As industries rapidly adopt a mobile-first work culture, the role of biometrics is becoming more critical than ever. While biometrics can potentially replace the traditional verification process comprising passwords and security questions, trends show that mobile biometrics is picking up, particularly in the APAC region. The major factor behind this growth is the increasing mobile transactions.
Besides, biometrics has also brought about a fundamental change in the security operations in sensitive places such as airports. Many airports are investing heavily in adopting a facial recognition boarding system to save time and deliver the highest customer satisfaction. Given that the cost associated with the management of biometric data through a physical server can be relatively high, companies are now relying on cloud servers to store their sensitive information. Cloud-based biometrics is a scalable option that enables companies to channel capital that would otherwise have been utilized on the up-gradation of local servers.
Further, the emergence of biometrics technology has also enabled governments in the APAC region to leverage biometrics for national security, particularly for border control and citizen identification.
In the wake of these emerging trends in security, Enterprise Security Magazine has compiled a list of top 10 biometric companies that exhibit competence in delivering robust and efficient biometric solutions in the APAC region. We hope this issue of Enterprise Security Magazine helps you take a proactive approach to ensure security.
