Have you ever thought of deploying biometrics, but are not sure about its advantages and disadvantages? Biometric solutions include the most cutting-edge technologies that use unique attributes for identification and verification. These human attributes such as fingerprint, finger vein, and iris cannot be copied, manipulated or forged, so their correct usage creates an unbreakable access wall. As traditional individual authentication methods are gradually becoming obsolete, biometric authentication is taking over where passwords or ID card-based authentication used to be due to numerous advantages.
