The HYPR biometric security platform was recently featured in a CBS News Las Vegas story on technologies that are being developed to thwart identity theft. Reporter Mauricio Marin covered CEO George Avetisov’s expert commentary on the need to combine tokenization with biometrics, for example when shopping online, to achieve the highest level of security assurance.

Consumers and merchants are asking for the best available solution to the nagging, sometimes catastrophic instance of identity theft. HYPR enables users to select the type of biometric authentication they prefer and decentralize credentials by storing them on-device.
