According to EnterpriseMobileToday, more smartphones will soon come equipped with a new security feature: biometric fingerprint recognition.

In fact, BIO-Key International has plans to unveil its first mobile biometric identification and authentication platform for enterprises later this month. Oracle, CA and IBM are already incorporating BIO-Key's offering.

Randy Fodero, senior vice president of sales at BIO-Key, explains:
