“By using three human verification pathways – fingerprint, voice and facial recognition – web security expert BioSSL locks down access to hackers. Its unique feature is that it does not allow for the storage of images, scans or biometric features on a local device or server, thereby preserving their integrity if the device is stolen, damaged or lost.
BioSSL’s fingerprint and facial recognition template cannot be reverse engineered. Security is entirely handled on the BioSSL server and no two private-public keys are ever the same.
The company is an omni-channel solution for banks, financial institutions, e-commerce and government, using military-grade ID systems."
We dedicate this award to our administration in recognition of all their hard work.

Everyone has a face and every face is unique. The integration of Face Recognition was the next step for BioSSL because mobile phones and laptops mostly have an integrated web camera, which makes the deployment of BioSSL Web Security cos effective.
The face can replace or be an add-on on the web password. The uniqueness lays in the fact that BioSSL creates a one-time biometric key as similar with their fingerprint verification and sends the data encrypted to the server. No data is locally stored and useless for hackers on the server.
