PassiveBolt, ZKTECO USA, PDQ, TECH5 Partner on Biometric Solution

A newly formed alliance between PassiveBolt, ZKTECO USA, PDQ Manufacturing, and TECH5 Group is working on the development of a decentralized identity technology for access control solutions.

ANN ARBOR, Mich.—PassiveBolt, ZKTECO USA, PDQ Manufacturing, and TECH5 Group have announced their partnership and plans to develop a new biometric access control solution based on decentralized identity technology.

The companies state this collaboration is aimed at delivering a more secure and efficient way for businesses to manage access to their premises using biometrics, but without needing to store or control biometric data.

According to the manufacturers, the new solution combines the decentralized identity technology of PassiveBolt, the biometric readers of ZKTECO USA, the door locks of PDQ, and the digital identity container technology for encrypted storage of biometric and other data of the identity holder – T5-Cryptograph – of TECH5. This will enable businesses to utilize biometric matching to authenticate the identity of individuals before providing access to physical areas or digital resources.

“Biometric authentication is a growing trend as businesses search for user-friendly methods to secure their facilities and systems and authorize access,” says Kabir Maiga, CEO of PassiveBolt.

“Through our collaboration with ZKTECO USA, PDQ Manufacturing, and TECH5, we can provide a highly secure, decentralized solution that eliminates the need for centralized identity management systems along with its associated privacy and security risks.”

The new solution will employ decentralized identity technology, providing an extra layer of security and privacy. This technology allows individuals to store and manage their own identity data, making it more difficult for hackers to gain access to sensitive information from centralized storage. It is compliant by design with all privacy laws, including BIPA and CCPA.

“We are excited to partner with PassiveBolt, PDQ Manufacturing, and TECH5 to create a new biometric access control solution that leverages decentralized identity technology,” comments Manish Dalal, president of ZKTECO USA.

“This partnership demonstrates our commitment to innovation and our belief in the importance of biometric authentication as a key element of modern security systems.”

Rahul Parthe, co-founder, chairman, and CTO of TECH5 Group, notes will provide the market with a unique way to address access control.

“A decentralized digital identity verified biometrically will become key for access control, especially when it uses revocable biometrics and verification on edge. We believe that this partnership and our innovative approach will provide the access control market with a unique and highly effective solution that is convenient and secure for both – management of buildings and users,” adds Parthe.
