About Triad Biometrics, LLC:
Triad Biometrics, LLC, developed TEAMS(R), a groundbreaking enterprise level fingerprint biometric identification and authentication product that is setting a new paradigm for security, interoperability, and accountability. TEAMS(R) represents the next-generation in securely accessing web based applications. By enabling the elimination of passwords and password fields, data security, end user experience, and productivity are significantly improved while authentication-related maintenance and operating costs are reduced. User frustration and risk associated with finding, remembering, and storing passwords is eliminated. Unlike other commercial biometric systems, TEAMS(R) is an autonomous authentication method with no reliance on directory or other password-based systems, and once implemented, cannot be hacked, cracked, or circumvented. TEAMS(R) utilizes military-grade FIPS-140 Suite B cryptography in concert with several unique patented and pending features which enable a never-before-obtained level of identity confidence, privacy protection, and data security over un-trusted networks, such as the public internet.
Biometrics Research Group Inc. projects that the global biometrics market will grow to US$35.5 billion by 2020 from its 2015 value of US$15 billion. The market for automated fingerprint identification systems and fingerprint biometric technologies account for the greatest share of the global biometrics market and is forecast to continue to be the main source of overall market revenues from 2015 to 2020.
Biometric authentication is a technology that automatically confirms a person’s identity by comparing patterns of physical or behavioral characteristics in real time against enrolled computer records of those patterns. Leading biometric technologies accomplish this task by scanning patterns of the face, fingerprint, hand, iris, palm, signature, skin, or voice and storing then electronically in a secure, encrypted format.
Importantly, biometric identification is far superior to other common means of confirming identity, such as tokens (something one possesses) or passwords (something one knows). Tokens (drivers’ licenses, for example) and passwords (Social Security numbers, for example) cannot assure positive identification of a person. Tokens are routinely counterfeited and stolen. Passwords are routinely forgotten, left in plain sight, and stolen. Unlike tokens or passwords, biometric identifiers are inextricably linked to individuals themselves and, therefore, cannot be forgotten or stolen.
Biometric authentication also helps protect privacy by erecting a barrier between personal data and unauthorized access. Technically, biometric capture devices create electronic digital reference templates that are encrypted and stored and then compared to encrypted templates derived from “live” images in order to confirm a the identity of a person. The templates are generated from complex and proprietary algorithms and are then encrypted using strong cryptographic techniques to secure and protect them from disclosure. Thus, standing alone, biometric templates cannot be reconstructed, decrypted, reverse-engineered, or otherwise manipulated to reveal a person’s identity. In short, biometrics can be thought of as a very secure key: unless a biometric gate is unlocked by using the right key, no one can gain access to a person’s identity. Source: IBIA.org

ALUF maintains a marginal revenue stream from the software assets of its COREwafer days. That revenue has been declining over several quarters and one may expect it to decline further. Since Triad was not a public company we don’t know what level of revenue, if any they have achieved to add to the ALUF top line.
