Werum PAS-X MES users. Integral is providing EyeLock iris matching software and HID Global’s DigitalPersona fingerprint biometrics. Windows Hello-compatible sensors are used for fingerprint and facial recognition.
“Our collaboration with Integral Biometrics represents a milestone in offering the regulated life sciences industry the most secure and seamless way of authenticating to Werum PAS-X MES and other systems, devices and machines,” says Körber Business Area Pharma Product Manager Software Obay Alchorbaji. “Meeting all compliance and data integrity requirements, we can thus help our customers cut authentication times by up to 75 percent!”
Integral provides multi-factor biometric authentication through its ID At-a-Glance and ID At-a-Touch solutions, which offer efficiency, compliance, and security, according to the company, and can be provided cost-effectively with shared iris scanners at workstations for two-second authentication with liveness detection.
TBS launches new fingerprint workforce management device
Touchless Biometric Systems has launched the 2D Time large-screen fingerprint recognition device for workforce management and time and attendance use cases.
The new 2D Time features a 9-inch screen that accommodates several touch-screen buttons for a variety of actions such as retrieving attendance status, triggering events, or filling out surveys. The device provides LAN, WLAN and 4G connectivity, and several opportunities for integration with third-party software applications through TBS BioManager. The software also enables multi-factor authentication with PIN or RFID factors.
The customization features of the device enable its use in staff, customer loyalty, and POS solutions, and a biometric credential can be used as a form of e-signature for staff authorization. The device also connects to other devices and systems for use in smart building systems.
Trueface wins another Air Force base contract
Trueface has won a third contract from the U.S. Air Force for contactless access control at Eglin Air Force Base and Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 .
The contract was awarded through the Air Force’s AFWERX and Small Business Innovation Research Program (SBIR) program, and the terms were not disclosed.
Trueface’s facial recognition will check each person entering the bases against the National Crime Information Center database, while avoiding the need for physical contact between visitors and Security Forces Squadron or other host units, and reducing traffic congestion, according to the announcement.
