Using biometrics is the method of recognizing specific physiological and behavioral traits in humans such as their retinas, scent, fingerprints, voice, hand, iris recognition and their gait, among others.
A biometric can operate as a one to one comparison of individuals because of a stored template which is used to verify that unique individual’s biometrics. It can be done by using a smart card, ID number or by his username. Just as when the police find a fingerprint at a crime scene and then run it through a data base of other fingerprints, if there is no other fingerprint on the system to compare it with, then a comparison cannot be made.
It is the same with making a comparison of a voiceprint or other biometric verification when it is compared to others stored in a database. The very first time someone uses the biometric system is actually their personal enrollment into a system which creates their unique template. This template with their information then becomes stored in a secure place. Businesses are using voice biometrics as a solution to their business customers support and security which is creating many satisfied customers due to its ease of use and the security it creates for them.
Once they receive their initial voice print by registering their voice biometric functionality, their voiceprint can be used instead of forgetting pin numbers and having to create a new one, they will just call in and speak their account number. Very interesting and quite a benchmark for deterring fraud along with identity theft, while boosting the productivity of every business that decides to go on board and use this new advance in technology.
Security is so important in today’s world. It is in every business owner’s thoughts wondering how much more he can do to ensure his business is secure. That his customer’s, his own, and his employee’s important personal data is safe and secure. Biometrics, including voice recognition and other methods of verification are being used now by many businesses so that customers can do their personal business, many times by themselves, just by speaking their ID number into the telephone. For a business, this helps to save money because a live agent no longer has to assist the customer in making transactions.
