NEW YORK, Nov. 11, 2014/PRNewswire/ -- EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, today announced that it has been named a 2015 CES Innovation Awards Honoree for myris™. Products entered in this prestigious program are judged by a preeminent panel of independent industrial designers, independent engineers and members of the trade media to honor outstanding design and engineering in cutting edge consumer electronics products across 28 product categories.
As the first consumer accessible iris authentication product available at retail, myris enables the use of best practices for password protocols and diminishes vulnerabilities associated with password breaches and security issues facing consumers. With myris, users can now create strong passwords and forget them. The handheld USB device uses patented EyeLock ID technology to provide convenient and secure access to devices, apps and websites that are important in our everyday lives. Authentication with myris is faster and more secure than any other biometric identifier aside from DNA.
This honor caps off a strong year for EyeLock's myris™, which also took home accolades such as Mashable's 'Best of CES 2014', the 2014 Red Dot: Product Design award and Popular Science's 'Best of What's New' distinction.
"This acknowledgment reiterates the impact of what myris brings to the public – a previously unavailable biometric solution that mitigates the deficiencies of password security that has become such a troublesome issue," said EyeLock Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer Anthony Antolino. "We're excited for people to get their hands on myris and look forward to integrating our technology into even more of the devices that we use every day."
EyeLock's myris™ will be displayed at the 2015 International CES, which runs Jan. 6-9, 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada. It will also be displayed alongside the other honorees at CES Unveiled New York, which features dozens of exhibitors and networking opportunities, and runs 4:30-7:30 PM November 11 at the Metropolitan Pavilion, New York. CES Innovation honorees are determined by their engineering, aesthetic and design qualities, intended use/function and user value and how the design and innovation of the product directly compares to other products in the marketplace and unique/novel features present.
