Boundary Waters Bank, a US-based financial institution, is deploying a biometric security software solution supplied by security software provider, Sig-Tec Corporation to authenticate the identity of its employees.
Sig-Tec says the bank has selected its SPD PRO software, an enterprise security solution and audit system, combined with an APC biometric fingerprint reader, to strengthen the security of its computer systems.
David Pettit at Boundary Waters Bank, said, In the banking industry, security is clearly the first priority, and biometrics is a critical component of our network security plan. Sig-Tec’s enterprise solution provided us with security software that was easy to implement and simple to integrate across our existing, complex IT infrastructure.
He added, This solution will enable us to authenticate the identity of our employees at all our locations using fingerprint data, thereby improving the overall security of our network systems and eliminating the costly overhead of password management.
