Frost & Sullivan Commends MorphoTrak’s Innovation-based Growth in the Fingerprint Biometrics Market

MorphoWave™ addresses the growing demand for a solution that enables accurate and rapid frictionless access control 

MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif. — January 6, 2016 — Based on its recent analysis of the fingerprint biometrics market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes MorphoTrak, LLC, a U.S. subsidiary of Morpho (Safran), with the 2015 North American Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award. The success of MorphoTrak’s latest contactless fingerprint scanning technology, MorphoWave™, has consolidated the company’s position as a top-rung player in the fingerprint biometrics market. MorphoWave is a highly accurate and affordable fingerprint biometric solution that is simple to use and enables large numbers of users to move through access points without bottlenecks or inconvenience.

The design of the groundbreaking MorphoWave Tower was based on inputs gleaned from the extensive testing of the core technology in desktop format, for a number of high-profile government and private-sector clients. The MorphoWave Tower presents a fusion of real-world practicality and application through the most cutting-edge biometric technology.

“MorphoWave is recognized as the world’s first biometric access solution to capture four fingerprints through a single wave of either hand in any direction,” said Frost & Sullivan Research Analyst Ram Ravi. “It not only depicts fingerprint data with optimal accuracy, but also guarantees field-proven results by overcoming common challenges such as wet fingers, extremely dry fingers, latent fingerprints, or residue and dirt on the scanner platen. Competing systems have yet to overcome these issues.”

MorphoWave Desktop has recently achieved FBI certification for meeting the Personal Identity Verification (PIV) Image Quality Specifications standard,” commented Ravi. “This validates the superior quality and accuracy of the fingerprint images captured by MorphoWave, and confirms Frost & Sullivan’s assessment of MorphoTrak’s exceptional imaging products.”

In addition to scanning fingerprints, MorphoWave measures the 3D shape of each finger. This information enables MorphoWave to reliably acquire significantly more surface area from each finger than traditional contact-based sensors can. Besides, the imaging technology ensures maximum interoperability with legacy databases acquired on 2D contact-based systems, which provides great efficiency, especially to large government organizations that wish to leverage existing data.

In the past 18 months, Morpho deployed the MorphoWave system at several North American financial institutions, as well as in a number of manufacturing facilities in China and India, where the employee traffic is high. In addition to MorphoWave, MorphoTrak launched three other products in 2015 for fingerprinting and access control (MorphoAccess® SIGMA Lite and SIGMA Lite+), video analytics (Morpho Video Investigator—MVI), and cloud services (Morpho Cloud AFIS-as-a-Service).

“MorphoTrak has excelled in engineering biometric solutions for applications as diverse as commercial access control, border control, mobile identification, contactless ID for finger, face, and iris, and enterprise cloud services,” noted Ravi. “The organization is constantly innovating and widening the range of its solution offerings.”

Achieving excellence despite customer volatility and economic uncertainty underlines MorphoTrak's commitment to customer satisfaction and ability to stand out in an intensely competitive market. The broad range of MorphoTrak deployments to date points to the remarkable market acceptance potential of the technology.

Celeste Thomasson, President and CEO of MorphoTrak, remarked, “Frost & Sullivan is known worldwide for its market research and competitive product comparison. An award presented by Frost & Sullivan carries the added benefit of the organization’s stellar reputation for sound business analysis and strategic recommendations. We appreciate the recognition that accompanies the Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year Award, especially as the award is based not only on our ever-expanding range of biometric products, but on MorphoTrak’s commitment to breaking new ground with each product it brings to market.”

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that has demonstrated excellence in terms of growth strategy and implementation.
