iWallet has introduced a turnkey biometric identification solution based on NEXT Biometrics’ NB-3010-U ergonomic USB desktop fingerprint reader that is designed to entirely replace passwords when logging into notebooks and tablets. Known as the iWallet Password, the solution has been developed as part of a strategic partnership launched last week that involves NEXT’s NB-2020S fingerprint sensors being incorporated into iWallet’s portfolio of biometric products. “Ongoing security challenge issues such as identity theft and data breaches continue to drive the adoption of biometrics as a security solution. Fingerprint authentication is at an inflection point. Apple’s successful integration of fingerprint technology in the iPhone and the integration of face and iris recognition into Windows 10, are just two examples of how major tech players are moving towards faster and more localized password-free authentication methods,” said Jack Chadsey, CEO of iWallet Corporation.
