M2SYS Technology Partners With Hitachi To Offer Innovative Biometric Finger Vein Scanner To US Market

LONDON, April 12, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

- - Finger Vein Identity Management Solution a Perfect Fit for the M2SYS Biometrics Product Portfolio - -

Hitachi Europe Ltd. and M2SYS Technology today announced that they have entered into a strategic partnership making M2SYS Hitachi's primary Value Added Reseller in North America for the H1 Biometric Finger Vein scanner.

Biometric Finger Vein identity management scanning technology was developed by Hitachi to provide safer and more secure authentication for access control and other identification purposes. Using near infrared light to detect and capture the vein pattern inside a finger, the H1 Finger Vein scanner is a unique solution for cost-effective identity management. Finger Vein biometric identity management technology is safe because vein patterns are internal to the body so forge them is virtually impossible, effectually making counterfeiting improbable and providing a high level of security.

Michael Trader, president of M2SYS said: "M2SYS has made a name by providing specialty enterprise-ready biometric software and hardware solutions and Hitachi's H1 Finger Vein scanners are a perfect fit for us. By adding this to our portfolio of biometric solutions, we will be able to better customize our offerings to the specific needs of our customers across the globe."

Their range of specialized products in the biometrics area is a perfect fit. This strategic partnership provides a key benefit to M2SYS's customers by giving them access to proven, easy-to-use identity management technology."
