What is Biometrics? How is it used in security?

If you want to keep your data secure, you’ll need more than just a password to log in. Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) is an authentication system that validates a user’s identity using two or more distinct procedures rather than just a username and password combination.

Many personal and commercial security solutions are incorporating biometrics as an advanced layer for MFA. To put it simply, biometrics are biological measurements — or physical features — that can be used to identify individuals. Fingerprint mapping, facial recognition, and retina scanning, for example, are all examples of biometric technology, although these are only the most well-known.

Read below to learn more about how biometric security can help enterprises defend against identity theft, cyberattacks, and data breaches by preventing unauthorized access to apps and sensitive data.
