EyeLock’s technology provides a greater level of convenience and security with unmatched biometric accuracy, making it the most proven way to authenticate identity aside from DNA. EyeLock’s proprietary iris authentication technology looks at more than 240 unique iris characteristics and provides a fast, user-friendly experience. EyeLock is one of the only companies in the world to utilize dual-eye authentication.
Iris authentication is highly secure because no two irises are alike and the iris is the most accurate human identifier other than DNA. The company’s significant IP portfolio, including more than 75 patents and patents pending, and proprietary technology enables the convenient and secure authentication of individuals across physical and logical environments.
EyeLock’s solutions have been integrated and embedded across consumer and enterprise products and platforms, eliminating the need for PINs and passwords.
