BEDFORD, MASS. – Jan. 12, 2022 – Aware, Inc., (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software products, solutions and services, is pleased to announce that it has received a prestigious 2022 BIG Innovation Award from the Business Intelligence Group for its Knomi® mobile biometric authentication platform. Knomi was selected for the award because it presents a highly functional multimodal biometric alternative to the password and traditional multifactor authentication methods.

Knomi is a mobile biometric authentication platform that uses face and voice to enable highly secure, spoof resistant, and convenient multifactor authentication, eliminating the need for cumbersome and less secure passwords without additional hardware. With individuals relying on mobile devices more and more to access their personal information and assets, Knomi increases both accessibility to accounts and protection from contemporary cybersecurity threats, such as ransomware and large-scale data breaches.

“I am very happy to see that Knomi has been recognized yet again for its ongoing commitment to innovating today’s authentication methods,” said Dr. Mohamed Lazzouni, chief technology officer at Aware. “We believe that Knomi is the strongest, most convenient, and most effective passwordless authentication solution available today, and are thrilled to see it being recognized as such with the BIG Innovation Award.”

The BIG Innovation Award recognizes organizations, products and people that are bringing new ideas to life in innovative ways. With its potential to increase convenience and security for users, improve accessibility to services, and address widespread cybersecurity challenges, Knomi directly meets the award’s qualifications.
