EyeLock updates biometric app with physical and logical access control
EyeLock has announced the release of version 4.1 of its iris biometrics-based identity management software application, EyeLock Identity Suite (EIS), which is a powerful and easy-to-use browser-based management system allowing customers secure access to their facilities across all systems and devices.
According to the announcement, the EIS also enables secure physical and logical biometric access in a single enterprise application and can work on EyeLock’s nano iXT, nano EXT, or nano NXT devices in an interoperable manner, while also giving users access to their Windows computers with the use of EyeLock’s ‘myris’ iris recognition device.
EyeLock launched mask detection and access control capabilities for the nano iXT iris recognition scanner in November.
Apart from the software’s flexibility across all of EyeLock’s biometric systems and devices, it also has the ability to integrate with some popular physical access control systems. Some of the systems listed by the company include Lenel OnGuard, Software House C•CURE 9000, Genetec Security Center, PACOM GMS, AMAG Symmetry Access Control, Open Options DNA Fusion, Avigilon Access Control Manager, Honeywell Pro-Watch, RS2 Access It!, and it is compatible with PSIA PLAI.
EyeLock Vice President of Engineering, Dr. Michael Petrov, said EIS is the only biometric application today that supports both logical and physical access control within the same enterprise system.
“Today’s release will allow our customers to utilize the same biometric record for physical access to a facility and logical access to computing devices inside the facility, thus providing a unified biometric identity management process for the enterprise,” said Dr. Petrov.
Jeff Carter, the company’s chief executive officer, said it were proud of their product, stating that “…combining highly secure physical and logical access control in one easily deployed space will be a breakthrough with long-term benefits in a multitude of markets.”
