As an active biometric device, the Identix fingerprint scanner will fare better with privacy advocates than various passive biometrics devices designed for clandestine authentication purposes. Passive biometrics work without the owner's knowing participation or permission, for example stealth iris scans. With an active biometric, such as fingerprint, a user must elect to participate in the authentication or identification process, e.g. offer their finger for scanning. Product Challenges With

Wetmetrics


The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its promise because of the real and perceived threat of identity theft. Financial losses and insurance costs are mounting, as organizations struggle to protect their information perimeters and improve the strength of their authentication systems to ensure that the authorized user is present during the sign-in process. The widespread use and misuse of passwords as authentication tokens is generally cited as a cause of the accelerating erosion of user confidence and the increasing incidence of identity theft. It is generally agreed that passwords are not enough. Much has been lost, however, in the race toward person-present authentication systems. While the application of passwords is fraught with risk, the introduction of complex authentication infrastructures and cumbersome end user technology has eroded usability and increased the cost of security dramatically. This paper describes a new authentication approach that retains the simplicity and low cost of passwords, while gracefully introducing as much person-present assurance as is required by the application.

Hybrid ERP Cloud Tales


The vast majority of enterprise resource planning (ERP) system instances are still deployed on premises for obvious historical reasons; however, a growing number of customers are becoming interested and demanding cloud deployments, for only brand new modules (“edge” functionality) or even the total system’s migration to the cloud. So, what are enterprise systems vendors supposed to do?

Security Begins on Your Desktop


The documents, spreadsheets, databases and other files on the personal computers used to conduct business are corporate assets. It cost money to create them and that investment should be protected. Additionally, companies have both competitive and legal obligations to assure that such data is kept private and secure. Many companies and most people are unaware of the obligation and potential threats.

Time Tracking and Attendance Primer: Beyond the Clock


Punch clocks, clock card machines, Bundy clocks, time recorders. Most organizations are opting for newer methods to track their employees’ time and attendance. Today’s time tracking technology is not just about capturing hours—it’s about where those hours are allocated and how productive they are. TEC analyst Sherry Fox reviews some of the key features of current time tracking software and highlights some popular vendors.

These include: Biometric Time Clocks —Rather than using a key, code, or chip to identify the user, these clocks rely on a unique attribute of the user (such as a handprint, fingerprint, face, iris, or retina). The user will have their attribute scanned into the system. Biometric readers are often used in conjunction with an access control system, granting the user access to a building, while at the same time, clocking them in for work and recording the time and date.

Mobile Content and Document Management Best Practices and Decision Checklist


Every minute of every day, employees move business files onto their mobile devices so they can work at home, on the road, or at client sites. The result is the equivalent of a mobile scrum of risks, redundancies, and wasted efforts and resources. A result of the huge popularity of mobile phones and tablets and the bring your own device (BYOD) trend, the large number of mobile devices being used for work purposes and the large amount of associated content being moved with these devices means that businesses are at risk. Mobile device management provides a first defense, but it’s not enough—businesses need to lock down the content and documents with policy-based controls to decrease their level of risk and ensure comprehensive enterprise mobility management.

The Third Paradigm


Supply chain systems to date have represented the back-end of that process of servicing markets and have taken us a long way in replacing assets with information. But the fact is, building products still takes a long time. Contrastingly, markets require short response times--days. For the last few years, we have begun the process of trying to understand the unplanned event. The first and second paradigm systems deal in knowns--this is what I think I need and therefore this is what I will buy. The Third Paradigm focuses on the uncertainty elements to understand risk. This is the key. Isolate, understand and organize the chaos—creating an operational and financial model.
