Zwipe embeds fingerprint tech into HID cards
Zwipe announced that HID Global’s iCLASS and 125kHz ProxCard users can now integrate the Zwipe Access biometric card, eliminating the need to add biometric readers to an existing HID Global iClass or Prox-based system.
By providing authorized users with Zwipe Access biometric cards that work with with existing iCLASS and 125 kHz ProxCard readers, these organizations can incorporating the card into their existing systems in the same way they already incorporate proximity or HID Global smart cards.
With Zwipe’s on-card authentication technology, only the authorized cardholder can activate card communication with the reader. This means no more lending or borrowing of ID badges for access.
Zwipe’s biometric authentication technology uses on-card fingerprint scanner with 3D capacitive technology that resides on the contactless smart card utilizing an embedded HID Global 13.56MHz iCLASS or 125kHz Proximity transponder. The Zwipe biometric card is also compatible with MIFARE Classic and DESFIRE EV1.
