Savannah, GA – November 11, 2015 – Digitus Biometrics, a global provider of data center access control solutions, announced today the release of db DualLock, the industry’s first access control swing-lock that enables dual-factor authentication at the cabinet door. The product combines the power of advanced fingerprint biometrics with the latest innovations in RFID smartcard technology.
“We’ve received a huge volume of requests from our customers and channel partners for this exact type of dual-factor authentication device, configured specifically for the server cabinet door. Until now, no such capability has existed in the global marketplace,” said Chris Marsden, CEO of Digitus. “We purpose-built db DualLock to meet this security demand while also addressing the complexities related to regulatory compliance, particularly in how private biometric data is used and secured. Additionally, we wanted to design a solution that works with existing infrastructure because many enterprises already have 3rd-party Access Control Management systems and extensive server cabinet equipment that they’ve heavily invested in. db DualLock works in any environment, is easy to install and is designed to help companies of all industries meet the most rigorous regulatory and compliance requirements.”
“Combining biometric authentication with smart cards has other benefits, as the comparison of the probe biometric sample with the biometric reference can be performed on board the card. Such “match on card” technology can address privacy as well as some scalability and integration challenges.” (Gartner Report: Good Authentication Choices: Evaluating Biometric Authentication Methods, May 2013, Gartner Foundational September 2014)
In addition to simplified integration with 3rd-party access control management (ACM) platforms, db DualLock can scale to accommodate an unlimited number of users. By storing up to three fingerprint templates on the RFID card, including the “duress” template option, the need to upload templates or Personally Identifiable Information directly to the device is eliminated. This unique security feature requires users to dual-authenticate with something they have (their card) as well as with something they are (their fingerprint), thereby verifying in real-time their fingerprint biology with their enrolled fingerprint template residing in the card.
db DualLock also features the latest generation of RFID smartcard technology, including the latest iClass card format that enables advanced anti-counterfeiting features and encryption capabilities. And of course, db DualLock handles elegantly integrate with existing Digitus technology, like db Bus and db Sentry systems, so existing customers now have more options when adding or retrofitting racks, or integrating into their ACM platform.
