Autonomous_ID, Enacomm announce new executive team members
Autonomous_ID welcomes Denis R. Herbert to Chairman’s Advisory Board as principal advisor on biometric identity and access-control systems, the company announced.
The news follows the company’s shift from research to real-world implementation of its gait-based biometric identification system and Internet-of-Things (IOT) services.
“I was attracted by the company’s mission to build a fully autonomous biometric identity system and the commitment that Todd and company executives have to advancing identity security and user privacy at the intersection of IOT,” Hebert said. “I believe that a self-governing biometric system in a connected world necessitates the innovations that autonomous_ID brings to the table. This is unquestionably a generational leap forward in biometric systems, and I am excited to play a role,” added Hebert.
Herbert has extensive experience in the biometric identity and access control industry. He is president of cloud-based access control platform Feenics, chairman of Nightingale Security and former chairman of the Security Industry Association. Previous positions include president and CEO of HID Global Corporation, executive vice president of Assa Abloy, and president of NexWatch, a Honeywell International company.
“I am honored to welcome Denis to the Advisory board,” said CEO Todd Gray. “His unparalleled knowledge and industry expertise are a noteworthy endorsement for the company as we pivot to bring our patented autonomous biometric platform and data services to the security, healthcare, insurance and connected IOT markets.”
