Tech startup Qondado LLC announced it has released KodeKey, an online public user verification application for iOS and Android that links the user’s mobile number to their device based on biometrics, serving as a hardware authorization token.
Using KodeKey, customer service agents can request that users swipe their fingerprint on their KodeKey-enabled device to authenticate their identity.
Companies can use the KodeKey web service via a simple web API that can be integrated into established enterprise services.
KodeKey is designed for use by a range of organizations, including banks, credit card companies, cable providers, wireless providers and cloud services, according to Qondado.
The company said it expects KodeKey to become a “popular option for second factor authentication integration.”
Additionally, the free KodeKey WordPress Login Plugin is also available at the company’s web site.
“Qondado is a startup in the heart of San Juan, Puerto Rico’s tech emergence,” said Qondado CEO Edward Robles, “We have a roadmap of innovative new technologies starting with KodeKey, in the cloud and file security space that we are confident will establish our leadership in the emerging PR tech culture as well as introduce new ways to think about how we meet security challenges in the cloud.”
Founded in 2015, Qondado provides a range of cyber security products for user verification and access authorization.
