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.

Biometrics as an Alternative to Passwords

Biometrics as alternative to traditional authentication methods bring convenience and eliminate the need of losing and remembering the complex passwords.

Biometrics as alternative to traditional authentication methods bring convenience and eliminate the need of losing and remembering the complex passwords.

In the era of increasing security threats, the use of antiquated passwords, personal identification numbers (PINs), and tokens to protect data and assets leaves businesses susceptible to fraud and theft. Due to the fact that hackers are seemingly running rampant online and millions of users’ identification credentials have been compromised, efforts for stronger identity protection using biometrics are gaining momentum the AFP recently reported.

Using Biometric Identification Technology to Combat Time Theft in Workforce Management

Biometric workforce management attendance systems have great potential to not only combat time theft of employees but also to increase productivity and profits.

Biometric workforce management attendance systems have great potential to not only combat time theft of employees but also to increase productivity and profits.

Time theft is widely considered as a great obstacle of employee productivity and profit maximization in the workforce management industry. Time theft at works occurs when an employee accepts pay from their employer for time they have not actually put in, and it can occur in different ways such as time clock theft, proxy attendance, buddy punching, over extended breaks, excessive personal time, and more. Biometric identification technology is now taking a permanent place in the workplace to combat time theft and increase profits in the workforce industry, for many reasons.
