Digital Defense Group has began production of the Factor4 on-card self-enrolling biocard earlier this month to meet demand in Aruba, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Russia and the United States.
The company is a subisdiary fo Gabriel Technologies Corp., a US homeland security company.
Factor4 and IronGate biocards enable secure identity management and protect privacy. The biocards perform a one to one on-card authentication and wirelessly transmits an encrypted authentication certificate 10 centimeters and 10 meters respectively. Both Factor4 and IronGate biocards feature an on- card self-enrollment process, enabling the user's unique biometric signature to be stored directly on the secured biocard itself and eliminating the need for a centralized database or extra external hardware or software during enrollment and authentication.
Digital Defense Group, a developer and supplier of biometric-enabled identity management products, said production is ramping up to 10,000 units per month as the company's integration partners place orders for Factor4 biocards to enable physical and logical access, and time and attendance tracking.
Factor4 and IronGate biocards can hold numerous digital certificates of authentication for access and financial transaction requirements, as well as secure documents and digital images. Both biocards are compatible with both 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz readers.
