As life becomes digital, guaranteeing data privacy is a growing concern both to users and companies. Almost every country has enacted regulation to protect the personal data shared by users with their service providers. With B-FY’s biometric authentication solution all data remains always under the user’s control, thus preventing risks of data breaches.
We have been hearing about biometrics for quite some time, but as cybercrime figures soar, it seems biometrics’ time to become the best solution to fight cyber-fraud has finally come.
Traditional security systems based in knowledge authentication are proving to be inefficient against cybercrime, thus, many enterprises are turning to biometric verification. Here are ten reasons why.
Breaches or delays in patient authentication can be fatal in the healthcare industry, one of the most attacked by cybercriminals in the last three years according to various reports.
The global healthcare biometrics market is expected to reach the value of 74.08 billion U.S. dollars (68.6 billion euros) by the end of 2028. Why? As the industry shifts from paper to electronic records, it needs more secure and reliable form of authentication: biometric ID.
Following the outbreak of COVID-19, the educational sector has seen drastic changes. Online learning took a leap and learning in a physical classroom disappeared across the world. As students get accustomed to this “new normal”, a hybrid learning approach is expected to remain. Biometric technology could help the education sector in meeting the increasingly complex security needs that have arisen from this ongoing transformation.
As the higher education industry is undergoing a major transformation to meet the demands of the new generations of students born in a technological environment, cyber attackers have found a new target. Meanwhile, biometric technology is proving to be a valuable solution to secure students’ data and improve the user’s experience both in virtual and physical campuses.
From 2020 to now, digital onboarding has become more frequent for both online and offline banking. Still, implementation, cost, UX and privacy real or imaginary challenges are holding back a wider implementation. B-FY's solution successfully addresses these challenges.
With the steady rise of biometrics our bodies are becoming the future of payment security. Nowadays it is enough with just a quick smile or a wave of the hand, as set in the recently launched Biometric Checkout Program by Mastercard.
By adopting biometric identification systems, subscription model businesses such as content platforms like Netflix, or intermediation platforms like Airbnb, can truly ensure users are who they say they are avoiding identity fraud or password sharing.
Biometrics can help event organizers in many ways, from reducing queuing time to increasing security, preventing fraud, helping the environment, or improving the attendees’ overall experience.
Is the company able to comply with the legal requirements linked to the use of biometrics? As the implementation of biometrics gains speed, regulation on data protection worldwide is following suit. Companies and institutions adopting biometrics must be very careful to avoid lawsuits.
The collection of biometric information is a sensitive topic. Therefore, the existing regulation in Europe is very strict. B-FY guarantees its clients adequate compliance with current regulations.
The implementation of Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) is certainly an improvement over using just a username and password. However, this method has some disadvantages. Biometric authentication, based on patterns inherent to each person, offers greater guarantees in terms of security.
Biometric technology identity authentication is rapidly becoming more ubiquitous in our daily life for a variety of applications, from border clearance and immigration to almost every service across industries. However, there are still some misbeliefs about the use of biometric technology, its deployment and uses. Here are the most common myths about biometric authentication busted.
The rapid evolution of Internet and the incorporation of digital products and services to all aspects of daily life has brought about an equivalent increase in cyber threats, most of them being identity and credential-based. IAM can help, but organizations must get their implementations right. Here are some IAM trends we have identified for 2023.
Two-step authentication or two-step verification (2FA) has become the identity verification system of choice for many organizations. However, it is a method that creates friction with the end-user, needs a learning curve and rises security concerns. Biometrics can help solve these issues.
