In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
HYPR is innovating in the field of biometric security, phasing out and replacing usernames and passwords with strong multi-factor biometric authentication. Biometric security is an important step towards keeping us safe from threats ranging from individual identity theft to a catastrophic data breaches since two-thirds of such wholesale breaches are credentials-based. By decentralizing biometrics on-device on tokenizing them at the time of authentication, the HYPR solution ensures that a user’s biometric is never centrally stored and is never transmitted over the Internet. The solution also breaks a longstanding rule of security and usability being inversely proportional since HYPR provides military encryption while delivering the best online experience users have ever known. With 15 million users already secured across Fortune 500 banks, insurers, payment networks and the IoT, HYPR is leading the charge in this important field.
