Ways to Prevent security breaches with facial recognition technology
How do employees gain access to your organization? Do you Use a pen and paper-based system to keep track of who comes into work and when? Does each person have a timecard they need to punch in and out? None of these methods are foolproof. Attendance fraud is a reality for most companies, whether we like it or not. Getting a colleague to punch in for you or coercing the person-in-charge of a physical register to put in an earlier time, we’ve experienced it all.
Cards Could Cost Your Company
Attendance fraud might just be the tip of the iceberg. What about employees who misplace their timecard? There are multiple repercussions of that. For one, the card might land in the hands of an unauthorized person, who can then gain easy entry into your premises. A security breach could also occur in the form of sensitive employee data that might have been present on the card. Then there’s the problem of the employee reporting the loss to the relevant department and waiting for a replacement. How do they clock into work till the card is replaced?
Also, what happens when an employee leaves? The best practice is to, of course, have the departing employee deposit their card on their last day at work. But that doesn’t always happen. Some forget while some others might knowingly hang on to the card. Again, this raises a security issue.
For an organization with multiple employees across different locations, keeping track of all physical forms of marking attendance could not only be extremely tedious, but it could also be full of loopholes and vulnerability to human error.
The need of the hour is for a technology-based solution for employee attendance checks. ZKTeco has worked with various types and sizes of businesses, given that we constantly strive to add new features and functionalities to our products and solutions.
Facial Recognition technology has come to the Rescue
Everything can be stolen, except your biometrics, right? Just like fingerprints are unique to each person, your face is unique to you as well. And, unless you’re living in one of the early Mission Impossible movies, your face cannot be replicated. So, face recognition devices such as Proface, Speedface, FaceDepot could close the loopholes inherent in any RFID-based card systems.
Face recognition software uses various characteristics of each face, including facial structures, such as length of the jawline, depth of the eye sockets, the shape of the cheekbones and more, to determine a match. So, accuracy levels are very high.
One Technology, Many Advantages
Facial recognition technology completely eliminates the risk of human error or fraud, which is quite prevalent when security guards do manual identification.
So, while you brand your company as one that is ahead of its times in adopting the latest innovations, it also gives you the opportunity to ensure the highest levels of security within your premises.
