Headquartered in Surat, Biomatiques Identification Solutions specializes in Iris Recognition Technology that enables businesses to keep a track of its employees through cutting-edge solutions like Biometric Scanners, Iris Time & Attendance Systems, and Iris Access Control.

In today's times, hacking systems or breaking security codes has become quite easy. With the right tools, anyone can fake an identity and get access to anything. It is not difficult to steal an access card, crack a security code, or to fake a voice or finger print. Even getting entry in a secure access area or getting access to a bank, email account or social networking account is not such a tough nut to crack.

Each day, many security products and technologies are being brought to light, each having a low percentage of FAR - False Acceptance Rate & FRR - False Rejection Rate. 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. The eye opening breakthrough technology of Iris recognition will soon replace fingerprint technology.

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 bar code which is unique for every individual.

There are many reasons why iris recognition beats the other forms of biometric methods. Facial features happen to change over a period of time. As we age, our looks change year by year, our skin tone changes, we develop wrinkles and there are other factors that make us look different. This may require regular re-enrolment to the system which invites additional cost. Even finger prints go through wear and tear as our hands are used for most of our day to day activities. In comparison, the eyes are the most protected organ.
