Chatsworth, CA (PRWEB) April 7, 2005
Omni Identity, Inc. and Telesis Community Credit Union announced today that they have deployed fingerprint recognition systems to enhance employee productivity and network security on all desktops throughout the $480 Million asset credit union. The installation provided an added layer of security for network, application, and website logons by leveraging tight integration with MicrosoftÂ® Active Directory. The anticipated result is a decrease in authentication administration costs by taking PINs and passwords out of the hands of end-users.
ÂFingerprint recognition vastly improves network authentication while reducing the expense and productivity problems associated with lost or forgotten passwords because people donÂt have to remember them any longer,Â said Phillip Fowler, Vice President of Information Technology for Telesis. ÂUnlocking and resetting passwords have been virtually eliminated, so our time has been re-directed to more productive effortsÂ added Frank Richter, Network Administrator for Telesis.
OmniÂs knowledge and experience with a wide range of available authentication technologies was critical in helping Telesis use biometrics to complement strategic objectives. ÂAs security becomes more of a concern to financial institutions and consumers alike, progressive authentication methods, like fingerprint recognition, will soon appear at the retail banking level. Telesis is helping lead the way within the credit union community,Â said Eric Stotz, Founder of Omni Identity. ÂWith our solutions, users can now log-on and be authenticated to any network, application, website or even at the teller line or POS with a simple and secure touch of a finger.Â
ÂThe deployment with Telesis caps a thriving 12-month period for Omni Identity marked by engagements with industry leaders around the country,Â said Stotz. ÂIt is a signal that biometrics are accepted as a core authentication solution for enterprises of all shapes and sizes.Â
