BEDFORD, MASS. – Feb. 9, 2022 – Aware, Inc., (NASDAQ: AWRE), a leading global provider of biometrics software products, solutions and services, announces that it has been awarded a 2022 Future Digital Award from Juniper Research for its Knomi® mobile biometric authentication platform. Knomi was named Best Mobile Identity Solution in the Security and Fraud category for the telecommunications industry by providing mobile network operators with a truly viable biometric alternative to inherently unsafe authentication methods such as the password.

With instances of identity and SIM-card fraud on the rise, Knomi provides telecommunications companies with a means to protect both their users’ identities and their own reputations, while simultaneously increasing customer accessibility to personal accounts and services.
“We have always believed very strongly in the benefits of our Knomi solution, and it’s thrilling to see it once again get the recognition it deserves,” said Dr. Mohamed Lazzouni, chief technology officer at Aware. “Knomi is an ideal authentication solution for many industries; including telecommunications where threats of identity and SIM-card fraud are on the rise. Our win with the Future Digital Awards confirms what we already knew about our product’s benefits, and we are very thankful for the recognition.”
The Future Digital Awards recognize organizations that have made outstanding contributions to their industry and are positioned to make a significant impact in the future.
