Lumidigm Continues Market Leadership in Biometric ATM Deployments in Brazil

Attendees at FELABAN CLAB can preview advanced authentication solutions that enhance security and convenience in banking

ALBUQUERQUE, NM – Lumidigm will be demonstrating its convenient, secure, and reliable fingerprint authentication technology in booth #404 at FELABAN CLAB 2013, the Latin American conference on technological solutions for financial institutions, September 11-13 at the InterContinental Hotel in Miami, Florida. As the leading supplier of biometrics technology to banks in Latin America, Lumidigm fingerprint technology provides financial services providers a way to give their customers an easy and secure way to access their accounts and execute financial transactions.

Today, several of the largest private and public sector banks and many of the leading ATM manufacturers in Brazil have selected Lumidigm as their biometric business partner. With more than 50,000 units deployed in Brazil, Lumidigm is now the market leader in the region. Lumidigm's ability to provide best-in-class biometrics performance, upgradable spoof detection and FIPS 140-2 level 3 encryption has made Lumidigm the preferred choice in this important banking sector.

"Banking applications require superior biometrics performance and advanced spoof protection for unattended operations like those required at ATM terminals," explains Juan Carlos Tejedor, Lumidigm director of Latin America sales. "Our business partners are also looking for a technology that can perform reliably under a wide variety of environmental conditions and duty cycles and Lumidigm's technology was designed specifically for excellent performance in all situations."

Lumidigm's unique ability to react and respond to new threats helps to preserve the technology investment made by financial institutions. Lumidigm has the only sensor in the market today that can be upgraded to deal with new vulnerabilities as they become known.

Lumidigm fingerprint sensors employ multispectral imaging technology which reads fingerprints both on and below the skin. This technology leverages a richer biometric data set for higher performance and passes the benefits on to bank members, who gain convenient and intuitive access to the system, and to banks, which are ensured a secure operation.

Latin America is rapidly embracing fingerprint technology as the preferred mode of providing secure and convenient access to financial resources via ATMs. Lumidigm fingerprint sensors can also be found in banking projects in Asia and Africa.

FELABAN CLAB 2013 is organized by the Latin America Banking Federation (FELABAN) and the Florida International Bankers Association (FIBA). The conference will be conducted in both Spanish and English.
