Barantec Inc. and Lenel Systems International Inc. combined to produce BIOGuard, a rugged biometric access control unit with three-factor authorization and a three-tier security line of defense. The new BIOGuard combines a keypad, proximity reader, and biometric unit and can be set up for one, two, or three factor authorization. The unit takes advantage of three-factor authentication and the biometric fingerprint sensor is protected until authorization from both the PIN and proximity reader. The common biometric reader is vulnerable to vandalism, which is why Lenel decided to hide the most expensive part of the reader so that only a valid user, who wouldn’t damage the sensor, could have access.
