Zwipe Access biometric card is compatible with all popular proximity and smart card readers, including those from HID, Allegion and Farpointe
Zwipe biometric card named best product for user authentication, identification, credentialing and management

During last week's ISC West tradeshow in Las Vegas, the Zwipe Access Card, which provides an on-card fingerprint scanner with 3D capacitive technology directly on a proximity or smart card, was named best product for user authentication, identification, credentialing and management at the Security Industry Association's 2015 New Product Showcase (NPS) ceremony. The biometric card is 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.

"Being acknowledged by the SIA judging panel is an indication of both the industry's acceptance of biometrics as well as an endorsement of our product's unique value proposition in the market," added Kim Kristian Humborstad, CEO of Zwipe. "Las Vegas has been good to Zwipe as, only last May, we were named the winner of the first annual American SESAMES Award at CARTES as the best technological innovation that spanned the entire identification sector of smart cards, digital security, identification, secure transactions and contactless technology."

Enhanced security benefits

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 proximity, iCLASS or Mifare cards.

New Zwipe Access features include an advanced, cutting edge thin line fingerprint sensor improving image capture while a 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.

The Zwipe Access biometric card features

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.
