June is Consumer Biometrics Month at FindBiometrics. For the next four weeks we will be examining the booming consumer biometrics market—highlighting major products and solutions, commenting on major trends, and helping you get a full picture of the intricate world of popular biomerty. The following introduction from Scott Mahnken, VP of Marketing, BIO-key—whose biometric technology is enabling the wide-spread adoption of strong authentication for every day use which we will be exploring throughout June—will provide a glimpse of what to expect in the coming weeks.
BIO-key is pioneering a new term for all of us. The “Biometric of Things” (BoT) represents BIO-key’s commitment to developing a series of consumer-friendly products that are activated with the power of a touch.
In line with the Internet of Things (IoT) BIO-key recognizes the need for including biometrics to optimize the intuitive technologies designed to make our lives more efficient. Think of your fingerprint as your “BIO-key” and the master key to all of your secured treasures. It started with a series of compact fingerprint readers that are compatible with Windows Hello (SideSwipe, SideTouch, and EcoID). Most recently the company was recognized for introducing a “Top Product” at CES 2017 with TouchLock a biometric padlock.
