Because physical features such as fingerprints and pupils are so difficult to forge, biometrics is a strong security solution, though we see biometrics as part of a comprehensive security solution that might also include a password and/or physical device such as a key, card, or token.
In the workplace, biometrics can be part of a strong security protocol for access to internal systems, files, information, and data. And it can be as simple as touching a finger or looking into a camera lens.
For large organisations, biometrics can be an effective way for IT to manage security protocols for employee access, privileges, and passwords.
Like anything, biometrics is only as good as its weakest link. So it’s important that the biometric data collected, stored, or transferred is secure and accurate. But how?
Learn why biometric security is needed and what technology is used to secure your biometric information.
The latest industry standard for fast and secure authentication.
Ideal for enterprise deployment and easily integrated into current IT infrastructure. Users keep their key for secure login, while IT can easily manage employee access, privileges, and passwords.
Advanced fingerprint technology such as Match-in-Sensor™ securely stores encrypted fingerprint data in the sensor module, whereas the older Match-on-Host system transfers unsecured data between the sensor and host device.
Delivers results above the industry standard for false rejection rate (FRR) and false acceptance rate (FAR).
While no security solution can guarantee full protection, biometrics is yet another strong link in your security chain. In addition to the inherent uniqueness of an individual’s biometric data (and therefore the level of security this offers), biometrics offers a passwordless solution.
“More than 12M people may be affected by latest medical data breach. Why those patients are now vulnerable.”

“CBP says traveler photos and license plate images stolen in data breach.”
“Over 10 Million people hit in single Australian data breach: OAIC.”
“Third party data breach to blame for data leaks of major hotel chains.”

“Police investigate University of South Wales data breach.”
“A cyber forensics team has been called in to investigate breaches that exposed nearly 20 million patient records.”
As leaders in physical device security, it’s only natural for us to evolve our offerings to include biometric security.
