Fingerprint access control system is a keyless entry system to a place or a resource. Fingerprint system reads the print of the finger and matches it to digital print image stored in database to allow access to authorized individual.
Increasing incidences of identity theft and security breaches across the globe are major factors driving growth of the global fingerprint access control system market. In addition, stringent government regulations and mandates has further boosted demand for fingerprint accesses control systems and solutions which are expected to further drive growth of the global fingerprint access control system market. Increasing adoption of fingerprint access control systems in various industries such as BFSI, healthcare, chemicals, etc. and also by commercial, government, and residential buildings are further fueling growth of the global fingerprint access control system market. Moreover, increasing adoption of fingerprint scanner by smartphones for various functions is further propelling growth of the global fingerprint access control system market.
Rising information vulnerability and data security concerns are key factors hampering growth of the global fingerprint access control system market. In addition, inability of system to identify specific person owing to faulty sensors, coupled with growing trend of multimodal authentication systems that use two or more step verification which includes iris recognition, face recognition, voice recognition etc. are some other factors expected to further hamper growth of the global fingerprint access control system market. Technological advancements to provide low cost and more secure access control systems may create lucrative opportunities for major players in the global fingerprint access control system market over the forecast period.
The global fingerprint access control system market is segmented on the basis of technology, application, and region. On the basis of region, the global fingerprint access control system market is segmented into North America, Europe, Asia Pacific, Latin America, and Middle East & Africa.
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.
