Biometric Access Control System With Vascular Recognition

L-1 Identity Solutions : 26 March, 2010  (New Product)
The 4G FingerVein Station from L-1 Identity Solutions uses biometric vascular recognition technology to grant access based on vein patterns in the finger, adding to their existing range of fingerprint and face recognition devices
Biometric Access Control System With Vascular Recognition
L-1 Identity Solutions has announced a new access control solution based on finger vein recognition technology, the 4G FingerVein Station. This is the first L-1 solution to incorporate vein recognition and the Company's line of access control devices now support vein, finger and face recognition.

Very dry, dirty or worn fingers pose a challenge for standard fingerprint readers and the 4G FingerVein Station offers an alternative for these conditions found commonly in industrial and manufacturing environments. The use of near-infrared light to gather biometric data means that the condition of the skin surface does not affect accurate processing. Vein patterns are extremely difficult to forge and impossible to manipulate because veins are inside the body and invisible to the eye, making this a uniquely secure biometric modality.

The 4G FingerVein Station utilizes finger vein sensor technology from Hitachi and is built on the 4G access control technology platform from L-1. The platform supports a wide range of security requirements, offering options for single, two or three factor authentication and integration of proximity and smart card readers. It also includes added safety measures with a duress finger option. The platform enables the devices to scale, storing half a million templates for 1:1 verification, the largest template capacity in the industry. Lower cost of ownership and reduced maintenance costs are another important benefit afforded by the platform. The devices leverage the latest communication standards including Wireless LAN (WiFi) and take full advantage of IP connectivity for remote device management. They also use replaceable sensor modules for quick and efficient maintenance in the field. Biometric-enabled time and attendance capabilities in the 4G access control devices increase workforce management efficiency. The units include programmable function keys and can send real-time workforce notifications as well as store two million transaction logs.

"With nearly half a million of our access control solutions in use today around the world, our customers have come to rely upon L-1 to deliver a faster and more accurate means of granting employee access to buildings and secure areas using multiple modalities without compromising security," said Rich Agostinelli, President of the Biometrics / Enterprise Access Division.

The 4G FingerVein Station can be used with other 4G access control devices from L-1 to create a mixed installation to meet various requirements. All of the units can be administered through a single management application, SecureAdmin, that monitors and controls any 4G device. The units will be available through third party partners and suppliers beginning in June 2010.
