RCG encouraged by widespread biometric adoption.

RCG Corporation : 31 October, 2007  (Company News)
Biometric authentication is more than just identity control according to RCG, who explains the benefits of the technology as being wider than this.
The security industry has recently adopted biometric technology in search of higher capabilities and met with enormous success. Vast business opportunities, coupled with unprecedented market growth and widespread users' acceptance are recorded globally. It is an encouraging sign towards the array of existing innovative market offerings in resolving and improving the longstanding industry shortcomings within the area of personal identification. The advancement of technology has yet provided more flexible user interface and system platforms to enhance user convenience, efficiency and security.

RCG believes the novelty of utilising highly personal characteristics such as human traits as direct means of decisively authenticating an individual's identity in security fulfilment, is in itself a personal empowering process. Individuals no longer rely upon the presence of a physical possession such as a door key, or a made-up password that fail to accurately reflect one's true identity in all circumstances. Such unique bodily characteristics enable a human being to complete the identification procedures, in a way leading to a sense of self satisfaction and experiences of personal empowerment.

In attaining the virtue of modern lifestyle where convenience and efficiency are necessities, RCG believes biometrics authentication holds the future. Its lately developed universal key system is designed to access valuables, identify oneself and enjoy the privilege of one's biometric characteristics. Regard one's biometric characteristics as a single key granted to the individual to retain access privileges towards protected materials in manifold manners and locations, in comparison with the conventional one-key-one-system platform of current offerings. The context could be an individual using the universal key to unlock doors of his/her home or office, to access enclosed valuables within a storage box, or even retrieving sensitive computer files stored within the key. This versatile functionality is achieved by an emphasis put on a unique security feature enabled by the embedded fingerprint biometrics identification components, whereas every access requires the presence of the key and the pre-registered fingerprints. "Unwired, untangle, convenient and user-friendly, and yet secure" is the objective being held as RCG developed the system. It is both liberating and relieving to minimize the number of keys that must be carried around, and passwords to be memorized for daily operations.

In line with the identical mentality, it is not surprising that modern devices and solutions have tilted into the direction of mobilization. Practically, the seamless adaptation offers massive freedom for end-users. This "unbinding" quality offers owners with precious choices to perform the very same task anywhere as wished, again, a personal empowering experience. The security aspect as part of the mobilization development is often undermined as individuals and enterprises are more attracted towards the flashy specifications and functions. A number of prominent products exclusively developed by RCG have been launched in response to this limitation. RCG believes mobility should not lead to security vulnerability. Instead, it gives new light to the security applications development combating with a more versatile situation that people face today, a philosophy reflected in the company's wide range of offerings.

Differing from most of the companies in the biometrics products market, which place emphasis upon developing products and solutions exclusively on large scale government levels, RCG realizes a large chunk of the market comes from the enterprise or consumer side. Government often assumes the role of technology educator towards the public market during the initial stage when the biometrics technology comes into sight. The technology has since matured and now ready to be applied across sectors, as supported by the high user acceptance rate. Biometrics products specifically targeting consumer level have been designed and developed with added concerns over convenience and security, in response to market needs. One of the RCG's privileged product lines, the BioMirage Coffer is a biometrically powered storage box designed for forward-thinking and discerning social elites, and collectors of valuable items. It comes in multiple colours, which make the box itself an attractive home or office decoration accessories. To access the storage, the authorized user(s) is / are required to pre-register fingerprint into the system, for future unlocking procedures without any physical keys.

"Beyond Identity" - the statement reveals people can use their innate abilities to enjoy greater convenience, generating ultimate individual freedom. Overall, RCG believes the evolving biometrics technology should provide additional gear for individual users or enterprises against the possibility of any intruders with intention to steal or damage the owner's possessions. It is believed to bring about higher control of the individual or enterprise users over their possessions through biometric identification that provides the much needed peace-of-mind.
Dedicated to developing and creating integrated products and solutions with state-of-the-art biometric and RFID systems, RCG believes the biometrics technology would be utilized in all aspects of everyday lives, eventually.
