In an effort to provide its customers with more secure and faster access to its resources, Sharp Healthcare, a San Diego-based health care provider consisting of 1,800 licensed beds and 2,500 physicians, has been looking towards biometrics, according to a Source Security article. Biometrics enabled Sharp to access records with single sign-on capabilities and use context management.
To achieve these results, Sharp utilizes Vergence technology from Sentillion which enables the BioLogon fingerprint biometric authentication readers and software from biometrics developer Identix.
