HYPR Joins FIDO Alliance board, names CTO and co-founder delegate

Categories Biometrics News  |  Trade Notes

HYPR Corp. has been appointed to the FIDO Alliance Board of Directors and has named its cofounder and chief technology officer Bojan Simic as the board delegate.

In joining the board, HYPR will work alongside Microsoft, Google, Aetna and Samsung and others to directly influence and help drive the FIDO Alliance’s mission to reduce the world’s over-reliance on passwords. The FIDO Alliance empowers organizations to establish a more robust, secure approach to consumer and employee authentication through the development of open standards. HYPR has been a member and contributor of the FIDO Alliance since 2015.

“HYPR believes that FIDO standards provide enterprises with a powerful framework for securing their customers and employees without the use of passwords and shared secrets,” explains Simic. “True password-less authentication can provide tremendous benefits to digital transformation initiatives as well as accelerate enterprise cloud transformation projects by making end-users immune to phishing and account takeove. Over the years, we have worked closely with our partners to provide a technological bridge to support these initiatives and look forward to working with the FIDO board in a greater capacity to share and learn so that we can accelerate adoption and improve security internet-wide.”

“As one of the earliest innovators of FIDO solutions, HYPR brings significant in-market expertise and perspective to FIDO’s board of directors, which will help inform our collective efforts to move the world beyond passwords,” adds Andrew Shikiar, chief marketing officer of the FIDO Alliance. “HYPR has long been a champion of the Alliance, FIDO standards, and our mission. We look forward to Bojan’s contributions as FIDO continues to standardize modern authentication techniques to better secure the connected economy.”

System on a chip solution company eWBM and AI-powered identity verification firm Onfido were each appointed to the FIDO board earlier this year.
