Smart Cards contain integrated circuits that allow the cards to store data in a secure way. These circuits are part of an overall information and network security solution. BESTEQ has performed Smart Card research and implementations for highly secure agencies. Smart Card solutions provide security for physical access to buildings, offices, and laboratories, as well as allowing logical access to secure operations. Smart Cards can be used with biometrics, such as fingerprints to verify individual access to a network, computer, or facility.
