27 October 2015 12:45 GMT

Optical fingerprint device vendor SecuGen has announced that its flagship fingerprint reader, the Hamster Pro 20, can now be used for biometric identity management and fraud prevention for SAP system users.

The Hamster has been integrated into biolock, a biometric identity and access management software developed by realtime North America that is the only such system certified by SAP.

The Hamster Pro 20 is FAP 20 certified by the FBI and is listed on the GSA Approved Products List. In addition, the Hamster Pro 20 is STQC certified for use in India's Aadhaar project.

Jeff Brown, VP of Sales and Marketing stated, "The Hamster Pro 20 fingerprint reader works seamlessly with bioLock and SAP software to give security administrators more control than ever before. If a user fails a SecuGen biometric authentication by attempting an unauthorized activity, a supervisor can be automatically alerted by email of the logged security violation. The SecuGen Hamster reader therefore becomes an integral part of an SAP data loss and insider fraud prevention system."

"The SecuGen Hamster Pro 20 is a great product; it is small, rugged and works incredibly well. It is very easy to use with great speed and image quality,"  said Thomas Neudenberger, COO of realtime North America Inc. "We are very impressed with the ergonomics and quality of this reader. The adoption and acceptance of biometrics in corporate environments is dependent on ease of use and convenience as provided by SecuGen's Hamster line of fingerprint readers."

Won Lee, CEO of SecuGen, added, "We are very pleased to be working with realtime AG and realtime North America. Together we are able to provide a level of security demanded by SAP customers which happen to be some of the world's most visible corporations."
