|Plugin Info: Biometric Fingerprint Reader|
|Last Updated:||February 2011|
The Biometric Fingerprint Reader plug-in allows for fast identification and secure verification capabilities that enable your FileMaker Pro scripts to recognize individual users without requiring passwords or card swipes. This technology can be used to recognize and authenticate individuals based on who they are, instead of what they know (passwords or PINs) or what they possess (keys or swipe cards). This can be used in a variety of ways – from sign-on and confirmation of important actions to special approvals by other users – to help combat fraud and boost customer efficiency.
Common uses of biometric authentication in software solutions:
- Accountability – Fingerprints can link actions to specific individuals – deterring inappropriate behavior and eliminating fraudulent activity.
- Workforce Management – Fingerprints provide accurate time and attendance tracking, reduce waste and ensure accuracy.
- Loss Prevention – Supervisors’ fingerprints can be required for special actions, facilitating adherence to corporate policies.
- Compliance – Fingerprints can be used to provide an audit trail identifying who came in contact with sensitive data.
