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:

The typical fingerprint reader application has been lowest common denominator access to the device, but you still have to worry about applications. What if someone leaves the device on in the back of a cab? Smartphones increasingly have access to critical information.
