A few years ago biometric identification was considered only for large scaled government projects like National ID, Passport, and law enforcement. But the growing security concern regarding identity theft and other fraudulent activities are influencing different business sectors to implement biometric identification systems as well. As a consequence, the researchers and the industry vendors are continuously working to make the biometric deployment process easier and more affordable. M2SYS Technology – being one of the leading industry vendors with a very strong portfolio is now offering a cloud-based Biometric API that works for windows, web and mobile applications simultaneously.
