Complimentary Gartner® Report:

2022 Innovation Insight for Biometric Authentication 

According to Gartner, "IAM- and fraud-focused security and risk management leaders should choose biometric methods where the benefits can justify the effort." [1]

Deployment Options: Biometric Authentication

Highlights from the report:

  • "Third-party biometric methods offer greater control over enrollment and configuration, better omnichannel support, and integration with identity proofing. However, they are far less widely used, because of implementation, cost, UX and privacy challenges, both real and imagined." [2]

  • "Device-independent third-party biometric methods may address diversity, equity and inclusion concerns by providing an accessible authentication option for customers and citizens who are potentially marginalized by a market emphasis on smartphone, tablet or PC ownership." [3]

  • "Biometric traits also provide a robust basis for binding other

    authentication credentials to a living person via document-centric identity proofing (DCIP)." [4]
