20 percent of enterprises to use Biometric Access Control for enhanced security by 2016
Biometric Access Control and multi-factor authentication could be used by up to 20 percent of enterprises by 2016, a recent report by IDC has forecast.
In its FutureScape for Security report, the research company has addressed security concerns in a number of technology areas, including biometric identification and user management.
The report predicts that in 2015, 15% of mobile devices that have biometric capabilities will be accessed biometrically. This figure will grow significantly to 50% by 2020.
Regarding the issue of user management, IDC predicts that 20% of enterprises will use multi-factor authentication as their primary method of access control to sensitive accounts by 2016.
“IDC believes that IT security decisions should be made with a better understanding of the existing trends and opportunities,” said Charles Kolodgy, IDC research VP of security products. “IDC’s security research team has identified ten strategic security decision imperatives enterprises must address over the next several years. The decision imperatives are all designed to move enterprise security from being relative towards being proactive.”
