Smart devices, mobile phones and tablets are becoming the control hub for the myriad of connected devices and the Internet of Things (IoT) – as are bring-your-own-device (BYOD) policies in many organizations today. But this is creating unique and heightened security risks for IT professionals, such as higher exposure to data breaches, malware and compliance violations. BYOD is no longer an industry trend; it’s a fact of life for enterprise-wide operations and the IT organizations that must support them.
The ability to efficiently ensure the proper identification of both medical professionals and their patients is a significant challenge in the healthcare field. From protecting patient privacy and ensuring that healthcare services are administered to the right person, to meeting regulatory requirements and streamlining complex business processes, confirming the identity of patients and care providers is essential. Biometric authentication solutions are meeting this need while increasing operational efficiency and patient satisfaction.
