DERMALOG - Cutting edge biometrics

Biometrics and Border Control Award

Frost & Sullivan consulting presented its Customer Value Enhancement Award to Germany's largest biometrics manufacturer, DERMALOG Identification Systems, for its exceptional biometric border control systems.

Hamburg, May 15, 2013 – DERMALOG has been honored by Frost & Sullivan with the Best Practices Award in the category Global Biometrics and Border Control Customer Value Enhancement Award  for its cutting edge Biometric Border Control System. One of the decisive factors in selecting DERMALOG for the award was the performance of its new biometric border control system. It is particularly fast and efficient thanks to its high-end components — but also focuses on fulfilling customer requirements. DERMALOG's speed and flexibility in deploying the system also played a major role. The award also recognizes the company's focus on enhancing the value of its products for customers by providing competitive pricing and excellent customer service.

"We are very pleased and proud that Frost & Sullivan has recognized the innovation and customer focus embodied by our biometric border control system," commented DERMALOG's managing director Günther Mull on winning the Frost & Sullivan Award. "All our products are based on a high quality standard and responding to individual customer requirements — that's our formula for success."

At the border, the pioneering biometric border control technology can scan and verify both biometric features and travel documents such as passports, visas, and other papers if desired. Biometric verification and identification can be completed in just one second thanks to DERMALOG's AFIS (Automated Fingerprint Identification System). The fingerprints are scanned by the DERMALOG Fingerprint Live Scanner LF10, which has been certified by both the United States FBI and Germany's BSI. Optional features make it possible to verify the authenticity of document and check the information contained in a traveler's documents with the border control system. DERMALOG is easily able carry out these verifications because the company also supplies forgery-proof high-security documents with integrated biometric data itself including electronic ID cards and e-passports. The AFIS, which is also supplied by DERMALOG, guarantees that these documents can only be issued once to each applicant, stopping identity theft in its tracks. The biometric Border Control System is already being used at all border crossings in Malaysia (air, land and sea crossings) as well as in neighboring Brunei and in Kuwait. DERMALOG fingerprint sensors are also in use on Germany’s borders and in several other European and Asian countries.

Thanks to DERMALOG's development of a continuous stream of innovative products, the company's biometric technologies are now being used at more than 80 large government installations in over 50 countries. That places the Hamburg manufacturer among the world's leading suppliers in the fields of fingerprint biometrics and AFIS. DERMALOG provides both the software and the world's most secure fingerprint scanners with state-of-the-art liveness detection for its systems, which have now made it the market leader in Europe and many other regions across the globe.

The wide range of products available combined with innovative technologies, high-end products and modular designs make DERMALOG systems easy to quickly adapt to the unique requirements of specific customers, ensuring fast and successful rollouts. DERMALOG is able to provide and integrate end-to-end solutions but also frequently works in cooperation with local system integrators.

The Biometric Middleware is an integral part of the system that enables quick and easy integration into existing software architectures for professional results. The are no limits on system scalability — depending on the country and population size, anything from large-scale deployments to small installations are possible.

In addition to national border control systems and biometric personal identification and passports, DERMALOG's technology is also being used for fingerprint payment (FingerPayment), as part of ATMs as well as inside banks at the counter, and also, of course, for biometric authentication to access computer systems. DERMALOG’s mission is to continue making its technology faster and easier to use while further enhancing security.
