Rob Clegg: Advantages of Biometric Security Systems

Biometric Security Systems

Welcome to the Robe Clegg blog. In the world of information technology, the term “biometrics” (also referred to as “biometric authentication”)  is the automated method of recognizing a person based on their unique physiological or behavioral traits. It is also viewed to be at the cutting edge of security technology which remains a topic high on many governments' agendas - with ID cards, visas, passport, and border controls. Lets us look at some of the key benefits associated with this growing component of multifactor authentication.

One key advantage of a biometric verification system is convenience.  Once the biometric test is activated, all fingerprints, iris and facial recognition are done - and employees are good to go. It is even convenient to log the data and audit it accordingly.

According to Rob Clegg, one major advantage of biometric verification is the ability to scale. These systems are highly flexible, and can easily accept additional employee's data. This means security grows as the firm scales.

When there’s accurate information about entry and exit, it exceeds the responsibility of the firm. In the event of any unfortunate events, there is better proof of confirmation backed by data. The data is also easy to configure, analyzed and reported as necessary.

Biometrics is rapidly becoming a key piece of the security infrastructure and multifactor authentication – providing quick and easy verification, audit logs, and analysis.  These systems are proving critical as the industry continues to scale and become more complex – and we should expect even bigger things in the years ahead.
