Regular login, confirmation, and electronic signatures in accordance with 21 CFR Part 11 take up a lot of time and may become a security risk if workers fail to comply with the regulations for the secure use of passwords. Electronic or biometric authentication solutions, employing an RFID card or Nymi Band for example, permit more efficient and secure working. User authentication then takes just a matter of seconds, reduces incorrect entries, and saves a significant amount of time.
There are various options for incorporating the authentication interface - including integration into the glass keyboard or the use of a special CONNECT BOX attached to the HMI system. All the solutions conform to IP65 and were developed specially for cleanroom applications.
Authentication on HMI system via CONNECT BOX
Authentication via RFID on PILOT (optional)
for ergonomic mounting on the HMI system
for placing or mounting on benches or shelves
for flush-mounted installation with or without stainless steel frame
Nymi is a leading edge biometric security company. Our enterprise authentication delivers data integrity and security, allowing highly regulated industries to achieve compliance and productivity.
"With the CONNECT BOX of Systec & Solutions we have found a Nymi-compatible solution that makes work for our users easier as it replaces the steady entry of user name and password for authentication with a single touch at the CONNECT BOX. As it supports biometric methods it constitutes a safe authentication solution in accordance with current regulatory requirements, which further improves the safety as well as the digital integrity of our production sites. Fortunately our already implemented HMI systems can be easily upgraded. At the moment we are piloting the solution to test user acceptance of the Nymi band and functionality in daily business. If the solution lives up to its promises, we would like to initiate the roll out at all pharmaceutical sites of Bayer AG worldwide."
