The information era brought with it a lot of needs for personalized approaches to data security and access management. Individuals and organizations are continually making efforts to develop systems aimed at achieving the highest possible data security and accessibility options.
Among the commonly used approaches to password creation are “something you know “and something you are.” In something you know techniques, users are required to key-in passwords they can easily remember or keep. Both approaches rely heavily on physiological and behavioral characteristics of the users.
Technology advancements of any nature sweep across all elements. If business put in higher security measures to data access, hackers will also upgrade their techniques. It is in this view that a combination of physiological biometric and behavioral biometrics is being developed to enhance data and access to security.
The demand for advanced security features creates an opportunity for security professionals to create security features that combine physiological biometrics, behavioral biometrics and password authentication.
It must be considered that even the most advanced technologies such as biometrics are still prone to hackers’ attacks. At the same time, the installation cost of top-notch biometric readers is way out of reach for many organizations. This poses a challenge which calls for professionals to come up with an enhanced security system that is also cost-effective.
