Hoyos Labs Receives Envisioneering Innovation & Design Award at the 2014 ShowStoppers at the Consumer Electronics Show
Date:1/10/2014

LAS VEGAS, Jan. 10, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Eureka Hall, The Venetian / Booth #75006 -- The era of usernames and passwords is finally over, and all one will need to log onto social media profiles, conduct transactions and sign into banking account are his or her biometrics and smartphone. At this year's ShowStoppers at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), Hoyos Labs, a digital infrastructure company, received the Envisioneering Innovation & Design Award for its recently launched app, HoyosID.

This new identity assertion platform is a free, easy-to-use and virtually unhackable iPhone and Android app that uses a multi-biometric recognition system – including the face, iris and periocular region – to confirm one's identity, with a unique "liveness" component to distinguish a living person from a photograph or video. 

The end-to-end technology aims to protect both consumers and corporations by leveraging smartphones as real-time biometrics pattern acquisition devices – with no need for additional hardware to carry – and moving authentication out of a browser's username and password fields and onto mobile devices at no cost to users.

"My team is honored to have been recognized by ShowStoppers at CES for the launch of HoyosID, our new identity assertion platform," said Hector Hoyos, CEO and founder of Hoyos Labs. "For years, we have collectively worked to combine our knowledge and expertise in the biometrics, IT and technology fields to create an attractive product that would secure the material of both individuals and companies in a convenient and cost-effective way, without requiring people to carry around an additional gadget to keep personal information safe."

"People are beginning to realize that we need a better system in place to keep our private material protected, and usernames, passwords and log-ins are, without a doubt, not the solution – they have failed us all too many times and are so vulnerable to hacks," Hoyos added. "Imagining a world in which all we need to access our personal accounts on the Internet is our face and a smartphone – no additional tokens – has now become a reality, and we are eager to expand the applications of this technology further into the financial services space." 

Hoyos Labs is led by Hector Hoyos, whose security and defense products have helped to protect lives and properties for decades. In addition to holding multiple patents, he also invented the HBOX and EyeSwipe biometrics identity authentication technologies and founded Global Rainmakers, Inc. (later renamed EyeLock Corp.).
