Toyo-Tec Co., Ltd.
Collective management from entry and exit to system authentication
Achieve enhanced security at ideal cost by utilizing the existing infrastructure
In Toyo-Tec, password management had an important position for the management of internal control. The background was that users were required to update passwords every six months in accordance with an internal provision, and the company spent a great deal of time and effort to manage the change of ID/password.
It is currently not necessary to store IDs/passwords after introduction of the IC card authentication by utilizing the conventional infrastructure. And therefore the risk of information leakage and the time for changing them are also reduced and the convenience of management is improved as well. We consider that the authentication function will be expanded to support tablets in future.
IC card authentication has been adopted by leveraging existing infrastructure.
We propose various security systems as a security company. However, we have some experience in security, and we were interested in the field. We had an issue of internal control and learned about the fingerprint authentication of DDS. We were aware of the possibility of authentication with IC card, and then started to study for the adoptation of a system for internal control.
We had an impression that fingerprint authentication of DDS had very high performance with few errors. However, the difficulty for us was in terms of cost if we purchased a number of units. Then the possibility to introduce the system for IC card authentication that had already been employed for entry/exit was highly expected. The decisive factor was that IC card authentication could utilize the existing infrastructure. Furthermore, another important decisive factor for us was the fact that the system from DDS was capable of supporting various special systems, such as office computers and dedicated software.
There is a lot of work such as reloading data etc.
On the other hand, there is a concern about the loss or theft of IC cards. Since the manual password authentication is not permitted currently, a staff member who forgets the card must receive a guest card from the Administrative Department and then be registered in the Information System Department for authentication. In our company, the cards are reused. If there is a retiree, the registered data on the retiree’s card will be deleted by the Administrative Department and new data will be registered when the card is handed to a new employee. It is required to update card information at the time of personnel change in our company. Since personnel changes will take place largely in spring and autumn, the current situation is that a certain amount of time and effort will be spent processing card information. In order to mitigate this work, we look forward to the development of a system capable of reloading the registered information at once.
