RISHON LEZION, Israel, March 8, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --
FST Biometrics, the leading biometric identification solutions provider, and Genetec Inc. "Genetec", a leading manufacturer of open-platform, unified IP security software and solutions, today announced a new collaborative relationship. The two companies will work together to integrate the FST biometric fusion of identification technology, which combine face recognition and body behavior analytics, with the Genetec™ Synergis access control system in Security Center.
FST's cutting-edge In Motion Identification (IMID) technology will be deployed as a part of Genetec™ Security Center, a unified IP security platform, and will manage physical secure access to facilities through a simple and easy integration that allows Security Center customers to maintain their existing security setup. Security Center users will now have the option to implement an identity management component that will admit users based on their biometric profile as they approach access points. IMID can also be combined with RFID cards for organizations that require multi-factor identification.
"FST Biometrics is excited to be working with one of the market leaders in facility security to not only improve the quality and accuracy of identity and access management, but also to make the user experience smoother," said Arie Melamed, CMO of FST Biometrics. "The integration of IMID into the Security Center ecosystem means that users will be identified by who they are, not what they carry - all without breaking their stride or slowing down."
With this integration, Security Center users will be able to receive real-time alerts from IMID such as when unauthorized or blacklisted visitors attempt to enter the facility. In addition to advancing the access control capabilities of the system, IMID's database is easily and fully synchronized with the existing Security Center database, eliminating the need to re-enter authorized users' information.
"Genetec is pleased to collaborate with FST Biometrics to offer our end-users an expanded choice of secure access management options to incorporate facial recognition and body behavior analytics" said Derek Arcuri, Product Marketing Manager, Genetec Inc. "Adding the capability of In Motion Identification to the Synergis access control solution in Security Center, credential holders will be able to access restricted areas more conveniently," added Arcuri.
