NEC maintains position as biometric technology leader in global benchmark
NEC has once again proven its global leadership in the latest 2022 Frost & Sullivan Radar for Biometrics, demonstrating continued growth and expertise in deploying human-rights first biometrics and digital identity solutions.
The achievement is recognition of NEC’s commitment to strengthen its biometrics solutions portfolio that supports customers in more than 70 countries and regions worldwide with responsible, secure and ethical technology.
The ranking comes off the back of NEC’s work in relation to the expansion of edge-enabled biometric touchpoints for physical and digital access; the creation and provision of its extensive Bio-IDiom multimodal platform and services capability; and the further integration of its NeoFace facial biometric as a core function for multiple identity applications in both the physical and digital applications.
NEC’s world leading biometrics technology was also recently showcased on an episode of the Nine Network’s ‘Under Investigation’ in which NEC’s cutting-edge biometrics and facial recognition software identified the key person of interest in a disappearance case from Adelaide Oval in 1973.
NEC ANZ President and CEO Jason Price said it was an honour to achieve overall Growth and Innovation Leadership for yet another year, recognising NEC’s biometric solutions as enhancing the security landscape of digital identities and fundamentally protecting the digital identities of citizens.
“Our global expertise and applications make us acutely aware of privacy concerns and varying government regulations around the use of biometrics technologies, and as a result we have placed privacy, security and trust at the heart of our technology solutions,” Mr Price said.
"We believe that the biometrics market is poised for significant growth in the coming years, and we are excited to be at the forefront of this transformation. We are continuing to innovate and invest in our biometric technologies to meet the evolving needs of our customers.”
Frost & Sullivan forecast that the biometrics solutions industry will achieve a compound annual growth rate of 14.5 per cent by 2030. In this growth environment, ensuring trust and legitimacy between government, providers and communities has never been more important.
Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager, Commercial & Public Security Danielle VanZandt said that NEC’s ongoing leadership in the biometric solutions industry reflects the organisation’s ability to meet existing and new customer demands and empower end users to take control over their biometric data.
“NEC continues to steer the biometric industry into the next phase of growth,” said Ms VanZandt.
