Iridian Technologies, Inc. of Moorestown, NJ leads the world in research, development and marketing of authentication technologies based on iris recognition – the most accurate biometric identifier. Holder of U.S. and international patents on the core concepts and technologies behind iris recognition, Iridian offers the enabling technology to achieve unparalleled security for large-scale ID applications, physical facilities, information networks and electronic transactions.
Iridian Technologies’ iris recognition technology offers the benefits of:
- Accuracy: proven to be the world’s most accurate biometric
- Privacy: an opt-in biometric where you must choose to cooperate in order to be registered or identified, thereby making it the most private of biometrics
- Non-invasiveness: you do not touch anything, the camera simply takes a picture at a comfortable distance of 5 to 24 inches away
Iridian Technologies is committed to being the world’s leading provider of iris authentication technology. Our mission is to enable a safer world through iris recognition as we deliver the most accurate biometric to identify who you are.
As the demand for accurate, scalable and cost-effective identification solutions continues to increase, more organizations are turning toward iris recognition technology to improve how they associate the individual with what privileges they have (authorization). By using iris recognition technology to authenticate the individual, companies are now assured of who is crossing borders, accessing physical locations, and retrieving sensitive information.
The company’s target markets include large-scale, public applications such as simplified passenger travel, border control, national ID systems, and health and welfare applications. In addition, the technology is marketed towards applications in restricted access and information/network access solutions.
Iridian is fortunate to have premier backers, including: GE Equity, Johann Enschede, J.P. Morgan Capital, Lehman Brothers, NPM Capital N.V., Merrill Lynch, Perseus 2000 LLC and Walden Capital Partners L.P.
Iridian’s products reach the marketplace via two channels. Iridian’s PrivateID software is bundled seamlessly in with iris-enabled cameras manufactured and distributed by licensees such as Panasonic and Oki. Iridian’s KnoWho Authentication Server software is distributed by a rapidly growing list of world-class integrators and application partners. Iridian’s Proof Positive hardware and software certification program assures that certified iris cameras and software solutions meet critical standards for performance, interoperability, safety, security, scalability, usability and reliability. Previously the team worked on projects such as Style XP and Oneflare.
