cloudABIS cloud biometric identification management

Attending the 2017 connect:ID conference? Stop by and see CloudABIS in Booth #309.

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!

Biometrics in Movies Sci-Fi Security (Infographic)

Do you remember the first time you saw biometric technology? Was it in an early “Star Trek” episode or maybe in “2001: A Space Odyssey?” Have you noticed the biometrics used in recent movies like “Dredd,” “District 9,” or “Ex Machina?”

Biometrics have long been used in science fiction movies to portray a futuristic world of advanced technology. From retina scans to voice identification and facial recognition, we’ve seen these technologies on the big screen for more than 50 years.

Are Cloud Applications The Future of Biometric Identification Management?

Cloud computing is the future of our digital world. It is proven to be a more affordable and convenient solution to store and secure data. Biometric identification management technology utilizes cloud computing, rendering it more reliable and fast, freeing up resources, and creating once unforeseen efficiencies to help increase utility and security.

There are reasons behind the increasing popularity of cloud applications in biometric identification management. These include:

  • Multimodal biometrics (a combination of fingerprint, palm vein, finger vein, iris, palm print, DNA, voice, and facial) are now widely adopted by governments, fintech, and private companies. Multimodal biometric deployments generate a lot of data which is expensive to store, risky to manage, and time consuming. Consequently, the cloud is an ideal candidate for multimodal biometric deployments.
  • Adopting a cloud biometric identification system enables you to be free of employing an in-house team to manage the system. It will not only save money but also help you to concentrate on your core business and competencies.
  • Considering smart spaces, access control applications, mobile applications, and ambient intelligence environments, cloud based biometric solutions provides you excellent deployment flexibilities.
  • In terms of speed, cloud computing is far superior to in-house, traditional biometric technology hosting environments. It also speeds up the workforce by reducing the system complexity of an in-house team.
  • You have the luxury of parallel processing capabilities in cloud applications where several people can work with the same data without any issues.
  • Cloud applications reduce the cost of buying infrastructure including hardware which is a huge burden to many startup companies.

Understanding that cloud applications are the future of cloud computing, you can let us know your opinion by voting in our latest poll on Twitter entitled “Cloud applications are the future of biometric identification management”.

The Different Ways Your Staff May Be Stealing Time and What You Can Do About It

stop employee time theft with biometric identification

Biometric identification has proven to help stop employee time theft and increase profits.

Time theft can occur in your business when you pay an employee(s) for work they either have not done, or you pay them for time when they were not on the premises. With the growing remote and mobile workforce, time theft has become a much bigger issue for employers. In fact, it has become so big, millions of dollars are being lost every year in productivity. Some other businesses are using factoring invoice companies to pay employees who have cheated the system. This puts a dent in cash flow by paying for work that was not completed.

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.

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.
