While businesses strive to implement the right mix of technologies and security policies for the digital age cyber attacks are likely to become more frequent, sophisticated and capable of targeting a particular segment of population or institution. The constantly-evolving threats, cyber security, operational and legal considerations make it necessary for companies to evaluate how best to implement a business security strategy while protecting customer and business data.
Biometrics-based authentication uses an individual’s physical traits to verify his or her identity. It is like your own personal password that cannot be forgotten, lost, or stolen. Users no longer need to remember the answers to security questions, nor do they need to carry a separate single-purpose hardware token. Biometrics data is intrinsically connected to a person. It is the “What the person ‘is’ factor” (biometrics), versus a “what a person ‘has’ factor” (e.g., token or phone), versus a “What a person ‘knows’ factor” (e.g., password, PIN). It cannot be forgotten or easily compromised.
Biometrics solutions are gaining momentum in a number of domains creating security measures that are more convenient than in other approaches. Biometrics provides greater security measures for intellectual assets as well as workplace and individual information in comparison to common user authentication including passwords, user IDs, single sign-on and other traditional access management methods. Growing awareness of using biometrics for identification is expected to spur greater global commercial markets (biometrics devices and applications), and user adoption as many current applications such as banking, healthcare, immigration and border control and access to buildings require user authentication.
Fujitsu is transforming the market with its cloud-based identity platform, or Biometrics-as-a-Service, through quick deployment that lowers costs and allows customers to choose and blend modalities to develop the best use case for their particular organization and requirements, permitting rapid integration with existing business intelligence and systems.
In addition to providing a complete Biometrics as a Service back end solution the Fujitsu offering includes the ability to include complex biometrics data encryption, persistence accelerators, and seamlessly leverage the biometrics capture capabilities of each user’s mobile device, allowing it to:
Fujitsu provides pay per use, plug-n-play biometric-enabled solutions that enable support for more than 50 biometric devices while instantaneously responding to different types of modalities.
