LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Freevolt Technologies and ipas-systeme are pleased to announce the release of LogOnPlus v5.1 with biometric credentials, facilitated by S-Key biometric access cards. Users in the chemical and pharmaceutical industries who already use LogOnPlus will now be able to securely log into their systems using biometrics via S-Key.
Launched in 2014, LogOnPlus is already used by leading manufacturers in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries across Central Europe. Widely supported, including target applications from Emerson Process (DeltaV), General Electric (iFix), Siemens (Simatic Logon), Honeywell (Experion PKS), COPA-DATA (Zenon), and Körber (PAS-X), LogOnPlus is an off-the-shelf (COTS) software that controls and facilitates user logins for target applications in production environments. LogOnPlus dramatically reduces login times and enables additional features such as passwordless reconnects and remote login replication.
With the latest version, now supporting S-Key, LogOnPlus is able to go password-free entirely by using individuals’ biometric credentials to verify their identity and further its mission of reducing login times. LogOnPlus can distinguish biometrically unlocked S-Key cards from conventional RFID tags and thus enables hybrid scenarios where both types are in place. S-Key addresses GDPR biometrics concerns by securely storing users’ biometric data only on their own personal cards, never transmitting it or requiring central databases.
Using S-Key’s leading radio frequency (RF) energy harvesting technology, Freevolt, LogOnPlus customers can maintain their existing NFC reader and back-end systems for their target applications, simply by upgrading to LogOnPlus v5.1 and S-Key for immediate biometric control. access to their existing equipment.
Gonzalo de Gisbert, Product & Comics Manager, Freevolt Technologies, said:
“We are delighted to work with the team at LogOnPlus who are leaders in the pharmaceutical and chemical industries, enabling seamless and reduced connection times, thereby increasing efficiency. S-Key has already enabled many customers across Europe to upgrade their physical infrastructure to biometrics, but with today’s announcement we are demonstrating our move to logical access, enabling industries with strict security requirements to benefit from battery-free biometric technology in a simple, safe, and secure package, our S-Key card.”
Thomas Häuser, LogOnPlus product manager, said:
“We are more than happy to have found a reliable and innovative partner in the Freevolt S-Key team. S-Key allows us to provide completely passwordless logins without sacrificing security for convenience. One of the unmatched benefits of S-Key is that it requires no additional infrastructure or software for biometric identification: everything happens on the card and it stays on the card – forever. The standard form factor combined with common RFID technology allows our customers to easily transition to biometric identification from conventional RFIDs without incurring high costs for hardware or system changes. We see great potential in S-Key in conjunction with LogOnPlus and are therefore proud to offer the LogOnPlus S-Key Adapter (A200) with LogOnPlus 5.1 as the first biometric approach to passwordless logins.
