FPC accelerating biometric adoption in digital identity, fintech and IoT markets
Fingerprint Cards and Identity Devices Sweden AB today announced a multi-year partnership to accelerate biometric adoption in global digital identity, financial technology, internet of things and other innovative, fast-growing vertical markets.
The agreement will see Identity Devices include FPC fingerprint and iris biometric technology in new products and pre-certified integration kits that enables device makers to easily add biometric experiences and enable local authentication and access to global and national authentication ecosystems. The initial focus will be all-in-one pre-certified products with support for biometric authentication protocols from the FIDO Alliance, India’s Aadhaar and others.
“Our customers can launch their products faster and with high confidence with our pre-certified solutions that use world-class, scale-proven biometric technology from Fingerprints,” commented David Burnett, CEO and founder of Identity Devices and former board member of the FIDO Alliance. “The solutions offered by Identity Devices will make it easier than ever before for digital identity, IoT and fintech device makers to add biometric features that allow them to connect more securely to popular authentication and identity ecosystems.”
Thomas Rex, senior VP Business Line Smartcards, Automotive & Embedded at Fingerprint Cards added, “We are seeing accelerating ecosystem-driven worldwide demand for biometric technology, as illustrated by the Digital India vision and the biometric authentication at the heart of India’s national digital identity system, Aadhaar. Our partnership with Identity Devices, especially their unique experience in these global markets and diverse ecosystems, will substantially strengthen Fingerprints’ position.”
