More organizations adopting biometric single sign-on
The rising instances of data security breaches due to stolen or lost passwords affirm that passwords are the weakest link in an organization’s information security system. Fingerprint single sign-on enables users to securely access computers, databases or applications using their fingerprint.
Fingerprint single sign-on is a biometric identity management system that replaces passwords, PINs or token with stronger fingerprint authentication. It provides highly secured access to files and folders by utilizing PKI encryption technology and Windows in-built CryptoAPI architecture. It brings a lot of flexibility to enterprise-wide identity management by seamless integration with Active Directory.
Biometrics single sign-on has support for a wide variety of enterprise level applications (terminal emulators, SAP, Oracle, Chrome, IE, Firefox, ERP, CRM) and includes event logging for most user operations such as authentication, encryption etc. Many organizations adopt biometric single sign-on solutions to prevent the illegal access of employee passwords, ensure restricted access and to prevent financial losses due to weak passwords.
