Based in Germany with local subsidiaries in North America, the UK and Asia-Pacific, Softpro provides biometric solutions that are increasingly used in industries such as banking, insurance, retail, government, health, life sciences and defence. Softpro’s customers include American Express, Bank of America, Barclays, JPMorgan Chase, Lloyds TSB, Saudi Chamber of Commerce and Wachovia.
Its partners include Fujitsu Siemens Computers/Fujitsu, IBM, Microsoft, Motion Computing, Toshiba, Wacom and APP Informatik Davos.
As well as developing its research links with the Department of Electronics, Softpro will fund a prize for the best-performing student on the University’s MSc programme in Information Security and Biometrics.
Professor Michael Fairhurst, Head of the Department of Electronics at Kent and co-founder of the United Kingdom Biometrics Institute (UKBI), said: ‘I am pleased that such an experienced and respected company in international biometric solutions is supporting our MSc programme. The course is already proving to be extremely popular, and it will greatly benefit from Softpro’s support and endorsement.’
Frank Fuchs, CEO of the Softpro Group, added: ‘We highly value the University of Kent’s expertise in biometrics and are happy to support its MSc in Information Security and Biometrics. Softpro is looking forward to continuing its work with Kent on ISO standards and signature-related research projects.’
Kent’s MSc in Information Security and Biometrics provides an advanced level of learning in the field of biometrics and security, providing students with a thorough understanding of the theories, concepts and techniques for the design, development and effective use of secure systems. It also aims to produce graduates who are readily capable of adapting to changes in the field and leading it in innovation.

Using ultrafast flashes of laser and x-ray radiation, scientists at the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics (Garching, Germany) took snapshots of the briefest electron motion inside a solid material to date. The electron motion lasted only 750 billionths of the billionth of a second before it fainted, setting a new record of human capability to capture ultrafast processes inside solids!
When x-rays shine onto solid materials or large molecules, an electron is pushed away from its original place near the nucleus of the atom, leaving a hole...
For the first time, physicists have successfully imaged spiral magnetic ordering in a multiferroic material. These materials are considered highly promising candidates for future data storage media. The researchers were able to prove their findings using unique quantum sensors that were developed at Basel University and that can analyze electromagnetic fields on the nanometer scale. The results – obtained by scientists from the University of Basel’s Department of Physics, the Swiss Nanoscience Institute, the University of Montpellier and several laboratories from University Paris-Saclay – were recently published in the journal Nature.
Multiferroics are materials that simultaneously react to electric and magnetic fields. These two properties are rarely found together, and their combined...
