CAPTURING THE MOST UNIQUE PHYSICAL IDENTIFIER
IrisGuard has been utilising iris scanning technology in the field since 2001.
The iris is unique to every individual, including identical twins. This means that iris recognition is one of the most reliable forms of biometric authentication, enabling us to identify one-out-of-millions in real-time, without the need for cards, PIN numbers, private keys or bank accounts.
To date, our iris recognition solutions have been used across 190+ countries and are validated by independent studies for their scientific reliability and accuracy. Read on, to find out how iris recognition works, as a precise and rapid biometric authentication solution…
Safe and Secure
Our iris recognition solutions provide a simple and highly efficient way to identify individuals who may not otherwise have access to conventional physical identity tokens. Essentially, this is how the iris scanning and enrolment process works:
We have secured nine patents, including pupil-dilation detection, off-axis gaze, video attack detection and more. Our technology is medically safe and does not harm the eye in any way.

How biometric authentication works so accurately
Quality Control & Countermeasures
Pupil-dilating eye drops containing Atropine Sulphate and similar chemical compounds have been used in an attempt to fool iris recognition systems. Pioneered in 2005, IrisGuard’s patented technology detects abnormal dilation and alerts the operator to their presence in the eye
Patterned contact lenses may hide the human iris and can fool the iris recognition system. All IrisGuard imagers are trained to detect pattern contact lenses by means of careful pattern-analysis and other effective countermeasures, preventing their use in lie operations.
A human blinks approximately 30 times a minute, lasting for a duration of roughly 400 milliseconds. IrisGuard ground-breaking blink technology analyses images at the rate of 40+ frames/second, prequalifying and precluding images that do not meet IrisGuard legendary quality controls.
There is an increased chance that a person will not be found by the iris recognition system if they simply look away from the camera. IrisGuard has off-axis technique and head-tilt detection that immediately alerts the operator.
The specular reflections that form on a person's glasses require them to remove their glasses before using some iris systems. IrisGuard has designed and patented a technology that allows the person to conveniently keep their glasses on while using our system.
Authenticity and liveness
IrisGuard images utilise patented techniques in both our hardware and software, which detect and stop high resolution images or video streams of a person's iris being used by an imposter.
