Biometric Identification System from SRI International Secures Access to E-Commerce Park Data Center in Curaçao

e-commerce-park-1MENLO PARK - SRI International Sarnoff's Iris on the Move® (IOM) N-Glance™ biometric system is now protecting access to E-Commerce Park Curaçao, the first data center of its kind built in the Pan Caribbean area. E-Commerce Park provides clients with redundant continuity and disaster recovery solutions, including colocation, data storage and private cloud services. IOM N-Glance systems secure access to the colocated servers and data housed at E-Commerce Park Data Center by confirming the identity of authorized employees as they enter the facility as well as the colocation areas.

"A high level of security is critical to our business, where we manage network operations, client support, and redundant Internet access day and night," said Rob Vermeulen, CEO of E-Commerce Park. "Our clients entrust us with business-critical data, and the N-Glance iris recognition system ensures the most accurate method of identity verification of people entering our sensitive facilities."

SRI's IOM N-Glance system is easy to use and non-intrusive. Users simply glance at the system from a comfortable distance to confirm identity and gain access. The system identifies people in less than a second and processes up to 12 people per minute. It captures iris images even if a user is wearing eyeglasses or contact lenses.

"Positive identity authentication is essential for protecting intellectual property and physical IT infrastructure," said Mark Clifton, vice president, Products and Services Division at SRI International. "SRI's N-Glance systems will provide E-Commerce Park Data Center and its clients with trusted identity management in an easy-to-use, practical way."
