NEXT partners with LastMile Mobi to develop new biometrics-enabled products


NEXT Biometrics announced a cooperation agreement today with Digitsecure India Pvt Ltd (LastMile Mobi) that will see the two companies work together to develop new products based on NEXT’s large-area fingerprint sensor technology.

India-based Digitsecure is a digital identity and payments processing company with specialized focus on EMV, biometrics, card payments and security.

“We’re very pleased to be working with Digitsecure on developing new products for the India market,” commented Ritu Favre, NEXT CEO. “The agreement … will expand the use of biometrics for critical business applications in India and is further evidence of NEXT’s growing presence in the country. We look forward to joining with Digitsecure to support their market growth objectives.”

The Norwegian biometrics firm has been active in India recently. In June, NEXT Biometrics’ fingerprint sensor solution received hardware certification for India’s Aadhaar government ID program. Since then the company has attained Aadhaar Registered Device Service certification for Android, received an order for fingerprint sensor modules from Telpo to be integrated into devices for the Indian market and signed an agreement with AqTronics Technologies to distribute its line of biometric identification products in India.

“As a specialized technology platform provider for regulated industry segments, highest levels of performance and reliability of biometrics are key parameters we require from our partners” said Jay Krishna, CEO, Digitsecure. “Working together with NEXT Biometrics and their advanced large-area fingerprint sensor technology will help us deliver path breaking solutions and create new possibilities. I anticipate great things ahead as a result of our joint work.”

Specific product information and detailed objectives for the joint project were not being disclosed.
