G&D and Precise agree partnership

04/10/11

 

Giesecke & Devrient (G&D) and Precise Biometrics have entered into a partnership agreement which enables G&D to use Precise Match-on-Card technology on its smart cards.
According to Precise Biometrics, the card’s chip contains the cardholder’s fingerprints, enabling them to be securely identified so their information cannot be stolen or used by other individuals. Precise Match-on-Card enables the fingerprint to be stored on the card and securely matches the fingerprint directly on the card itself.
Precise Biometrics says its solution has been implemented in six national ID projects including Nigeria, Portugal, Qatar, Bahrain, Thailand, and Venezuela. It is also used on physical access control credentials and employee ID cards in both the private and public sectors.
“Our partnership with G&D will enable both companies to respond quickly to customer needs, while at the same time offering those looking for on-card comparison an industry-leading choice,” says Thomas Marschall, CEO, Precise Biometrics. “We are confident that together with G&D we will win more projects around the world where Match-on-Card has been specified as a project requirement.”
