眼纹识别技术所提供的操作方案极其便捷。 用户使用iPhone或者安卓机上面的摄像头，眼纹解锁技术Eyeprint ID就会捕捉到眼睛的图像，然后就会产生相匹配的独特的静脉模式验证身份信息，换句话说： 用户只需要摄像头和“眼纹”即可完成登陆。并且，与指纹识别器或者虹膜扫描等技术不同 ，眼纹识别只基于软件技术而对硬件没有要求，在实现99.99%精确度的同时实现了成本优化。
EyeVerify最近的发展势如破竹。这家公司在年初公布了其与肯塔基Republic Bank合作的战略布局；几周之后就有报道称其眼纹识别技术的用户数已经突破200万。去年秋天，公司的Eyprint ID技术已经被中国智能手机制造商努比亚First Internet Bank采用。
By summer, Wells Fargo will be offering Eyeprint ID from EyeVerify to its corporate clients with commercial banking accounts.
As reported earlier this year in Bank Innovation, the initiative comes in the wake of EyeVerify's participation in Wells Fargo's startup accelerator program. Eyeprint ID will be offered as an option along with a facial and voice recognition system. Both biometric authentication options replace the need for usernames, passwords, corporate ID numbers, and security tokens.
Secil Watson, head of wholesale Internet solutions for Wells Fargo, told the LA. Times this week that passwords were "at the end of their useful life." She pointed out that Wells Fargo had been studying a variety of biometric solutions for "six or seven years," including voice authentication technologies.
Eyeprint ID technology provides a biometric authentication solution that is as straightforward as taking a selfie. By leveraging the existing camera in a smartphone to image the patterns of veins in the eye, the technology can be used for opening and securing mobile devices, as well as for logins. Unlike other solutions like fingerprint readers or iris scanners, Eyeprint ID's software-only biometric approach doesn't require expensive hardware to provide users with 99.99% accuracy.
EyeVerify has been on a roll in recent months. The company announced a deployment of its Eyeprint ID technology at Republic Bank in Kentucky at the beginning of the year, just a few weeks after reporting EyeVerify had topped two million users of its technology. And last fall, the company's Eyeprint ID was adopted by both Chinese smartphone maker Nubia and the First Internet Bank.
Founded in 2012 and headquartered in Kansas City, Missouri, EyeVerify won a Best of Show award at FinovateEurope 2016. Toby Rush is CEO and founder.
