Biometrics for Remote Desktop is a reliable software solution that allows to redirect locally plugged biometric sensors, such as fingerprint scanners, vein scanners or signature pads, to remote desktop session.
In standard situations, using biometric devices in a remote desktop environment is problematic or even impossible. Normally you would have to use some complex workarounds.
Biometrics for Remote Desktop allows to redirect biometric scanners to remote Windows session, with a single mouse click.
Biometrics for Remote Desktop is extremely easy to use. The solution consists of two parts: Workstation and Server. The Workstation part should be installed on the local computer and the Server part goes to the remote server where you login via RDP, PCoIP or Citrix.
As soon as both parts are installed, no additional configuring is required. Every time you login to remote session, biometric devices are transferred automatically. So, any software that requires fingerprint or biometrics sensor input being launched in remote desktop sessions can work as if the scanner was plugged directly to the remote side.
USB device drivers are not required on the remote side. It’s really important since the most of USB biometrics scanners are not designed to work in Terminal Server environment. And usually there are no drivers for Windows Server.
Using Biometrics for Remote Desktop makes it possible to use fingerprint, singature or other biometrics in Terminal Server environment even without having USB device drivers.
In case of multi-user environment (Windows Server 2008, 2012, 2016), if there is more than one user logged in to the remote side, each biometrics scanner is isolated within its individual session so you don't need to worry that somebody else will get access to sensitive data. Each user can see only own biometrics devices within the remote session, so you don't need to scroll through the list of devices of other users to find yours.
The most popular biometric sensors, such as fingerprint readers, signature pads or vein scanners, are supported. In the current version a wide list of devices produced by Futronic, 3M Cogent, Safran, SecuGen, Nitgen, Fujitsu and Wacom can be redirected into the remote desktop session.

Biometrics for Remote Desktop supports different remote desktop protocols including Microsoft RDP, Teradici PCoIP, Citrix ICA. It does not matter what environment is used (Microsoft Terminal Services, Citrix XenApp, Citrix XenDesktop, VMware View, Amazon Workspaces). Any compatible Client software is used for accessing remote side.
It doesn't matter what kind of environment is used. The solution works fine with both multi-user and single-user environments. It’s possible to use PCs or virtual machines (VMware, Hyper-V, Citrix XenApp, VirtualBox or any other).
Biometrics for Remote Desktop redirects biometric information to remote side with low-latency. It’s also not sensitive to high-latency and slow network connections. Everything works like the device was plugged directly.
If you are looking for solution for Linux you have already found it. Biometrics for Remote Desktop works perfectly in most distributions of Linux operating system. It includes plugins for FreeRDP, Citrix Receiver and VMware Horizon Client.
We use Safran fingerprint readers. While trying USB redirection it works slow in some branches and does not work for Terminal Server 2012. And now we are switching to Biometrics RDP software and it works really good.
Biometrics for Remote Desktop functionality can be easily integrated into your application. So you allow terminal server users to access local biometric scanners in remote Windows session. Read more…
