Allen County Ohio, in conjunction with the Allen County Sheriff’s Office has selected BioLink’s IDenium for access to desktops and mobile terminals across county-wide organizations.
BioLink IDenium is an enterprise-ready biometric authentication and Single Sign-On solution managed from Microsoft Active Directory. BioLink IDenium replaces passwords with fingerprint authentication.
The BioLink system is used to secure computers and networks in county offices as well as for access to mobile terminals in police cars. With the success in the sheriff’s office, the department recommended it to other agencies.
The system was the able to protect the Auditors Office, and the County’s network from possible internal network intrusion. Additionally it has reduced the number of mistyped passwords and Windows lockouts that occur as a result, says Mark Smith, Allen County’s IT director.
