PASADENA, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--3M Cogent, Inc. introduces 3M Cogent BioTrust biometric logon software,
a robust biometric logon replacement software for Windows computer
programs from Microsoft. 3M Cogent BioTrust software uses facial and/or
fingerprint recognition to logon to your PC and websites, replacing the
traditional username and passwords that can be stolen or forgotten.
After more than one year of successful use as a plug-in application for
Hewlett-Packard professional laptops, 3M Cogent BioTrust software is now
available as a standalone version that can be installed on laptop or
desktop computers running Windows XP, Windows Vista or Windows 7 and
uses Internet Explorer 7, or higher. The 3M Cogent BioTrust software is
available in over 30 languages to enhance user experience and
Leveraging over 20 years of research and development in biometric
identification, 3M Cogent’s advanced facial recognition technology is
designed to be robust and adaptive to various environmental lighting
conditions – such as side lighting, backlit areas and low ambient
The 3M Cogent BioTrust software console allows users to customize
security level settings, enroll facial images, and manage Web
Single-Sign-On (SSO) subscriptions. The software’s Password Manager
functions as an automatic Web SSO for website logons. For example, if a
user navigates to a secured Web site—such as Web mail, a social
networking site or an online banking site – after entering their login
details, the software will ask the user if they want to use biometric
identification for future logins.
