Safeguard Your Business with Superior Biometrics
Application of Biometrics and Digital ID
Biometrics offers a secure way to build a confident user base. Attendees only need one facial profile for their digital ticket, making ticket transfer and reselling more secure and controlled. Venues can also use the same technology to prevent identity fraud when validating VIP passes or staff credentials.
How It Works
NEC's identity services integrate with your app, where the user sets up their Digital Token.
The user can use several fintech apps but has only one profile for each, based on the unique Digital Token.
Authenticating the biometric Digital Token stored on each user's phone with the encryption key on the NEC Digital Platform means they are protected even if your database is breached. Hackers can't make fraudulent transactions.
The Digital Token is stored on their phone, not your centralized server, so it cannot be stolen in a data breach.
Once a Digital Token is established via an app, the same unique Digital Token is used for all apps enabled by NEC identity services.
Use Cases and Benefits
Harnessing the power of biometrics and Digital ID through mobile applications can provide an elevated and streamlined fan experience in stadiums and arenas. Here are key use cases that elucidate how such technology can revolutionize these settings.
