The article provides information on the usefulness of biometrics as one of the security systems used by companies in the U.S. It mentions that availability of biometrics in the market and cites that there are several companies have used and relied on this security product, particularly the Scandinavian Airlines. Meanwhile, the Associated Students at California State University has already installed seven Schlage HandPunch time and attendance readers for their students and employees.
