Finguard Co., Ltd.
We offer door locks using fingerprint recognition, which feature both convenience and crime prevention functionality.
We are a general agent for Japan for the major Korean enterprise KJ Hightech. We have delivered about 2000 sets of Finguard (house brand) so far to enterprises, hospitals, homes for elderly people, and individuals. Finguard is convenient because keys are not used and it features high crime-prevention functionality by using biometric authentication. Entering and leaving times and the time present for each individual becomes clear due to time recording, so this product has the advantage of enabling strict attendance management. Recognition of the importance of security is becoming stronger in the context of the Personal Information Protection Law and so on. Our goal is to disseminate safe, secure, and convenient security systems.
[Company strength] Our product Finguard is a security system with a fingerprint recognition terminal. It simultaneously features convenience (it is completely keyless) and high crime-prevention functionality by using biometric authentication. This system has three key features. Firstly, it has excellent fingerprint recognition capabilities. A fingerprint can be read from every direction within the world’s fastest speed of 0.1 seconds, with an authentication rate of 99%. Secondly, we are a general agent for Japan for the major Korean fingerprint authentication manufacturer KJ Hightech. We possess exclusive distribution rights, so we can offer products with a low initial cost. Thirdly, the running cost can be reduced since the creation of a card key is not required. We can also offer services from installation work to personal registration and after-sale service in a business partnership with the Japan Lock Security Association. Customers can utilize our products with a sense of security. [Business description] Our company was founded in 2006 for the purpose of selling crime prevention equipment such as door locks using fingerprint recognition. The field of security in enterprises and private homes has been attracting attention since that time. However, the fragility of biometric authentication systems led to many false recognitions and the inability to identify individuals. The introduction of authentication-type crime prevention goods for private homes has not made progress. This is why we directed out attention to the biometric authentication system technology of KJ Hightech, which is a major enterprise in Korea that possesses advanced security technology. We have delivered 2000 sets of Finguard (house brand) so far to enterprises, hospitals, and individuals (private homes) as a general agent for Japan. [Industry] Wholesaling (machine and device wholesaling; electric machine and device wholesaling) [Representative's message] I founded this company with the goal of supplying safe, secure, and convenient security systems. Japan is not very advanced in the field of security, and security systems have not yet been widely disseminated. There are enterprises that have trouble caused due to introducing poor domestic Japanese or overseas security products. There are also enterprises that feel stress because the same kinds of biometric authentication products from other companies cannot perform accurate recognition. Strict management has become necessary with the introduction of Japan’s National Identification Number (the My Number system). We hope that we can be of some help in disseminating safe, secure, and convenient security systems to participating enterprises through J-Good Tech. [Company structure for market development/overseas expansion] We are a small enterprise consisting of only the representative. We have no in-house sales organization, but we have cooperating companies nationwide that work as our sales agencies. We will reliably respond to any inquiries by telephone and e-mail. We can visit the customer if necessary and demonstrate the equipment. Member companies of the Japan Lock Security Association (about 900 member companies in Japan) will perform the construction work such as equipment installation. Please feel free to contact us. We support customers with attentive after-sale service after the completion of equipment installation, from the first fingerprint registration to an explanation of the method of use.
