The access control market is growing as new innovations emerge, including advancements in biometric authentication, and IoT integration.
One of the most common reasons businesses are subject to data breaches is due to ineffective access control, vital as a measure to prevent confidential data loss to hackers, but also when businesses are increasingly undergoing transformational changes in structures and processes and with new or shifting staff.
The latest report from IHS Markit on Electronic Access Control predicts 6.8% global growth in 2017. While fingerprint recognition remains the industry standard for biometric readers, facial recognition looks set to increasingly contest iris recognition, due in part due to the ease of install, but also attributed to concerns over damage to the eye with iris recognition.
At B-Secur we are continuing to invest in ECG biometric authentication, as one of the most secure and robust internal biometrics available, and predict internal biometrics will disrupt the market in 2017.
According toPersistence Market Research’s forthcoming report Iris Biometrics Market: Global Industry Analysis and Forecast 2015 – 2021, a rising demand for authentication and extensive support from the government is fuelling the growth in the market.
