Users receive enhanced password management, form autofill and browser integration with myris, the first-ever iris authentication device for enterprise and mass market.
NEW YORK – September 29, 2014 — Password management software provider Sticky Password today announced it has partnered with EyeLock Inc., a market leader of iris-based identity authentication solutions, to integrate its software platform into myris, an iris identity authenticator that plugs into a USB port. The combined solution integrates EyeLock’s myris device with Sticky Password’s software to provide added security and ease-of-use for logging in to digital platforms– eliminating the need to create and remember passwords, usernames and personal information.
With Sticky Password’s browser integration, once the myris application is launched it will search through the user’s browsers for passwords already stored and create a secure database to host them. Sticky Password will also deliver form autofill to myris by storing the user’s personal data like social security number, credit card number, and billing address. This means that this sensitive information is stored on the device rather than through cookies in the user’s browser where it can be stolen by hackers.
“We are excited to enter into this partnership with EyeLock targeting biometric authentication,” said Petr Bílek, CEO of Sticky Password. “Sticky Password’s software combined with myris’ iris authentication
technology enhances a user’s online security in a new and dynamic way. As the industry moves toward biometrics, EyeLock is providing the innovative, forward-looking technology customers and businesses are demanding and we are pleased to be a pioneer in this growing movement.”
The myris device is compatible with Windows 7 and 8, Mac OS, and Chrome OS.
