Follow us on LinkedIn – Technologies such as vein pattern scanning, fingerprint identification and hand geometry require physical contact with the biometric systems for identification. Facial and voice biometrics, in comparison, can establish an individual’s identity without any established contact between the person and the system. The non-intrusive features give these technologies an edge over other biometric modalities. Successful government and commercial implementations are encouraging the adoption of face and voice biometric technologies in the field of Information Security. Voice biometrics, which is widely used in password reset application in enterprise IT help desk and customer care operations, is especially poised to witness growth. Voice biometrics is expected to evolve into a mainstream commercial user authentication technology in a range of customer-facing applications.

In the United States, the market outlook remains bright against the backdrop of growing focus on tightening security measures in defense, customs and border protection, banking, and healthcare sectors.
