CPNI Certified Fingerprint Scanner
In the technology based society we live in today, traditional authentication methods are gradually becoming obsolete. Biometric readers are becoming more widely used, taking over the need for passwords or ID card authentication due to the numerous advantages this has.
Let’s examine the advantages within this new technology. Biometrics focuses on ‘who you are’ as opposed to ID cards or passwords that are ‘what you have’ or ‘what you know’. Giving your construction site the protection it deserves.
Biometric identification systems establish a concrete audit trail to help create accountability. Each and every action or transaction will be recorded and this is clearly documented to reduce the possibility of misuse or fraud.
Biometric technology makes individual authentication convenient without the need to carry around ID cards or remember passwords. Passwords can be forgotten or easily guessed, and ID cards can be lost or stolen.
Biometric authentication offers enhanced security, accountability and a reduction in misuse. The ROI is much higher with biometric systems, compared with tradition forms of authentication.
The main benefit of Biometrics is the uniqueness in that people possess unique physiological features and everyone’s fingerprint is unique, these cant be as easily replicated as ID cards or password-style authentication.
Occasionally the ability to accurately identify someone can change through age, environment, age or skin integrity related issues, but through using multimodal biometric identification, these factors can be eliminated.
Easy Setup and Install
Modern biometric identification systems are comprised of hardware and software that are easy to setup and install. This reduces the need for intensive training and ongoing management costs. Biometric technology can also save other costs such as the issuance of ID cards, and replacing lost or damaged cards.
Biometric readers also eliminate the costs and IT resource draining by eliminating the need to reset passwords or combat a possible security breach from a stolen password.
