In the report, Gartner analysts highlight several products and services that integrate mobile capabilities and security measures into digital business strategies.
“Small devices are capable of holding large amounts of potentially sensitive information, and keeping that information safe and preventing unauthorized access is of the utmost importance to IT organizations in many industries,” said the report authors.
EyeVerify’s Eyeprint ID technology uses the front-facing camera on iPhone and Android phones to capture an image of the eye and matches the unique vein pattern to verify the user’s identity.
The solution automatically authenticates users if their eye image matches the eyeprint registered with the device.
EyeVerify says that Eyeprint ID is the only biometric that protects data using a high entropy encryption key, which is comparable to a 50-character complex password.
“The market need to secure sensitive information on mobile devices, in a convenient and private way, is the driving force behind Eyeprint ID,” said Toby Rush, CEO and founder of EyeVerify. “We believe that recognition in the Cool Vendor report by Gartner validates our focus on using the smartphone itself to authenticate users, providing payment grade protection for mobile data and transactions.”
Previously reported, EyeVerify announced that three independent organizations have conducted extensive accuracy testing on its Eyeprint ID, in which the biometrics solution performed at accuracy levels that meet the market need for secure mobile authentication for password replacement, medical prescriptions and mobile payments.
