Crossmatch Fingerprint Reader Provides Biometric Security for ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition

PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–lt;a href=”https://twitter.com/hashtag/crossmatch?src=hash” target=”_blank”gt;#crossmatchlt;/agt;–Crossmatch®, part of HID Global, today announced its
fingerprint reading technology is enabling secure identity management on
the newly revealed Lenovo
ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition
. Crossmatch’s fingerprint readers
protect patient information with FIPS-201 (Federal Information
Processing Standard) compliant Personal Identity Verification (PIV).
Secure and easy to use, Crossmatch’s fingerprint reader is a critical
component of the multi-factor authentication needed to keep patient
records safe and guard device access on the ThinkPad T490 HE.

Administrative and clinical staff in healthcare settings must ensure
that their data stays secure and access to their devices is controlled.
This becomes especially challenging with laptops that move around an
entire healthcare facility and are accessed by multiple users. Using
Crossmatch fingerprint reading technology, a layer of biometric identity
management is added that protects device access, data, and online
activity. As a leader in fingerprint image capture, Crossmatch is
well-positioned to design and deploy the fingerprint reading technology
for a laptop that caters to healthcare professionals.

“Hospitals and other healthcare settings are fast-paced environments,
harboring huge amounts of secure patient data,” says John Hinmon, Vice
President of Marketing, Crossmatch. “Integrating Crossmatch’s
fingerprint reading technology into Lenovo’s new ThinkPad lets
healthcare professionals keep their data secure and control who is
accessing it without slowing them down while providing care.”

Healthcare providers must now consider patient data confidentiality as
part of the patient experience. Crossmatch’s fingerprint reader gives
healthcare professionals using the ThinkPad T490 HE the biometric access
control needed to protect patient records with trust and confidence.

Crossmatch offers a complete range of commercial fingerprint readers and
modules—from small embeddable modules for mobile devices to large form
factor USB peripheral readers for desktop applications.

The silicon capacitive single fingerprint line is one of Crossmatch’s
most popular biometric sensors for embedded OEM applications. It offers
unparalleled accuracy, ease of use and PIV certification for high
quality print collection – making it the single finger sensor of choice
for PCs, mobile terminals and for a range of other assured identity
applications.
