Lumidigm and Verimetrics Collaborate on Biometrics-Based Single Sign-On Solutions
Lumidigm has announced that Verimetrics has selected Lumidigm’s Mercury and Venus fingerprint readers as its preferred biometric platforms for SmartProfile deployments in a wide range of environments, including hospitals, emergency response vehicles and retail stores. With Lumidigm sensors, Verimetrics’ biometric single sign-on (SSO) solution succeeds in real-world conditions ranging from sub-zero temperatures to the use of latex gloves.
“Our SmartProfile solution provides enterprise SSO capabilities that require strong authentication technologies, such as Lumidigm fingerprint sensors, our preferred biometric component,” says Guillaume Turbide, vice president of business development and marketing at Verimetrics. “Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging technology allows Verimetrics to recommend our SmartProfile solution with utmost confidence to those customers who have applications in a wide range of environmental and usage conditions. Users will get a good read the moment they lay their finger on the Lumidigm sensor.”
“We are honored to partner with Verimetrics to deliver a market-leading biometric SSO solution,” said Dave Cullen of Lumidigm’s healthcare solutions. “SmartProfile software provides streamlined access to multiple systems within the business enterprise. Lumidigm extends the Verimetrics value proposition with our patented multispectral imaging technology that authenticates in non-standard conditions, such as moisture, dryness, dust, low temperatures or worn and damaged fingerprints. Gone are the days when end-users must present their fingerprint over and over again to authenticate. Lumidigm fingerprint sensors eliminate these problems, enhancing the user’s experience while improving productivity.”
Lumidigm multispectral fingerprint sensors capture fingerprint data beneath the surface of the skin so that dryness, or even damaged or worn fingers, creates no problems for reliable reads. Using multiple wavelengths of light and advanced polarization techniques to extract unique fingerprint characteristics from both the surface and subsurface of the skin, Lumidigm’s sensors provide results that are more consistent, more inclusive and more tamper-resistant than conventional biometric readers.
SmartProfile readers are used in healthcare organizations, financial centers, government operations, retail stores, offices, research centers, airports, shipping ports and national borders among other applications.
