Xyntek uses Nymi Bands and other technologies such as iris and fingerprint scanning technologies into their operations and processes. These solutions bring significant improvements and efficiencies to complex and GxP controlled laboratory, manufacturing, and healthcare processes that require user authentication and electronic signatures to review/approve completion of critical process steps. Nymi's unique wearable authentication solution, activated by a user's biometrics, keeps workers continuously authenticated to facilitate rapid logins/e-signatures with just a tap of their wrist, said Xyntek in a press release.

“In the past a user's identity was verified based on what we know, such as our username/passwords/PINs or what we have, such as ID & access cards,” said Mac Hashemian, P.E., CEO of Xyntek. “Biometric authentication enables user identification based on who we are, by using unique physical characteristics such as iris patterns and fingerprints to allow access to extremely sensitive systems, information and/or environments. With digital transformation and the push for mobility, we now have to factor in "what extends us" to this equation. The Nymi Biometric wearable technology provides an additional level of flexibility that provides operators with a more efficient way to achieve compliance and security without compromising productivity.”

Xyntek's platform is built around a high-availability centralized authentication service which transforms a user's biometric identity into their enterprise account credentials in seconds. Xyntek's biometric platform supports all standard biometric devices including fingerprints and iris scanners, and our new partnership will add wearable technology, Nymi Bands, to the platform.

“We are excited to be working closely with Xyntek and integrating the Nymi Bands into Xyntek's portfolio of solutions and services,” said Andrew Foxcroft, Vice President of Nymi. “There are many use cases in the Life Sciences GxP environments that can benefit from wearable authentication devices.  By combining our technology with Xyntek's Biometric Authentication Platform, we can address a number of important use cases featuring enterprise authentication that delivers data integrity and security, allowing highly regulated industries to achieve compliance and productivity.”
