DERMALOG AFIS Emerges as Performance Winner in NIST Benchmark Test

HAMBURG, Germany, April 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --

In the current eight and ten fingerprint tests DERMALOG by far outperforms the strongest competitors, showing outstanding performance in recognition rates. While always maintaining high accuracy, the system is capable of a throughput of 5.000.000 fingerprints per second. Hence, the speed proves up to be ten times faster than most competitors and even 40% faster than its runner-up performance.

As a consequence, the DERMALOG speed makes the difference within the winning algorithms in the FpVTE test, as a group of vendors reach very reliable accuracy rates. In addition to this, DERMALOG's database search is faster than any other system. Thus, DERMALOG AFIS needs up to ten times less hardware in comparison with competitors.

After setting the world record in 2011, the FpVTE benchmark test confirms DERMALOG's status as the world's fastest and leading AFIS supplier.

Hence, DERMALOG guarantees customer satisfaction as well as top performance regarding all long-term AFIS investments. The Hamburg, Germany-based company is one of only five persistent suppliers. Since 2003, the year of the last benchmark test, more than 70% of all FpVTE participants have no longer taken part in the 2012 FpVTE benchmark test and have been replaced by new market entrants. DERMALOG is one of the few biometric fingerprint identification companies with continuous market presence.

In a ten fingerprint search study conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) the DERMALOG AFIS showed the best performance in ten prints (TP) while it offers high usability, is easy to integrate and unique security.

In order to achieve reliable results, DERMALOG puts highest priority on the continuous improvement of its core product: the algorithm to identify fingerprints (duplicates) in a large-scale biometric database.

In 2012, NIST launched a new Fingerprint Vendor Technology Evaluation (FpVTE) with two main goals. The first goal was to assess the current capabilities of matching algorithms using operational datasets with several million subjects. The second goal was to evaluate different operational considerations that could impact matching accuracy. These considerations included number of fingers used, data types (live-scan, single-finger capture, slap capture requiring segmentation, and rolled), number of enrolled subjects, and matching speeds.

As a pioneer in the development of biometric products and solutions, DERMALOG has shaped the world of security for over 20 years. "We have been and keep on revolutionizing biometric security products for law enforcement, civil governmental agencies like national registration, voter and driver registrations, health agencies, security agencies and develop solutions for access and data security, authorization and authentication services as well as mobile security," says Gunther Mull, the CEO of DERMALOG. Governmental organizations as well as public and private businesses all over the world trust DERMALOG's expertise and state of the art biometric products.

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), a measurement standards laboratory, is a non-regulatory agency of the United States Department of Commerce.

DERMALOG Identification Systems, headquartered in Hamburg, Germany, is the largest German biometrics manufacturer and a world leader in biometric identification. A team of scientists and computer scientists works continually on new, innovative products. The company's product portfolio ranges from biometric border controls and biometric ID cards to new "FingerLogin", "FingerPayment" and "FingerBanking" solutions. As well as Germany and Europe, DERMALOG's main markets are Asia, Africa, Latin America and the Middle East.

In Germany, DERMALOG has supplied a total of over 20,000 fingerprint scanners for local registration offices and immigration authorities. These are being used to store fingerprints in new passports, ID cards and in residence permits. The company has now supplied a further 150,000 finger-scanners in more than 70 countries. Large AFIS installations (AFIS = Automatic Fingerprint Identification System) from DERMALOG are now in use at over 130 government clients worldwide. DERMALOG also provides systems for banks - like all major Nigerian banks - and ATM manufacturers, such as Wincor-Nixdorf, which has already equipped many ATMs with fingerprint technology from DERMALOG, allowing fingerprints to replace insecure PIN numbers.
