Lumidigm announces partnership with Verimetrics

Lumidigm, a provider of multispectral imaging biometrics, announced Tuesday that it is partnering with identity and access management solutions manufacturer Verimetrics.

According to a statement, Lumidigm’s Mercury and Venus fingerprint readers will be used in conjunction with Verimetrics' SmartProfile biometric single sign-on (SSO) solution in deployments across a wide range of applications including hospitals, emergency response vehicles and retail stores.

"Our SmartProfile solution provides enterprise SSO capabilities that require strong authentication technologies such as Lumidigm fingerprint sensors, our preferred biometric component," said Guillaume Turbide, vice president of business development and marketing at Verimetrics. "Lumidigm’s multispectral imaging technology allows Verimetrics to recommend our SmartProfile solution with utmost confidence to those customers who have applications in a wide range of environmental and usage conditions. Users will get a good read the moment they lay their finger on the Lumidigm sensor."

Lumidigm fingerprint sensors capture fingerprint data beneath the surface of the skin so that factors such as dryness or damaged or worn fingers don’t present a problem.

"Gone are the days when end users must present their fingerprint over and over again to authenticate, if authentication was even possible," said Dave Cullen of Lumidigm Healthcare Solutions. "Lumidigm fingerprint sensors eliminate these problems, enhancing the user’s experience while improving productivity."
