NexID Participates in 2014 Connect:ID Expo

NexID participated in the inaugural Connect:ID Expo this past week at the Ronald Reagan Building in Washington, D.C.  NexID joined approximately 40 other vendors as booth exhibitors and our  CEO, Dr. Stephanie Schuckers, was a presenter on Day 1 of the Expo, speaking on fake fingers, liveness detection and ID template protection.

We also took the opportunity to announce our latest product, Mobile LFD, a completely “re-architected” version of our live-finger-detection solution targeted at the mobile device and embedded products market.

We were pleased with all aspects of the Expo, especially the media coverage of our Mobile LFD announcement. All of our media conversations were interesting, including that with Natasha Singer of The New York Times. As for the venue, the Ronald Reagan Building is spectacular and quite ideal for such a gathering. Our hats go off to Science Media Partners and the IBIA for an outstanding inaugural event.

As evidenced by a number of seminars on the topic, along with exhibit area conversations, mobile biometrics continues to be the hot topic of the industry. Examples from the program include tracks focusing on enhancing security and convenience with mobile identity, digital identity in the era of hyper-mobility, and identity solutions for banking and healthcare. I look forward to future biometrics conferences to follow Connect:ID’s lead in focusing additional program space on the topic of mobile identity.
