I have an existing database with fingerprints enrolled, can Fides use these fingerprints?

The Fides value proposition lies in its ability to utilize a variety of different fingerprint images. As long as the existing images have been stored, a cloud biometric database can be created where existing biometric fingerprints can be verified against.

Can I plugin Fides biometrics into my existing systems and not have to use two seperate systems?

Fides can be integrated into any system without that system having to change it's front-end in any way. This ensures quick implementation and easy transition for users of the system to incorporate biometrics. Integration with the Fides biometric platform can be done within days as the solution is complete with a comprehensive set of REST and SOAP API’s and an SDK. Many software solutions in various industries have integrated with Fides to create biometric authentication capabilities for their business processes.

Do I need to be concerned about South African or International Legislation?

Fides audits all activities relating to the enrolment, verification, and enquiry of an individual’s biometrics or personal information. This detailed audit trail ensures compliance to POPI and provides comfort to individuals and corporates that an individual’s information cannot be tampered with without an accurate record of what happened by which user at what time.

Does Fides perform Biometric Quality Controls when managing fingerprints?

Fides has implemented various quality control measures to allow for optimal biometric solutions. These include:
Fingerprint Duplicate Check – a real-time check determining whether the biometric is already enrolled against a different identity
Real-time quality checks - when enrolling fingerprints, minimum requirements are established to ensure only high quality fingerprints are stored
Quality controls - Fides can tweak matching requirements to accomodate for various environments
