Several startups offering such an approach have emerged. One example is the US-player Precognitive: its solution performs a context-aware, real-time assessment of device and connection, couples device intelligence with user-specific behavioral data and biometrics, employs Artificial Intelligence (AI) to analyze device- and user-entered information to analyze it in real-time. Precognitive currently focuses on use cases in banking & financial technology, travel & entertainment, and e-commerce.
The solution of FST Biometrics, also from the USA, combines visual identification technologies, including facial recognition and behavior analytics, to identify users at a distance and on the move. Its solution supports physical access to financial and educational institutions, corporate and residential buildings, healthcare facilities, clubs, as well as sports and entertainment venues.
Biocatch, a biometrics startup from Israel (total funding of US$ 41.6 million) employs continuous biometric authentication to protect users and enterprises from identity theft.
According to our own analysis of solution offerings from 60 technology providers offering biometrics-based user identification, we will initially see most use cases/implementations in financial services, enterprise/workforce management (access to buildings, company systems, software), health care (e.g., patient identification and tracking, remote patient access), public services (e.g, personal identification for government applications), and e-commerce/retail.
