The adoption of biometrics is growing rapidly in the emerging countries of the world. Growth, prosperity and political stability in these countries depend on providing burgeoning populations access to basic services such as pensions, entitlements, education, banking and secure voting systems. However, effective delivery of these services requires a reliable and cost-effective means of identification at point-of-service access. Without such identification, fraud can run rampant and divert precious resources from their intended recipients. In addition to preventing fraud, biometrics is seen as a means of providing citizens with portable, easy-to-manage IDs in countries with no other reliable identity infrastructure.

DigitalPersona fingerprint biometrics are used worldwide to support electronic voting, voter registration, mobile micro-finance, entitlement and other Civil ID programs.  Over the past 15 years, DigitalPersona has supplied authentication products to governments, multi-national banks and leading technology companies such as IBM, NCR and Microsoft®. DigitalPersona stands apart in the Civil ID industry for the company's unmatched combination of manufacturing, biometric technology expertise and product breadth.  DigitalPersona provides strategic partners with:

  • Fast-ramp, high-volume manufacturing – DigitalPersona has delivered hundreds of thousands of fingerprint readers to customers and partners over timeframes as short as two months.
  • Deep Expertise in Biometrics Hardware and Software – DigitalPersona assists partners in responding to bids, providing insight into various issues such as fingerprint sensor integration, nuances of template formats and accuracy, and on-the-fly changes to evolving requirements and technical issues.
  • Industry-Leading Technology – Quick integration of U.are.U® Fingerprint Readers is facilitated by high-quality 500 dpi images, support for international standard images formats and compact size. In addition, the fingerprint reader's ergonomic "cool blue" illumination can enhance the appearance of any Civil ID system.
  • Flexibility and Responsiveness – DigitalPersona provides rapid-response technical support that helps partners get from the design of the biometrics component to high-volume manufacturing in a matter of weeks.

"DigitalPersona has market-leading, high-volume, low-cost manufacturing capabilities which enabled us to deliver more than 300,000 fingerprint readers to several of the largest voting system opportunities over the past year and a half," said Jim Fulton, vice president of marketing at DigitalPersona. "We are expanding our product families to address the need for standards support on a global scale as well as the need for mobile identification.  We will demonstrate the evolution of our Civil ID portfolio at this year's show."
