MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 11, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes M2SYS with the 2011 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation for its unique Hybrid Biometric Platform™, - the first scalable, multi-modal biometrics system that supports fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris recognition from a single server.

The biometric recognition domain lacks enterprise-ready, customizable, device-independent systems that allow organizations of any size to avoid being limited to one biometric modality or a single biometric device. M2SYS takes a giant leap with its innovative solution that works reliably and with a high success rate for all users.
"The ability to easily switch between four biometric engines from a single integration and software installation is the critical innovation of the M2SYS system," said Frost & Sullivan Senior Research Analyst Neelima Sagar. "The total cost of ownership (TCO) of this multi-modal biometrics system, which supports fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris recognition technology with near 100 percent read rates, is significantly lower when compared to other options available in the marketplace."
The challenges of developing biometric-matching software using a software development kit (SDK) that might be limited to a single modality or a particular biometric reader are countered by M2SYS's system, which enables software developers and end users to tailor solutions based on their unique needs. Hybrid Biometric Platform™ uses M2SYS's patent-pending Bio-Plugin™ middleware, allowing software developers to integrate the system quickly and deploy the form of biometric technology that best suits the needs of their end-users.
"A single integration into Hybrid Biometric Platform™ avoids having to work with four separate SDKs and ensures 100 percent read rates even under the influence of various factors that negatively impact some forms of biometrics," said Sagar. "This technology also helps users enjoy the flexibility of choosing from four different biometric modalities, or combining any of them, to customize their deployment model according to the unique needs of their end users."
The Webserver and Appserver versions of the system integrate into Web-based and Windows-based software, respectively. End Users also have the option of deploying Bio-Hyperpliance™, a sophisticated, server-based, accelerated biometric processing system that utilizes a hyper-threaded, parallel processing architecture. The ability to custom deploy models based on the needs of the users adds value to the system. Hybrid Biometric Platform™ supports the Microsoft operating system for Windows-based applications and many Web-based application environments for an efficient and seamless switch between biometric engines.
Leading the core biometrics industry by delivering long-lasting value to its customers, employees and partners, M2SYS has expanded the applicability of biometric technology in many different vertical markets through enterprise-ready biometrics solutions for network security, time and attendance, healthcare and point of sale. End-users, software integrators and resellers are able to accelerate their return on investment (ROI) and capitalize on the benefits of biometric recognition technology by working closely with the company.
M2SYS has a proven track record of large-scale implementation success, with thousands of end-user installations in more than 90 countries worldwide. Various organizations in industries ranging from healthcare to point-of-sale have benefited from the company's revolutionizing biometric solutions.
With the biometrics marketplace forecasted to more than quadruple by 2020, M2SYS is well placed to develop leading technology to meet the needs of its potential markets. In recognition of its achievements and potential, M2SYS is the recipient of the 2011 North American Frost & Sullivan Award for New Product Innovation in the biometrics market.
