Started in 2009, Zwipe is a biometric tech company that is focused on developing and commercializing secure, fast and easy to use biometric authentication solutions in three key areas, payments, access control and ID.
Headquartered in Oslo, Norway our rapidly growing and dedicated team is represented by 11 different nationalities cooperating across four different time zones. Working together, we have developed a truly unique and state-of-the-art innovation. Our award winning technology can be implemented in a wide range of high volume applications, however our focus at present is in payment cards, access control cards and identification credentials or badges. In our payment and identification cards, we have the world’s only biometric authentication engine that can perform full ID verification without the need for batteries or a fixed power supply.
Unlike the payment and ID solutions, our access control cards utilize batteries and offer the world’s most portable two-factor biometric access control credential. Compatible with the vast majority of access systems, our product allows you to upgrade to biometrics without having to change a single reader. All of our solutions make the need for biometric databases redundant, since the biometric data is securely stored on the card itself for each individual user. Only the rightful owner of the card can use it, and the fingerprint data cannot be extracted from the card. Unparalleled technical performance and peace of mind for both the organization and the end-user.
We make biometrics easy and at the moment our efforts are focused on continuing to develop and enhance the performance of our products while building strong partnerships with key stakeholders across the value chain.
