Eyeprint ID, from EyeVerify, uses existing 1+ MP smartphone cameras to image and pattern match the unique pattern of eye veins and other micro features in and around the eye. According to a statement by the company, it is the only biometric that protects user data with a high entropy encryption key, equivalent to a 50-character complex password.
“EyeVerify is one of the highest standards of mobile-friendly security and built perfectly for the financial services industry: secure and frictionless,” said Bianca Lopes, VP Strategic Marketing and Global Alliances at BioConnect. “We are proud to partner, and can’t wait for the possibilities that come with this as we, together, fundamentally change how we verify our identity in financial applications and combat fraud.”
BioConnect began to build out its BioConnect Identity Platform 7 years ago, primarily focusing on security and physical access control. Its efforts developing strong relationships and integrations with leaders in physical access control resulted in the accumulation of an infrastructure of over 20 strong integrations “to the door.” The subsequent build out of a hardware and device agnostic platform will enable biometric authentication in the physical and digital world. This enables large enterprises to consume all biometrics as an authentication strategy without changing existing legacy infrastructure.
Chris Barnett, EVP Global Sales and Marketing at EyeVerify, commented, “We fully believe in BioConnect’s Quest for Rightful Identity, and are pleased to be included in their mobile platform. We think Eyeprint ID is a perfect fit for BioConnect customers seeking convenient, private and secure authentication.”
