Validity Sensors launches new mobile authentication platform

Categories Biometrics News

Validity Sensors has launched a new Mobile Natural ID Platform, which it says enables customized sensors in a wide range of shapes, sizes and colors based on its own patented architecture.

“Fingerprint sensors and other biometric authentication technologies are loaded with mass market potential. These technologies can bring a safe and personalized connected mobile experience,” Ben Bajarin, principal at Creative Strategies said.  “With the integration options available for these new technologies, and the rapid industry adoption of enhanced security features, we expect OEMs to aggressively innovate in this area.”

Building on its LiveFlex technology, Validity’s new Mobile Natural ID Platform includes a sensing element separate from the silicon IC, which the company says provides virtually unlimited mobile integration options.  Its flexible architecture allows for a range of solutions, including invisible, under-glass sensors, as well as customizable buttons of any shape, size, and color.

“The clean integration of Natural ID fingerprint sensors will change the way consumers interact with their always-connected mobile devices,” Michael Maia, vice president of sales and marketing at Validity said.  “With a simple touch of the finger, people will securely access their devices and personal digital content in a very intuitive way.  Because of this user experience shift, the widespread adoption of fingerprint sensors in consumer electronics is undeniable.”

The Validity Mobile Natural ID Platform includes complete SDKs for Android Jelly Bean, Windows, and Linux.

Reported previously, Lenovo recently selected Validity Sensors as the strategic supplier of fingerprint sensors for its comsumer and enterprise-class notebooks and peripherals.

Last year, Intel Capital made a significant strategic investment into the company.
