Digitalization and the use of computers at work are rampant today. Right from attendance and payroll to security systems, we work in automated offices. We use personal computers or laptops at our workstations for transactions, data storage, processing and analysis. With digitalization comes the concern for safety against hacking and cybernetic impersonation. Our machines contain a large volume of critical information, which we require to safeguard every time we leave our workstations.
A great solution to address the concerns of safety within the umbrella of digitalization and automation is the use of biometric devices. This method reduces the risks of hacking and cybernetic impersonation. Biometric systems may use any option from face, iris or fingerprint recognition systems for security enforcement. Fingerprint scanning is the most preferred of these methods as it is feasible both in terms of overheads and implementation. USB fingerprint scanners are the most popular biometric device.
From the currently available options, the Suprema BioMini USB Fingerprint Scanner is great for use in a desktop and networking environment and hence the best fit for office security systems. It has a 500dpi optical fingerprint sensor and is compatible with Windows 98, Me, 2000, XP, Vista and 7, making it ideal for workstation security. The Suprema Biomini also supports Linux (Debian, Fedora, Ubuntu) with Kernel 2.6.1 along with multiple programming languages, using which it can be easily customized.
The Suprema BioMini uses one of the world’s best fingerprint algorithms. It has 1:100,000 per second matching speed, which brings it at par with the fastest of fingerprint scanners. The high resolution images and high-speed USB 2.0 connectivity makes Suprema Biomini USB fingerprint scanner perfect for any identification, authentication, verification and scanning applications.
