Nymi partners with ThinManager on biometric-enabled touchless authentication solutions
Nymi has partnered with Rockwell Automation’s centralized thin client and terminal server management provider ThinManager to develop biometric-enabled wearable authentication solutions for industrial automation.
Building on last year’s partnership, Nymi Band’s biometric capabilities will now be expanded to provide access control features through compatibility with ThinManager software.
Together with the new collaboration, Nymi also announced it has joined the Rockwell Automation PartnerNetwork, a group of industrial companies collaborating on the development of industrial solutions.
Nymi Bands enable biometric authentication with zero-trust security principles, while also trying to address challenges related to productivity, compliance, safety, and culture. Each band is unique and is assigned during enrolment to a single user. The device can then only be switched on via the assigned user’s fingerprint biometric. After authentication is confirmed, the Nymi band stays in an “always-on” state, using ECG for continuous biometric liveness checks.
The band also incorporates on-body detection sensors and will switch off the system if the user removes it.
Now, the Nymi Band will incorporate access control features for the ThinManager software.
“We see our product working side by side with ThinManager to help companies be secure, safe, and efficient in their day to day operations,” commented Andrew Foxcroft, Vice President of Nymi. “The enterprise-class, secure industrial wearable Nymi Band, combined with ThinManager’s knowledge of the modern factory, provides a solution to address pain points in Pharma and highly regulated manufacturing processes.”
Nymi will showcase the new collaboration at the Rockwell Automation At Home Fair, taking place online between November 16 and 20.
At the event, Nymi’s CEO, Chris Sullivan, will speak during two different sessions, discussing respectively the necessity of biometric solutions in cybersecurity, and the importance of digital identity in the workplace.
