M2SYS Technology, a global biometrics research and development firm, announced today the release of its newest innovation --Hybrid Biometric Platform ( . Hybrid Biometric Platform is a client/server biometric recognition system that supports fingerprint, finger vein, palm vein, and iris biometrics. After a single integration with Hybrid Biometric Platform, developers can immediately utilize any of these biometric modalities. This flexibility ensures that customers are never locked into a single biometric technology or biometric device that might not reliably work for all users.


Bio-Plugin ( , M2SYS' patent-pending biometric middleware technology, enables companies to rapidly integrate Hybrid Biometric Platform without the costs that are typically associated with low-level biometric SDK development and support. The combined technologies allow developers to quickly deploy a run-time independent Hybrid Biometrics system that ensures optimal performance regardless of user demographic, ethnicity, environmental conditions or usability challenges. Subsequently, the technology augments return on investment, time-to-market and project success rates.

"Bio-Plugin with Hybrid Biometrics is a game-changer for the biometrics industry," noted Mizan Rahman, CEO and CTO of M2SYS. "Seven years of real-world experience has taught us that some forms of biometric technology will perform better than others in certain environments. Our innovation ensures that customers can easily implement the right technology so that biometric projects always achieve success. In addition, and perhaps most importantly, developers who integrate Hybrid Biometric Platform can instantly switch between four types of USB biometric scanners ( without touching their source code. Compared to low-level biometric SDK development, Hybrid Biometrics with Bio-Plugin offers a much lower total cost of ownership and unrivaled adaptability."

"To illustrate the impact that Bio-Plugin and Hybrid Biometric Platform deliver, consider the use of biometric recognition technology ( to eliminate 'buddy punching', or one employee clocking in for another," suggested Michael Trader, president of M2SYS. "Using Bio-Plugin, leading workforce management (WFM) software companies have integrated M2SYS biometric software to equip their customers with this capability at the PC. Depending on certain user or environmental variables, some biometric sensors might produce inconsistent results. Without the need for additional coding, the WFM integrator can immediately deploy Hybrid Biometric Platform and provide the best biometric technology according to customer needs. For example, fingerprint biometrics could be used at some locations and vascular biometrics at others."
