Biomatiques Identification Solutions showcased breakthrough iris recognition technology at the Gartner Symposium/IT Expo in Goa. Biomatiques is a Surat based firm and one of the 14 companies in the world to come up with iris enabled identification solutions. Some major players in the field of Information Technology from across the country participated in the event as well.
The Gartner Symposium/IT Expo is specifically designed for CIOs & Sr. IT Executives. The conference is modeled to provide business leaders with the strategies, insights and tools to lead the next generation of IT and achieve business outcomes.
Mr. Tamaal Roy, CEO of Biomatiques on the occasion commented, “The concept of iris recognition as a method of biometric identification is not new, however in India it is still raw. Many of us are not even aware of the fact that there is a difference between iris and retina identification. Hence apart from creating awareness about the same, making this technology available for the common masses is the need of the hour. Security should not be mistaken for luxury; in fact it should be treated as a necessity. And our production methodology is completely in sync with the Make In India initiative.”
Iris recognition uses random textures that are visible in the eye, using the eye to confirm someone’s identity. Unlike voice, fingerprints & facial structure, iris patterns have far more random patterns. An algorithm is created to map the iris, and then the random patterns which are formed are used to create a unique barcode which is unique for every individual. The probability of duplication for voice recognition is 1 in 500, facial recognition – 1 in 1000, fingerprint - 1 in 10,000, Apple touch ID - 1 in 50,000, Iris recognition - 1 in 15,00,000.
Earlier this year, Biomatiques had launched its latest range of products which are ultimate in terms of access and security. A leader in the field of iris recognition technology, Biomatiques is the first Indian company to get Standardization Testing & Quality Certification (STQC) from Department of Electronics & Information Technology (DeitY). “What is interesting is the fact that earlier cost was an issue with this technology; however we have made this technology available at the cost of finger print technology making it affordable with better security control and identification assurance. Biomatiques is the only Indian manufacturer of iris recognition technology which provides fool-proof and accurate security measure that will help protect businesses from fake identities. Our specialization includes Access Control, Time & Attendance, Identity Management, Single Sign-On and Enterprise Mobility Management’’, added Mr. Roy.
