EyeLock LLC, the leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, announced today that is has secured a global partnership with Integral Technology Solutions out of Freehold, New Jersey. Integral’s proven track record of designing and deploying biometric authentication solutions is a perfect complement to EyeLock’s global distribution network. This partnership will enable EyeLock to introduce their products further into the life sciences market by providing the regulated and non-regulated manufacturing industry with a privacy-friendly, touchless – hygienic, feature-rich iris-enabled authentication product at an attractive price point.
“Our partnership with Integral Technology Solutions, along with their innovative iris authentication integration platform, represents a revolutionary product centered around EyeLock’s myris® handheld device for iris authentication. The myris® is portable and USB-powered, and is the ideal solution for logical security which when combined with Integral’s platform, takes myris® to new heights. With EyeLock’s extensive global distributor relationships, this partnership will create an even higher demand for our portable iris technology around the world,” said Jeff Carter, Chief Executive Officer, EyeLock LLC.
This global partnership covers the European and Americas markets. The use of EyeLock’s iris technology for logical, physical and hybrid access control introduces opportunities for manufacturers to improve their operations in new and innovative ways. Integral’s platform, combined with EyeLock’s technology, is a solution designed specifically for the medical, pharmaceutical, agricultural and food processing industries where absolute employee accountability is required to meet the GxP requirements set forth by the FDA.
“Integral’s customers in the pharmaceutical, medical device, and personal health industries will benefit from EyeLock’s iris authentication technology for supply chain management. Companies such as Werum, SAP, Siemens, Rockwell, Wonderware, and others have the need for EyeLock’s solution during the critical manufacturing process,” said Marc Diament, Chief Executive Officer of Integral Technology Solutions. “We see pressure on life science manufacturers to achieve greater levels of data integrity and operator accountability and EyeLock’s iris authentication technology offers a unique ability to achieve this without increasing friction in daily operations.”
While touchless biometric modalities such as wearables, facial, and some forms of hand scanning are satisfactory for low to medium security applications, iris continues to provide the highest level of security and convenience and is uniquely useful in GxP manufacturing environments where users must regularly wear PPE.
