Iris ID talks steady biometric iris recognition partnership with Google data centers

Iris ID talks steady biometric iris recognition partnership with Google data centers

This has been a fruitful year for biometric iris recognition developer Iris ID Systems. Not only has the company been included on the Inc. 5000 list of the fastest-growing private businesses in the U.S. in 2020, but its technology has been implemented across the world.

It now secures payroll management systems in three hotels in Iraq, it has been implemented in airport security and border management due to a partnership with Securiport, and embedded in the Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department’s prisoner release process.

Iris IDs biometric technology has also been chosen by Google to secure data center access management. Beginning in 2005, the two companies had a number of on-site meetings and demos in select locations, followed by different implementation stages, both locally and internationally. The first stage involved ROU3000 and iCAM4000 deployments for non-contact authentication in high secure areas in Mountain View, Iowa, Dallas and NY, Iris ID VP of Global Sales and Busines Development Mohammed Murad told Biometric Update.

The data center deployment process has been spread out over the years, and in some locations deployments are still ongoing. The data centers have already gone through a couple of generations of Iris ID products and different integrators, ranging from Siemens, Tyco and Northland to ADT and MCDean.

According to Murad, the technology provides less false rejects and one enrollment does suffice. Based on his forecast, the technology has been primarily implemented in Tier 1 data centers globally, due to cost concerns. IrisAccess has so far been used in data centers in the U.S., Ireland, Finland, Belgium and Asia.

“The IrisAcess platform has been deployed for access control in many Boon Edam mantraps and single entrance access with anti-piggybacking locations,” similar to the Google data center deployment, Murad explained.

Considering how the global COVID-19 pandemic has changed user behavior, Murad projects an increase in contactless biometrics adoption for identity authentication and access control. Moving forward, he also estimates a rapid adoption of iris-based systems for any application and in any industry “where non-contact, secure, and accurate authentication is a pre-requisite.”

In January, Iris ID integrated its handheld iCAM M300 multimode platform for biometric enrollment and verification with the FBI-certified Sherlock fingerprint scanner developed by Integrated Biometrics.
