VOXX Electronics Corp (VEC), a newly formed wholly-owned subsidiary of VOXX International Corp. (NASDAQ: VOXX), and EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, today announced a strategic partnership to deliver myris™, a USB-enabled iris identity authenticator that offers the most convenient and secure way to authenticate your digital identity.
Iris authentication has been available to corporations and enterprises for years, but no platform has been simple enough for consumers to use in everyday situations. myris changes all that with its patented iris authentication technology from Eyelock. myris works by converting an individual’s iris patterns to a code unique only to that person, then matches that code to your eyes to grant access to the devices and digital platforms.
“Fraud and identity theft cost businesses and consumers millions every year. Companies large and small have struggled to provide a level of security that protects against this,” said Tom Malone, President of VOXX Electronics Corp. “With myris, any business regardless of size can protect itself from fraud and any consumer can protect the thing that is most important, their personal information and their identity.”
myris uses EyeLock’s proven video based iris authentication technology, providing an unprecedented level of security. It’s simple to use—myris simply plugs into any USB compatible device and provides security for up to five users in mere seconds. myris is compatible with Windows 7 and 8, Mac OS and Chrome OS. Whether in the workplace, at home or on the road, users will have peace of mind knowing access to their digital worlds is secure.
“Eyelock is the only iris authentication technology to employ fast motion video and dual eye authentication, allowing us to provide a more seamless, simple and user-friendly experience, with unparalleled levels of security,” said Jim Demitrieus, Chief Executive Officer, EyeLock “Partnering with VOXX Electronics guarantees our technology will reach the broadest possible audience and propel digital security into the next era.”
Malone continued, “We have one of the finest distribution networks in the world that includes specialists, mass merchants and power retailers in every consumer electronics market and our intention is to market this product throughout the network.” Malone concluded. “We will also be focusing our efforts on the enterprise markets where we believe there is enormous potential in business, banking and the medical fields.”
