NEC is the global leader in the field of Biometric authentication. We started the R&D of Biometrics authentication technologies including Fingerprint and Facial Recognition in the 1970s. NEC’s unique and highly accurate biometric authentication technology solutions are deployed worldwide.

What is biometrics?

Biometrics is the technical term for body measurements and calculations. It refers to metrics related to human characteristics. Biometrics authentication is used in computer science as a form of identification and access control.

Types of biometrics

NEC’s original Biometric authentication technologies cover six areas—Facial Recognition, Iris Recognition, Fingerprint/Palm Print Recognition, Finger Vein Recognition, Voice Recognition and new windowEar Acoustic Authentication. NEC is a global leader in biometric technology and many of these products and solutions are the best in their class in the world. NEC provides the most suitable solutions to customers’ needs with its new windowBiometric authentication technologies. In addition, by combining multiple Biometric authentication systems, NEC’s solutions bring about even more robust Biometric security systems.
