Fingerprint & Security Keys

We’re not far off from biometrics becoming commonplace in our everyday lives. In fact, it already is. Biometrics unlocks your phone, pays bills, grants access, and so much more — all by identifying your unique physical characteristics.

Why biometrics?

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.

Without getting too techy . . .

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?

Secure Encryption and Transfer of Data

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.

Anti-Spoofing Technology

Delivers results above the industry standard for false rejection rate (FRR) and false acceptance rate (FAR).

Authentication terminology and what it means



Why risk it?

Data loss accounts for billions of dollars in losses every year, as well as potential damage to a company’s reputation. As the Verizon 2017 Data Breach Investigations Report (DBIR) states, "81 percent of hacking-related breaches leveraged either stolen and/or weak passwords."


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.
