“…the StoneLock GO is being billed as a “faceless” recognition technology thanks to its reliance on mathematical representations of enrolled users, as opposed to photographs.”
Biometric security specialist StoneLock has announced a new edge reader for enterprises in need of a safe and convenient access control solution optimized for today’s heightened hygiene and privacy demands: the StoneLock GO.
“The StoneLock GO is a revolutionary biometric edge reader designed to address our customers needs for a secure, easy to use and utterly private access control solution,” said, Colleen Dunlap, CEO and Co-founder of StoneLock. “Rounding out our complete biometric-centric access control solution when coupled with the StoneLock Gateway, the StoneLock GO takes a significant leap forward by delivering exactly what enterprises need to secure their buildings, protect user privacy and deliver a completely contactless and simplified experience.”
Utilizing near-infrared technology to authenticate users via their face biometrics, the StoneLock GO is being billed as a “faceless” recognition technology thanks to its reliance on mathematical representations of enrolled users, as opposed to photographs. Boasting a simplified, touchless enrollment process and versatile, easy deployment options, the GO is optimized for today’s privacy and hygiene conscious enterprises.
“We are proud to now have it in the hands of our customers at a time when protecting user privacy and utilizing contactless technology is of paramount importance,” said Dunlap.

The launch of StoneLock GO arrives as businesses face the dual conundrum of protecting users’ health and privacy in a time when legacy security solutions like fobs, key cards, and passcodes have long since been proven to be liabilities. The edge reader’s contactless nature ensures physical distancing and shared-surface provisions can be observed, even during enrollment. And the privacy-by-design “faceless” approach ensures compliance with new and emerging data privacy regulations.
As it stands, StoneLock’s latest product is an example of face biometrics used to make life safer and easier for users and businesses. The company is offering product demos now through its newly launched website.
