Dealers at Dutch bank ING are using biometric fingerprint technology on the trading floor to increase security and boost productivity.

The bank is using biometric fingerprint identity management technology from Bio-key International and fingerprint readers from Zvetco Biometrics.

Dutch biometric consultancy BioXS integrated Bio-key’s software with Zvetco’s readers at ING, resulting in a fingerprint identification solution that enables the global financial services company’s dealers to access central dealing room computers quickly and securely.
 
Reinier van der Drift, general manager at BioXS, said, “In the past, complex passwords were required for ING dealers to access secure trading room workstations, which were easy to forget or lose, and they had to be changed often to maintain optimum security.  Now, access to ING’s dealer room computers is always at the user’s fingertip.”
