We are in the business of creating a more secure world and therefore design our products to compliment others that share this mission,” said Colleen Dunlap, CEO and Co-Founder of StoneLock. “The StoneLock Pro integration with the Boon Edam Circlelock is a brilliant example of a highly successful integration that works together to fulfill this goal while meeting the needs of both the consumer for ease of use and the security practitioner for reliable access control.” "The big upside of today’s biometric tech is that the recognition is super-fast" Multi-factor authentication “Our customers appreciate seeing completely integrated solutions that include access control, identity management and piggybacking prevention,” said Mark Borto, CEO and President of Boon Edam Inc. “The big upside of today’s biometric tech is that the recognition is super-fast, making our security turnstiles and doors work better – they keep out the unauthorised users but for everyone else, it’s a smooth, fast journey into secure areas. We are delighted to work together with StoneLock to showcase today’s multi-factor authentication in action while here at ASIS.” ASIS exhibit attendees will have the opportunity to experience the integration of StoneLock Pro with the Boon Edam Circlelock and Turnlock EL first hand on the ASIS exhibitor floor. Boon Edam Turnlock 200 EL The Boon Edam Turnlock 200 EL is a transparent, full height turnstile that combines simple and reliable operations with an attractive and transparent design to suit the aesthetic needs of an indoor environment. Verification of identity for entry is gained through the integration with StoneLock Pro proprietary near infrared (NIR) technology, which measures over 2,000 points of facial reflectivity in less than a second. Boon Edam Circlelock The Boon Edam Circlelock (wall mount option), a half circular portal with a curved sliding door that attaches to an existing wall and swing door, provides a rigorous identity and piggybacking prevention solution when combined with StoneLock Pro. Upon authorisation from an external access control system, the Circlelock opens the primary entry door. Once the user has entered the portal, the StereoVision 2 system determines that the user is alone, which prompts the StoneLock biometric identification solution to validate the identity of the user. When a clear signal is given, the secondary door opens and the user can enter the secured area.
StoneLock Pro’s proprietary NIR technology measures over 2,000 points of reflectivity at the sub-dermal level StoneLock, a designer and manufacturer of secure facial-recognition access control solutions, announces that it is participating at ISC West, April 4-7, 2017 at the Sands Expo in Las Vegas. In addition to the StoneLock exhibit space at Booth #7040, StoneLock technology will be demonstrated with industry partners AMAG at Booth #10053, Boon Edam at Booth #8037, HID Global at Booth #11063, Hirsch by Identiv at Booth #L6 and TYCO Security Products at Booth #20005. “The past year has realised unprecedented growth in sales, partnerships and product advancements for StoneLock and we look forward to returning to ISC West for our fourth consecutive year since coming to market in 2013,” said CEO and Co-Founder Colleen Dunlap. “This year, StoneLock is excited to unveil the latest innovations with our industry leading StoneLock Pro devices, which provide a superior way to confidently and securely verify identities, whether used as a standalone solution, or as part of an integrated security system.” Near Infrared (NIR) Technology StoneLock Pro’s proprietary near infrared (NIR) technology measures over 2,000 points of reflectivity at the sub-dermal level and creates an encrypted reference file that never contains personally identifiable information (PII), making it less susceptible to typical security and privacy-laden vulnerabilities associated with photo-based facial recognition systems. With an accuracy rate of less than one in a quarter million, (less than 0.0004% False Acceptance Rate) it is ideal for users who recognise the inherent weaknesses of standalone access badges or PINs that can get lost, stolen, or shared. StoneLock’s frictionless and reliable verification of identity is quickly gaining acceptance in the most critical and rigorous applications enterprise security has to offer with adoption by over a third of the Fortune 100 companies as their enterprise biometric of choice for access control.
