SRI’s Samsung License Agreement Scores ASIS Accolades

SRI Iris on the Move Products Win Acclaim at ASIS 2015Two products featuring SRI International’s Iris on the Move (IOM) technology have won prestigious awards at the ASIS 2015 conference. Both an enterprise operations terminal developed by SRI and a residential smart lock developed by KT&C (Korea Technology and Communications) are winners of the 2015 ASIS Accolades Competition: Security’s Best Award.

SRI’s enterprise operations terminal, which features embedded iris biometrics, offers workforce management features, access control, and customized applications. It is promoted by the company as a cost-effective security platform for the enterprise market and uses a specialized Samsung Galaxy Tab Pro for its user interface, which itself features SRI’s Iris on the Move iris scanning technology – the product of a deal between the two companies made earlier this year.

KT&C’s KEES door lock, meanwhile, uses IOM technology to authenticate users, replacing key- and PIN code-based door locks. It’s designed specifically for residential properties, a relatively untapped market in which biometric authentication has a lot of room to grow.

In a press release, SRI International VP Mark Clifton said his company “strives to deliver security products that combine ease of use and scalability for a broader range of market applications,” adding that it’s “rewarding to have our efforts recognized by ASIS International.”
