Nedap partners with Thales to offer facial biometric authentication for contact-free access control solutions
- Nedap, a leader in security management, strengthens its physical access management offer with Thales facial recognition expertise.
- The partnership aims to accelerate and simplify the deployment of secure physical access for businesses, government offices, hospitals, airports, industrial sites, public venues and more.
- Thales facial recognition for authentication is a mature and adapted use case well suited for ‘touchless’ experiences required in today’s society.
28 July, 2020, Thales the world leader in Digital Identity & Security, announces the integration of its Facial Recognition Platform (FRP) to Nedap physical access control platform (AEOS), facilitating the widespread uptake of biometric authentication. Through the use of an ‘out of the box’ solution Thales’ platform is the first of its kind to be fully approved and integrated with the Nedap physical access control platform.
In the current context there is an increased need for touch-free physical access control. Contactless and biometric technology, particularly facial authentication, represents the right balance of security and convenience. Thales Facial Recognition Platform (FRP) is the first biometric solution to be integrated with Nedap’s offer and simplifies its implementation in existing infrastructure.
Thales FRP interfaces with Nedap’s access control panel to provide face matching results upon each authentication request, as well as the back-end to synchronize the list of authorized people. Thales FRP solution works in a connected or disconnected mode to negate any connectivity issues.
