Physical Access & Enterprise Month: The Roundup

ISC West and FindBiometrics entered into an exclusive biometrics media sponsorship in 2017. We have been attending and covering the show for over 15 years.

April is Physical Access & Enterprise Month at FindBiometrics, a four week event in which we place a featured focus on the biometrics technology locking doors and protecting businesses. Scheduled to coincide with ISC West, the largest security industry conference in the world, Physical Access & Enterprise Month was filled with live event coverage, exclusive interviews, featured articles and incentive industry commentary all culminating with the latest entry in our renowned biometrics webinar series.

With April now coming to an end, it’s time to look back on the big highlights of Physical Access & Enterprise Month:

The Biometrics Protecting Businesses

Physical Access & Enterprise Month: The RoundupIn week two of Physical Access & Enterprise Month we focused on the enterprise side of the equation, examining three ways biometrics can be deployed to protect the modern business. Taking a good look at wearables in the workplace, server rooms and cabinets, and time clocks, it’s easy to see why today’s enterprises are continuing to look to biometric security.

On week three of Physical Access & Enterprise Month we analysed the rise of contactless modalities in physical access, the benefits they bring to the space, and what their increased prominence means for biometric security at large.
