EyeVerify‘s Eyeprint ID technology will be integrated into Daon’s IdentityX authentication platform, allowing for the first time eye recognition capability to be included in the IdentityX platform.
“Collaboration with leading providers of best-of-breed authentication technologies as part of our IdentityX authentication platform is a win-win. Our partners win through fast access to our large global customer base, our customers win by having rapid access to innovative technologies and we win as the IdentityX platform grows as a thriving and innovative ecosystem,” said Tom Grissen, CEO at Daon. “Our partnership with EyeVerify and the incorporation of Eyeprint ID offer real advantages to our customers by adding another proven and successful modality for our current and future customers.”
FIDO-certified biometric solution Eyeprint ID enables Daon to provide IdentityX users with another biometric option, which complies with industry-leading, payment-grade security standards.
IdentityX, which is also a FIDO-certified solution, offers other biometric options such as face, fingerprint and voice recognition.
“Daon has a long history of meeting the multi-modal authentication needs for companies and their customers across the world,” said Paige Bailey, vice president of financial solutions at EyeVerify. “We are thrilled that financial institutions will be able to choose our patented eye biometric technology within the IdentityX platform.”
Earlier this month, EyeVerify solutions engineer Ryan Schroeder detailed in a blog post the essential aspects of the Revised Payment Services Directive (commonly referred to as PSD2) and what payment service providers will need to do in order to be compliant with the law’s strong customer authentication (SCA) requirements.
