10 Reasons Why ievo™ Biometrics Effectively Secure your Workplace
Just recently we have secured our ievo™ head office with our biometric reader. It has sparked debates within the office as to whether more businesses should implement fingerprint access into their buildings.If you’re worried about the security of your respective staff, your building, or perhaps the goods or data which can be inside your workplace, then you definitely may be thinking about increasing or updating your workplace security. Biometrics can be used to ensure that merely the right individuals have usage of the buildings and data you would like them to gain access to. Here’s what you must know (the ins and outs of different biometrics)1. Using fingerprints for identification and recognition is the oldest use of biometrics. Nowadays, even laptops and USB pen drives can be found with fingerprint readers, so that data is still secure, if your laptop is stolen, the individual will not be granted access. Saying that, it is perhaps a good idea to invest in this, a good quality biometric (if ievo™ made them, they would probably be very reliable! Try a multi spectral fingerprint software)2. Facial recognition technology allows faces being identified in a very crowd using CCTV. This makes identifying people in airports, shopping centres, sporting events and many more situations much easier. Okay is it unethical? Well only if the images are stored in a database that can be saved and compared over time. Perhaps not the best solution if you wish to retain employees privacy OR have unions on your trail.3. Video analytics can be used to identify and record people as and when by CCTV cameras. It’s very advantageous because the software does all the hard work of identifying people. Again perhaps a little invasive.4. Vein recognition is relatively new and hasn’t really been accepted yet as a reliable form of biometrics. It operates by scanning the hand, and comparing the image in the hand and vein structure, without a quality sensor however the system might cause some trouble. For example, if a light is shining on a sensor that is placed outside, will it work?5. Iris recognition was proposed in 1936, but it was not until the early 1990′s that algorithms for iris recognition were created. Used quite a bit in airports iris recognition is standard when going through customs. In relation to the previous point however, if sunlight is directly shining on the sensor, it is guaranteed not to function. Albeit it is still a widely accepted form of biometric. 6. Hand recognition technology is pretty new. Because hands aren’t necessarily unique, unlike the iris or possibly a fingerprint, hand recognition can’t really identify someone, however it is best used in parallel to another security system for example entering a pin.7. Biometrics do not need to be updated, body part wise. Your fingerprint does not change. Say for example you burn yourself and your print is distorted an ievo™ multi spectral reader will still recognise the print.8. Biometric access control systems are extremely reliable and easy to maintain. Again the software can be updated and if you choose correct the reader will fit in really well with your surroundings. 9. Vandal resistant. In particular the ievo™ reader is manufactured in polycarb ABS with a reinforced, toughened glass sensor meaning it is vandal resistant. 10. Biometrics access control systems are cost effective, and represent affordable, and are very versatile. No matter if you’re workplace is a large airport with a large number of employees and passengers, or perhaps a smaller company with only a handful of employees, biometrics is an effective strategy to enhance your security.However, it must be said that fingerprint access control is perhaps the most reliable form of biometric. Especially with new multi spectral imaging (MSI) technology ievo™ readers are increasingly dependable and more than qualified to secure your workplace. This is because MSI works within harsh environments and even with problem fingerprints. Not to mention that ievo™ also has a high-tech spoof detection feature that when set at a certain level no fingerprint unless live and almost 90% accurate the individual will not be gaining access. This is perfect for banks, cash offices, and server rooms etc. This is not to demean original biometrics, the false acceptance rate is still uniquely low, but that added peace of mind (especially whenever your business or home is involved) always helps!
