BOCA RATON, Fla. - Over the past decade, identity theft has become more prevalent and sophisticated due to rapid technology advancements. By implementing the right electronic security equipment, such as Electrone Americas Ltd., Co.'s 720 Series Numeric Keypads, large institutions that handle and are responsible for private information can protect personal data from being stolen and used in identity theft schemes.
The variety and severity of the ways in which stolen personal information can be used for profit make identity theft frightening for everyone. An institution's implementation of up-to-date technology for better data security therefore stands to not only improve relations with existing customers, clients, and employees, but to help forge new relations based on the identity theft protection offered by its technological infrastructure. Thus, in addition to being the right thing to do, organizations also have self-serving reasons to help guard private information from identity theft.
Two common ways that identity theft criminals acquire peoples' personal data are by simply listening and watching. To help prevent identity theft, institutions should therefore implement technology (i.e., Electrone numeric keypads) that minimizes how often its customers, clients, and employees have to say their private information out loud, and how often these individuals have to enter their private information into exposed devices.
Electrone 720 Series Numeric Keypads are currently used by numerous institutions so individuals do not have to say their social security numbers to get service or treatment. Instead, they can key in their information for automatic identification. The institutions using Electrone keypads for this application, which include medical centers; banks; and driver's license offices, are making major strides toward protecting individuals from identity theft.
With the proper software, data entered into a 720 Series Numeric Keypad can be 100% encrypted, which prevents the data from being deciphered by unauthorized programs. Electrone numeric keypads can also be programmed so that their LCD screens show asterisks instead of actual digits. Furthermore, 720 Series Numeric Keypads can be customized to feature privacy shields that prevent anyone from seeing the numbers entered by users. Institutions can even choose from different interface options, such as Serial; USB; TCP/IP; and PoE, the latter two of which gives the keypads secure Ethernet connectivity.
An Electrone 720 Series Numeric Keypad is an extremely powerful electronic security equipment tool for helping to prevent identity theft.
