M2SYS Technology announced a new partnership designed to help customers using SecuGen fingerprint readers to accelerate their projects with the adoption of CloudABIS – a suite of cloud-based biometric identification management software tools. Longstanding pioneers of easing the burdens in the adoption of biometric technology, M2SYS created its next-generation CloudABIS suite to simplify the complexities and lower the costs of adoption for authentication projects around the globe. The partnership will help to speed deployment and facilitate the software development process for SecuGen’s broad network of partners.

With a proven history and strong track record of designing and developing innovative identity management solutions that change the landscape of the industry, CloudABIS allows anyone around the world embarking on a biometric identity project to rapidly bring to market a highly scalable solution, avoiding the cost and burden of significant development and maintenance. Components of the CloudABIS suite include:

• CloudApper immediately provides a cloud-based, configurable identity management software platform that can be used for anything from data management, to rapid prototyping, to a full-scale solution. This rapid cloud application framework can be used to build identity management systems for use cases such as national ID, border control/immigration, voter registration, membership management, time and attendance, and more.

• CloudABIS is a scalable, cloud-based biometric matching system for fingerprint, iris, finger vein, and facial recognition. Developers looking to add biometrics for identification can easily integrate into CloudABIS under a flexible and affordable SaaS model. Customers can use our public cloud or deploy CloudABIS in their own private cloud environment.

• CloudScnr is a biometric scanner integration service based on a service-oriented architecture. This product eliminates the headache associated with integrating biometric hardware into windows applications and various web browsers. With the advent of this product, developers do not have to worry about ActiveX, native code integration and browser plug-ins.

“As pioneers in developing technology for the rapid adoption of biometrics around the world, we are excited to continue that tradition with the release of CloudABIS,” commented Mizan Rahman, Founder of M2SYS Technology. “Unfortunately, implementation of biometric identity management projects often poses a host of challenges such as integration, development obstacles, licensing issues, and on-going maintenance which cost precious time, resources, and money. CloudABIS removes the friction and risk from the process while lowering the total cost of ownership.”

“We are optimistic that this partnership to empower our customers with CloudABIS will increase the adoption of our fingerprint hardware around the world,” said Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen. “As the world’s leading provider of fingerprint technology, we listen closely to our customers’ needs, and we understand the desire to simplify the complexities and impediments to deploying a scalable biometric solution. CloudABIS is an innovative answer to help advance this powerful identification technology around the world.”
