With workplaces becoming more vulnerable to corporate espionage, human resources departments around the world are demanding more stringent security measures. Parallel to this, engineers that specialize in developing security devices have been busy working on creating systems which help meet these demands.
Biometric systems have been able to make use of identification technology on the basis of physiological characteristics which are unique for each individual to make sure that only authorized personnel is given access to areas and departments within any office building, thus ensuring maximum security at the workplace.
Biometric systems quintessentially use technologies such as retinal recognition, facial characteristics recognition, iris eye scan, voice recognition and even fingerprint recognitionfor effective verification and authentication.
Amongst the most common used devices in fingerprint recognition, Nitgen Fingkey Hamster II has been able to make effective use of fingerprinting recognition technology on the basis of common knowledge that no two people can have the same fingerprints. This makes fingerprint recognition far superior to voice recognition whereby, if a system chose to use voice recognition as the criteria of recognition, one may be running the risk of voice imitation.
Systems such as the Nitgen Hamster II are designed to ensure that companies are able to minimize risks with respect to identity theft of existing employees, information fraud and even vandalism after hours. The Nitgen Fingkey Hamster II integrates live finger detection technology, which enables rejection of false fingers thus adding an additional level to your security strategy.
In addition to security, fingerprint readers such as the Nitgen Hamster II also help HR departments maintain attendance records.
