BIO-key International, Inc., an innovative provider of strong interoperable biometric authentication solutions, announced that the company has combined IDEX’s advanced off-chip sensor technology with BIO-key’s NIST-tested universal Windows Biometric Framework (WBF) fingerprint engine, to introduce a USB fingerprint reader that operates on both Windows and Android platforms. SideTouch was developed to address the growing market of enterprise and consumer users wanting to replace passwords with biometric authentication solutions such as Windows Hello, on existing devices. The initial product launch of SideTouch is scheduled for the Mobile World Congress, Barcelona, Spain, February 22nd 25th.

“Our Eagle off-chip fingerprint sensor solution offers a high performing touch sensor at a very compelling price point and is ideal for integration into the SideTouch ™ USB Reader,” said Dr. Hemant Mardia, CEO of IDEX. “We are very pleased to be part of this authentication solution which will drive user friendly security across multiple platforms.”

Thanks to the success of Apple’s Touch ID and Microsoft’s extensive advertising of their new biometric authentication platform Hello, there is a fast-growing market comprised of Windows and Android customers who understand and want the benefits of secure and convenient biometric logon, but who have laptops and tablets that lack an integrated fingerprint touch device. With the introduction of SideTouch, millions of mobile device owners now have a biometric logon option that is affordable (MSRP $39.99), easy-to-install and easy to use. Additionally, enterprise customers can use BIO-key’s ID Director for Active Directory and WEB-key Biometric Asset Management software along with SideTouch to biometrically secure their Active Directory authentication workflows for protected company files and applications. Better still, enterprises can mix and match SideTouch with any other of over 40 BIO-key-supported fingerprint scanners across their enterprise. BIO-key’s unique scanner-interoperable capabilities make this possible.

After taking just a few moments to enroll, customers can use SideTouch to identify on any Windows or supported Android device with an OTG USB port.

“There is a growing demand for cost-effective biometric technology, driven by customers that want greater security, but want to improve the user experience and convenience,” stated Mike DePasquale, BIO-key Chairman & CEO. “Thanks to the overwhelming success of Apple’s Touch ID on the iPhone, and the inclusion of finger scanners in a variety of smartphones and tablets from various manufacturers, fingerprint is unquestionably the dominant method of biometric authentication. Numerous media articles have pointed out that most users won’t be able to use Windows Hello, because they lack the scanners to do so. BIO-key is meeting this market need with another great, affordable device incorporating new and innovative technology from IDEX,” DePasquale added.
