Planet Biometrics: Cutting-edge Biometric News Portal hits the Market

Share Article

Seasoned biometric industry editor, Mark Lockie, heads up a new web portal designed to revolutionize information dissemination in the fast-moving biometric industry. Alongside a strong editorial offering there is a determined focus on helping potential end users get to grips with the industry.

Planet Biometrics (, a groundbreaking news and information portal, has just launched and aims to take biometric reporting and information dissemination to a new level.

This free-to-access portal is designed to shine a light on the biometric industry, promote the industry’s expertise, give critical analysis, uncover breaking news, and, most importantly, provide educational information and advice for end users.

Readers wanting to access this content, can sign up for the site's regular e-newsletter, which will cover all the best bits of the site - from fully-researched news to interviews, feature articles and even a monthly cartoon. To do this follow this link:

Organizations may additionally take advantage of the site by promoting themselves in the new biometric company directory, by adding their presence here:

In Focus Portals

An exciting innovation on Planet Biometrics is the creation of special micro-sites that will cover specific areas of interest, incorporating relevant news, features, interviews and links.

Mark Lockie, Editor, Planet Biometrics, explains: "Whilst the site will already contain information segmented by technology, application and industry type, the idea behind our In Focus portals is to create dedicated hubs of information that will take readers to a higher level of understanding. As an example, whilst the site will have a dedicated Iris Recognition news page, an In Focus portal may cover, in detail, the more specific topic of Iris-on-the-Move. Other examples might be specific subjects such as handheld biometric readers, a specific project (such as India's Unique ID project), or coverage of a critical issue, such as standards or testing."
