LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- LVCC, South Hall, Booth 2100 - EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions and developer of first consumer accessible iris authentication device, myris, today announced it will showcase a pre-production laptop with EyeLock ID technology embedded at the 2015 Consumer Electronics Show. Created in partnership with leading global original design manufacturer Wistron NeWeb Corporation (WNC) (TSE:6285), the laptop uses EyeLock's iris identity authentication technology to provide users seamless security for critical access points.
In November, EyeLock announced an agreement with WNC to embed EyeLock's patented iris authentication technology across PCs, set-top boxes, network devices and automotive applications. The partnership established EyeLock as the first company to embed iris authentication technology in an original design manufacturer (ODM) device.
EyeLock's technology provides an unprecedented level of convenience and security with unmatched biometric accuracy, making it the most proven way to authenticate ones identity aside from DNA. EyeLock developed and brought to market a proprietary iris authentication technology that looks at more than 240 points in each eye, and is one of the only companies in the world to utilize dual-eye authentication.
The frequency and velocity of password breaches, data compromises and identity theft punctuates current systems' vulnerabilities and the need to move away from outdated security protocols. EyeLock's breakthrough technology coupled with WNC's design and manufacturing expertise helped to create a best-in-class embedded laptop that could change the way people work and live, rendering passwords obsolete.
EyeLock and WNC have created a module that seamlessly integrates into existing laptop architectures, adding no weight or bulk to the device. Embedding the award-winning iris authentication technology shows how iris identity authentication technology can be quickly adopted across a range of devices starting in 2015.
EyeLock's advances in iris authentication have made it possible to incorporate this highly secure technology into consumer-oriented devices at scale without compromising the technology's accuracy or ease-of-use.
EyeLock is a leader in iris authentication, provides the highest level of security with EyeLock ID technology. The company's proprietary, embeddable technology enables the convenient, secure authentication of individuals across physical and logical environments. EyeLock's software has been integrated across consumer and enterprise platforms, eliminating the need for PINs and passwords. No two irises are alike, and outside DNA - the iris is the most accurate human identifier. Corporations across the Fortune 500 recognize the level of security EyeLock provides due in part to its false accept rate, ease of use and scalability. As a sponsor member of the Fast IDentity Online Alliance (FIDO), a non-profit organization dedicated to creating a safer and more secure digital presence for consumers, EyeLock is dedicated to providing digital privacy and next generation security.
