While numerous vendors at this year’s ISC West security expo continue to demonstrate the utility of traditional biometric modalities like fingerprint scanning and facial recognition, a new kind of biometric technology is poised to take a growing place in the spotlight: behavioral biometrics.
Based on the subtle behavioral patterns emerging from how users behave online and interact with their devices, behavioral biometrics surprised many by tying for third most exciting modality in FindBiometrics’ Year in Review industry survey for 2016. Since then Mercator Advisory Group predicted that the technology will play “an increasingly important” role in consumer authentication, and Acuity Market Intelligence forecasted that it will go mainstream this year. Meanwhile, big money is getting into the game, with Mastercard having recently announced that it will acquire behavioral biometrics specialist NuData.
That latter will in fact be a participant in FindBiometrics’ upcoming expert webinar, with NuData Customer Success VP Ryan Wilk participating alongside another behavioral biometrics expert – Frances Zelazny, VP of BioCatch, whose technology was recently embraced by Nuance Communications. Acuity Market Intelligence Principal Analyst Maxine Most will also be on hand to provide valuable industry and market insights, and of course the panel will be moderated by FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill.
The webinar, Continuous Identity: Why Behavioral Biometrics Are Going Mainstream, will take place on Wednesday, April 26th, at 11:00am EDT, and registration is free.
