Iris ID Systems, Inc., a global leader in iris recognition technology is aiming to strengthen its stance at the forefront of accelerating multi-modal iris and face biometric adoption in the United Arab Emirates and surrounding Middle Eastern countries. Since 2013, Iris ID has pioneered its advanced identity authentication solutions with deployments at major Middle East airports and numerous government and commercial entities.
Iris ID, celebrating twenty-five plus years, has a suite of new hardware and software products ready to accommodate the expected 21% annual biometric growth rate through 2027 in this region as reported by US-based research firm Global Industry Analysts.
Innovation is at the heart of Iris ID research and development, the products are designed for practical real-life applications across many verticals and offer to ensure fast, accurate, and non-contact authentication. From smaller companies to Fortune 100 organisations as well as critical infrastructure spaces, more people authenticate with Irisaccess than with all other iris recognition products combined.
Within the Middle East, the company’s solutions are currently implemented at airports for access control, immigration identification, and land border crossings. Last year, Diyar United, a well-known information and communication technology company became the first Iris ID partner in the Middle East to use the new Irisbar in a self-service kiosk. This fully integrated kiosk is used in Egovernment services to provide registration and verification at airports for immigration and passenger check-in, as a gate pass within the oil & gas industry, in the Fintech industry as well as for National ID programmes.
In 2024, Iris ID continues to draw upon its deep industry experience to help companies and government entities in the Middle East modernise operations as this region is leading the world in technology innovation for processing people’s identities. Many of Iris ID’s multimodal iris and face biometric solutions offer flexibility, scalability, and third-party application development for customisation that reflects the organisation’s needs.
