Xyntek has signed a partnership agreement with Nymi, expanding its turnkey biometrics authentication platform to include wearable technology, which is built around a high-availability centralized authentication service that transforms a user’s biometric identity into their enterprise account credentials in seconds.
Nymi Bands join an already impressive list of iris and fingerprint scanning technologies that Xyntek integrates to business-critical operations and processes. These solutions bring improvements and efficiencies to complex and GxP controlled laboratory, manufacturing, and healthcare processes that require user authentication and electronic signatures to review/approve completion of critical process steps.
Nymi’s unique wearable authentication solution, activated by a user’s biometrics, keeps workers continuously authenticated to facilitate rapid logins/e-signatures with just a tap of their wrist. Xyntek’s biometric platform supports all standard biometric devices including fingerprints and iris scanners, and this alliance will add wearable technology, Nymi Bands, to the platform.
“In the past a user’s identity was verified based on what we know, such as our username/passwords/PINs or what we have, such as ID & access cards. Biometric authentication enables user identification based on who we are, by using unique physical characteristics such as iris patterns and fingerprints to allow access to extremely sensitive systems, information and/or environments,” said Mac Hashemian, P.E., CEO of Xyntek. “With digital transformation and the push for mobility, we now have to factor in “what extends us” to this equation. The Nymi Biometric wearable technology provides an additional level of flexibility that provides operators with a more efficient way to achieve compliance and security without compromising productivity.”
“We are excited to be working closely with Xyntek and integrating the Nymi Bands into Xyntek’s portfolio of solutions and services. There are many use cases in the Life Sciences GxP environments that can benefit from wearable authentication devices,” said Nymi’s vice president, Andrew Foxcroft. “By combining our technology with Xyntek’s Biometric Authentication Platform, we can address a number of important use cases featuring enterprise authentication that delivers data integrity and security, allowing highly regulated industries to achieve compliance and productivity.”
