AOptix has just made its AOptix Stratus Client SDK available for iOS development.
The stratus is the first comprehensive mobile identity solution “made for iPhone” delivering iris, fingerprint, voice and face recognition as an integrated solution. According to the company, the new client SDK unlocks the full potential of the Stratus platform’s open architecture and now means that systems integrators and resellers can now leverage the company’s technology.
“The response to the launch of Stratus has been extremely positive and we’re already seeing strong traction in the market,” Chuck Yort, Vice President and General Manager of Identity Solutions at AOptix said. “We gave several partners early access to the SDK and they have already developed some truly innovative applications on top of the AOptix Stratus platform. With this comprehensive and robust SDK now broadly available, developers and systems integrators can jumpstart their application development to meet their customers’ specific needs and capitalize on the surging global demand for accurate Smart Mobile Identity.”
CACI International Inc, a leading information solutions and services provider, is using the AOptix SDK to develop custom solutions, based on AOptix Stratus, for the U.S. Department of Defense.
Reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, AOptix, along with CACI International was recently awarded a research contract form the U.S. Defense Department to examine its Smart Mobile Identity biometrics identification package and to eventually provide the department with a smartphone solution for biometric capture.
“Smart Mobile Identity benefits our customers by leveraging the security of Apple’s iOS mobile devices in providing our soldiers with biometric identification, identity management and mobile based enterprise data analytics that were previously not possible. The weight savings of this capability, coupled with the convergence of secure technologies available to the iPhone, have proven to be popular with customers. AOptix’s SDK and open platform approach enable us to rapidly integrate input from the DoD and develop a product that is ready for full-scale deployment,” Ken Asbury, President and Chief Executive Officer of CACI said.
