Princeton Identity (PI), provider of biometric security systems, has announced that energy company Consolidated Edison Inc (Con Edison) has deployed PI’s Iris-on-the-Move biometric identity solution in compliance with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission’s Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards.
PI says its solution is part of Con Edison’s multi-layered approach to control and manage physical access. The “touchless” nature of the technology was a critical factor in its selection; the company would not consider any biometric solution that requires physical contact between users and reader devices.
The company says the deployment at Con Edison facilities combines PI’s sleek, compact Access 200 readers with PI’s powerful IDS secure and scalable software platform. System management is simple and intuitive; user enrollment takes under a minute. ADT Commercial installed the PI solution, which integrates with the site’s access control system.
“The future of security is touchless. PI‘s Iris-on-the-Move is convenient for users, easy for busy people like me to manage and an excellent option for properties that must meet rigorous CIP standards for multi-factor authentication,” said Scott Gross, Facility Security Officer at Con Edison.
“The high-security requirements of the utility sector, as dictated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, make Iris-on-the-Move an ideal solution for identity verification and authentication. It combines unparalleled accuracy with a seamless, touchless user experience that satisfies the needs of all stakeholders,” said Bobby Varma, Princeton Identity CEO and Co-Founder.
