Biometrics Industry News Roundup: Time Tracking, Mobility and Money

Biometric Time TrackingThis week  at FindBiometrics we reported on time and attendance applications, new biometric deployments in finance, developments in the mobile markets and more from a wide range of modalities and regions.

Here are the top Industry News stories from the past week.

Finance

One of the biggest news items of the year was the announcement that MasterCard and Zwipe have combined forces to bring fingerprint authentication to point of sale credit card transactions. This week the pilot of the technology, which was taking place in Norway, was successfully completed and we learned where to expect the biometric credit cards to pop up next. Meanwhile, Amex embraced fingerprint authentication for its mobile app and Crossmatch announced that First Bank has implemented its biometric technology.
