, provider of the fastest, simplest and most secure

patents related to innovations in iris recognition technology that the

The new patents include:

  • Patent 10042994 for Validation of the Right to Access an Object.
  • Patent 10025982 for Collecting and Targeting Marketing Data and

technologies in the broader marketplace.

Identity's latest inventions and team of biometrics experts," stated
Mark Clifton, CEO of Princeton Identity. "With over 11 patented
technologies in our portfolio and many more pending, we continue to

iris recognition-based solutions to ensure accurate and convenient
authentication of people and access to assets."

Princeton Identity's technology is present in the busiest international
airport in the world, prominent financial institutions, major
universities, sports stadiums and the largest American manufacturing
