Q launches the first biometric identity network powered by palm scanning technology
New York–(work wire) – Keyo, the privacy-obsessed biometric identity company, today announced the launch of Keyo Network, a global biometric identity system featuring the most powerful palm scanner and software platform in the industry. Keyo allows anyone to verify their identity and access their belongings by scanning their hand without contact, giving people the ability to open doors, pay at stores, redeem tickets, and more without the need for phones, bills, cards or keys.
The Keyo Network is designed to create a convenient and consistent experience for people across different businesses, countries, and use cases. It’s powered by patented hardware and software that maps and encodes unique palm patterns, and can reach billions of users. Keyo network consists of:
- wave qPowered by Keyo’s patented palm multispectral imaging technology, the Wave is the most powerful handheld scanner in the industry, allowing incredible flexibility to identify palms at different distances, angles, and positions, such as flat versus concave.
- Keyo mobile app: People can sign up with Keyo, link accounts like credit cards, and manage their data and permissions using the Keyo smartphone app.
- Keyo Partner Program and App StoreDesigned for enterprise use cases, the Keyo Partner Program & App Store allows Keyo Partners to quickly add convenient and secure contactless biometric identity to their products and services.
- Keyo Identity CloudScaled to cover billions of users and backed by military-grade encryption, Keyo Identity Cloud enables users to instantly and privately identify themselves based on a simple scan of their hands at any participating company in the Keyo network.
““We are on a mission to create the first truly secure, private and seamless global identity system – a paradigm shift in how we define ourselves throughout our daily lives,” said Jackson Klein, CEO of Keyo. “The platform is specifically designed for scalability, compliance, and interoperability so that partners can easily add biometric identity to their products and services, and so that people no longer need to rely on scraps of metal, paper or plastic for identification.”
Keyo was founded in 2015 with the goal of providing the convenience of biometrics without compromising privacy, data security, or personal freedom. More than 15,000 Keyo devices are in use worldwide, allowing patients to check in for hospital appointments in the US, staff to open office doors in Mexico, shoppers to pay for purchases in Rwanda and more. The company has raised $7 million in funding so far from visionary investors and operators, such as Netflix co-founder Mark Randolph.
““I am so happy to be on this journey with Keyo,” Mark Randolph said. “I’ve always been interested in true consumer innovation, and Keyo has the potential to simplify the way millions of people interact with the world.”
The human hand has millions of unique data points that distinguish us and change little over time, making it an ideal biological identifier. Some of these data points, such as those of palm vein patterns, are internal to the body, making them nearly impossible to obtain without consent. Keyo’s choice of palms for a biometric identity system is just one of the ways the company protects consumer privacy. With military-grade encryption and support for major privacy and security frameworks such as GDPR, SOC, BIPA, and CCPA, Keyo technology ensures a secure experience for partners and users.
Problems Keyo can solve range from minor annoyances, such as forgetting your wallet or keys, to major crises, such as reclaiming the identity of people who have experienced a natural disaster or political instability. In a world that continues to grow more connected and globalized, Keyo is building a future where all anyone needs to navigate through their day comfortably, safely and securely is the palm of their hand.
