measures unique characteristics to prevent unauthorised access

 

Biometric security devices measure unique characteristics of a person

such as finger prints or facial features.

 

A key advantage of biometric technology when compared to more

traditional solutions, is that it is directly linked to an individual

user and therefore not easily compromised through theft or misuse.

 

Most biometric systems are easy to use – people do not need

to remember passwords, PIN numbers or carry access control fobs.

 

If very high security is needed, it is possible to use different

biometric technologies in combination or alongside a more traditional system.
