Cross Match unveils WEBS
Cross Match Technologies
has launched a new web-based biometric software application called WEBS. The application addresses the common concerns of security, privacy, and total cost of ownership associated with biometric implementations.
“WEBS provides a completely web-based approach to the collection and management of biometric enrolment data that is both secure and scalable,” says John Bagocius, product manager, Cross Match. “The application resides on a central server and is accessed over the network through a secure HTTPS browser connection, providing an effective and efficient way to centralise sensitive enrolment data. The architecture enables users to remotely enrol, administer, and maintain from a single touch-point; saving time, improving productivity, and reducing cost.”
Cross Match says whether WEBS is deployed within a PC workstation or thin client terminal environment, or with a network appliance such as the Cross Match Guardian IP, Personally Identifiable Information (PII) is never stored locally. “This approach, leveraging the WEBS application, further improves security and enhances enrolee privacy as PII only resides within the hosted WEBS application server and not at the remote enrolment sites,” says Bagocius.
According to the company WEBS is particularly attractive for customers managing disperse enrolment sites or who are seeking to easily and cost effectively scale their biometric operations and simplify IT management and maintenance.
