Biometric technology may become a very prominent part of the mobile commerce world
Advanced biometric technology could play a major role in the future of mobile commerce and security. NXT-ID, a company that specializes in biometric technology, will be attending a new business event that has been formed to promote the use of smart technologies in the North American market. This technology is becoming quite prominent, because it serves as a way to improve the security of mobile devices. Mobile security has become a major priority for those that are participating in mobile commerce.
NXT-ID to highlight new technology at upcoming event
At the event, NXT-ID’s chief technology officer, David Tunnell, will be speaking about the issues that exist in the digital world. Tunnell will make note of technologies that have been designed to protect private information and how these technologies can be used in a convenient manner. Attention will be brought to NXT-ID’s own solution, called MobileBio, which has been developed to mitigate consumer risks in the realm of mobile commerce and computing.
Biological information could keep consumers safe
Biometric technology is gaining momentum in the mobile commerce industry because of its ability to protect consumer information. This technology uses biological information to safeguard mobile services and devices. This information can be a fingerprint, a person’s voice, or even their eyes, as biometric scanners can be used to collect this information. This information can then be used to unlock a mobile device or authenticate a mobile payment.
Mobile security continues to be a problematic issue for the mobile commerce market
Mobile security remains as one of the greatest challenges in the mobile commerce field. The market has become a target for malicious groups that will take advantage of consumer information by exploiting the weaknesses of some mobile commerce platforms. Biometric technology could help resolve this issue, as obtaining biological information is considerably more difficult for hackers than it is to steal digitally. While biometric technology may help resolve many security issues, the technology does not exist as an absolute defense against threats.
