Synaptics Introduces Multi -Factor Biometric Fusion Engine

Synaptics to launch a Biometric Fusion Engine combining fingerprint and facial expression

United States: US based human interface solution developer, Synaptics, has come up with an all-new ‘Multi-factor’ Biometric Fusion Engine which will be incorporating a choice of fingerprint or facial expression for granting access to a mobile phone.

The Synaptics Natural ID Fingerprint sensors would be incorporated with the Biometric Fusion Engine which would provide the accessibility of using both fingerprint and facial biometrics. In addition, this fusion system will also enable the users to choose the method of access as per their convenience.

The Synaptics Multi-Factor Fusion Engine is supported by SentryPoint technology, which comprises of highly secured features like Quantum Matcher with PurePrint anti-spoof technology. This technology will help in distinguishing between fake and actual fingerprints. The facial-region feature of the biometric engine also uses anti-spoofing tools and has the potential of checking the combinations of eye blinking and head movements for enhanced security.

TechSci Research depicts that the introduction of the company’s Multi- Factor Biometric Fusion Engine will help in improving the security of various devices across the globe. Moreover, the adoption of the fusion engine will also help in providing the users with better results as compared to the typed passwords.

According to a recent published report by TechSci ResearchGlobal Biometrics Market By Type (Fingerprint Recognition, Facial Recognition, Hand/Palm Recognition, Iris Scanner, Voice Recognition, Vein Scanner & Others), By End Use Sector, By Region, Competition Forecast and Opportunities, 2011 – 2021, the global biometrics market is projected to cross US $ 24.8 billion by 2021. Fingerprint recognition biometric systems are the most preferred type of biometric systems used across the globe, owing to their ease of use, low cost, high speed and accurate results. However, in terms of growth, vein scanner biometrics systems segment is anticipated to outpace fingerprint recognition biometrics systems over the next five years. In 2015, North America dominated the global biometrics market, and the region is anticipated to maintain its dominance over the next five years as well.
