The advent of biometrics means passwords soon will be a thing of the past, says Bob Long of Daon.
“Biometrics is real,” he says. “It’s here, and it’s being used today. Passwords are going away.”
Long participated in Tuesday’s “Speed Rounds” at the CUNA Tech/OpSS Council Conference in Orlando on Tuesday.
Speed Rounds, a series of product pitches, gives presenting vendors seven minutes apiece to describe the purpose and functionality of their products and answer questions from the audience.
Attendees vote on the presentations, and the winner among the 22 participating vendors will be announced shortly.
Long says USAA introduced Daon’s IdentityX biometrics platform in January. It can authenticate users by facial and vocal recognition, and more than one million people now use it to access their accounts.
