Marc Strackx spoke about biometrics and security during the International Risk Congress in Brussel in relation to countering Financial Economic Crime. In today’s digitally enabled world, where cybercrime, theft and fraud are on the rise, organizations require the most secure, accurate, and reliable identity authentication methods for data access, physical access, and general security. System’s security has become a challenge with attacks on all fronts – not only externally by outsiders but internally by insider manipulation. The implementation of technological safeguards is, therefore, more vital than ever, but with the dramatic increase in networks, devices, connections, and applications this has become highly complex.
For many, biometric security is the answer – it’s platform technology capable of serving and supporting all industries. For several years, organizations worldwide have been experimenting with a number of biometric authentication solutions, ranging from eye, face and fingerprint, to signature and voice recognition, all of which offer a greater level of security than traditional passwords.
The implementation of a biometric identity and access management solution capable of detecting the person behind the password, is a major step towards greater system security. However, working out which is the right biometric technology to implement is dependent on the use case.
At Alfa-Zet Systems our consultants will take you through all the options and advise which technology is the most suitable for which deployment. In partnership with Fujitsu and DNCS, we provide a wide-ranging biometric technology portfolio that includes face, voice, iris, fingerprint and palm vein solutions that can be tailored to specific use cases such as mobility and physical access.
PalmSecure Palm Vein Pattern Recognition Technology
PalmSecure is a premium biometric authentication technology based on palm vein pattern recognition and has been shown to be by far the most accurate biometric authentication solution currently available on the market.
PalmSecure provides high levels of accuracy, and is easy to implement and use – a non-intrusive and contactless reader device ensures virtually no physiological user restrictions. It’s a leading-edge authentication system, that uses biometric technology to authenticate a user’s identity based on palm vein patterns. As veins are internal and have a wealth of differentiating features, attempts to forge an identity are extremely difficult, thereby enabling a higher level of security.
