– the smart phone and tablet markets are next
The US-based customer has chosen Precise Biometrics as their new fingerprint
algorithm vendor following a thorough test of the market. Precise Biometrics’
solution for embedded systems, which includes the top ranked algorithms in
NIST/Minex tests, was the main reason for the selection.
The customer is aiming to increase the performance of existing and forthcoming
fingerprint enabled devices by using Precise Biometrics’ technology. Their key
objective is a smooth and secure user experience.
CEO & President of Precise Biometrics Thomas Marschall says, “The financial
services markets have some of the world’s toughest requirements on usability and
security which is why we are extremely proud and pleased to present this new
customer and their endorsement of our solution for embedded systems. It means
that hundreds of thousands of employees in the financial sector soon will be
using our technology on a daily basis. For years we have worked at developing
fingerprint technology that can provide the best user experience, focusing on
making even “difficult” fingerprints work when using our algorithms. This is
important as it reduces support and education requirements while also enabling
as many people as possible to have a smooth user experience when using
fingerprint sensors. This win is extremely significant and is another
confirmation of the strength of our technology.”
Marschall added, “Starting in 2013, and with expected increases over the next
years, we see a widespread use of fingerprint technology in mobile devices both
for businesses and everyday use. For this to happen it is critical that the
technology is able to process even those fingerprints which it has previously
been difficult or impossible for biometric devices to read. Precise Biometrics
is able to offer this level of performance which is why a customer of such
global prominence has felt confident in choosing our solution”.
The details of this agreement are currently confidential, but it will have a
positive impact on Precise Biometrics’ financial results already in Q1.
