Why the use of biometrics, increases security?



The global #biometric systems market is expected to grow rapidly in the coming years, reaching a size of US$68.6 billion by 2025.

More and more #digital transactions are present in the day to day of any person. From financial transactions through applications developed by banks, to simple supermarket purchases made through the Internet. The experience of any user in this way of doing digital business benefits when they are certain that their transactions are secure and are not falling into the hands of fraudulent portals or applications when they have to share their personal data.


What do companies and even governments rely on to ensure that their digital transactions are secure? The answer involves various aspects of #security levels that can be used and paid for, but where most converge to provide greater security to their customers and/or users, is in the use of biometric data in their digital transactions. Biometric systems allow people and/or documents to be authenticated, verifying their behavioral and/or physiological traits. The biometrics that use the verification of physiological traits have a wide spectrum of verification, since this type of traits do not change over time. Among this type of biometrics are: #faceRecognition, #fingerprint and #irisRecognition. Within behavioral biometrics are #voiceRecognition and #SignatureRecognition. Corroborating the authenticity of the user through their fingerprint, their voice, their signature and even the iris of their eye, increases security since it is more difficult to violate the identity of users.


The form of verification of biometric systems to authenticate people and documents is what makes them a very important pillar in security issues in this new digital age. Here we show you some of the most important points that make the different Biometrics increase the security of the systems that integrate them:


  • Face Recognition: It corroborates different parameters at the same time such as: age, gender, state of mind, among others, so it is difficult to violate due to the different parameters that it compares.


  • Fingerprint: Since each person's fingerprint is unique and unrepeatable, it becomes a powerful security biometric. Even more so when not only a single finger is recognized, but also being able to have the recognition of one or several fingers at the same time.


  • Iris Recognition: Each person's eye is unique, and its characteristics do not change over time, which is why iris recognition is one of the most powerful biometrics that can be integrated into a security system.


  • Signature Recognition: Being able to identify that a signature is genuine, evaluating its speed, pressure and consistency, avoiding frauds of forgery of signatures and therefore of identity.


  • Voice Recognition: Through various voice samples, the user's identity can be verified, recording speed, diction, emphasis, decibels, treble and bass.


In conclusion, in this new digital era, the use of biometrics is setting the standard to increase the security of the applications and systems that use them; since each one has strong data protection systems, and if they interact, they make a powerful combination that increases the security of customers and users, and therefore improves their experience in digital transactions.
