Morpho Launches Secure, Multifunction Biometric Tablet
Barcelona, February 25, 2014
Morpho (Safran), the world leader in biometric recognition technologies, announced today the introduction of MorphoTablet™, a compact touchscreen device that guarantees secure mobile data operations using biometrics (fingerprint and facial recognition) and cryptographic functions. MorphoTablet™ combines mobility, versatility and security in a single platform, for trusted services in any sector, anywhere and at any time.
Integrating Morpho's world leading biometric technology, the innovative MorphoTablet™ comprises a fingerprint reader[[FBI-certified, this sensor complies with the PIV IQS (Personal Identity Verification-Image Quality Specifications) standard.]] and a high-resolution camera to capture and check biometric data. Its tamper-proof hardware and integrated encryption functions provide enhanced security to protect sensitive data and associated transactions.
MorphoTablet™ is a high-quality data acquisition terminal with a 7-inch touch screen. Light and compact, it is perfectly suited to all types of operations in the field.
Using its advanced biometric functions, coupled with integrated card readers (contact and contactless, including NFC), MorphoTablet™ can easily verify people's identities in a wide variety of situations and environments: on-the-spot ID checks, elections, benefit payments, school tests, medical exams, access to secure areas, etc.
Users of this innovative Android-based terminal can stay connected anywhere since the tablet supports WiFi, Bluetooth and cellular networks.
Police forces could also save considerable time by using MorphoTablet™ to instantaneously collect and transmit, in total security, information gathered during their investigations.
With MorphoTablet™, banks, insurance companies and other service providers can acquire the data needed to open an account (personal information, fingerprints, photos, signatures, administrative documents, etc.), not only in their offices or branches, but also at customers' doorsteps. The tablet also comes with a software development kit, allowing companies to create tailored applications for their customers.
MorphoTablet™ is now being introduced to the public at the Mobile World Congress, the largest trade show in the mobile phone industry. "With MorphoTablet™, mobile network operators have a powerful device for the swift and secure registration of customer data in the field," explains Yves Portalier, Vice President, Programs & Marketing at Morpho's Telecom Business Unit. "MorphoTablet™ ensures that operators can meet evolving data registration regulations, while also offering customers an open-ended range of innovative services, thanks to our software development kit."
