EyeVerify launches cloud ID platform in Asia, rebrands to Zoloz
EyeVerify is now providing its cloud-based identification solution for the underserved and underbanked people in Asia, according to a company blog post written by founder and CEO Toby Rush.
Since being acquired by Ant Financial Services Group last September, Rush said the company as expanded worldwide with new customers in North America, Europe and Asia; made strategic partnerships, and increased its investment in research and product development.
By integrating Eyeprint ID into Alipay’s lifestyle app, Rush said the company has become the “leading software-based mobile biometric authentication solution capable of securing tens of millions of consumers’ online data and transactions daily”.
EyeVerify is now providing a hosted identity platform that helps people manage their digital lives.
The platform centers around the notion that the user’s device, apps and services should instinctively know the user – automatically, conveniently and securely.
The hosted identity platform will initially be offered in Asia to help underserved and underbanked consumers in this region.
Although the company’s current focus will be primarily in the Asian regions, EyeVerify is seeking new ways to bring hosted identity solutions to customers in North America and Europe, according to Rush.
While launching the platform solution in Asia, EyeVerify will continue to serve its existing Eyeprint ID SDK customers.
As part of the new direction, the company is changing its name to Zoloz to reflect its more comprehensive solution for trusted digital identity.
Previously reported, EyeVerify Inc. released The Retail Banking Biometrics Confidence Report, which explores consumer preferences and behavior regarding a range of biometrics solutions.
