Best-in-class fingerprint authentication hardware manufacturer and network security solution provider Zvetco Biometrics today announced that its Verifi™ line of fingerprint biometric readers are now compatible with Sun Microsystems' Identity Management Suite via the integration of BiObex™ , a leading biometric middleware from Advanced Biometric Controls.
Orlando, FL (PRWEB) June 24, 2009 -- This integration enables biometric security to be applied through the web based identity management capabilities available on Sun's Identity Management Suite to provide strong authentication solutions for government and commercial applications. Whether protecting sensitive enterprise applications, meeting the demands of regulatory compliance, or complying with federal mandates, the Zvetco Verifi™ and BiObex™ solution delivers a cohesive system of protection.
"With the simple addition of Zvetco's Verifi fingerprint readers and BiObex middleware to existing users, government and enterprise can realize significantly increased security by verifying the identity of those individuals wishing to access their systems and networks. This first step of applying Zvetco Biometrics readers' to Sun Identity Management Suite will lead the way for integration with Solaris 10, Solaris 10 Trusted Extensions and Sun Ray ultra thin client. Sun Microsystems customers will soon be able to deploy biometric authentication on Sun Rays, take advantage of its "hot-desking" capabilities and use biometrics-based Web Single Sign-on authentication with Sun OpenSSO Enterprise," said Zavi Cohen, CEO, Zvetco Biometrics.
"Advanced Biometric Controls is pleased that Zvetco has selected BiObex for their Verifi suite of fingerprint readers," said Chris Sands, CEO of Advanced Biometric Controls. BiObex software enables organizations to enroll, manage, and apply biometric authentication to security and identification needs. Its core functionality allows an enterprise to define policy-based methods for implementing various types of biometric access control systems, using a consistent application for management, authentication, enrollment, administration, auditing, event logging, and reporting. While interoperability, ease-of-use, and multi-platform versatility are clear advantages of BiObex, the essential customer value is increased security."
The Verifi line of readers, including the P4000 and P5000 family of products are enterprise ready fingerprint readers with all metal housings, optional waterproof capability and extremely high reliability make for the perfect candidates for large-scale enterprise deployments. Additionally, the waterproof capabilities are ideal for healthcare environments where they can be sprayed regularly with disinfectant without worry, while meeting the revised stringent security requirements of HIPAA and other healthcare related government security mandates. In particular, the recently announced transition to an electronic patient record from paper records necessitates a higher level of protection that only biometric security can provide.
This addition also complements the recently announced Verifi P6000, which is intended toward government deployments. This unit is a certified single fingerprint reader that meets the FIPS 201/PIV requirements of Homeland Security Presidential Directive 12 (HSPD 12). As such, the Verifi P6000 is a great match for protecting government desktops and networks everywhere. The Verifi P6000 is designed to facilitate government and enterprise logical access -- the protection of personal computers and electronic data to help prevent the inside threat. Further, with its state of the art capacitive sensor technology it is able to capture high quality fingerprints from a wide spectrum of traditionally difficult fingers such as those with dry, moist, scarred and aged skin.
