Paris, France (PRWEB) July 20, 2006
Secure printing market leader Jetmobile announced today the release of SecureJet Auth-Fingerprint, a biometrics user authentication system for HP LaserJet multifunction printers and digital senders. This product controls the usage of all the device functions by adding a professional fingerprint enrollment and recognition system, securing its access and saving money by stopping unauthorized usage and allowing the tracking per user.
MFPs and Digital senders are active parts of the IT infrastructure, being capable of sending emails, accessing network folders or even being the walkup node of sophisticated document workflow solutions. Ensuring outgoing emails sent from MFPs have genuine and accurate sender email address, or that only authorized users can use fax, color or black and white copiers, is part of current IT departments security and cost control concerns. Providing fast and reliable authentication for other functions such as secure printing, virtual private mailbox, fax or workflow also increase productivity and user satisfaction.
SecureJet Auth-Fingerprint is the latest of the SecureJet Authentication modules. It provides state of the art fingerprint recognition. It can be used to control access to all MFP functions such as color and monochrome copy, fax, hp Autostore, hp DSS Workflow, SecureJet Print-SMP secure printing, scan to folder or even email sending, in which case it injects the user email address in the FROM field for full security.
SecureJet Auth-Fingerprint uses the latest biometrics technology, developed by a leading European defense and security equipment manufacturer. Up to 500 users with 2 fingers per user, can be enrolled directly on the MFP or Digital Sender. Enrollment leverages from Kerberos or LDAP network authentication before reading the fingerprint, and the full process takes just a few seconds. Recognition speed and accuracy is the best of the industry, with less than 3 seconds to recognize one fingerprint across 1000 fingerprints. Integration is optimal as the tiny biometrics sensor is wired directly to printer electronic board. It needs no external power supply or interface, and is installable just a few minutes. One of its unique advantages is that it won't put extra burden on the IT department: it requires no PC, no software and is self-managed by smartly purging its users list.
SecureJet Auth-Fingerprint is compliant with laws protecting users biometrics information: the fingerprint picture is never stored, it cannot be rebuilt from the user database, it never goes out of the MFP, it is not even stored on the MFP hard drive or on any device or code reachable from the LAN or fax line. Furthermore the proprietary users biometrics database is fully protected, local to the device and write-only with only the sensor having read access.
SecureJet Auth-Fingerprint is available from July 20th 2006 from the Jetmobile worldwide reseller channel.
