The product offerings are believed to bring to market increased-performance authentication solutions, optimised for logical access, and targeting highly sensitive security applications within the enterprise, public sector, healthcare, and defence industries.

As per their statement, the IDEX Biometric collaboration brings technology and systems to market and supports the company’s ‘disruptive approach’ for upgraded security via a phishing-resistant device. The spokesperson said that PONE’s OFFPAD solution that leverages the IDEX Biometrics sensor solution will launch in Q2 2023, adding that the close partnership with IDEX Biometrics has been critical in furthering the accelerated release.

Catharina Eklof, CCO of IDEX Biometrics stated that Pone Biometrics’ solution addresses an immediate market need, that of increasingly secure authentication that is both easy to use and deploy. The company official advised that as over 70% of reported security breaches originate through disparate endpoints like mobile devices or Wi-Fi-enabled laptops, the OFFPAD solution targets organisations that look to avoid the vulnerabilities and burdens associated with passwords and PINs.

What is more, collaborations with tech companies like PONE Biometrics enable IDEX to further showcase use cases for biometric-based solutions, with the representative adding that in addition to securing payments, biometric cards are becoming a standard approach to digital authentication.
