HYPR Corp. has partnered with EyeVerify to integrate Eyeprint ID payment-grade biometric technology into the HYPR platform giving enterprise customers a powerful and unique biometric sensing modality to achieve increased levels of assurance.
According to a company statement, Eyeprint ID uses any existing 1+ MP smart device camera to image and pattern match the unique blood vessels in the whites of the eye and other micro features in and around the eye and the firm says it is more accurate than face or voice biometrics while being less expensive and more convenient than iris and fingerprint sensors and now with the integration of the HYPR biometric encryption engine, Eyeprint ID supports end-to-end FIDO authentication and biometric OTP as a fully interoperable security solution.
“As a device- and modality-agnostic platform, HYPR supports the best in biometric sensing technologies,” said HYPR Corp. CEO George Avetisov. ”The HYPR-EyeVerify agreement provides customers who want industry-leading biometric technology a turn-key solution through our integrated platform.”
In a statement, HYPR said that its partnership with EyeVerify is another example of how open standards like FIDO UAF are driving secure biometric authentication to create an opportunity-rich ecosystem where interdependent parties align to serve end user preferences, all while safeguarding identity, lowering risk and preserving privacy.
Just last month, HYPR announced a partnership with SpeechPro to integrate its VoiceKey.OnePass multi-modal authentication solution into the HYPR SDK.
