Toronto, Ontario, CANADA – December 8, 2020 – Nymi, Inc. today announced a technology partnership with ELATEC, a world leader in RFID readers and NFC/BLE mobile device readers. The partnership enables users of Nymi’s Workplace WearablesTM to seamlessly open doors and authenticate to systems, devices and machines that utilize ELATEC’s readers.
The Nymi Band™ is the world’s only workplace wearable wristband that, once authenticated, offers the convenience of continuously authenticating the identity of the user until it is removed from the wrist. This delivers zero-trust security principles and access control using convenient fingerprint and heartbeat biometrics to users seeking touchless authentication.
With their flexible architecture, customizable open API and remote programmability, ELATEC RFID readers are ubiquitous in Europe and increasingly utilized in organizational ecosystem applications in North America, from vending and dispensing to secure printing, and from computer single sign-on to door access.
“This partnership with ELATEC provides important market reach and compatibility for our Workplace Wearables,” said Andrew Foxcroft, Vice President of Nymi. “The Nymi Band is being rapidly adopted in industries like pharma and medical device manufacturing with an emphasis on privacy, security, and a natural user experience. ELATEC reader compatibility will facilitate penetration of these and other industries and global regions.”
The Nymi Band enables organizations to incorporate Nymi’s passwordless technology with applications that ensure the health, safety, and security of connected workers, enabling a range of use cases that includes COVID-19 social distancing and contact tracing, among others.
“We’re delighted to be working with Nymi in providing a frictionless and hands-free authentication, authorization, and access control solution for our customers across numerous industries,” said Paul Massey, CEO of ELATEC Inc. “Wearable technology enables a very positive user experience and exciting new applications for our reader solutions.”
