What We Do
Identity verification has become a central necessity in societies and economies of today. This demand has been driven by social and technological changes ranging from the rise of e-commerce, cloud data storage, anti-terror policing and border control, to healthcare and the rapid rise of gaming entertainment.
Consequently, identity theft has become big business in line with the rise of the internet of things. As the “eyeball test” and “basic paper ID” cannot be used, knowledge-based authentication (KBA) was originally adopted, relying on passwords and PINs.
In attempts to further improve security protocols, two-factor authentication (2FA) was developed, which mainly relied on a second device to authenticate the user. However, passwords and pins can be cracked, forgotten, shared inadvertently or lost, making KBA and 2FA approaches no longer highly secure.
Attention, therefore, has shifted to biometrics as a way of authenticating identity using an individual’s specific and unique traits and features. Biometric technologies developed until now include face, fingerprint, iris, palm, vein and voice.
The benefits of workplace biometrics are clear enough, especially multi-modal biometrics, which will give both employers and employees more security and time and even create a better place to work.
Today, biometrics lie on the critical path of the hundreds of billions of dollars in commerce, insurance payments and premiums, averted losses from identity crime, the security of borders and national interests.
Implementing biometric technologies is not complicated, but for buyers of IT in the workplace, there is an abundance of choice. Therefore, choosing the right biometric mode for your business is important.
We understand your process and concerns as:
Accuracy is critical when choosing a modality and a vendor. You should consider error rate, false acceptance rate (FAR) and identification rate of the tech you want to use to name a few.
Spoofing is a very real problem for most biometric modes. If fraud is a concern in your case you should be considering protection such as live detection or newer, more sophisticated modes.
Accessibility - how easy is this mode/vendor to use? For example, live recognition has become a widespread form of multiple biometrics that need just a phone and no hardware.
Cost effectiveness of the mode for your business allows you to understand the return on investment (ROI) that you will receive. Be sure to evaluate cost of many vendors and ensure you're getting the best ROI.
Ease of integration - how easy is it for your development team to integrate it into your current website, app or technology? Finding out the effort and time this takes will help you make a better decision.
We are happy to lead your company through the process of finding out if our products fit in your organisation.
