Facilities tend to tighten security in the days after a scary event happens or makes headlines, and people are generally tolerant of the associated inconvenience &ndash; for a time. But as memory fades, so too does tolerance for being inconvenienced. We want to be safe, but we also don&rsquo;t want to be bothered. We want a <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/tags/security-systems.html" class="blue_bold">security system</a> that both provides safety and is unobtrusive.</p> <p>Security doesn&rsquo;t have to be inconvenient. That&rsquo;s a core message of FST Biometrics, which leverages multiple technologies to identify people in motion, ensuring non-invasive, seamless security in a variety of environments.</p> <p><strong>&ldquo;In Motion Identification&rdquo;</strong></p> <table style="width: 305px; height: 48px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="right"> <tbody> <tr> <td> <h2><strong><em>FST...Identiv to showcase intelligent building infrastructure at Infosecurity Europe 2015http://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-420-ga-co-5790-ga-co-3194-ga.17712.htmlhttp://www.sourcesecurity.com/news/articles/co-420-ga-co-5790-ga-co-3194-ga.17712.htmlEvents NewsWed, 27 May 2015 08:00:00 GMT<table style="width: 1px; height: 269px;" border="0" cellspacing="8" align="left"> <tbody> <tr> <td></td> </tr> <tr> <td class="smalltxt" valign="top" align="center"><strong>Identiv will demonstrate its new technology platform that enables these devices to interoperate with privacy and trust</strong></td> </tr> </tbody> </table> <p><a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/companies/company-listing/identive-group.html" class="blue_bold">Identiv, Inc.</a> will be at <a href="http://www.sourcesecurity.com/events/enhanced-event-listing/infosecurity-europe-2015.html" class="blue_bold">Infosecurity Europe</a>, June 2 - 4, 2015, showcasing its new intelligent building infrastructure.
