Belfast-based biometrics company B-Secur announced that it has been named one of Gartner’s global Cool Vendors for 2016. The firm’s biometric technology uses an individual’s heart beat (ECG) for security authentication.
In a recent Gartner report, B-Secur was highlighted alongside three other disruptive technologies which it considers as “Cool Vendors” – the ones to watch – in terms of interesting innovation in human-machine interface.
The research and advisory company stated that “B-Secur’s technology is cool because it leverages something that everyone possesses (a unique heartbeat wave pattern) to strengthen existing mechanisms for securing and accessing logical and physical systems such as banking payment cards to airport employee access control, from monitoring armed forces in the field, to children in the playground.”
