EyeVerify specializes in eye vein biometrics, the process of imaging and pattern matching the blood vessels in the whites of the eye. EyeVerify uses a cell phone camera to capture vascular patterns to achieve fingerprint-level accuracy using a device people never leave home without.
Use cases include accessing enterprise VPNs, online bank accounts and medical records, says Toby Rush, CEO and founder at EyeVerify. He adds it works for internal employees or external facing consumers, no matter where or when.
The reason the solution does not require sophisticated optics is that it can utilize images captured in visible light where other biometric systems require near-infrared light. The modern cell phone camera is more than sufficient, says Rush.
