Suprema’s biometric devices are integrated into the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller Suprema, a leading global provider of biometrics and security technology, is pleased to announce that Suprema biometric devices can now be paired with Axis Communications and its AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller through ENTERTECH SYSTEMS’ BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform. This new integration helps enterprises around the world successfully deploy access control systems with leading biometric technology. Integration between Suprema and Axis “The integration of Suprema biometric technology with AXIS A1001 represents two industry leaders combining the best technology in their respective fields for the maximum user benefits,” said Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema Inc. “The infusion of biometrics into Axis' system that has strength in video management will offer customers the benefits of true identity with enhanced security and extra convenience.” Suprema’s biometric devices are integrated into the AXIS A1001 Network Door Controller, an open, non-proprietary platform. The Controller meets the requirements for advanced enterprise systems as well as smaller installations. The integration allows users of AXIS A1001 to access biometric templates on an individual user basis without having to manage the dual data entry traditionally found in stand-alone biometric solutions. This is accomplished with a real-time seamless sync of biometric technology into AXIS A1001 through ENTERTECH SYSTEMS’ BioConnect application. Through BioConnect’s simple graphical user interface, users can access the enrollment window to search for a user/badge and add biometric templates. With this integration Axis customers now have the ability to easily and simply integrate proven biometrics into their access control systems. “We are pleased to provide our customers with cutting edge biometrics for secure access control,” said Bruce Stewart, access control business development manager for Axis Communications. “Suprema’s advanced biometric technologies integrated with our A1001 network door controller will provide our customers with an integrated system that includes truly easy to use and manage biometrics.” Integration will allow mainstream adoption of biometrics “This new relationship with Axis will enable their customers to fast track and overcome three major obstacles to mainstream adoption of biometrics,” said Rob Douglas, CEO of ENTERTECH SYSTEMS. “Cost, complexity and user on-boarding are all addressed by our BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform, which leverages Suprema’s leading biometric technology.” These companies participated at ISC West 2015 from April 15-17 in Las Vegas. Suprema and ENTERTECH SYSTEMS were at booth #17101 while Axis was at booth #14059.
This new integration manages true identities of employees, visitors & the general public Suprema, a leading global provider of biometrics and security technology and Genetec, Inc., a manufacturer of open platform, unified IP security solutions, have integrated their systems offering an advanced identity management solution. The companies have just made this exciting announcement: Suprema biometric devices can now be paired with Genetec’s Security Center unified security platform through Entertech Systems’ BioConnect 3.0 identity management platform. Together, these products simplify the process of deploying, enrolling and managing biometrics for secure access control in any situation. The Suprema devices integrated with Genetec Security Center include BioStation T2, BioStation, BioEntry Plus, BioEntry W, BioLite Net and BioMini. Enhanced security & extra convenience “Suprema is very pleased to integrate its global leading biometrics technology into Genetec Security Center. The benefits of True Identity will offer enhanced security and extra convenience for the Synergis access control features in Genetec Security Center,” said Young S. Moon, Vice President of Suprema. “This integration includes a wide range of premium biometric-driven access control devices that are suitable for indoor and outdoor installation, and will efficiently meet a wide range of system requirements.” This new integration greatly facilitates managing the true identities of employees, visitors and the general public. Customers no longer have to worry about the security risks involved in approximation technologies like cards, PINs, fobs or keys – which can be borrowed, shared, lost or stolen. Suprema works with customers in a wide variety of markets to ensure finger and face recognition is used effectively every day for secure access to both physical facilities and software applications. Proven biometrics and centralised monitoring Genetec's flagship solution, Security Center, is an open-platform IP security system that merges IP access control and video management within a single unified solution. A seamless and real-time link between BioConnect and Security Center allows cardholder profiles to be captured centrally in Security Center, thereby eliminating duplicate activities, such as the dual cardholder data entry typically found in traditional integrations between standalone systems. Additionally, access control events generated by biometric devices can be monitored centrally through Security Center, while activity reports from doors with Suprema biometric devices can be consolidated with traditional doors and also linked with video for greater situational awareness. Genetec customers will benefit from the added features of proven biometrics, and centralised monitoring and activity reporting for traditional and biometric devices. "With this new integration between Security Center and Suprema biometric devices, our customers will overcome some of the major barriers to biometric adoption" “With this new integration between Security Center and Suprema biometric devices, our customers will be able to overcome some of the major barriers to biometric adoption," said François Brouillet, Access Control Product Manager for Genetec, Inc. "BioConnect is an easy-to-use system integrated with Security Center. The simple enrollment process offers convenience and security when incorporating cutting-edge biometrics." Market leaders coming together to enable easier adoption of biometrics “Genetec is a leader in unified physical IP security management systems worldwide. By aligning with Suprema and Entertech Systems, Genetec is able to offer a truly integrated biometric access control system with its video security and ALPR capabilities for the first time," said Rob Douglas, CEO of Entertech Systems. "This integration through our BioConnect identity management platform is a successful example of market leaders coming together to enable easier adoption of biometrics. At Entertech Systems, we are purpose-built to help access control systems and end users overcome the three main obstacles to mainstream adoption of biometrics, including cost, complexity and on-boarding users." The Suprema line of biometric devices and Entertech Systems’ BioConnect application are now available through Genetec, Inc. On April 15-17, Genetec, Suprema and Entertech Systems will be at ISC West 2015 in Las Vegas. Genetec will be at booth #10053, and Suprema and Entertech Systems at booth #17101.
