Precise Biometrics for iPhone
© 2012 Precise Biometrics
With an increasingly mobile workforce, remote login security is a growing concern. Biometrics are a way to authenticate user identities to ensure restricted information remains confidential. One biometrics company, Precise Biometrics, has created a biometric security product for iPhones and iPad tablets in the form of a specialized casing that includes an embedded fingerprint scanner and smart card reader. This product line, called Tactivo, is targeted at government agencies, enterprises, and healthcare professionals requiring restricted access to sensitive information.
When used in combination with Precise Biometrics apps, like BioSecrets, the Tactivo product offers different security verification options for individual business needs. It can eliminate the need for password management and administration, secure mobile access to VPN, and faster credential verification.
The notion of BYOD (bring your own device) is a growing trend in corporations in particular, making it more crucial than ever to have measures in place to ensure that company data is protected. Biometric technologies go beyond the shallow protection offered by passwords and PINs, using unique biological identifiers to make sure only verified employees are granted access to corporate networks.
