Leveraging on Biometrics To Improve Identity Verification

January 12, 2021
Biometric identity verification and authentication systems are becoming increasingly popular as a reliable security solution that is easily adopted across various industries. We look at 3 solutions powered by biometric verification to improve security and convenience in our latest article.

As countries begin to administer coronavirus vaccines, biometric identification can help verify those who have already gotten tested for the virus and are vaccinated.

Besides identifying individuals who have been vaccinated with biometric verification, businesses and government organizations use biometric solutions to improve security by matching digital identity against their physical documents, saved securely in their servers.

The global biometric system market is expected to grow from USD 33.0 billion in 2019 to around USD 65 billion by 2024' according to a report by MarketsandMarkets. These systems measure a person's unique characteristics, such as voice pattern, the iris or retina pattern of the eye, or even facial recognition. This article looks at 3 solutions powered by biometric verification to improve security and convenience.

COVID-19 Testing & Vaccination Verification

The International Air Transport Association (IATA) has recently launched the IATA Travel Pass Mobile App, which helps travelers quickly and securely manage their travel according to any government requirements for COVID-19 testing or vaccine information.

With no central database storing the information, the app stores encrypted data such as the verified test or vaccination results locally on the passenger’s mobile device. IATA Travel Pass is also built on the highest standards of data protection laws, including the General Data Protection Regulation (EU GDPR).From taking a smartphone selfie and completing a liveness test to taking a picture of the passport details and matching the passport data using biometric systems for identity verification, the IATA Travel Pass App functions similarly to GTRIIP’s contactless identity verification solutions.

Seamless & Hassle-Free Verification

As remote and hybrid working styles become increasingly popular, it can be challenging to keep track of employees and visitors entering and exiting the office. Instead of filling up long and tedious forms at the reception desk, smart solutions such as GTRIIP offer a seamless, hassle-free, and secure experience. GTRIIP provides a quick and secure Visitor Management Solution at offices, leveraging facial recognition technology to authenticate end-users’ identity. These biometric identity verification systems for offices help streamline repetitive administrative tasks, which frees up time for employees to handle other tasks productively.

The Visitor Management Solution, paired with GTRIIP’s Smart Access Management for offices, provides digital keys to pre-verified employees and tenants before they arrive at your property.

GTRIIP’s office mobile access technology helps offices and co-working spaces seamlessly integrate physical access controls and reduce potential administrative hassles at different facilities.

Banking Authentication to Complete a Transaction Banking on the increasingly AI-powered workforce, banks globally are using biometrics to verify digital and remote transactions. Using biometric banking technologies, banks can combat fraud and increase transaction security by improving customer and employee identity verification.

There is, however, a growing concern amongst users about the increase in bank fraud and identity theft throughout banking systems. This has led to a rise in demand for a more secure method of identifying customers.

Consequently, an increasing number of customers prefer banks with biometric authentication systems already in place, spurring banks to research the technology and further enhance their offering.

Conclusion

Biometric identity verification and authentication systems are becoming increasingly popular as a reliable security solution that is easily adopted across various industries. Without any doubt, it has proven that it can create and sustain a well-rounded ecosystem that saves businesses time, effort, and resources while keeping their premises secure.

While passwords and smart cards are easy targets for forging identities and security breaches, biometric data cannot be shared or manipulated because it leaves a clear audit trail of perpetrators. Therefore there is a strong belief that as enterprises move forward in this challenging COVID-19 environment, biometric technology will continue to grow and be used in even more areas in our lives than before.
