Internet of Things (IoT) will encompass more than 30 billion connected devices by 2020 however traditional authentication methods of passwords or PINs are not only limited in their use within IoT devices but also provide poor security. Incorporating biometric technology into IoT including the smart home and automotive sectors provides robust identification and security, and revolutionizes the user experience.
Through enterprise-level biometric sensor technology, IoT device manufacturers are able to incorporate fingerprint identification sensors into products providing simple and secure authentication at a cost-effective price.
- Add security to devices that was previously limited due to form factor
- Replaces traditional methods of passwords or pins
- Cost effective.
