Biometric identification has already become a mainstream security technology. With the help of biometric technology, airports and border control agencies have adopted paperless verification systems, mobile companies including Apple and Samsung implement fingerprint technology on their devices, top banks embrace biometric security systems to secure the data safety of their clients. It isn’t a matter of government or international organizations anymore. It becomes a part and parcel of our daily life, but are we sure that it won’t affect us and our family? Continue reading →

Fujitsu tablet with integrated PalmSecure sensor

Fujitsu’s ruggedized tablet comes with serious security – palm vein biometrics powered by an integrated PalmSecure sensor.

More and more tablets and mobile devices are ramping up security with biometrics – almost all major smartphones are now equipped with some kind of biometric sensor or scanner. Apple just shocked many by introducing face biometrics in place of their fingerprint scanner, the technology apple paid over $350 million for several years ago.

M2SYS_Palm_MobileWhen taken with an infrared camera, face recognition becomes a rock solid biometric modality. Tech giants switching from fingerprint to face now validates why M2SYS always believed in underlying hybrid biometric technology – each biometric modality works differently in different environments; there is no “one fits all” approach in biometrics. That’s why we invented a solution and platform that lets our partners plug in different forms of biometrics as their business and product matures, without the need to rewrite any code. Can you believe that someone thought of this approach many many years ago? That’s M2SYS.

Stay Informed About The Latest Advancements in Biometric Identification Technology

email newsletter for biometric identification management news and updates

Join the hundreds of existing subscribers to our email newsletter and stay on top of the latest news and trends in biometric identification management technology.

Advancements in biometric identification management technology are moving so fast, it’s tough to predict just how much it will potentially change the world we live in. Biometrics are fundamentally changing identification management in a host of industries and governmental entities. There is no question that biometrics now touch virtually every  corner of the world to improve security, but what is perhaps most fascinating is the benefits biometrics have established that were once unforeseen which include establishing parity in societies that have traditionally lacked class equity.

Traditional identification technologies (passwords, PINs, plastic ID cards) are no longer reliable and quickly being supplanted with biometrics. For example, the increased focus on improving internet security to fight cybercrime has opened the door for the use of biometrics as a stand-alone solution, or as part of a multi-factor authentication strategy.

Is Your Home Security System Smart or Dumb?

using biometrics to secure your home

Home security has rapidly evolved beyond padlocks and deadbolts. Learn more about new technologies now available to better secure your place of residence.

Remember the times, when you used to buy those giant locks with massive keys to secure your houses? Or do you know how that was replaced by one central door key, which was too big to be kept inside your pocket? It’s true that time flies, but the other side is also true that it flies with a lot of changes. Today, security systems have become less complex and more technology based.

With huge technological advancements in recent years, life has become simpler and less of a painstaking journey. One of the best advancements is the ease in security systems provided by the invention of biometrics. This has become bliss for many businessmen and professionals cautious about their belongings.

Back in the early days of the Internet, website content management was a bit more complicated. If you weren’t proficient in making modifications to Hypertext Markup Language (HTML), chances are that you hired a professional who used a platform like Dreamweaver to upload content changes via file transfer protocol (FTP). The process tended to be cumbersome and often required the services of a professional which meant that you were at the mercy of their availability. Continue reading →

Is Biometric Technology The “Go To” Solution To Prevent Bank Fraud?

Introduction

Data breaches in banking have become commonplace all over the world. Most banks and financial institutions continue to rely on historical password based security systems which are increasingly susceptible to cyber breaches and no longer able to reliably secure data or to prevent bank fraud.

Continuous data breaches in the banking industry clearly demonstrates how antiquated existing identification security is, and something has to change. Due to the challenges that passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs) and physical ID cards present, the banking industry is searching for new technologies which can provide stronger data protection from hackers and they are now considering biometric solutions to solve the problem.

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.
