BioStar 2 sets the new standard in security.
The powerful biometric access control framework provides system integrators the ability to easily integrate with 3rd party systems and allows software developers to build new applications and functions into BioStar 2.
Accessibility to BioStar 2 and its APIs is further extended through cloud services.
2.2 Highlight Features
When server matching is turned on, BioStar 2 will process all verification of credentials at the BioStar 2 server. Combined with automatic synchronization, the user credential will be duplicated on the device that will act as a failsafe when the server is disconnected or offline.
New Smart Card Features
New Smart Card feature will allow users to utilize smart card in various applications. Access on card mode stores information such as user information, fingerprint template, PIN, and access rules to be used as secure credential card. Secure credential card will exclusively store fingerprint template and PIN on the card for enhanced security for users.
Enhanced logs functionality provides added versatility by capturing and storing more dynamic image logs in addition to text logs. Combined with Suprema terminal that features camera, image logs will provide in-depth view of what actually happened at preset events.
Biometric Security Platform with Development Flexibility
BioStar 2 is released with biggest support for developers and integrators with development flexibility for its biometric security platform.
BioStar 2 release includes BioStar 2 API, a set of REST APIs, which uses JSON formatted data for requests and responses for easier understanding.
Developers can now focus on developing their own solutions or applications without worrying about taking care of little things.
Access Control Module
Enhanced access control module of BioStar 2 includes number of key updates.
It now supports advanced access control features that allows
designing of more complex solutions.
Improved usability allows simpler allocation of users into access groups and configuration of access level for quick deployment.
The module also provides import/export of user group and card IDs for extended user convenience.
BioStar 2 Mobile App makes use of BioStar 2 Cloud through API. It is designed to interact with local BioStar 2 server through BioStar 2 API and allows users to remotely access the server and conduct system/user operations and system monitoring anytime and anyplace.
The use of BioStar 2 API maintains security integrity of the server during remote access.
Easy to Use
Automatic User Synchronization
New Additions, deletions, and modifications of user data on the server wil be automatically synchronized on the devices configured in the system.
Automatic Device Discovery
The feature allows the platform to detect all devices connected within the IP network for configuration and installation.
Automatic Update Notification via Cloud
BioStar 2 receives system update notification through the cloud service.
All updates can be installed with a few simple clicks or automatically depending on the system setting.
Communications between the server to the client is protected by HTTPS encryption, and communication between server to device is protected by 256bit AES encryption
BioStar 2 also protects user data such as fingerprint, PIN, and password using 256bit encryption standards.
What's New in BioStar 2.2
2.2 marks the second major update to the web-based security platform, BioStar 2.
While 2.1 version’s major focus was set on providing development support for integrators and developers, 2.2 updates’ major goal was to provide more functionality to the platform.
Additional access control features will help businesses to be more secure and productive.
Also, improvements to the foundation of the platform enhances security, stability, and performance.
