 According to Transparency Research, a next generation provider of syndicated research, the global video surveillance and video surveillance as a service (VSaaS) market is expanding at a CAGR of 17.0% from 2016 to 2024. By the end of 2024 it is expected to rise above US$88 bn, after being valued around US$21 bn in 2015.

 MobileBio FaceMatch is a modular facial recognition technology that can be provisioned to compliment a variety of video surveillance and VSaaS platforms including smartphones, tablets, laptops and desktop computers. Depending on the number of cameras available and level of security desired, FaceMatch uses advanced facial recognition algorithms to allow the user access to their device, data, or door.

 The technology can be hosted on the device or configured to access cloud computing for remote authentication via NXT-ID's BioCloud Authentication and Identity Management Services. The technology will also soon be available as an "app" on the iPhone and Android platforms.
