Iris ID, a global leader in iris recognition technology, exhibits a selection of Iris ID’s identity authentication hardware solutions are on display at booth ISC West 2023 show.
“Biometrics and specifically iris recognition technology are undoubtedly gaining traction nationally and internationally. During FIFA, more than 1.4 million passengers were authenticated using Iris ID iris recognition technology and recently the FBI has begun to encourage law enforcement agencies and corrections facilities across the United States to adopt iris technology”, said Mohammed Murad, Vice President, Iris ID. “We are excited to bring the technology to mainstream applications such as access control, and time and attendance and look forward to educating and continuing the conversation on the benefits of biometric authentication.”
Biometrics are widely regarded as a superior means of identity authentication due to their tokenless nature. Based on physical characteristics instead of a physical token, biometric identity solutions are known for their unique ability to safeguard against credential and identity theft. Iris biometrics are renowned for their long-term stability, unmatched search speed, and accuracy. The use of biometrics for authentication purposes are generally opt-in applications with users consenting to the enrollment and use of their biometric for purposes of access, time and attendance, etc. This effectively eliminates the surveillance concerns often affiliated with biometrics, as these solutions do not scan crowds looking for individuals.
Since 1997, Iris ID has been the key developer and driver of the commercialization of iris recognition technology. IrisAccess, now in its sixth generation, is the world’s most deployed iris recognition platform. More people in more places authenticate with IrisAccess than with all other iris recognition products combined. Iris ID’s biometric solutions are frequently deployed for commercial applications such as access control, National ID and time and attendance, but are also heavily utilized in the private sector by top local, state, and federal law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), for public safety and justice applications.
