SecuGen, Realtime Integrate

SecuGen fingerprint readers now compatible with realtime's bioLock software for authentication of SAP applications, transactions, and data

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- SecuGen is pleased to announce that realtime has integrated SecuGen fingerprint readers with realtime’s bioLock Software to provide biometric authentication and fraud mitigation for SAP applications. To date, bioLock is the only certified technology available for ERP market leader, SAP, that offers biometric access and function control. With bioLock and SecuGen readers, a company can restrict logon to its SAP applications and transactions, as well as any field or info type of data, with the added security of fingerprint biometrics that require users to prove “who they are” rather than “what they know” such as less-secure passwords.

In addition, bioLock can uniquely identify the “actual user” of an SAP application or transaction and can log his or her activities into the standard log file providing proof of who did what and when within the system. The use of bioLock allows more accurate audits and can help with compliance and regulatory mandates such as HIPAA and Sarbanes-Oxley.

Thomas Neudenberger, COO of realtime North America said, “SecuGen’s hardened, high image quality fingerprint readers, such as the Hamster III and Hamster Plus, together with our bioLock software, provides the SAP user with a true ‘world class’ security solution and will be especially attractive for SAP’s government customers. SecuGen’s fingerprint technology has been designed for serious users that need to secure important information. We are very excited about this integration and our ability to deliver a complete, professional solution.”
