Many security products hit the market each year, but only a few are good enough to have longevity.

Deciding what product to use for an install can be difficult, but a panel of judges at ISC West 2012 have stepped in to make things a bit easier for CIs working in the security field.

The Security Industry Association’s New Product Showcase (NPS) awards honored 23 of the best new security products, including MorphoTrak’s MorphoAccess VP that was named Best New Product. MorphoAccess VP is a physical access control reader that integrates multimodal finger vein and fingerprint biometric technology into a single sensor and device.

“The NPS program recognizes products that meet a previously unmet need, and judges saw that in MorphoTrak Inc.‘s MorphoAccess VP,” says SIA NPS Chair Jennifer Martin of Pixim. “It’s this kind of innovation that exemplifies what the New Product Showcase is all about.

“The Siqura BC620WDR from TKH Security Solutions, which won the Judges’ Choice Award, is a great example of bringing innovation to the marketplace,” Martin added.
