Biometric devices are security and authentication devices that use biometric sensors to verify an individual's identity. Biometric sensors are fingerprint, voice, and face of a biometric sensor. These sensors read or measure pressure, temperature, light, capacitance or other types of energy.
Increased adoption of biometric identification and authentication methods by various end-use industries, Increasing security factors and duplicate identifications are key drivers of the growth of the global biometric sensor market. In addition, as the demand for biometric sensors increases for various functions such as certification of smart phones, tablets and smart wearables, and heart rate measurement, it has become another factor driving the growth of the global biometric sensor market. Application of biometric technology in finger and facial scanning solutions for security, banking and security.
An important factor in the growth of the global biometric sensor market is the privacy and identity replication of biometric data. In addition, high investment in R & D is another key factor in the growth of the global biometric sensor market.
Various industry practitioners are adopting multi-mode or multi-factor authentication, which is a trend in the current market. Therefore, biometric sensors are used in research and medical labs, commercial and residential buildings and smart weapons. The global biometric sensor market is categorized by sensor type, application, end use industry and region.
Email fraud is nothing new, but online criminals have become ever more-effective at spoofing their identities to trick employees into sending them money. The Australian Centre for Cyber Security (ACSC) recorded losses of over $20M to business email compromise (BEC) attacks last year alone, up 230 percent over the previous year – and the full amount is certain to be much larger.

No matter how robust your security, or how diligent your employees, network credentials are a free pass for cybercriminals. This is mostly because employees are relied upon for their own password management. And with more than 4.8 billion sets of stolen credentials said to be available online, odds are that at least a few of your employees’ user IDs and passwords are just waiting to be used by unscrupulous outsiders. Are you ready to stop them?
