The Internet is having an identity crisis. Long regarded as a powerful tool for cost reduction and service enhancement, the Internet is falling short of its

biometric authentication and password fortification  are prone. Strong, dynamic biometric authentication systems, however, remain expensive and are further diminished by the requirement for a hardware device to take the required measurements at every access point. For example, if the user has a dynamic signature tablet for authentication on their office desktop, they will need another similar device at home to achieve the same level of security when working from home, effectively doubling the cost of the solution. Furthermore, until such devices are more

Time Tracking and Attendance Primer: Beyond the Clock


Punch clocks, clock card machines, Bundy clocks, time recorders. Most organizations are opting for newer methods to track their employees’ time and attendance. Today’s time tracking technology is not just about capturing hours—it’s about where those hours are allocated and how productive they are. TEC analyst Sherry Fox reviews some of the key features of current time tracking software and highlights some popular vendors.

These include: Biometric Time Clocks —Rather than using a key, code, or chip to identify the user, these clocks rely on a unique attribute of the user (such as a handprint, fingerprint, face, iris, or retina). The user will have their attribute scanned into the system. Biometric readers are often used in conjunction with an access control system, granting the user access to a building, while at the same time, clocking them in for work and recording the time and date.
