While biometric technology is extending across more applications than ever, access control is still one of its most important mainstays. It’s an application for which biometric identification is ideally suited, with the technology offering unique advantages in the authentication of registered individuals, and the automation of physical security systems and processes. While human guards might be nearly as good at recognizing the individuals authorized to access a building, it’s expensive and in some cases impossible to post them at every entrance, and at all hours; but contemporary biometric technology can do this work in a way that is accurate, efficient, and cost effective. And as biometric technology in general becomes more familiar to every day users, the appetite for such solutions in access control is only growing.
Given all this excitement, it’s only fitting that April is Physical Access and Enterprise Month at FindBiometrics, which will culminate in an expert webinar organized with our premier partner ISC West, one of the most important security events in the world. Acuity Market Intelligence principal Maxine Most and experts from BioConnect and Princeton Identity, two of the leading biometrics firms in the industry, will be on hand for the webinar’s panel discussion. The webcast will tackle a range of issues including major trends in identity and security, the emergence of mobile devices in the workplace, how biometrics can make businesses more efficient, and more.
The webinar is slated for 11:00 AM EDT on Wednesday, April 25th – on the heels of our live reporting from ISC West 2018 – and registration is completely free. Register now, and even if you aren’t able to watch the webinar live, you’ll be sent a link to a video recording after it’s done.
