Cognitec Systems has signed an important software development and license agreement with Intel Corporation.
Under the agreement, the companies will cooperate to apply face recognition to access control on electronic devices. Logon to PCs, laptops, tablets, mobile phones, and other computing devices will become both more convenient and secure as the technology replaces conventional passwords.
“Intel is driving exciting advances in security and biometrics,” said Manish Tangri, Director, New Business, Perceptual Computing, Intel Corporation.
Tangri continued, “Our collaboration with Cognitec is a key ingredient in enabling secure yet easy-to-use, face-based authentication capabilities for consumers and enterprises.”
“Cognitec is proud of being selected by Intel for this important application of our technology,” said Alfredo Herrera, managing director of Cognitec.
“Face recognition will enable the owners of millions of computers, tablets and mobile phones to protect their devices and access them conveniently and quickly without having to remember passwords,” he added.
Intel staff said the Cognitec deal would advance its plans to improve authentication capabilities.Source: cognitec.com
