Integrated Biometrics System Extends Enterprise Access Control
Entertech Systems and Digitus Biometrics announced a new technology partnership between Entertech’s BioConnect identity management platform and the Digitus db Bus and db Cabinet Sentry for server cabinet access control. The result is a new, fully integrated solution called db BioConnect.
The new db BioConnect lets company data centers, co-location data centers and IT room customers simplify biometric implementation, enrollment and management for access control of perimeter doors, interior rooms, cages and now server racks, all integrated into one identity platform. This solution now extends enterprise access security platforms into the data center, making investments in access control management systems far more economical and effective.
“Digitus Biometrics is [a] leader in providing biometric access control to the critical infrastructure market,” said Rob Douglas, Entertech Systems’ CEO. “With Digitus technology integrated to BioConnect, all 15 of our certified access control partners will now be able to offer it to their customers. For the first time, end users will have access to an integrated biometric solution that secures access control from the data center entrance to the server cabinet instead of having to deal with stand-alone systems.”
David Orischak, Digitus Biometrics CEO, added, “Our biometric access control solutions are designed to meet the needs of a diverse range of clients. This technology integration to create db BioConnect will let us offer a single, centralized, highly advanced access control solution that’s easy to deploy and use. Our customers will be able to use one centralized system facility-wide to secure a company’s critical infrastructure and data.”
db Bus ServerRack Access Control is designed for data centers needing to secure large volumes of server cabinets with only one small component per cabinet. A single db Bus controller allows the user to secure up to 32 racks with a single 48V power supply and may be infinitely scaled. db Cabinet Sentry is designed for data centers with a structured cabling scheme. This extremely versatile unit can be deployed in networked or stand-alone environments, using PoE or an external power supply. db BioLock is a server cabinet lock that uses biometric identification with prints for up to 10 fingers per user. Through this new technology partnership, these db products will be integrated with BioConnect to create the new integrated db BioConnect solution.
“Digitus’ use of leading Suprema biometric technology in their server cabinet access control solutions is a natural fit for Entertech Systems as the operating partner for Suprema in the U.S., Canada, UK, Ireland and Puerto Rico,” added Douglas.
“The implications to the market are significant,” said Orischak. “The integrated db BioConnect solution can be used to manage any cabinet system where biometric access control is warranted — even SCIF’s and locked areas housing sensitive assets such as pharmaceuticals, hazardous materials, intelligence archives, customer and patient records, as well as critical IP.”
