What is the BioFortress?

BioFortress is an easy to use biometric access control system.  With an intuitive and user-friendly interface, it makes managing your physical security easy to do.

Why do I need it?

  • Collects on-line information about the presence of users, vendors and visitors in the office.Win 7
  • Supports easy schedule creation and physical access rules.
  • Generates various reports based on a variety of criteria.
  • Allows you discrete control of employee access to secured, highly restricted areas and checkpoints.
  • Create and manage areas, checkpoints, access schedules and rules enabling customization of authorized access for an individual employee, a department or for the entire company.
  • Makes it easy to keep track of all employee movements across all company offices from a central server.

How does it work?

Fingerpass EX
BioFortress is flexible and can be used for:
  • Access control of employees, using both standard means of identification (contactless card, passwords, PIN codes) and biometric ones (fingerprints) to sensitive areas.
  • Creation and management of access schedules and rules regulating employee access to restricted areas and checkpoints.
  • Generate reports based on verified check in and checkout events.
  • And much more….

Who uses it?

BioFortress is ideal for businesses of any size. Small and medium-sized businesses will benefit from the efficiency, ease of installation and operation. While large businesses and other enterprises can centrally manage attendance information from widely-dispersed offices and branches.

BioFortress, a part of the BioTime suite of applications, is a modular biometric solution that can be used for Access Control. It is an excellent solution for the small, medium, and large enterprises due to its modularity and scalability:

Multi Factor System

  • Biometric identifiers (What you are)
  • Proximity cards (What you have)
  • PIN code (What you know)

Multi Biometric system

  • Fingerprints
  • 3D face geometry
  • Vein identification

Scalable

  • One facility (LAN connection)
  •  Centralized database for Distributed organization (WAN connection, over the internet)

Multi functionality

  • Time & Attendance
  • Physical Access Control (FingerPass NEO)
  • Time & Attendance + physical access control

MAIN FUNCTIONS


BioTime is a biometric access control system allowing a reliable, secure and privacy-protected identification of company employees / users by their fingerprints, proximity cards and/or PIN codes and passwords. BioTime is a tool of choice for the following enterprise units: BioTime logo
  • Corporate security department
  • HR department
  • IT department
  •  Secretariat

Authentication Methods

  • The key identifier used in BioTime is the fingerprint, a human’s unique biometric feature. Biometrics employed for controlling access guarantees that the protected areas and facilities can only be accessed by the authorized personnel. Employees cannot lose, forget or share their biometric identifiers; fingerprints are unchanged and can be produced for identification an unlimited number of times.
  • The fingerprint Reader and controller are embedded into an Ethernet terminal equipped with a keypad and display. The display shows the basic information about the registered event (check-in/check-out), while the keypad is used to type a PIN code that can be either an alternative identifier or a parameter complementary to biometric identification to optimize the employee/user access time (If being used as part of a Time & Attenance system)
  • To target a wider audience, the terminal is compatible with contactless card readers. In this case BioTime allows comparing the produced fingerprint with its digital template stored on the proximity card, making it a “portable biometric database”.

Integration with physical access mechanismU-Match

BioTime is a hardware-and-software solution. Apart from the software packages providing convenient enrollment and administration capabilities, the system includes fingerprint scanners combined with controllers of the following mechanisms: electromechanical and electromagnetic door-locks, turnstiles, gateways, etc.

LAN / WAN configuration and fault-tolerance capability

All terminals can operate in local, network and combined modes thus providing a system fault-tolerance, which means that in the event of LAN failures and/or temporary unavailability of BioTime Server BioTime system continue functioning.

Different policies per user groups

  • BioTime allows the management of user rights to access the most sensitive areas, such as top management offices, server rooms, inventory stock, etc. For example, an ordinary employee can only be granted the right to go through the central entrance, while the system administrator, apart from the central entrance, will also be authorized to access the server room.
  • A higher protection level is achieved through building several security contours, meaning that a person who managed to get unauthorized access into one security contour will be denied access to another security contour. Access to protected areas and facilities is granted according to the time schedule defined by the enterprise security service.
