Our Pioneering Iris Recognition Company

Our ground-breaking biometric solutions offer financial inclusion to some of the world’s most vulnerable people.

We eliminate fraud and provide unparalleled transparency, accountability and accuracy across the biometric identity sector.

The founders of IrisGuard spent the last 21 years supporting the most pioneering projects that defined the iris industry and delivered a number of world's firsts, providing solutions to large scale humanitarian challenges.

  • We created the UAE national first iris border control system when no one was sure iris recognition worked, which was followed with the development of our own world-leading camera systems that was needed to scale for millions of users with 100% accuracy.
  • Another world first and one of the defining moments of our growth was the design of the EyeGuard® AD100 iris scanner, the most accurate iris imaging system ever built.

IrisGuard products have been on the market for decades due to unmatched UK quality and engineering and our newest cameras are based on the same early principles we pioneered and patented, and which we’ve continued to build on.

Now, we are leading the way in iris payments, Blockchain and microfinance, having developed our own hardware, software and APIs which help bring assistance to millions of unbanked and annually processing USD$ 1.2 billion in humanitarian aid funding, equivalent to 9.3% of total global aid.

"Our deep understanding of iris recognition and the intricacies of detail, continued research and development, combined with our vast field experience has ensured our success and leadership in this field. However, most importantly, it is the mix of technology as well as implementation and direct field deployment in the real world that sets us apart from many other biometric providers"
