“Right now, in 2014, we are seeing mobile devices, wearable technologies and biometrics converging across all industries, from access control to banking to retail and we are well-positioned to become an integral player in what is becoming the hottest industry across the globe.”

Reported previously in, Zwipe also recently announced that it received a new product award from the Security Industry Association at ISC West, which took place in Las Vegas.

The FIDO specifications support a range of authentication technologies, platforms and mobile devices.
