KSI (Key Source International) today announced that it has integrated
the Lumidigm Mariner™ fingerprint reader into the KSI-1700 professional
series keyboard system, the most advanced integrated keyboard system
available today. Offering integrated security and auto ID in an elegant,
HIPAA-compliant desktop solution, the KSI-1700 keyboard system with the
Lumidigm reader will be introduced this week at HIMSS in Las Vegas.
"In my 20 plus years in the security input device business I have never
seen biometric performance taken to such a level. It is simply amazing,
the reliability the Lumidigm Mariner unit delivers, it surpasses
anything I have witnessed to date," says Phil Bruno, KSI vice president
of sales & marketing.
Lumidigm is renowned for its fingerprint readers which incorporate
multispectral imaging, a sophisticated technology that was designed to
overcome the fingerprint capture problems that conventional imaging
systems face in less-than-ideal conditions, such as those found in
hospitals. Capable of viewing both the external and internal fingerprint
below the skin's surface, the Lumidigm Mariner does not require clean
and perfect contact between the finger and the sensor to quickly and
reliably authenticate users.
"Users in mission-critical hospital environments requiring strong
authentication no longer need to compromise biometrics performance,
durability, reliability or convenience with the KSI-1700 keyboards,"
emphasizes Phil Scarfo, Lumidigm senior vice president of worldwide
sales and marketing. "With Mariner, KSI's offering provides
exceptionally fast and highly dependable user authentication in an
elegant, simple to use, easy to deploy package."
KSI brings the Lumidigm Advantage™ to a wide range of business
opportunities such as secure data access to multi-user workstations,
electronic medical records, enterprise single sign-on, point-of-sale
applications, time and attendance data collection, quality control and
standards compliance, laboratory equipment sign-on, data network access
and other Windows®-based applications in which organizations need to get
a fast fingerprint read on the first try.
"KSI and Lumidigm share a commitment to offering fully-integrated,
best-in-class products and solutions that will greatly enhance the
utility, security and convenience of user access to medical records,"
said Scarfo. "Easy to integrate, easy to use — the KSI-1700 with
Lumidigm Mariner will meet the demands of any secure single sign-on
