User-centric design and robust anti-spoofing technology allow the company to offer optimum end-user experience without compromising performance and security
LONDON, Dec. 18, 2019 /CNW/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the global biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan recognises IDEMIA with the 2019 Global Company of the Year Award for its groundbreaking biometric technology that defends against biometric spoof attacks and cyber threats. Its portfolio of high-end solutions and services leverages multimodal technology that empowers its clients and partners to deliver biometric authentication and identification services that streamline the end-user experience. Leveraging the concept of Augmented Identity and its expertise in biometrics (e.g., fingerprint, iris, facial recognition), IDEMIA creates an identity that ensures privacy and trust and guarantees secure, authenticated, and verifiable transactions.
"IDEMIA supports its channel partners through the entire sales and product lifecycle. It provides on-site engineering support for larger projects and extensive training on its devices. Overall, its industry-leading technology, unrivaled customer support, and next-generation innovations earn IDEMIA an eminent position in the global biometrics market," said Ram Ravi, Industry Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
IDEMIA's MorphoWave™ Compact wall-mounted, touchless fingerprint access and time-and-attendance terminal is a fast and accurate access control solution, which can deploy in any location. "This newest addition to IDEMIA's range of MorphoWave™ readers works seamlessly with the MorphoWave™ Tower previously launched by the company to deliver frictionless biometric access control in high-traffic lobbies. MorphoWave™ Compact can scan and verify more than 45 people per minute with industry-leading accept/reject rates," noted Ravi.
In the field of fingerprint technology, another innovation of IDEMIA is the F.CODE smartcard with its integrated fingerprint sensor. IDEMIA designed the F.CODE card for biometric payment and cardholder authentication, leveraging existing banking, retail and network infrastructure. "The technology allows users to biometrically authenticate themselves directly on the smartcard, ensuring transactions are only performed when the legitimate owner is using the card," observed Ravi.
Meanwhile, IDEMIA's OneLook provides a non-intrusive, simple-to-use multi-biometric capture device that can integrate into existing touchpoints or used as a turnkey solution for a boarding gate or service counter. This solution guarantees high-level accuracy while delivering high throughput. It can capture both iris and facial biometrics in less than three seconds, on average, as people walk through the capture field. Embedded anti-spoofing technology uses auto-focus for iris capture and three-dimensional video tracking for facial recognition.
IDEMIA also offers powerful facial recognition technology for law enforcement, government, and commercial entities that need solutions beyond traditional video surveillance. Until now, video surveillance was mostly used as a reactive technology, but IDEMIA's Augmented Vision solution redefines the information value extracted from the surveillance infrastructure. IDEMIA leverages live and recorded video from a spectrum of sources, as well as still images, and through powerful Artificial Intelligence-based algorithms, detects and tags massive amounts of valuable metadata.
