EyeVerify launches updated version of EyePrint ID
EyeVerify Inc. today will release EyePrint ID v2.0, the second version of the firm’s patented technology that eliminates the need to use passwords on mobile devices, at the Money 20/20 event in Las Vegas this week. EyeVerify will provide demonstrations of the new technology at the Aria Hotel at Starvine 10 at 10:30 am PT.
EyeVerify’s patented Eyeprint ID technology uses built-in cameras in today’s mobile devices to image and then pattern match the blood vessels in the whites of users’ eyes for highly accurate, fast and convenient mobile identity protection. The new version features a natural, seamless user experience with an incredibly fast authentication time for smart devices, as fast as 800 milliseconds, which is instantaneous from a users’ perspective.
As explained by EyeVerify staff, the new technology does not require you to move your eyes around for authentication purposes. The new EyePrint ID release allows users to now simply gaze straight into their phone’s camera.
“Mobile users and content providers alike are looking for secure, convenient and private measures to protect their phones and valuable data. People and companies are embracing biometrics replacing passwords on mobile devices. The latest version of Eyeprint ID is the fastest, most secure and most affordable option available,” stated Toby Rush, CEO and Founder of EyeVerify.
EyeVerify is the only company to offer this highly secure and scalable approach to identity verification that requires no additional hardware and eliminates the need for passwords. Currently in final beta, Eyeprint ID v2.0 will be commercially available in early January 2015 across iOS and Android devices and apps.
As reported previously in BiometricUpdate.com, EyeVerify recently completed a funding round led by Qihoo 360, Wells Fargo and Sprint. Also reported last year in BiometricUpdate.com, EyeVerify patented a new spoof detection technique for biometric authentication. BiometricUpdate.com’s exclusive interview with CEO Toby Rush last month revealed that this technique would added into this latest release of EyePrint ID.
