Contactless payments are taking off - why Identity-Bound Biometrics are Essential for Authentication

of consumers have a positive attitude toward biometrics for access control, and the market for contactless biometric technology is projected to reach $18.6 billion by 2026 according to KBV Research.

Secure, Easy-To-Use Access Control

Companies like BIO-key International Inc. (NASDAQ: BKYI) ? with expertise in identity and access management (IAM) and Identity-Bound Biometric (IBB) solutions ? could play a big role in providing secure, easy-to-use authentication options for organizations while eliminating the high costs associated with traditional methods.

BIO-key boasts a one-of-a-kind MFA mobile app ? MobileAuth? ? that integrates the power of IBB across multiple authentication modalities, allowing customers to build a more complete MFA strategy.

The app can safeguard critical data by authenticating the person with IBB using PalmPositive? which uses a palm scan, or FacePositive(?) which uses facial recognition. The app also supports traditional MFA methods including Apple (NASDAQ: AAPL) iOS or Google (NASDAQ: GOOG) Android device-based biometrics and push tokens. It provides flexibility for employees, customers, and suppliers to choose from multiple, easy-to-use options to authenticate while offering the superior security and convenience that is offered by IBB methods.

The company says that a key use case for MobileAuthTM is customer identity and access management (CIAM), scaling access to millions of customer identities with no additional hardware required.

?With cybercrime on a steady rise, it?s more important than ever to have a strong, easy-to-use, and affordable multi-factor authentication strategy in place," said Michael DePasquale, BIO-key?s chairman, and CEO. ?We?re at a critical point in the evolution of authentication where stronger solutions must include a factor that?s based on ?who you are.? We?re extremely proud to address this need by empowering our customers to take full advantage of traditional authentication methods as well as Identity-Bound Biometrics from the convenience of any mobile device using MobileAuth.?
