Security specialist, Data Pulse is presenting the latest in biometric technology at this week’s Gitex. The Kuwait-based company is showing its flagship security product, the Fingerscan V20 Universal Access (UA), which is a fingerprint-based identification system for controlling and auditing a user’s physical and access privileges. According to Bassam Alnouri, Data Pulse’s general manager, the V20 UA greatly reduces the fraud associated with card-based solutions as it provides a positive method of monitoring employee access and tracking people. The V20 UA is ideal for securing workstations and controlling how network resources are accessed and by whom. “The V20 UA eliminates fraud associated with badge renting, badge lending and buddy punching. It denies unauthorised access immediately,” says Alnouri. With the V20 UA, users can define security thresholds to allow for more flexible access policies. It provides a positive transaction log with the time and date of user access, which companies can use as reference in an event of a security breach or to verify an employee’s login time and attendance. Also at Data Pulse’s stand is A4Vision, a technology that enables the real-time capture of three-dimensional images of a subject’s face. The 3D image capturing solution extracts information about a person’s cranio-facial structure and stores it as a biometric template for automated human recognition, which can be used either in identification or in verification. The A4Vision technology is an ideal security solution for airline companies and airports, says Alnouri, as it provides accurate identification and controls access to secure areas in a more convenient and faster way. For instance, it can be used for traveller and loyalty programmes and securing boarding passes. “There are many secured areas to which airport personnel require access, such as baggage handling, runways, air traffic control centres and other secured areas. Physical access control is the most common application for biometrics at airports today. A4’s facial recognition solution works within an existing access infrastructure minimising costs associated with adding technology,” explains Alnouri.
