Winning.I provides contactless fingerprint biometric authentication software to insurer

Korean biometrics services provider Winning.I has announced a new partnership with Meritz Fire & Marine Insurance.

The new collaboration will see the deployment by Meritz of Winning.I’s contactless biometric authentication software Aerox Sign V1.0.

Meritz will use Aerox to provide its customers with strong authentication by combining fingerprint biometrics with digital signatures.

The collaboration builds on similar partnerships Winning.I has previously formed with Samsung Life Insurance, and Hyundai Insurance.

Aerox’s contactless biometric authentication technology uses smartphone cameras to provide authentication capabilities, even if the phone does not offer a built-in biometric system.

The only technical requirements needed are for the phone to have an 8MP camera and flash, which encompasses the vast majority of smartphones today.

“If you have a camera on your phone, our system can be used [regardless of] OS limitations,” explains Winning.I’s CEO Woo-Young Chung.

Together with the new Meritz partnership, Winning.I confirmed it also completed the submission of its patent technologies in both the U.S. and South Korea.

Moving forward, Chung intends to renew Winning.I’s efforts in the U.S. as soon as its patents are officially approved.

Contactless fingerprints collected with smartphones  the beginning of this year, in a possible sign of an emerging trend.

This post was updated at 8:33am Eastern on November 26, 2021 to correct that the Aerox technology being adopted by Meritz is for contactless fingerprints, rather than palm prints.
