White Paper on Convergence of Biometric Identity Resolution and Identity Management Solutions

A new class of vendors has developed unique technologies and solutions that integrate biometric and biographic data for identity resolution within robust and flexible system architectures that connect and enable business processes for identity management purposes. 

Frost & Sullivan recently published a white paper, The Next Level of Identity Solutions: The Convergence of Biometric Identity Resolution and Identity Management Solutions, that explores this topic by analyzing the concepts of Biometric Identity Resolution and Identity Management Solutions and their importance, describing the market trends driving their adoption, and considering the new market entrants in this emerging field.

"Biometric resolution (or "matching") systems help end users derive benefits that are traditionally associated with improved safety, security, and public well-being," says Frost & Sullivan Electronics & Security analyst Dilip Sarangan. "Biographic identity management solutions provide benefits associated with increased productivity, operational accountability, and compliance. The unique integration of identity resolution (with biometric data) and identity management (with biographic data and access administration) systems combine the benefits from each solution, while enabling improvements for end users."

According to Sarangan, "Merkatum Corporation develops biometric and biographic identity resolution systems that effectively determine, interpret, and manage the identity of individuals in order to deter identity fraud and safety/security risks.  Merkatum's core product, its patent-pending emfiva F/FRS®" biometric resolution and identity management system, searches and compares the identity of individuals in databases and in the field by utilizing fingerprint, facial, and/or biographic recognition algorithms leveraged by an open, scalable, and business process-driven, service-oriented architecture (SOA)."
