Best Practice: Selecting the right biometric technology for your application
South Africa is a world leader in the application of biometrics within both the public and private sector. Extensive local experience of implementing and managing biometric solutions means that SA’s adoption of biometrics is significantly, and perhaps surprisingly, more advanced than in Europe or America. As the use of biometric technology in SA becomes increasingly more widespread, there is therefore substantial commercial benefit in leveraging local knowledge in terms of selecting the right biometric to use for your application. Gary Jones, MD of the Ideco Biometric Security Solutions Group, discusses understanding how you can overcome challenges in difficult applications; and why certain biometrics are more effective than others.
