Moscow, 14 Feb — “News. Economy” In 2022, about 70% of companies that use biometric identification for employees, will implement these technologies through applications for smartphones, according to research company Gartner. In 2018, the share of such organizations was only 5%.
According to analysts, interest in biometric authentication is heated reducing costs and improving the user/client features that provide such technology.
“Market leaders in systems security management and risk, responsible for the management of identity access (IAM) and the prevention of fraud, continue to look for approaches to identification, which would balance the trust and responsibility with total cost of ownership and functionality”, — said the Vice-President, research, Gartner Ant Allan.
“Biometric authentication uses biological or behavioral traits that are unique to each person and provides greater reliability user/client capabilities, and from a technical point of view, this approach is easier than the direct support of many different end devices, the expert added.
Organizations wishing to implement biometric authentication via smartphone applications, should be aware of the possible dependencies of biometrics before cyber attacks or spoofing attacks when falsifiziert photo and video data, which allows to obtain illegal benefits. It is therefore very important to address the issue of detecting attacks and the analysis of cycles to failure, warn researchers.
In Gartner predict that by 2022 40% of global organizations of medium and large sizes will use possibilities of the IAM provided on the model of “software as a service” (SaaS) to meet most of their needs. In 2018, this share is measured at 5%.
The study says that IAM solutions are distributed on the SaaS model, are often used to improve the implementation of the software access control systems.
Easy implementation and quick return on IAM products, provided by the SaaS model has proven useful for organizations that support the introduction of SaaS and do not consider operational management of IAM functionality for its activity, the analysts add.
First remote authentication Apple tested in 2013, using the fingerprints in the service ApplePay. Today, for many banks this is everyday life, customers fingerprint identificeret Bank of America Merrill Lynch, Royal Bank of Scotland.
Use banks and other biometric data: for example, Standard Chartered Bank and Citibank — the voice, Barclays (UK) — vascular pattern of the finger, HSBC (UK) — performs the identification of self. Each authentication method has advantages and disadvantages. Not all of them have promise, but the trend is clear.
One of the largest biometric databases is considered to be the Aadhaar system in India. It is designed to expand the audience of consumers of banking services, as a significant part of the population lives in rural areas and cannot personally visit the office.
In Russia in 2018, the legislation also created the conditions for the implementation of remote authentication and built a single biometric system using combined biometric face and voice. In the future, this can add behavioral biometrics — the identification of the manner to pronounce the words the typical facial expressions.
