LONDON, Oct. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ --
WHAT: On Wednesday and Thursday, 14-15 October, Hoyos Labs, the leading biometrics-based end-to-end authentication infrastructure company, will introduce its new biometric four-finger (4F) technology – which captures four prints simultaneously, providing an unprecedented level of security / reliability – as well as discuss the new biometric standard for secure transactions (BOPS). The exhibit will highlight how enterprises from financial services to healthcare are implementing Hoyos' biometric solutions.
ABOUT 4F: 4F is a biometric invented by Hoyos Labs, which captures four fingerprints at once and is one of the most secure biometrics available, boasting 150 degrees of freedom. It is so accurate that it can identify a person from the entire world's population. 4F was invented to address the difficulty of capturing biometrics, like facial recognition, which can fail with adverse lighting conditions. 4F works in any environment, because it uses the phone's flash as its light source with no external hardware required.

WHEN: 9.00 – 17.30 on Wednesday 14 October
9.00 – 16.00 on Thursday 15 October
WHO: Hoyos Labs founder and CEO Hector Hoyos has been involved in biometrics since 1998 when he founded Biometrics Imagineering. His iris biometrics technologies are in use by millions of people worldwide. Hector co-developed, along with Stanford Research Institute, the Praetorian Technology, which was awarded the largest contract ever by the Department of Defense at $325 million for a computer vision-based surveillance technology. He deployed the first ever token-less physical access control with iris-only biometrics throughout Bank of America in 2010. Hector also co-invented BOPS (Biometrics Open Protocol Standard), which IEEE announced earlier this month as an official standard.
WHY: With trillions of dollars of transactions executed daily, businesses need advanced methods of verification more than ever. Hoyos Labs founder and CEO Hector Hoyos will discuss the advent of biometric mobile solutions, including his proprietary authentication technology, which uses a smartphone's rear camera, without any additional hardware, to capture a person's fingerprints in a matter of seconds, leading to much higher reliability and security for the user.
