At the top of 2017, FindBiometrics pegged behavioral biometrics as a technology set to go mainstream. Now, with the biggest and most disruptive FinTech conference underway in Las Vegas, it’s clear this prediction was prescient. Behavioral biometrics are at the core of major integrations, enlightening talks, and game-changing solutions this year at Money20/20, and NuData Security, a Mastercard Company, is on the exhibition floor, an example of just how integral continuous authentication is becoming.
FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill stopped by the Mastercard booth and interviewed Robert Capps, VP Business Development, NuData Security. The conversation starts with talk of NuData’s recent Javelin award, and why behavioral biometrics are so hot right now. Capps then discusses the Mastercard acquisition of NuData, and the vertical markets beyond financial that the company is pursuing. The interview concludes with an assessment of the importance of addressing cybersecurity issues in this current age of social media and high profile data breaches.
