Eyeprint ID now FIDO Certified, 2M unique enrolled devices

January 5, 2016 - 

EyeVerify’s eye-based mobile biometric authentication solution, Eyeprint ID, has been named FIDO Certified by the FIDO (Fast IDentity Online) Alliance.

Eyeprint ID lets users authenticate themselves on their mobile devices by turning a selfie into a digital key in less than a second by using existing smart device cameras to image and pattern match the visible blood vessels and other micro features in and around the eye.

Being FIDO Certified means that Eyeprint ID is fully compliant with the FIDO 1.0 Universal Authentication Framework (UAF) standard and is interoperable with other products and services that support FIDO specifications.

Chris Barnett, EVP Global Sales and Marketing commented: “We are excited about the opportunities that FIDO Alliance Certification brings to our clients — enabling them to easily integrate standardized authentication for their consumers, which in turn saves those consumers from the painful and risky task of password management.”

2M unique enrolled devices

In a recent blog post, EyeVerify announced that it ended the year with 2M unique enrolled devices using EyePrint ID. The company says it is averaging 60k new enrollments and 1.5M verifications weekly.

Last year, EyeVerify saw significant growth through beta launches with Mountain America Credit Union, Vodafone Wallet and select Digital Insight financial institutions. Several additional financial institutions are also testing Eyeprint ID for their mobile apps, with launches scheduled for 2016.

RSA Security also signed a deal in Q4 to incorporate Eyeprint ID into their platform and EyeVerify established partnerships with smartphone manufacturers ZTE, Vivo, Alcatel (TCL) and UMi.

The growing adoption of Eyeprint ID shows increasing user interest in biometric authentication and in eyeprints as an alternative to fingerprint authentication.
