Tampa-based Realtime North America is using biometric technology to help companies and government agencies tighten their computer security, reports TBO.com.
In addition to the recognition software, a recommended special mouse and keyboard scans in the user's fingerprint to get a match. The technology then restricts the logon or the level of security clearance for various users.
The bioLock system, which runs about $100,000 installed, allows the computer administrator to assign by terminal who has access to the information. They then have "a recorded database, which shows who has access to data, when they accessed it, for how long and for what purpose."
