EyeLock has announced a strategic partnership with VOXX Electronics to launch myiris, a USB-enabled iris identity authentication device.
Shown off at CES 2014 in Las Vegas this week, myiris is a small circular USB peripheral that works by converting users’ iris patterns to a code unique for authentication. Specifically, the device uses EyeLock’s video based iris authentication technology and stores dual-iris patterns for up to five users.
“Fraud and identity theft cost businesses and consumers millions every year. Companies large and small have struggled to provide a level of security that protects against this,” Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics said. “With myris, any business regardless of size can protect itself from fraud and any consumer can protect the thing that is most important, their personal information and their identity.”
“Eyelock is the only iris authentication technology to employ fast motion video and dual eye authentication, allowing us to provide a more seamless, simple and user-friendly experience, with unparalleled levels of security,” Jim Demitrieus, CEO of EyeLock said. “Partnering with VOXX Electronics guarantees our technology will reach the broadest possible audience and propel digital security into the next era.”
The company also recently launched an iris recognition SDK.
