HYPR has had a big year in 2017. On the heels of a funding round that brought in $3 million in venture capital toward the end of 2016, HYPR launched its biometric security platform for e-commerce in January, and proceeded to get the server component of its platform FIDO certified just a few months later. In summer, Gartner named HYPR a Cool Vendor in retail, and the company just announced a new funding round that brought in $8 million.
Catching up once again with FindBiometrics President Peter O’Neill at this week’s Money20/20 event in Las Vegas, HYPR CEO George Avetisov discussed that new funding and what was making investors so excited about HYPR’s solution. Avetisov also offered some hints about what’s next for HYPR, and delved into how two recent major news events — the Equifax breach and the announcement of Apple’s Face ID system — are impacting the digital security industry.
