ACS Launches Product Line Websites

Aside from making our smart card readers viewable through our website, we have come out with six websites, each featuring one of our smart card reader lines.

This is intended to help users make side-by-side comparisons of ACS readers more easily. Each product line website combines into one page all overviews of the ACS smart card readers that fall under it. Links to websites for individual products and other related content are also included in the product line websites.

We hope that this makes it easier for those interested in smart card technology to find the solution that best matches their needs. Below are links to the product line websites:

pclinkedreaderzonePC-Linked Readers — these CCID– and PC/SC–compliant readers come in all sizes and form factors, to match user needs and preferences.

pinpadreaderzoneSmart card readers with pinpad —these readers employ two-factor authentication (smart card + PIN) to secure contact and contactless applications. These handy readers may be attached with peripherals such as portable printers, for greater functionality.

fingerprintreaderzoneSmart card/fingerprint readers — these readers employ two-factor authentication (smart card + fingerprint) for contact and contactless applications. These readers use silicon sensors for better performance, easier implementation, and more savings.

otpreaderzoneDynamic password generators —these readers use one-time password (OTP) technology to address password theft, and limits exposure of sensitive information within itself, instead of exposing it to PC terminals and other devices vulnerable to online attacks.
