Biometrics are changing the way we define and protect our borders. Automated border control eGates in airports, automated passport kiosks, next gen secure documents, biometric checkpoints at land borders—these are just some of the many ways that next gen identity technologies are keeping track of the visitors to and travellers from our modern nations. The benefits are manyfold. With the increasing use of biometrics at national boundaries comes a greater level of national security, but the convenience offered by the technology is also expediting the security process for those who seek to traverse our borders. In today’s world of international...
In today’s multimodal biometrics landscape, voice biometrics holds a distinctly unique position. Contactless and extremely low friction, voice biometrics can be used for authentication and identification in a wide range of markets from the booming industry of FinTech, to the new applications emerging from the Internet of Things. Listen in as our panel discusses voice biometrics and its position in the hyper connected world.
We are living in an era of unprecedented mobile biometric proliferation. The same innovations that have allowed for fingerprint, face, and iris recognition to proliferate consumer tech have enabled biometrics to become more accessible in the enterprise. Wearables, smartphones, biometrics, smart cards, NFC, RFID, and other physical access technologies are all at an intersection point, and in the top-down, hypothetically closed system of the workplace, that convergence has the potential to breed efficiency. Listen in as our experts discuss how biometrics are changing access control.
We are at the start of a new revolution in mobile biometrics. The latest research from Acuity Market Intelligence shows that biometric smartphones are officially mainstream. Meanwhile the growing prominence of the Internet of Things is stoking the demand for new innovations in mobile authentication. Mobile biometrics have changed the face of payments, and now they are poised to further evolve the enterprise, consumer identity and the Internet itself as we move beyond the password. Listen to our experts discuss this fascinating topic.
