The good thing about authentication that relies on your retina, fingerprint or face is that it doesn’t need to be alphanumeric and cryptic. That is secure convenience in a nutshell — to be able to pay for candy by staring at a screen or deposit a check with the swipe of a finger. A major overhaul in the world of digital identity is the decided death of passwords — and the PYMNTS Digital Identity TrackerTM tracks the road to it.
Emergence of Unified Identity
Technology’s victory is marked by convenience. Sometimes it might mean eliminating processes — and at other times it could mean integrating some. This edition of the tracker features schemes that are integrating different digital identities onto a platform, such as a universal ID card which acts as a driver’s license, a travel ID and a health card.
The January edition of the Digital Identity Tracker, includes six new companies: Arxan, GlobalSign, IDology, Kount, Salt Group and Shift4. There were also updates to three companies. 3Delta Systems was updated with information on Customer/Volume. Agnitio and First Data were each updated with new information on Geographies.
