ImageWare Systems Publishes Latest Market Insights on Biometric User Authentication Featuring Gartner Research

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - May 9, 2016) - ImageWare Systems, Inc. (ImageWare or IWS) (OTCQB: IWSY), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has made available a published newsletter, "Mobile Biometric User Authentication as a Service, Solving your Password Problems with Multi-Modal Biometrics." The newsletter features research from Gartner, a world leading information technology research and advisory company.

The newsletter is designed to provide IT and business executives with a truly unique understanding of the user authentication market. It describes how mobile biometric user authentication will transform today's business by safeguarding customer security, protecting brand equity and adding to business' bottom lines.

Some key themes highlighted within the report include:

  • Major data breaches are commonplace today, with a high risk of identity theft and financial loss.
  • Passwords are insecure, yet authentication is a key requirement for securing today's enterprise.
  • The user authentication market spans an increasingly wide variety of technologies and vendors, with mobile and cloud as key drivers.

"In addition to saving costs, using biometric authentication within your organization reduces the risk of data breaches and improves staff productivity," said Jim Miller, chairman & CEO of ImageWare. "We encourage you to proactively implement innovative solutions for your customers before your competitors do. The early movers gain and retain the majority of the market share with new, disruptive technologies and biometrics is the greatest disruptive technology on the scene today!"

As stated in Gartner's most recent Market Guide on User Authentication, February 2016, "Cloud-based services grow faster than the overall growth for this market for operational reasons, as well as macroeconomic trends that constrain staffing and support for on-premise solutions."
