Sept 8, 2010 – Gemalto, the world leader in digital security, today announced the launch of the innovative PROX DU™ smart card reader for physical and logical access control. The dual-interface reader makes it convenient to securely access a host of applications using both contactless and contact technologies, with one single device. These include employee corporate badge, electronic identity and healthcare. The PROX DU is fully plug-n-play on Windows® OS in both contactless and contact modes, a feature unique to the Gemalto solution.
The PROX DU distinguishes itself with a sleek design, light weight, ergonomics and remarkable ease of use. Running on native Windows® OS drivers, it requires no additional software installation for the end user. For organizations, PROX DU is extremely easy to implement – by simply plugging the device into a USB port – thus reducing total cost of ownership. This innovation reinforces Gemalto’s global leadership for smart readers(1).
Enterprises can take advantage of the versatility to provide their personnel with secure access to premises, their information networks and company applications. The PROX DU is also suitable for retail and mass transit applications where speed is crucial, as well as for e-banking transactions and loyalty programs.
