Server-Based Biometrics Panel Discussion
Jim Sullivan, BIO-key SVP Strategy & Business Development, will be a featured speaker during a Knowledge Exchange series discussing the topic: 'Server-based biometrics - Were we too quick to demonize?' exploring the conflict enterprises face when considering the deployment of server based biometrics. While most enterprises today recognize the reliability and authentication benefits of biometrics, many falsely believe that device-based biometrics are the only biometric architecture for application authentication. This panel will discuss the realities of the nomadic nature of many enterprise workforces in retail operations, call centers, healthcare, etc. that create authentication challenges more appropriately addressed by server-based biometrics. The panel takes place Wednesday, May 2nd at 9:35 am.
