At AirWatch Connect at Mobile World Congress 2015, AirWatch TV interviewed Chris Barnett, Executive Vice President for Global Sales and Marketing of EyeVerify, a biometric company. In the video below, Barnett elaborates on AirWatch and EyeVerify’s new integration.
AirWatch and EyeVerify’s updated partnership establishes Eyeprint ID integration with the complete AirWatch product suite, in addition to prior integrations with the AirWatch SDK and AirWatch Chat. This integration allows users to bypass traditional passcodes with a quick biometric detection.
Biometric scanning and authentication is quickly catching on in several industries, says Barnett. He adds that EyeVerify has observed strong traction for biometrics and two-factor authentication in government, healthcare, financial services and the oil and gas industries.
Biometric authentication eliminates the need for pins and passwords that can often be cumbersome to track. “Biometrics have been around a while in science fiction movies,” says Barnett. “We really feel that 2015 is the year where it’s going to be the standard. Now with Touch ID from Apple and Eyeprint ID from EyeVerify, there finally is a solution that actually solves that problem.”
