Versatile fingerprint-activated contactless credentials for access control

ABC SECURITY ACCESS SYSTEMS has partnered with Zwipe to provide biometric access cards that works seamlessly with existing 125 kHz or 13.56MHz infrastructure, without the need to upgrade or replace any readers or backend systems. Only after activation by a fingerprint scan will the card allow communication with a reader. Zwipe combines the security of biometric authentication with the speed and convenience of contactless credentials.

With the Zwipe Access card, you can upgrade your existing access control solution to biometrics immediately and with little effort. With on-card enrolment and authentication, the card is unique to the user and only the authorized card holder can activate card communication with the reader. This means no more lending or borrowing of ID badges and a dramatic reduction in security concerns related to lost or stolen ID credentials.

No biometric exchange of data is conducted with external systems providing secure template management, eliminating integration, management and protection of a fingerprint database. Plus, privacy is maintained, no fingerprint is captured or retained by the issuing organization. » Learn more
