    Aware’s Offering Tops the List from US Companies Ranked by MINEX III on Generator and Matcher Leaderboards

    This latest ranking confirms Aware’s fulfilment in satisfying all requirements for both Level 1 and Level 2 PIV complianceBEDFORD, Mass., Jan. 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aware, Inc., (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software products, solutions and services, today announced its results in the NIST MINEX III (Minutiae Interoperability Exchange) evaluation—a test used to establish compliance of template generators and template matchers for the U.S. Government's Personal Identity Verification (PIV) program. NIST’s MINEX III evaluation is generally considered a stringent benchmark for state-of-the art fingerprint template generation and matching. Aware is one of only two US companies to achieve this certification and its offering ranks the highest from US companies for template generators and matchers. The MINEX III is an interoperability standard test for fingerprint recognition software, which is run by NIST, and evaluates the compliance of template generators and template matchers across different vendors. MINEX III is tested on a dataset that generates 2 million finger templates and performs around 3 million finger matching operations per submission. Aware submitted its fingerprint biometric algorithms to test in the pooled two-finger ranking for both template generator and template matcher evaluations.“Compliance with the PIV program is often a mandatory requirement for worldwide public and private organizations that use or require fingerprint technology. This is because it guarantees both the security and interoperability,” said Dr. Mohamed Lazzouni, chief technology officer of Aware. “By completing this certification, Aware has taken on the investment required to get certified so that our customers do not have to undergo this process themselves. We are extremely proud to not only offer this for our customers, but to also rank among the best, representing one of only two US companies recognized.”Aware’s fingerprint generating and matching capability is used in its AwareABIS™ family of products and its AwareXM™ solution.More information about the entire suite of offerings from Aware can be found on Aware’s website.About Aware Aware, a global leader in productized biometrics software products, solutions and services, provides critical biometric functionality to collect, manage, process, and match biometric images and data for identification and authentication.

    Aware Extends Market-Leading Mobile Biometric Face-Matching Technology to Address Masks

    Woman Authenticating on Mobile Device Aware's Knomi--a leading mobile biometric authentication framework--directly addresses individuals that are wearing masks with no sacrifice in ease of use or performance.Latest Knomi® Version 2.13 Release Accurately Matches Masked and Unmasked Images without Sacrificing Speed or UsabilityBEDFORD, Mass., Dec. 08, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aware, Inc., (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software products, solutions and services, today introduced Knomi version 2.13, a market-leading mobile biometric software product offering face-matching technology that directly addresses individuals that are wearing masks with no sacrifice in ease of use or performance. This version adds a significant new biometric capability to Knomi’s robust core identity-matching and authentication solution, offering users high levels of confidence and security during the pandemic when mask-wearing is prevalent. While facial recognition technology error rates have decreased significantly in recent years, performance has struggled in matching situations involving masks. Attempts to match images of people wearing masks who were enrolled in a database without wearing masks returned large numbers of random matches and low levels of accuracy. With Knomi 2.13, an improved face recognition algorithm can now match masked faces with unmasked images in the database accurately. Aware continuously improves and optimizes face-matching technology with face liveness, voice liveness and voice matching capabilities, enabling Knomi 2.13 to provide our customers with the benefits of the highest levels of secure and convenient mobile onboarding and passwordless authentication available.“We’re proud that we’ve been able to deliver this important innovation to the biometric authentication market at such a difficult time for society,” said Bob Eckel, president & CEO of Aware. “Users need to be confident that facial images will match accurately, whether masks are on or off. With Knomi 2.13 our customers can be sure that their identity-matching and authentication procedures are solid and irrefutable. We believe our facial recognition, voice matching, and liveness capabilities stand alone.”While other face-recognition systems in the market have improved their accuracy in recent years, they have done so by reducing performance speeds. Knomi 2.13’s upgraded face-recognition algorithm offers improved accuracy at higher performance speeds, removing the need for customers to sacrifice.Knomi 2.13 also doesn’t require users to re-enroll images in the database, eliminating a major cause of friction in the process.Knomi is a mobile biometric authentication framework that applies a variety of biometric algorithms to enable more secure and convenient mobile onboarding and passwordless authentication experience. Its web services and mobile device SDKs work in concert to perform biometric capture, liveness detection, and matching, with face and voice modalities supported.More information about Knomi is available on the Aware’s product webpage.About Aware Aware, a global leader in productized biometrics software products, solutions and services, provides critical biometric functionality to collect, manage, process, and match biometric images and data for identification and authentication.
