Hoyos Labs has just announced that it has won a 2014 Frost & Sullivan’s 2014 North American Customer Value Leadership Award for mobile biometrics.
Specifically, the company’s biometric identity assertion platform, HoyosID, uses smartphone cameras to capture iris and facial biometric data to authenticate its users. This is the technology that prompted the award.
“We are honored to receive this prestigious award from Frost & Sullivan, which recognizes efficacy and demand for a solution as impactful as HoyosID,” Hector Hoyos, CEO of Hoyos Labs said. “This award is especially important to us as it highlights our commitment to the customer and user. HoyosID was developed first and foremost as a way to make a person’s life easier; it is extremely convenient and makes people’s online lives more secure. At Hoyos Labs, we feel that for any new technology to be successful, it must place the customer experience first.”
“Hoyos Labs exceeds customer expectations for user identity authentication and offers a secure environment to its customers in different data-dependent organizations,” Frost & Sullivan said in giving the award to Hoyos Labs. “The HoyosID has successfully delivered a best-in-class experience to end users. Frost & Sullivan notes that this product is user-friendly, hack proof, and eliminates the need to remember usernames and passwords.”
Recently, Hoyos gave a $78,000 research grant to Villanova University for work in the area of computer security focusing on identity assertion, role gathering, adjudication and access control.
