Princeton Identity's Iris-on-the-Move Support's Con Edison's Compliance with CIP Standards for Multi-Factor Authentication

HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J., March 23, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- Princeton Identity Inc., provider of the fastest, simplest and most secure biometric security systems on the market, announced today that Consolidated Edison Inc (Con Edison) has deployed Princeton Identity's (PI) Iris-on-the-Move biometric identity solution in compliance with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission's Critical Infrastructure Protection (CIP) Standards. PI's convenient and highly accurate solution is part of Con Edison's multi-layered approach to control and manage physical access. The "touchless" nature of the technology was a critical factor in its selection; the company would not consider any biometric solution that requires physical contact between users and reader devices.

"The future of security is touchless," says Gross. "With PI's Iris-on-the Move, it's also convenient for users."

The deployment at Con Edison facilities combines PI's sleek, compact Access 200 readers with PI's powerful IDS secure and scalable software latform. System management is simple and intuitive; user enrollment takes under a minute. ADT Commercial installed the PI solution, which integrates seamlessly with the site's access control system.

Scott Gross, Facility Security Officer at Con Edison, says "The future of security is touchless. PI's Iris-on-the-Move is convenient for users, easy for busy people like me to manage, and an excellent option for properties that must meet rigorous CIP standards for multi-factor authentication."

"The high-security requirements of the utility sector, as dictated by the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, make Iris-on-the-Move an ideal solution for identity verification and authentication. It combines unparalleled accuracy with a seamless, touchless user experience that satisfies the needs of all stakeholders," said Bobby Varma, Princeton Identity CEO and Co-Founder.
