Most systems use conventional passwords or PINs (data known), or access cards (tokens presented), but they become vulnerable to breach if these tokens are shared, lost, or stolen. Fingerprint biometrics, however, use physical characteristics to validate each person’s unique identity. When used for identification, or combined with other authentication methods, the MorphoAccess intensifies security by allowing additional layers of identity verification (data known plus a token presented plus physical characteristics) to meet a broad range of security requirements. Matching accuracy is achieved through a precision optical scanner and SAGEM’s leading fingerprint algorithms.

For high-security installations, the MorphoAccess MA220 also offers Fake Finger Detection (FFD) to prevent unauthorised access by counterfeit fingerprints. Fingerprint processing is remarkably quick for both 1:1 authentication against a contactless smart card or 1:many identification against large databases. The MorphoAccess MA220 is well suited for a variety of physical access applications due to its expandable database capacity, customisable operating parameters, easy interface with legacy, existing, or commercially available access control systems, and industry standard 10BaseT Ethernet, RS-422, and Wiegand communications.

MorphoAccess MA220 is the ideal solution to increase identification, protect valuable property, and enhance security in physical access control systems.
