Biometric Research and Evaluation
The world of biometrics and Identity Management is in a constant state of change, with new devices and algorithms launching almost daily. As a world leader in Identity Lifecycle solutions and Intelligence, Daon Consultants understand the benefits of complex biometric technologies and when best to apply them within specific Identity Management scenarios.
Our mission is to provide the surety of outcome our customers require in deploying systems to address their specific challenges. Our Consultants have unparalleled industry experience in working with existing and deploying new Identity Management solutions – even those not using Daon products. Our biometric research and evaluation services can be applied at any point in the program life cycle from its initial planning through implementation and maintenance.
Daon Consultants use a number of methods and tools to evaluate biometric and identity products, systems and entire biometric solutions. Daon Analytics, our biometric toolkit, is a favorite for evaluating the latest biometric technologies and assessing the performance and conformance of deployed biometrically enabled systems. It can also assess information from multiple biometrics to mathematically predict the most successful combinations (fusion techniques) and present these in an easily consumable manner.
Daon Consultants have the deep information security and management experience to address customer privacy concerns early on in any solutions development. DaonEngine’s architecture places privacy and security as top priorities, encrypting data both when at rest and when traveling from point-to-point. Our hierarchy of encryption and signing keys keep customers’ data private under the most extreme circumstances and ensures access is not given to the wrong people at any time.
This prioritization of privacy – that our products are designed to keep information secure and consistent with each customer’s specific privacy requirements – is a significant differentiator for Daon.
Business Needs and Gap Analysis
Daon’s Business Needs and Gap Analysis service refines the customer’s business requirements and documents the configurations and enhancements to Daon products based upon our established best practices. Our rapid solution prototyping capability enables project stakeholders to efficiently agree upon business requirements and use cases.
Our Gap Analysis demonstrates how Daon and third party products satisfy the Business Needs, explaining Daon functionality and exploring the most feasible configuration and third party products to meet those needs. A Daon Consultant works with the customer and/or partner throughout these processes to determine what combination of Daon products, third party products, tools and devices will provide the best overall solution to the business requirements.
Solution Architecture and Design
Daon design engineers and architects are highly experienced in translating business needs and their associated functional, non-functional and technical requirements into a solution architecture and design. Our solution design team fuses best practices with real world implementation experience to help customers understand their requirements and extrapolate them into the best possible solution.
Daon has extensively researched data protection and privacy legislation globally, including legislation on biometric storage and transmission in national and international systems. Our industry-recognized legal and privacy experts provide the advice and guidance required to assist customers understand the context and application of the relevant controls, ensuring they can be accommodated in the most pragmatic way.
Our ongoing active participation in biometrics and standards bodies further extends the Daon body of knowledge, compiled over the course of our corporate history. This internal resource is used to map the most appropriate technologies and techniques to the desired business outcomes of our customers.

Our Consultants have an especially keen focus on realizing scalable and secure, service-oriented architectures, which provide solutions that deliver immediate value and form a strong platform for future evolution.
Daon software is designed to be inherently flexible, vendor agnostic and available for a variety of platforms. Our experience in deploying end-to-end solutions allows our team to deliver successful program outcomes in industry-leading timeframes. This efficiency derives from our approach of blending COTS software, third party products and Daon integration services in successful combinations which facilitate on-time and on-budget delivery.
Daon Integration teams are equally adept at delivering turnkey solutions or working alongside other teams to provide the advice and guidance necessary for them to develop solutions based upon Daon and third party products.
