Biometric Fingerprinting and Password Independence


[youtube=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W8iCNu4Fy9U&w=440&h=385] This last week, Validity Inc, a company that makes fingerprint scanners for PCs and mobile devices made a splash when the SEC released a report which indicated that the biometric startup had raised 12.6 million dollars in it's most recent round of funding. Though I haven't had the opportunity to test Validity's suite of sensor technology, feedback available online and within mobile technology communities has been--thus far--resoundingly positive. Whether or not this company is poised to be the gorilla in the market for mobile security is yet to be seen, however, the enthusiasm for the companies product has established a real need for more effective mobile security solutions. As corporations move towards relying upon mobile phones exclusively for business, the need for uncompromised mobile security services will continue to be an imperative and the look and feel of Validity's product seems to be about right on the money. It's like something from the Matrix, simply flick your finger across the screen and voila, you're either granted or denied access.
