EyeLock Inc. is a technology product company in competitive Biometric Security industry. Today, the company offers multiple iris-based identity authentication and management products in physical security and mobile device security. EyeLock has registered several patents.
In its early days, the company established ground-breaking principles and algorithms for capturing an image of person’s iris as a form of identity. Consequently, the company started development of a prototype in hardware and software to bring these designs to fruition with a small IT outsourcing firm. Throughout the prototype development period, EyeLock recognized the need for a more expanded product development life cycle to commercialize its technology to an enterprise level customers. As a late-stage startup, it required a partner in the software engineering space with focus and experience in technology product development. Starpoint was engaged to provide assistance in organizing software development life cycle, expand, and in some instances replace, engineering teams to conduct ongoing product development and support, and launch multiple EyeLock products on the enterprise scale.
Starpoint has been working with EyeLock since 2014, initially, taking on a very aggressive one year program to bring products to a launch quality and to actual launch. Our initiative led to a new software product development with a two-year product roadmap, followed by integrations with products of vendors in the physical security space – Lenel, Tyco Security, Stanley Security, Genetec – delivering integrated solutions for physical security vendors that now include iris-based identity management. All participating devices operate in Windows and Linux environment, and interoperate with Access Control Systems of partnering companies.
EyeLock-Starpoint relationship continues today, now in its 6th year.
