As we’ve noted in BiometricUpdate.com, Fingerprint Cards has announced several design-wins in China and Japan, as well as a third Asian country in the last 6 months.
With clear advantages to the mobile security market, Fingerprint Cards is very active in this space. A new report on the global mobile security market has recently been published and it’s suggested that the value of the global mobile security market will reach US$3.49 billion this year.
According to the report, the mobile security market is set for substantial growth over the next five years as research shows that the increased proliferation of smart mobile devices is driving a market for complementary mobile services in management and security.
