Zwipe Access biometric cards can be issued to key staff & personnel providing enhanced security benefits of 2-factor biometric authentication without any changes to existing access control system

Channel partners have found Zwipe Demo Kit valuable to both conduct testing & for end user presentations

Zwipe recently announced the launch of its new Channel Partner Program with more than 10 initial partners already established, covering US, Europe, Middle East, Russia, Africa and Mexico. The Zwipe Access Card, which provides an on-card fingerprint scanner with 3D capacitive technology directly on a proximity or smart card, recently named best product for user authentication, identification, credentialing and management at the Security Industry Association’s 2015 New Product Showcase (NPS) ceremony, is being used by organisations wanting to add biometric authorisation to their verification process without having to swap out or add a single biometric reader. The Zwipe Access biometric card is compatible with all popular proximity and smart card readers, including those from HID, Allegion and Farpointe.

"We are thrilled to announce our partnerships with these established, globally dispersed resellers and integrators," said Robert Fee, Director of Sales (Access Control) at Zwipe. "We are also very appreciative of our partners’ patience as we continue to ramp up production to meet existing orders of the much anticipated Zwipe Access card.”

Zwipe Demo Kit – valuable to conduct testing & for end user presentations

Channel partners have found the Zwipe Demo Kit highly valuable to both conduct testing and for end user presentations. Adds Fee, “Demo Kit orders have exceeded expectations, allowing us to create new Kit combinations to address global market interest. The Kits can be purchased directly from our website and payable by PayPal for quick and easy ordering.”

Zwipe Access biometric cards can be issued to key staff and personnel providing the enhanced security benefits of 2-factor biometric authentication without any changes to their existing access control system software or readers. They simply add the card into their EAC system in the same way they incorporate their present 125 kHz Proximity, iCLASS or Mifare cards.

The new Zwipe Access features include an advanced, cutting edge thin line fingerprint sensor improving image capture while new, patent pending, low power algorithm further reduces the already low false rejection rate. In addition, a replaceable standard coin cell battery provides years of card life.

Accepts pressure-sensitive labels

The enhanced Zwipe Access biometric card features a clamshell design with a slot for a lanyard. The biometric card also accepts pressure-sensitive labels that let organisations personalise the credential by adding employee photographs, company logos, department codes and other information.
