NEW YORK, May 19, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Technology is rapidly advancing, outpacing enterprises' ability to secure their resources both internally and in the cloud. Passwords and their management are soon to be rendered obsolete by the use of OTP and standards-based specifications such as those developed by the FIDO Alliance™. With the difficulties that the outmoded use of passwords presents for BYOD, COPE, IoT, and mobile payments, the interconnected online world needs a unified biometric identity protocol.
In response to the call for seamless, secure, and convenient authentication, HYPR Corp. announced today that its Biometric Security Integration Kit is now available for purchase. The Integration Kit is an end-to-end biometric security suite intended for developers and manufacturers across the ever-expanding Internet of Things (IoT). The kits are expected to ship in July in the U.S., Canada, and Europe.
The kit contains all components necessary for securing both applications and devices across the IoT in a sector-agnostic manner.
- Embedded future-proof security: HYPR operates as an "under-the-hood" security solution that enables applications to link with compatible, FIDO-Ready devices and biometric sensors such as voice analyzers, facial recognition detectors, and fingerprint readers. By embedding HYPR into their products, developers and manufacturers can achieve future-proof security that seamlessly works with any current or future compliant biometric devices. This level of authentication technology, once only available to large enterprises and government agencies, is now available to individuals as an easy-to-deploy kit.
- "Drop-in" IoT solution: Device manufacturers across the evolving Internet of Things will benefit by having a "drop-in" security solution that immediately links their products with the biometric sensors on the hardware layer of the IoT stack.
- Added security, reduced cost: Application developers benefit by seamlessly embedding HYPR as an invisible and interoperable solution into their software to provide remotely impenetrable biometric authentication, eliminating the extra costs of add-on security solutions and potential breaches.
- Seamless biometric upgrade: Enterprises, financial services providers, payment platforms, government agencies and entities across the healthcare industry are able to use the HYPR protocol to upgrade seamlessly towards a fully biometric-secured environment – in either a BYOD or security token delivery method. The token, included in the integration kit, is also a stand-alone product for public and private enterprises that require the highest degree of security including biometric tokenization in a FIPS 140-2 Level 3 compliant form factor.
George Avetisov, CEO of HYPR Corp. said:
"The ubiquity of mobile devices, coupled with growing access to the Internet, creates an environment where cyber criminals continue to innovate based on familiar password protocols. Put simply, security is inadequate for the scale and scope of the IoT. What's needed now is a security strategy that responsibly utilizes a user's unique biometric signature by having it be the root of authentication, while never allowing it to leave the device layer. With HYPR Integration Kits, both independent developers and large organizations will be able to secure logins at all points along the authentication channel with powerful biometric tokenization."
HYPR is a sector agnostic platform enabling secure biometric authentication. From developers to enterprises and manufacturers, our mission is to seamlessly replace the use of passwords with a unified biometric identity protocol. As an end-to-end solution, HYPR is the fundamental framework for securing the Internet-of-Things. Additional information is available at: https://www.hypr.com
