Tyco partners with EyeLock to offer customers iris identity authentication technology


Tyco Integrated Security (TycoIS) announced that it will partner with EyeLock LLC to offer iris identity authentication technology to its customers.

This partnership will see TycoIS provide its high-security customers with advanced access control. According to a statement by the company, EyeLock’s technology represents a breakthrough in proprietary software, security, algorithms and optics, and delivers the most secure, reliable and user-friendly capabilities available in the market today.

“TycoIS is committed to offering innovative solutions and advanced technology to meet our customer’s unique needs,” said Joe Oliveri, vice president and general manager, Tyco Integrated Security. “EyeLock’s technology is a welcomed addition to our access control offerings. It helps provide more accurate identification and authorization of personnel, which can be integrated and operate on our platforms, offering the potential for greater value and confidence for our customers.”

The iris authentication technology utilizes dual-eye authentication and looks at more than 240 unique iris characteristics. EyeLock’s portable template allows mobile-enabled users the convenience of hands-free and true two-factor authentication. As users get within range, the mobile device automatically sends their template to the reader via Bluetooth and access is granted if their iris is matched. The combination with TycoIS’ proven experience in access control integration can help provide more safety and security benefits for customers.

“For EyeLock, this partnership marks a major milestone in the growth and widespread market adoption of iris-based identity authentication as the game-changing biometric measure in the field of security and access control,” said Anthony Antolino, chief marketing and business development officer, EyeLock. “We are excited to offer our Iris Identity Authentication Technology to TycoIS customers and showcase the benefits of next-generation security solutions.”
