EyeLock LLC has teamed up with a new software partner. It’s now part of security solutions provider AMAG Technology’s Symmetry Preferred Partner Program.
What that means more specifically is that EyeLock’s nano NXT iris scanner is now compatible with AMAG’s Symmetry Access Control platform, allowing for single or two-factor authentication via the EyeLock Identity Suite. As many as 20 individuals can be scanned by the nano NXT per minute, with AMAG’s Symmetry XML Open Integration system matching their iris biometrics to their employee profiles.
In a statement announcing the integration, AMAG VP Dave Ella said his staff “look forward to a long relationship where we can provide state-of-the-art iris-biometric technology to our customers demanding a more secure environment.”
Given the increasing popularity of biometric access control systems, coupled with the emergence of iris scanning as a mainstream consumer-facing technology through new smartphone integrations, the companies’ combined offering could see rising interest from organizations looking for a sophisticated and easy-to-use security solution.
