Santa Clara, California (February 15, 2016) – SecuGen, a world leading optical fingerprint device and technology vendor, is pleased to announce that they will be unveiling a new, lower cost fingerprint reader, the Hamster Pro™, at the RSA Conference 2016 in San Francisco’s Moscone Center.
Attendees are invited to come by SecuGen’s booth, number 4615 in the North Hall of Moscone Center to see a demonstration of the new, low cost fingerprint reader and accompanying OEM sensor.
The Hamster Pro is a compact, accurate, and robust fingerprint reader, being offered at an incredibly low price. SecuGen is well known around the world and throughout the biometrics industry for providing high quality fingerprint products at prices suitable for large deployments. The Hamster Pro is SecuGen’s lowest price fingerprint reader to date.
The UPx is the OEM version of the same product. The UPx is compact for easy integration and very low priced for large deployments.
