Daon products are broadly categorized by Platform, Tools, and Applications.
Biometric Identity Assurance
Daon enables enterprise-wide identity assurance. Our products provide a simple and consistent way to implement biometric solutions in a fast, flexible and cost-efficient manner.
Based on a modern, modular design and an open, standards-based architecture, the Daon identity assurance product suite provides the enabling technology wherever people need to be identified - extending existing IT investment, while providing the highest levels of security and flexibility to counter the risks of identity fraud across multiple sectors.
Daon has introduced a range of products for a wide variety of applications. Daon’s products may be broadly categorized as Platform (providing the identity management within the overall identity solution), Tools, and Applications.
DaonEngine-This is the core flagship platform that enables customers to manage biometric data and associated identity functions in a scalable, reliable and secure manner. With DaonEngine, organizations can leverage multi-modal biometric technologies (face, finger, iris, hand geometry, voice, and others) and multi-factor authentication technologies (smart cards, RFID, passports, passwords, ID cards, and others) to provide a broad range of services including verification, identification, watchlist management, investigation, identity issuance and more. This capability is delivered through a true service oriented architecture enabling rapid integration with complimentary COTS products and seamless integration into a customer's business environment.
SnapIns-DaonEngine is designed to provide inherent support for multiple biometric modes and capabilities. Unlike systems designed to support a single biometric mode into which other biometrics are added later, DaonEngine is biometric technology neutral meaning there is no bias towards specific biometrics devices or matching algorithms. A key concept in supporting this is our “SnapIn” framework. A SnapIn encapsulates a biometric matching algorithm, typically provided by a third-party vendor. SnapIns may offer biometric verification, identification, and transformation capabilities or provide a means of interface to other external systems.
DaonEnroll-DaonEnroll is a highly configurable platform for building encounter applications. DaonEnroll meets a critical need in programs where a person must be physically present to either establish their identity with identity documents and/or provide physical characteristics such as a biometric.
Daon Enrollment Manager-This is a configurable enterprise software product which constructs an enrollment business process around strong identity capture or enrollment applications. When the enrollment process requires multiple steps or multiple roles, this application instantiates and orchestrates the business process including all points when user intervention is required, including assessment and credential issuance.
Unified ID-Unified ID a turn-key system that provides secure biometric enrollment, verification, and provisioning to logical and physical access systems. Built on the powerful Daon platform, it pulls together many Daon products into a single deployable product.
Credential Connect-Our Credential Connect product provisions users from identity management systems to physical and logical access control systems enabling the use of new, single use, common credentials across an enterprise. Credential Connect forms the pipeline of cardholder data between a central Identity Management System and both the Physical Access Control System (PACS) and Logical Access Control System (LACS).
DaonAnalytics-Although Daon utilizes a number of technical tools such as capture and smart card frameworks, and software development kits (SDKs), Daon Analytics provides an accurate scientific toolset for the measurement of biometric device and algorithm performance in pilot and operational projects. Its enables organizations to understand the real-world performance of biometric components and tailor their deployments to optimize performance.
Benefits of Daon Products
Demonstrated in its deployments, Daon products have the flexibility to be configured for a wide range of populations – from mission-critical nationally and internationally scaled systems down to small pilots. Furthermore, Daon products are highly flexible and enable organizations to dynamically choose the levels of identity assurance necessary for their business operations. Organizations deploying the Daon product suite are able to seamlessly integrate biometric processes into their business operations in a manner that suits their security, privacy and identity assurance needs.
In an environment where Time To Market (TTM) and cost are key competitive factors, Daon’s products help its clients to substantially reduce the risk, time and cost associated with biometric systems.
The differentiating factors of the Daon product suite include:
Daon has the most flexible platform available, which is highly configurable, proven in the market, and supports solutions ranging in size from very small to very large.
The 2008 Frost & Sullivan Award for Product Line Strategy Leadership of the Year in the world biometrics market was presented to Daon for its suite of biometric products. This award acknowledges the ability of Daon products to meet the real-world needs of end-users in the global biometrics market.
