FREMONT, Calif., September 14, 2017 — Identiv, Inc. (NASDAQ: INVE) today announced that the company has partnered with biometric technology company Zwipe for access control card formatting services. Identiv’s U.S.-based card service bureau is programming the radio frequency identification (RFID) chips in Zwipe’s biometric credential line, providing all physical access control system (PACS) formats from Identiv’s portfolio. Identiv will present samples of Zwipe’s biometric cards during ASIS International 63rd Annual Seminar and Exhibits (ASIS 2017) on September 26 – 28, 2017 in Dallas, Texas.
In order to encode its biometric cards in a wide variety of formats, Zwipe connected with Identiv. Identiv’s encoding solutions are fast, flexible, and far less expensive than competing providers. Through this collaboration, Zwipe customers can now order Zwipe access control products pre-formatted with the most popular 125 KHz and 13.56 MHz smart card formatting schemes, enabling seamless integration with end-customer systems without the need for additional card formatting services by the integrator.
“Identiv is seeing strong growth in the interest for biometric-enabled access control solutions,” said Stephane Ardiley, Identiv Director Product Management. “Zwipe’s credential products are very user friendly and offer a fast, efficient way for customers to upgrade to a biometric security level in their access control installations without the need to change their readers and back-end system. We see a good opportunity for Identiv by supplying formatting services for Zwipe cards, which we believe meets a strong, growing need in the marketplace.”
Zwipe’s biometric credentials are delivered as credit card-sized cards with powerful, embedded biometric sensors for user enrollment and identity verification. After successful authentication via fingerprint, the RFID interface of the card is enabled, allowing the card to behave like a typical access control credential.
“We are very excited to work with Identiv, as it allows us to address a large segment of customers for the first time — not just in the U.S. but across the world — thanks to the company’s expansive customer network,” said Einar Boije, Zwipe SVP of Access Control. “With Identiv’s capacity, we can now provide formatting services alongside our access control product lines, making it that much easier to integrate and deploy the world’s smallest biometric reader.”
