NEW YORK, April 4, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Jeff Carter, Chief Strategy Officer at EyeLock and a thought leader in banking innovation with more than 15 years of banking and technology experience, today issued the following statement in reaction to recent breaches and security violations at banks and financial institutions in the United States:

"The recent series of intrusions into banks has reaffirmed our belief that the days of the username, PIN and password must be placed behind us.  We are currently experiencing a crisis level need for new methods of logical security if we want to protect the institutions that serve as the backbone of our country.

"For years, EyeLock has been working with banks and other financial institutions to establish a more secure, scalable and reliable solution that will ultimately eradicate fraudulent occurrences.

"We now call on the industry and regulators to move quickly toward a new solution, one focused on a stable biometric to authenticate identity, such as the iris, to protect America's financial security and remove points that are currently making us vulnerable to attacks."
