Access unveils biometric keyboards to protect networks and apps

Antony Savvas

Access has introduced a range of biometric keyboards for added security to networks and apps.

The family of AKC programmable keyboards come with integral DigitalPersona "U.are.U" fingerprint readers.

Access says these readers recognise even the most difficult fingerprints accurately and rapidly, regardless of placement angle.

There are 84 standard keyboards in the product family, with between 42 and 127 keys. All except the 80-key version are available with optional magnetic stripe readers (MSRs), and touchpads are an option on many models.

Users place their finger on a red illuminated window to activate the fingerprint reader. On-board electronics encrypt the 512dpi resolution scanned image before sending it through the USB interface.

Built-in intelligence rejects ounterfeit and printed fingerprint images.
