Join us in Washington, D.C. for the annual connect:ID conference from May 1 – 3 at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. Exhibiting as CloudABIS, the M2SYS team will be on hand to offer a demonstration of our cloud-based biometric matching system designed to remove the friction from developing and deploying a reliable, scalable biometric identity management solution.

Exhibit attendees can stop by Booth #309 at connect:ID and learn more about our cloud based framework, matching system, and biometric device integration which are designed to allow end users the opportunity to quickly develop and deploy a biometric identity management solution to fit their own, unique needs. On display at the conference will be:

  • CloudApper™ – Revolutionary, dynamic cloud application framework
  • CloudABIS™ – A scalable, cloud-based, biometric-as-a-service (BaaS) matching system
  • CloudScnr™ – Windows and Web application biometric device integration with web service
    cloud biometric as a service

Our next-generation cloud software solutions allow you to buy ANY biometric device, build a business layer app with CloudApper, connect to a fast, accurate BaaS matching system with CloudABIS, and use CloudScnr for fast and easy biometric hardware device integration. Our goal is to eliminate the complexities of licensing and integration and simplify the process of building a custom biometric identification application designed to address whatever unique needs and challenges you may have.

CloudABIS will be exhibiting in Booth #309 at the 2017 connect:ID conference in Washington, D.C.

Stop by Booth #309 at next week’s connect:ID conference and see our cloud-based biometric identification management solutions, learn about our featured partners and customers, or just pop in to say hello and drop a business card off for a chance to win a free Amazon Echo and at the end of the show (winner will be announced post conference here on the blog).

We hope to see you next week at connect:ID! What are you looking forward to seeing the most at connect:ID? Drop a comment below and let us know!

How Biometrics Will Transform the World of IT Security

The following gust post on biometrics increasing IT security was submitted by James Daniels.

It is a fact that passwords can no longer provide sufficient security for your data. The problem with the use of passwords and usernames for security is that they can easily be bypassed by hackers and rogue employees. Due to these obvious flaws related to use of passwords as security measures, biometrics are fast becoming the norm when trying to guard access to critical data. Here are some of the reasons why biometrics are the future of data security.

How Law Enforcement Agencies are Using Biometrics

How Law Enforcement Agencies are Using Biometrics

Biometric identification management technology is so efficient for security purposes that law enforcement agencies around the world are embracing it with open arms. They strategically use either a physiological modality, a behavioral modality or a combination of both — the most common modalities in use are fingerprints, iris and facial recognition, gait, and voice recognition. The rapid implementation of biometrics has sparked a revolution within the global law enforcement and security industry.

The following guest post on biometric technology was submitted by James Daniels.

The utilisation of biometric technology to identify individuals has been in use for years all over the world. As technology continues to advance, biometric technology is also advancing.
Biometric technology refers to the ability to identify an individual based on their unique physical characteristic, behaviors and patterns. Most often biometrics can identify an individual through their fingerprints, the physical structure and characteristics of their face, thru the utilisation of iris and retina scans, and more.

What the Biometrics Boom Means for Mobile Device Security

biometrics is increasing mobile device security

Mobile security is undergoing fundamental changes with the introduction of biometrics on smart devices.

The following guest post on biometrics for mobile device security was submitted by James Daniels.

The mobile biometrics market is booming. The global biometrics system market is projected grow at a compound annual growth rate of 16.79 percent between 2016 and 2022, expanding from $10.74 billion to $32.73 billion. Demand fueling this growth will be led by the financial sector, the healthcare industry, government initiatives and law enforcement. Fingerprint recognition is currently the most popular biometric technology, finding its most widespread application in the travel and immigration sector, but other technologies such as facial and voice recognition are expected increasingly gain currency as well. Here’s a closer look at the biometrics boom and what it means for your mobile device security and lifestyle.

Why is Iris Recognition Biometrics Becoming Dominant?

Iris recognition is a biometric modality which captures a photo of the eye pattern, converts the photo to a binary template and then saves the data to a server for future matching. Iris cameras are used to recognize an individual’s unique identity by analyzing the random, unique patterns which visibly appear inside their eye from a certain distance. It utilizes multiple technologies including optics, statistical conclusions, pattern recognition, and computer vision.

Iris recognition biometrics is widely considered to be the most accurate biometric modality among those currently available in the market. A recent Twitter poll we conducted asked what the public feels is the most reliable biometric modality and results indicated that most people trust the reliability and accuracy of iris recognition technology over any other biometric alternative.

How Body Guards Use Biometric Technology on the Job

biometric technology for bodyguards

What are some of the most common uses of biometric technology by bodyguards?

The following guest post on the use of biometric technology by body guards was submitted by Jason Mueller.

The idea for biometric scanners and biometric technology has been around for decades and people have been recording fingerprints for more than a century, but this technology has advanced dramatically in the past 20 years along with the advent of computers and more capable electronics. Today biometrics are used for computer access, to screen employees, to secure buildings and for many other purposes. They’re highly reliable, and cost-effective to use. Even personal body guards are putting biometric technology to use during their jobs.

5 Factors to Consider in Choosing the Best Biometric Modality

The success of a biometric system often depends on choosing the right biometric modality, but it isn’t easy. Careful research that includes rigorous comparisons of modality strengths and weaknesses is an important element to help select the right hardware. Factors to consider in the comparison may include: specifications, convenience, usability, acceptability, effectiveness, and budget.

Which is The Most Reliable Biometric Modality?

We recently conducted a Twitter poll: “What is considered to be the most accurate biometric modality among the following options?

We received a large number of responses from our community reflecting the following results:

  • 58% chose iris recognition
  • 32% chose fingerprint
  • Palm vein and facial recognition both got 5% of the votes

It’s interesting that people immediately gravitate towards iris recognition as the most accurate biometric than other modalities, with only fingerprint as a distant second. What is the reason behind the result?
