OLA providing GoVerifyID biometric authentication solution to online auction members

July 6, 2015 - 

Beginning next month, ImageWare Systems, Inc. will be providing its patented GoVerifyID mobile biometric security software to OnlineAuction’s 200,000 online auction members.

GoVerifyID is the premier mobile biometric authentication product in the biometric industry, and we are pleased to partner with an equally premier provider of online auction services,” said Jim Miller, chairman and CEO of ImageWare. “We look forward to delivering both ease and speed of service to their several hundred thousand users.”

OnlineAuction provides online auctioning services throughout the world and is positioned to expand later this year as it enters the Asia-Pacific marketplace.

The online auction provider’s members will be able to use biometric authentication to access their accounts via voice and facial recognition.

OnlineAuction.com will use the IWS product under a software-as-a-service agreement, in which it will pay a monthly service fee.

“OLA customers have long appreciated our quality, service and integrity,” said Chris Fain, president of OnlineAuctions.com. “To that list, we now add the option of state-of-the-art security for our users via ImageWare’s GoVerifyID. This technology will ease the log in and use process, as well as provide a quick, safe and efficient alternative to passwords.”

The 12-month contract is estimated to be valued at about $3.6 million, following delivery, said ImageWare.

Previously reported, ImageWare Systems, Inc. was awarded patents in Canada and Australia for technology used in its multimodal biometric ID and authorization system.
