EyeVerify Eyeprint ID™ Now Integrated Into AirWatch Software Development Kit and AirWatch Chat

Eyeprint ID™ Provides Convenient, Secure and Private Biometrics for Password-Free Mobility

BARCELONA, SPAIN--(Marketwired - Mar 2, 2015) - EyeVerify announced today that Eyeprint ID™, the patented biometric technology that eliminates passwords on smart devices, is now integrated into the AirWatch® by VMware® Software Development Kit (SDK) for app developers and AirWatch Chat, an enterprise-grade secure messaging application available today for iOS devices. EyeVerify will be released into the entire AirWatch product suite in Q1 2015, including AirWatch Inbox™, AirWatch Video™, AirWatch Content Locker™ and AirWatch Container™. The patented Eyeprint ID technology, available only from EyeVerify, provides a highly accurate, user-friendly biometric authentication stack.

"As one of our earliest partners, AirWatch recognizes the importance of secure enterprise mobility deployments," said Chris Barnett, EVP of global sales and marketing from EyeVerify. "By integrating Eyeprint ID into the AirWatch product suite, we're collaborating to secure data, secure devices and provide accurate authentication."

"AirWatch customers want to take advantage of the latest biometric technology, and our partnership with EyeVerify provides a secure and simple authentication alternative to typing in long, complex passcodes," said John Marshall, senior vice president and general manager, AirWatch by VMware. "The Eyeprint ID integration gives our end users easy access to business-critical applications while allowing IT to maintain high levels of security for devices and corporate data."

Eyeprint ID is also available to security-conscious organizations such as banks throughout Australia via The System Works Group and Digital Insight through an exclusive partnership.

Eye biometrics have historically been confined to narrow realms such as military bases or fictional realms such as Hollywood movies. Several intersecting megatrends are accelerating market adoption for Eyeprint ID, such as the Heartbleed bug and password hacking, widespread internet privacy concerns, rapid improvement in front-facing smart device camera quality and the wild popularity of selfies on social media.
