IrisGuard was founded in 2001 and is a UK-based electronic payment solutions company and the leading supplier of end-to-end iris recognition biometric technology for large-scale deployments, focused on managing trusted human identity requirements for large populations.

IrisGuard’s patented EyePay® technology is an innovative Secure Financial Delivery platform that utilises end-to-end iris recognition technology such as EyeBank®, EyeCloud®, and EyeCash® to securely deliver cost-effectively financial services to the world’s unbanked through card-less cash withdrawals on ATMs, Blockchain transfers, remittances and food vouchers replacements in supermarkets.

IrisGuard is an established and recognised solutions provider for the United Nations Agencies such as the High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), the World Food Programme (WFP) and many National government and Non-governmental organisations (NGO’s) around the world, in addition to numerous retail banks across the Middle-East.

The future of transactions is mobile, and IrisGuard has developed the next generation of its platforms by combining EyePay® with Android technology and creating a bespoke application that authenticates and authorises via a global database, using an EyePay® Phone. Leveraging the popularity of mobile hardware – even amongst refugee populations – IrisGuard looks to serve even more of the unbanked than before.
