EyeVerify and Comarch are partnering to integrate Eyeprint ID into Comarch’s Smart Finance and Corporate Banking solutions, providing Comarch’s global client base with payment grade biometric authentication on mobile devices.
The two companies say the addition of Eyeprint ID reflects Comarch’s focus on ease-of-use and security for banking clients, and Comarch’s 20 years of banking industry expertise and long relationships with top banks provides EyeVerify with additional validation of its technology.
EyeVerify says an Eyeprint can never be lost, stolen or intercepted because it’s scrambled and encrypted locally - it never leaves the user’s device. Eyeprint ID uses existing 1+ MP smartphone cameras to image and pattern match the unique pattern of eye veins and other micro features in and around the eye.
“By adding Eyeprint ID to our suite of banking solutions, we’re giving banks an efficient way to provide their end users with easy, password-free biometric login, without compromising security,” says Sylwia Hans, Financial Services director, US, at Comarch.
“EyeVerify is pleased to work with Comarch, whose expertise in technology for banks is well-established. It is recognised for offering its own innovative technology, and we are pleased that it sees Eyeprint ID as a valuable addition to its portfolio,” says Chris Barnett, EyeVerify EVP Global Sales and Marketing.
Both companies have roots in academia, with a heavy emphasis on research and development. Comarch emerged from a university spin-off established by Professor Janusz Filipiak and his 12 students at the AGH University of Science and Technology in Kraków. The technology behind Eyeprint ID was developed by Dr Reza Derakhshani from the University of Missouri in Kansas City.
