BioCatch is celebrating the rise of behavioral biometrics as a key security solution.

Behavioral Biometrics Emerging as a Key SolutionIn a new blog post, the company notes that a new report from Acuity Market Intelligence predicts that 2017 will be ‘a “breakout” year for biometrics,’ with the mainstreaming of this technology being “its no. 1 trend in 2017.” And Acuity isn’t alone in this enthusiasm, with BioCatch also noting that a new report on biometrics from Mercator Advisory Group calls behavioral biometrics “an increasingly important factor in establishing trust.”

The excitement was also reflected in FindBiometrics’ 2016 Year in Review, in which survey respondents ranked behavioral biometrics, tied with iris scanning, as the third most exciting biometric modality, after fingerprint and facial recognition.

Some large organizations are already getting onboard. BioCatch notes, for example, that UK-based bank NatWest announced its deployment of BioCatch’s behavioral biometrics platform last November, and other behavioral biometrics specialists have also reported growing client interest. It all points to a big year for behavioral biometrics, and increasing security for end users.
