Iris Biometrics Access Control Installed At Microsoft Operations Centre
AOptix Technologies has announced a strategic partnership for iris biometric security with the Microsoft Global Security Operations Centre (GSOC) in Redmond, Washington. Integration of the AOptix InSight iris recognition system brings state-of-the art iris identification to Microsoft, their customers and partners.


Working at a nominal distance of 2 metres, the InSight system fully automates biometric image acquisition and provides consistent verification of a subject’s identity in just 2 seconds. The system employs innovative adaptive optics technology that automatically finds the subject’s face and eyes within a very large capture volume, making subject participation effortless. This increased recognition space allows for varying personnel needs such as multiple heights ranging from ADA wheelchairs to an excess of seven feet.

“To meet 21st Century security threats, we must forge strategic long-term partnerships with industry leaders such as AOptix,” said Brian Tuskan, senior director of operations, technology, investigations at Microsoft Global Security. ”AOptix, a key Microsoft partner, is helping set a new standard for advanced iris biometrics with products such as the InSight device, which will bring enhanced security to our Global Security Operations Centre in Redmond, Washington.”

“Our innovative technology approach compliments Microsoft’s commitment to offer a suite of leading edge security solutions,” said Dean Senner, chairman, president and CEO of AOptix Technologies. “We are delighted to be in partnership with Microsoft to bring comprehensive iris recognition to the unique and powerful security capabilities that Microsoft has put together.”

AOptix foresees strong growth in biometrics enabled access control solutions in the near future. Data centres and security operations are two notable high risk facilities types addressable by this partnership.
