“Digital fraud has become a global crisis that mobile technology leaders are moving rapidly to address,” said Emilio Martinez, founder and CEO of AGNITiO. “The AGNITiO KIVOX Mobile SDK can provide an immediate solution that requires no special hardware and leverages the simple and natural act of speaking into a smartphone. This honor from Envisioneering is a testament to the hard work that has gone into making voice biometric authentication simple and secure.”

After three weeks of careful deliberation by five judges in North America and Europe, industry research firm Envisioneering recognized eleven out of thirty companies who launched new products during ShowStoppers, the product showcase event for journalists at GSMA’s Mobile World Congress, Barcelona. Award candidates were judged for innovation, design and style in 26 categories of social benefit ranging from personal entertainment delivery technologies to health and wellness, peace of mind for loved ones and clever biometric voice and eye control of devices with ID verification.

“The companies represented among this year’s winners are stepping up their tempo and pace of innovation,” said Richard Doherty, Envisoneering's Research Director and lead Judge. “With a keen focus on mobile products, services and lifestyle, they weave together original ideas in hardware, software, services and versatility to benefit the life of the consumer.”

KIVOX Mobile SDK-enabled Voice iD will also be demonstrated this week in the FIDO Alliance Showcase at the RSA Conference on Wednesday, February 26 in San Francisco, California.
