Let’s all geek out for a minute…

… and talk about the Top 10 Tech predictions for 2015. Yeah, this shizzle gets me excited. Biometrics and tokenisation lead the list in the whitepaper available for free download from the Hampshire-based Juniper Research website.

In the wake of a number of high profile security breaches, they say cloud service providers need to regain trust (at both the enterprise and consumer level). Expect to see an increasing array of companies investing in encryption and tokenisation solutions as a means of reducing the risk of data loss or theft during 2015.

As with tokenisation, biometrics are increasingly perceived as a key way to enhance end-user identification and transactional authentication, across an array of technologies. In mobile, the combination of Apple Pay with Touch ID is perhaps the most high-profile example, but we envisage that markets where the mobile device is already used for personal authentication (such as Scandinavia and the Baltic states) will rapidly incorporate biometrics as an additional factor. The technology is also entering the card space: biometric technology developer IDEX has recently agreed to provide fingerprint sensor technology to Card Tech for incorporation into a digital card.

The Top 10 Tech Trends whitepaper also has more detail on the following topics:

2. Wrist Wearables Smarten Up, and Know Their Limits
3. 2015 – The Year of NFC (At Last!)
4. All About the Data!
5. Leading Retailers to Facilitate Cryptocurrency Payment
6. Attack of the Drones
7. Consumers Take Control of their Own (Digital) Health
8. Budget Phablets, Smartphones Go Global
9. Location Based Services Move Indoors
10. Deep Linking to Become Standard Across Apps
