EyeLock's technology represents a breakthrough in proprietary software, security, algorithms and optics, and delivers the most secure, reliable and user-friendly capabilities available in the market today – outperforming the iris recognition solutions available from Samsung, Fujitsu and Microsoft Lumia.
With the rapid proliferation of biometric modalities across IoT devices, EyeLock's new technology addresses the growing demand for increased security protocols for devices and the use case applications that power the world we live in. The technology benefits OEM licensees and the market-at-large, including financial services, healthcare, automotive, enterprise and government sectors, by delivering a solution to mitigate security threats while providing consumers a more convenient way to transact.

EyeLock offers the only iris recognition technology today that works at a distance of 60 cm, with glasses, contacts and daylight, all without compromising security or ease of use," he said.
EyeLock is one of the only biometric companies in the world to own and control the entire software and algorithm stack, providing dual-eye authentication, an unmatched security architecture and anti-spoofing technology.
EyeLock LLC, a majority owned subsidiary of Voxx International Corporation (VOXX: NASDAQ), is an acknowledged leader in advanced iris authentication for the Internet of Things (IoT), providing the highest level of security with EyeLock ID™ technology.
