Biometric Swipe Access Card
Dual Level Authentication Without Changing Existing Card Readers
With increasing focus on Information Security, compliance and the need for robust access control, the move to dual authentication and biometrics is gathering momentum. To enable this transition, EDP Europe now offers a biometric swipe access card that provides dual level authentication without needing to invest in replacing existing card reader infrastructure. The card is enrolled in the same way as existing contactless cards but has on board biometric fingerprint technology to tie the card to a specific individual.
Being unique to the user, the card only communicates and provides access when the card owner activates the card using their fingerprint. Bio-metric data is stored on the card only, therefore eliminating the need to store and manage biometric data on the network. The card is fully compatible with Proximity, NFC, ISO 14443 and ISO 15693 based access control systems.
These Biometric swipe access cards can be used in conjunction with the rack access control systems, and provides even greater rack security to the TZ Centurion rack access control system.
