Biometrics is the measurement and statistical analysis of a person’s physical and behavioral characteristics
Biometric technology is able to recognize a person on the basis of the unique features of their face, fingerprint, signature, DNA or iris pattern and then impart a secure and convenient method for authentication purposes. Verification and identification are the two ways in which an individual’s identity can be determined using biometric technology.
Verification confirms that a person is indeed who they claim to be and performs a one-to-one comparison of the individual’s fingerprint sample with a stored reference template. Identification, on the other hand, performs a one-to-many comparison to confirm an individual’s identity. The identification process compares the individual’s fingerprint sample against all the reference templates stored on file. An individual is positively identified if the individual’s fingerprint image matches any of the stored templates
Fingerprint recognition is an ideal biometric technology for both large and small scale government projects. Fingerprint biometrics offers a flexible, scalable and accurate digital identification solution for various government applications such as border control, national identification cards, voter registration and passports. Fingerprint identification solutions are highly accurate and fast thereby facilitating a smooth and efficient
GSL offers the most recent scope of biometric time and attendance terminals from expanding prevalent face recognition, market leading fingerprint devices and the ever solid hand geometry readers. In the event that you feel your workforce would suit more conventional nearness card based advances then we offer those as well.Organizations can eliminate employee time theft and reduce payroll inflation by incorporating fingerprint biometrics in their time and attendance systems. Automated recording of employee’s check-in and check-out times is possible with a fingerprint attendance system. The employee needs to be actually present to clock-in at work and thus a fingerprint system eliminates the possibility of buddy punching. Fingerprint time and attendance systems increases employee productivity and encourage accountability by creating a concrete audit trail of employee transactions. Time spent in manual reconciliation of attendance records is saved and resources can be spent on other productive tasks. It eliminates the expenses associated with producing plastic ID cards and replacement or resetting of forgotten passwords and lost cards.
Banks gain a substantial benefit by implementing fingerprint biometrics. Banks and other financial institutions need to protect customer financial data and provide safe and easy transaction for customers. Customers can easily access services at bank branches with a fingerprint swipe and it also links each transaction to the customer. Only authorized employees can gain access to sensitive information using their fingerprint and it also creates a concrete audit trail of each transactions. A fingerprint biometric system eliminates insider fraud and encourages accountability and government compliance. Fingerprint authentication provides an irrefutable proof of employee and customer transactions and helps to save the millions of dollars that are lost each year in financial frauds.
Fingerprints are almost impossible to steal, forget, lose or compromise and thus fingerprint technology provides a greater degree of security and convenience as compared to other traditional authentication mechanisms. They can also be used in combination with other authentication mechanisms to provide enhanced security for a critical resource
Enterprise wide areas that require physical or logical access solutions can be secured with fingerprint biometrics. Fingerprint authentication is a strong and more reliable alternative to user name and password combinations that are required for logging into user’s workstations and desktop applications. Fingerprint devices can also be utilized to control physical access to buildings, safes and restricted areas within the organization.
When individuals are enrolled into the biometric system, only a digital representation of the fingerprint is stored as a template. The actual fingerprint is never stored or transmitted across the network that helps to maintain individual’s privacy. Users are initially enrolled into the system by capturing an image of their fingerprint with a fingerprint scanner
