Point Roberts, WA and New York, NY - November 9, 2015 (Investorideas.com newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including tech reports on the recent Money20/20 2015 Conference held at the Venetian in Las Vegas and the role biometrics will play in the future of the payment industry.
Investorideas.com spoke to one of the exhibiting companies at Money 20/20 focusing on biometric security for the payment sector. Gino Pereira, CEO of NXT-ID (NASDAQ:NXTD) shared how his company is taking a unique approach to payment technology. Unlike an Apple Pay, his company’s Wocket® is separate from a phone.
They have also created dual authentication access with a combination of PIN and/or their voice recognition technology, VoiceMatch™.
Gino said, “All your information is stored in here - in this secure unit and as you select the items to pay, it programs one single card. In fact, it becomes a secure method by which you swipe and pay with the card of your choice. If you lose it, there is no identifying information on your card so nobody can take your credit card number. If you lose your Wocket®, all your information is stored securely so without the alpha numeric pin or voice biometrics to gain access, there is no way you can take over my Wocket.
