Predicts Rapid Adoption of Mobile Biometrics and Highlights Importance of Authentication Everywhere
PALO ALTO, CA / ACCESSWIRE / August 21, 2014 / In this month's Biometric Update Special Report on Mobile Authentication, Biometrics Research Group, Inc. presents a variety of data to support the rapid and broad adoption of biometrics in next-generation mobile devices including tablets, smartphones, wearables and other Internet of Things products. Technologies such as AGNITiO Voice iD enable seamless, continuous authentication that will improve device security and ease of use, while driving an increase in mobile commerce.
"Biometrics Research Group, Inc. predicts there will be a rush to integrate biometrics into the next generation of smart mobile devices," said Mike Goldgof, Vice President of Marketing for AGNITiO. "Speaking to our devices has become natural for most users in a variety of scenarios – from calls to voice dictation and search, while the use of voice biometrics has been proven to be effective in a variety of government and commercial applications. At AGNITiO, we see Voice iD as the next natural step toward secure and easy-to-use mobile authentication and a perfect solution for the ubiquity of the Internet of Things."
Biometric Research Group, Inc. estimates that the IoT alone will connect nearly 9 billion devices by 2018, with 500 million of those using biometric sensors. *
The AGNITiO KIVOX Mobile platform includes an SDK for on-device secure speaker verification and can be rapidly integrated into authentication applications on smartphones and other embedded platforms. AGNITiO is a founding member of the FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance and has the only voice biometrics product certified as FIDO Ready(tm). Since voice enrollment and matching are done locally on the device, there is no need for network connections or voice transmissions. Therefore, the report states that with AGNITiO KIVOX Mobile, "authentication can be done anywhere."
In summary, the Biometrics Research Group, Inc. expects biometric mobile security to be embraced by both device manufacturers and consumers alike to protect personal, corporate and financial data as mobile technology and online commerce continues to evolve.
