Redrock Biometrics integrates PalmID print and vein recognition with HYPR platform
The HYPR cloud platform is endorsed by Comcast, Mastercard and Samsung, and is used by companies to deliver secure passwordless authentication for users. By partnering with Redrock Biometrics, HYPR users can leverage PalmID for multi-modal authentication with palm prints and vein patterns.
Coronavirus is driving the need for contactless biometrics as users no longer want to interact with shared touch-based devices, such as pin pads, touch screens, and fingerprint scanners.
“We are thrilled to work with HYPR to provide PalmID,” says Redrock Biometrics co-founder Lenny Kontsevich, in a prepared statement. “The world is changing in front of us, and palm biometrics are at the forefront of best available methods in the area of biometric security.”
To identify users, PalmID captures skin lines and creases and, optionally, an infra-red image of the veins. PalmID uses regular RGB and IR cameras to capture palm images.
“The importance of providing users optionality in how they authenticate has never been greater. Making secure and touchless authentication available to users furthers our mission of building a passwordless world,” said George Avetisov, CEO of HYPR, in the statement. “This partnership with Redrock Biometrics opens up new and exciting possibilities for passwordless authentication.”
Last month, Redrock Biometrics waived the license fee for its PalmID biometric authentication and identification for businesses deemed essential during the pandemic for a year or longer.
HYPR has recently appointed cloud engineering industry veteran Adam Abrevaya as vice president of engineering to accelerate innovation and passwordless authentication adoption.
