Ceelox IDŽ software authenticates users via biometrics before allowing them access to personal computers, files, external drives and networks.
Ceelox fingerprint biometrics substantially reduces the chance that an unauthorized person could access your computer services, files or networks. Each user simply authenticates their identity via a fingerprint scanner. This provides a much stronger access authentication than user name and passwords that can be lost, stolen, forgotten or shared.
Ceelox IDŽ offers convenient password replacement with the swipe of a finger. By far the largest category of Help Desk calls is username and password related. The use of Ceelox IDŽ will substantially reduce the large number of your help desk calls related to usernames and passwords. In an organization with 5,000 users, the cost elimination can be as high as $40,000 each and every month. If your organization or your applications require ironclad security, using Ceelox fingerprint biometrics in combination with usernames and passwords provides the strongest authentication readily available today.
How It Works Ceelox IDŽ enrolls a new user's fingerprint by conducting several scans of each of two or more fingers.
When it obtains sufficient data on each enrolled finger, it builds a biometric template.
Ceelox IDŽ notifies the user that enrollment was successful.
At each subsequent user logon, Ceelox IDŽ prompts the user to authenticate by placing an enrolled finger on the fingerprint scanner. The software then compares data obtained from the fingerprint scan to the users data file. If the two sets of data match, Ceelox IDŽ grants access.
At no time is an image of the users fingerprint captured and stored. Instead, minutia points about the users fingerprint are captured and used to create a unique biometric template. The chance of a false positive, granting unauthorized access is 10 to the 7th power.
Ceelox IDŽ securely encrypts all data (both enrollment and log on) that defines a user fingerprint and then encrypts it a second time to insure its security. In addition, the software makes it impossible for an unauthorized user who deciphers a user fingerprint file to successfully authenticate using that deciphered data.
Ceelox IDŽ installs easily on a network server or single user personal computer. The server edition is highly scalable and supports Windows Active Directory credentialing. Ceelox IDŽ supports Active Directory to allow the user to access any secured location with a Single Sign On (SSO). SSO provides convenience to the user, and eliminates the need for multiple passwords which can be forgotten or lost, consuming costly help desk time.
