Crossmatch Fingerprint Reader Provides Biometric Security for ThinkPad T490 Healthcare Edition

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.
