TORONTO–Designed for organizations with complex digital infrastructures, multiple office locations and diverse employee and visitor populations, BioConnect’s 5.0 platform helps enterprises implement, maintain and scale higher levels of physical security at the lowest cost of ownership available in the industry.

BioConnect Enterprise 5.0 brings unity across physical and digital authentication as never previously done using BioConnect Link (Winner of Security Industry Association’s Best Emerging Technology award for 2020). Solution integrators will also appreciate the updates to make implementation seamless with a standardized approach including global biometric template distribution and management for simple onboarding, enrollment, and management of users at locations worldwide, and a fast and easy authentication experience. End Users will benefit from the choice of authentication methods and privacy options, the platform includes support for touchless access through facial recognition devices or mobile applications, which includes IT trusted mobile authenticators such as Cisco’s Duo App, Okta and PingID; along with BioConnect Mobile.

Courtney Gibson, BioConnect’s CTO and CISO commented, “For companies with a global footprint, managing multiple geographic locations and diverse user communities can be a challenge. We designed BioConnect’s 5.0 platform to deliver the highest level of security and scalability to protect organizations from physical data breaches that can result in regulatory fines and a negative impact on business continuity while still maintaining the highest levels of privacy for users authenticating with our solutions.“

To help with managing access in the new normal, BioConnect 5.0 includes support for the new BioConnect LR1 as the ‘swiss army knife’ of door readers offering FIVE authentication modes. Uncertain times require flexible authentication. The LR1 provides multi card access, fingerprint biometrics, card + mobile face biometrics, card + Digital MFA (DUO, Okta, PingID), and card + compliance (Wellness Declaration) authentication. The LR1 is the most flexible security door reader available on the market. Additionally, BioConnect 5.0 also adds the new outdoor rated touchless face, mask detection and optional thermal monitor inside Suprema’s new F2 reader into the platform.

New features in the platform include updated data analytics and reporting tools with an Admin Console​ with a modern UX which includes full biometric lifecycle management for the full range of BioConnect’s solutions and certifications for over six facial recognition and fingerprint devices. The 5.0 platform integrates with over 80% of the top access control systems including AMAG, Brivo, Genetec, Lenel, Open Options, RS2, and Software House which allows for simple synchronization of data.
