AuthenTec Inc. (AUTH) is the world leader in providing fingerprint authentication sensors and solutions to the high-volume PC, wireless device, and access control markets. The company has sold more than 30 million sensors worldwide.
AuthenTec’s sensors utilize the company’s patented TruePrint and TrueMatch technologies, which allow fingerprints to be read below the surface of the skin to the “live” layer – or true fingerprint layer. This technology is not affected by common skin-surface conditions like dry, worn, calloused, oily, or dirty skin that can affect other sensors’ ability to acquire accurate fingerprint images for user authentication purposes. The company’s fingerprint sensor technologies are the only technologies capable of acquiring everyone’s fingerprint under virtually any condition.
