SEOUL, KOREA, Apr 19, 2018 - (ACN Newswire) - Suprema ID, a global leader in biometrics and ID solutions, today announced that it will unveil the world's first fingerprint scanners featuring machine learning based Live Fingerprint Detection (LFD) technology at the ID4Africa 2018 exhibition in Abuja, Nigeria on April 24-26.
RealScan-G10 and RealScan-D, Suprema's best-selling fingerprint enrollment scanners, provide new levels of anti-spoof security equipped with the world's first machine learning based LFD technology. The new technology was developed to overcome the inherent limitations in live scanning by applying machine learning techniques to analyze and categorize image patterns by the characteristics of faked fingerprint materials including clay, rubber, silicon, paper and film. With this new technology, RealScan Series live scanners now eliminate fraud by fake fingerprinting or 'spoofing'.
"New machine learning based LFD clearly reflects our market focus and commitment to innovation in ID solutions. The technology is designed to meet the stringent security requirements of unmanned security systems including automatic border control and kiosk scanning systems. We are experiencing increasing demand for anti-spoofing technology on our live scanning devices. With this innovation, Suprema ID will enhance its position as a major provider of ID solutions to global markets," said Bogun Park, CEO at Suprema ID.
Suprema ID will be demonstrating the new LFD technology at ID4Africa 2018 with RealScan-G10 and RealScan-D scanners. To experience the latest innovations in ID solutions, please visit the Suprema ID stand (#C28) at ID4Africa 2018 or book a demo at www.suprema-id.com.

Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
Cybersecurity Insights - People
Cyber resilience will be particularly important as Australian organisations face increased pressure to quickly detect, respond to, and manage the repercussions of breaches in the wake of 2018’s Notifiable Data Breaches (NDB) scheme.
