NEC launches face-recognition protection for PCs

Tim Hornyak | April 22, 2014
NEC has launched a biometric security program that uses face recognition to unlock access to PCs.

The spread of face-recognition technology has fueled concerns about privacy, but NEC said the NeoFace Monitor data will be protected on client servers.

"Since the facial features that are identified using this system are expressed exclusively in numerical data, a person's physical features cannot be restored/generated based on those numbers, thereby ensuring that the recognition of a person's image is not at risk," an NEC spokesman said.
