Enterprise Security Magazine | Monday, September 21, 2020

Fulcrum Biometrics Inc., has recently announced that it has acquired the DelaneyBiometrics along with intellectual property and distribution rights, from Delaney Secure Ltd.

FREMONT, CA: Fulcrum Biometrics, Inc., is a leading provider of biometrics and identity management solutions and the developer of the FbF Rapid Multi-Biometric Enablement Software Suite. The company has announced its acquisition of the DelaneyBiometrics business, along with intellectual property and distribution rights, from Delaney Secure Ltd., a UK biometrics organization specializing in cloud-based time and attendance and access control. The acquisition's objective is to strengthen Fulcrum's off-the-shelf biometric solution by providing for small and medium enterprises, especially in the field of access control and time and attendance.

The three major biometric solutions that Fulcrum has purchased are DelaneyCloud, DelaneyID, and DelaneyGatekeeper. The DelaneyCloud is a SaaS-based plug-n-play biometric timesheet solution that can be easily implemented, manages cost, increases efficiency, and offers independent auditable timesheet data from any web browser. It is specifically developed for construction organizations and other businesses with temporary, mobile, and remote workforces. On the other hand, DelaneyGatekeeper and DelaneyID are implemented for access control management in secure facilities like data centers and factories. It can also be applied in membership driven companies like health clubs and gyms.

According to Ken Nosker, CEO of Fulcrum Biometrics, "The addition of DelaneyBiometrics intellectual property further increases Fulcrum Biometrics' share in the biometrics solution market and expands our geographic reach into Western and Central Europe. With the backing of our parent corporation, Fujitsu Frontech North America Inc., Fulcrum is aggressively expanding our multi-modal biometric solution offerings and looking to move strategically into new territories."

DelaneyBiometrics Managing Director, Paul Guckian, said, "The complete integration of the DelaneyBiometrics products into the Fulcrum Biometrics solution stack is expected to take several months. Our customers can expect to receive the same great support and products as before, together with a significantly larger development team to further develop the solutions and achieve global scale." Paul added, "Fulcrum's leadership position in biometrics can bring organizational capability and sales growth that would have taken years to achieve organically."
