SecureVault is unique hardware and software system for protecting an often-overlooked part of card identity systems materials security. SecureVault tracks the movement and use of blank cards, printer ribbons, holographic films and other sensitive materials.
Holographic Foil Cards
These cards feature a tamper-resistant, instantly verifiable foil that’s permanently embedded into the card surface. The foil alone helps make non-laminated ID cards more secure, or it can add another security layer to laminated cards.
Optional dual-sided printing
Dual-sided printing doubles the printable area of your ID cards. That means you can put larger photos on the front, and additional information, bar codes and digitized signatures on the back. Dual-sided printing can also make cards harder to counterfeit.
Optional smart card encoding
Comprehensive security applications frequently combine photo IDs with some type of technology or “smart” cards. With optional modules, Fargo’s Professional Series printer/encoders can encode up to three smart card technologies in one pass: contact and contactless smart card, magnetic stripe, and proximity card (read-only).
SmartLoad™ ribbon cartridge
The FGO-44100 takes the hassle out of handling printer supplies. Its SmartLoad ribbon cartridge combines the printer ribbon and card-cleaning roller into one disposable unit. Just slide in the cartridge, close the door and you’re done. No feeding or tearing ribbon rolls, no fumbling with separate cleaning rollers.
A stolen ID card printer or even just a stolen ribbon can turn into gold for a counterfeiter. The FGO-44100 uses Fargo’s exclusive SecureMark Technology to reduce vulnerabilities like these. For example, ribbon cartridges can be coded to work with a specific DTC400; a stolen ribbon won’t work in any other printer.
After you’ve read through all of the features and options, checked the specs, and have seen how the FGO-44100 fits into a secure card identity system, you ultimately have to ask: Is this the right card printer/encoder for my security applications? As you ponder your purchase decision, here are some things to consider:
Protecting people, property and information is everyone’s priority these days. In companies, schools, libraries, retail establishments and a wide range of other organizations, the DTC400 has proven itself as an incredibly easy way to enhance your security. The optional dual-sided printing module gives you extra room on the back of each card for additional security information, bar codes and digitized signatures. Printing on VeriMark™ or HoloMark™ foil cards gives your IDs an extra, hard-to-counterfeit layer of protection.
The FGO-44100 is designed to adapt to your changing security needs. It offers a full range of field-upgradeable smart card encoding modules, so you can add functionality to your basic photo IDs. Start with a magnetic stripe encoder, for example, then upgrade later on to more advanced smart card technologies for controlling access to facilities, networks and information. The DTC400 can also be networked for distributed card issuance applications.
We can’t say it enough: An ID card is only as secure as the system that issued it. And
makes the world’s most secure card identity systems. They’re built on a common technology platform
’s exclusive SecureMark® Technology that reduces vulnerabilities throughout the system, from storing blank ribbons to password-protecting printers. When you combine the DTC400 printer/encoder with our Print Security Suite™ software and SecureVault™ materials management system, you surround your card issuance process with exceptionally high-level protection.
