Biometrics and payment

Zwipe’s technology addresses the data pitfalls inherent in traditional authentication methods by enabling a simple and cost-efficient integration of off the shelf fingerprint sensors into devices that are currently used to complete transactions. Zwipe’s proprietary mix of power harvesting and management systems, biometric algorithms, manufacturing methods and know-how work seamlessly to create a secure, fast and intuitive authentication experience for users of biometric payment cards or biometric enabled wearable payments devices.

Access Control

Zwipe has developed an innovative biometric identity and access control solution for public and commercial spaces that leverages existing infrastructure to eradicate security concerns over efficiency, identity and authenticity and overcome many previously insurmountable challenges. Biometric features are today the foundation of state-of-the-art access control and the checking of identities – Zwipe contactless biometric cards and the related enrollment solutions are designed to be meet individual requirements. To meet the increasing demands of safe and secure access control solutions, the process from enrolment, identification and verification must be seamless: Zwipe’s biometric access cards can completely enable this ambitious aim - from enrolment via document issuing through to access control.

Driven by user experience

At the heart of Zwipe’s value proposition is the idea that - through the intelligent application of biometrics - consumers will be able to utilize payment cards, wearable devices and a host of other products more frequently because they will be more secure. Our belief that superior user experience will push practical innovation.
