German Chancellor Visits DERMALOG

HANOVER, Germany, March 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

At this year's CeBIT Chancellor Dr. Angela Merkel visited the Hamburg-based biometrics manufacturer DERMALOG. The Chancellor came to the DERMALOG stand together with the Japanese Prime Minster Shinzo Abe. Japan is this year's CeBIT partner country. At the largest German biometrics company the two government leaders could see the three most important biometrics in use: fingerprint, face and iris recognition as well as DERMALOG´s multi-biometrics system.

Passwords and PIN-Numbers are already being replaced with biometrics - for example with fingerprints. Biometrics are easy to use and the user has no need to remember any annoying passwords anymore. DERMALOG´s founder and CEO Günther Mull presented the latest fingerprint scanners and "Liveness Detection" to the state guests. This technology helps to fight fraud and makes biometric identification even safer.

In addition, the visitors were able to see a new type of All-in-One-Scanner, which is able to capture fingerprints, passports, tickets and other documents using the same scanning surface. There is no longer a need for different devices, as the new VF1 is able to scan everything using the same surface. The new scanner is suitable for eGates and Kiosks, as well as for national registration offices and banks, and can even be used for access to events or arenas. As the next Olympics will take place in Tokyo, Japan, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe showed great interest in the new VF1 device and in new types of mobile biometrics units.

During her visit, the Chancellor had a close look at the DERMALOG ZF1 Finger Scanners, which are part of the equipment in the German national registration offices, as well as the LF10 Fingerprint Scanners which are used for refugee registration in Germany since the last year. Furthermore, she was shown the DERMALOG REAL TIME AFIS, by which every person can be found within three seconds even in extremely large-scale databases.

With a new type of biometric kiosk the two high-ranking visitors were shown how multi-biometrics works. This is a combination of different types of biometrics like face and fingerprint. Only if two or more biometrics are identical, access will be granted. Multi-biometrics are being used to further enhance security.

DERMALOG´s biometric systems are "Made in Germany" and are used in more than 220 large-scale government installation and by many banks in 83 countries, especially to prevent fraud and double payments. In the Philippines DERMALOG´s biometrics system prevents from duplicate voters. The company's systems are furthermore used for Border Control and to issue passports and ID Cards - whenever it comes to prevent from double or false identities.
