If you want to protect your company’s assets with the latest up-and-coming technology, biometric security devices are the way to go. Why? Because biometric security provides the most secure level of protection by requiring physical proof that an authorized individual has accessed an area, rather than just a password or keycard.

Plus, the time is now to adopt this technology – If you want your company protected against the threat of a data security breach – and who doesn’t want that?

According to a report conducted by Research and Markets, the global biometrics market was at about $5.2 billion in 2012. And get this: By 2019,that number is expected to grow to a staggering $16.7 billion. That’s a growth rate of over 200 percent in just seven years – growth that, according to the report, is and will continue to be largely driven by the digital storage of sensitive information.

So what does this mean for you? That you shouldn’t wait till 2019 to incorporate biometrics into your company’s security plans when you could already be benefiting from this top-of-the-line security, now.
