IDEX Biometrics’ technology certified by an additional global payment network

Oslo, Norway, 16 April 2020: IDEX Biometrics ASA, a leading provider of advanced fingerprint identification and authentication solutions, today announced that its dual interface technology has been included in a recently certified biometric payment card. The certification was achieved with our partner, a leading European headquartered tier 1 payment card manufacturer. This is the second certified biometric payment card that includes IDEX’s technology, the other being issued on the China UnionPay network.

This certification is another critical milestone for IDEX. Its complete biometric solution, including sensor, software and matching algorithm, are now certified for biometric payment cards available on two leading global payment networks. IDEX is the only fingerprint company to have achieved certification for its system solution with two global payment networks. These networks between them represent 70% of the global brand general purpose payment cards. The certifications enable the transition from the pilot phase to commercialization and broad market adoption of biometric payment cards. The total addressable market for biometric payment cards is 8.2 billion units and growing.

IDEX Biometrics CEO, Vince Graziani commented, “This is another significant achievement for IDEX as it validates that our technology has passed the stringent certification requirements from multiple major global payment schemes. Certified payment cards including IDEX’s technology are now available for commercial launches globally.”
