EyeVerify Gets Spoof Detection Upgrade and Extends Reach with Alibaba Acquisition
In September 2016, the Ant Financial Group (the e-commerce and mobile payments branch of Alibaba) acquired biometric startup EyeVerify. This is a significant milestone for the humble Kansas startup, but one that is well-deserved. EyeVerify’s flagship offering is the Eyeprint ID, an innovative software-based technology (i.e. does not require any external hardware) that allows the creation of unique biometric templates by using smartphone cameras to take a picture of one’s face and harness the data variability already present in the eye blood vessels.
