Behavioral biometrics is a technology that analyzes measurable patterns in human activities. These patterns include mouse activity, keystroke movement, and device movement. Behavioral biometrics identifies interactive gestures such as how individuals type on a keyboard, how they use the mouse, how they move the device, and how they touch the screen.
Physical biometrics involves fingerprints or iris patterns, whereas, behavioral biometrics continuously evaluates a user’s ongoing interaction with their devices. Behavioral biometrics discriminates between a legitimate user and a cybercriminal by identifying unique patterns in human activities.
Financial institutions, businesses, and government facilities are using behavioral biometrics for payments, online banking, and secure authentication. The behavioral biometrics market is expected to accelerate rapidly as products and services are moving into advanced digital security beyond simple passwords and pin codes.
