Michael Friedman, Director, Emerging Technologies Advisory Service



Biometric authentication has begun a noticeable evolution from science fiction to everyday technology.  From Lenovo ThinkPad’s outfitted with biometric readers to biometric payment devices at a growing number of retail locations, the opportunity for vendors is expanding.  And yet, adoption has not fully met expectations begging the question: Is biometric authentication worth the hype? 

 

Mercator Advisory Group’s webinar will outline the state of biometric authenticated payments in the industry today.  The webinar will discuss trends in the industry, different biometric options, and the market’s potential going forward.  In addition, the webinar will address the notion of second-factor biometric authentication, seen as one of the driving forces for future biometric growth.
