OSLO, NORWAY and ZURICH, SWITZERLAND –  14 April 2022 – Zwipe, a leading provider of on-card biometric solutions, has partnered with LEGIC Identsystems, one of the leading experts in end-to-end security for smartphone and smartcard-based access and mobility solutions. The partnership will provide end-to-end biometric access control solutions using LEGIC’s Security Platform.

On the backdrop of increasing requirements for security, data privacy and GDPR compliance, Zwipe and LEGIC Identsystems have successfully combined their respective high performance and innovative technologies for a next generation biometric system-on-card for access control. This solution provides highly secure multi-factor authentication integrated in an ID-Card form factor.

Speaking on the partnership, John Harvey, Head of BU Access Control at LEGIC said, “Zwipe’s embedded biometric verification in batteryless smartcards adds a revolutionary new layer of security to the huge installed base of LEGIC card-based access control systems worldwide. This innovation brings benefits that were formerly only available on smartphone solutions, while preserving existing infrastructure and drastically reducing time-to-market ”.

“We are very excited with our cooperation with LEGIC, one of the leading global providers of end-to-end security platforms for smartphone- and smartcard-based access, mobility, shared resource and industrial IoT applications. We are already working on several sharp customer cases based on LEGIC’s Security Platform. We are confident this is only the start of a long series of opportunities with LEGIC”, said André Løvestam, CEO of Zwipe.

Zwipe Access adds two-factor authentication to existing contactless card-based access control systems without the need to upgrade any of the existing infrastructures, meaning that no new readers, pin pads or cameras need be installed at the doors, gates, or turnstiles. The authorized user’s fingerprints data are captured, using the card’s integrated fingerprint sensor, encrypted, and then stored in the card's secure element.

The biometric data are not shared with anyone, and no database is needed which ensures privacy and simplifies the path towards GDPR’s compliance. The biometric verification on card ensures that only the legitimate cardholder is granted access.  Zwipe Access is contactless, batteryless and easy to use, with significantly shorter transaction time than conventional biometric access control systems.
