Biometrics is the technology of measuring and analyzing biological data. In information technology, biometrics refers to technologies that measure and analyze human body characteristics, such as DNA, fingerprints, voice or facial patterns and hand measurements. Through these unique qualities, biometrics can be used as a form of personal authentication.
Biometrics has made tremendous strides in the past couple of years and is quickly becoming the replacement for passwords. One specific biometric solution that has become extremely accurate and affordable for most organizations is facial recognition software. Facial recognition software allows for continuous security after authentication, works in almost any situation including low light, can be overridden if the primary access is not possible, and is supported across multiple platforms. Having the capability to automatically lock a system when the person is no longer in view makes this solution perfect for regulated environments for the financial and healthcare industries. Haven Security Solutions partners with a leading provider of facial recognition software and will work with our clients to implement this solution across their entire organization.
