"There are so many areas, so many questions, they're paralyzed," said Robert Dammeyer, chief executive of The Best Security Inc., which sells a system called Lock-Out that aims to thwart unauthorized users from gaining access to a PC.
But while it's not clear why people need to replace PCs, there are plenty of reasons to upgrade security.
Whether the enemy is a global terrorist or a disgruntled employee, password-based security is failing us.Walk around just about any office and you'll find passwords on slips of paper taped to computer monitors.We have too many passwords to remember them all.
Passive security systems that require no particular attention from users are gaining ground in Europe at least, where The Best Security
has been winning some contracts, Mr. Dammeyer
Lock-Out integrates a variety of technologies to authenticate the identity of users, based on the idea that several kinds of locks are much safer than one.The most basic lock relies on the user carrying a key-ring token based on a programmable chip.The top-of-the-line lock depends on electronic readers capable of facial recognition.
Although facial recognition technology can be balky, Mr. Dammeyer
said it works very well for user authentication.

said."We're just looking to match your ID."
