About Biometric Signature ID
A Dallas-based software company, BSI provides identity proofing solutions to reduce identity fraud through its patented BioSig-ID™ gesture biometrics technology. The technology works with any mouse, stylus or touchpad on any PC anywhere, anytime. BSI has patented the way to identify a person by the unique writing movements they make with their mouse or finger on any device. Your unique patterns of speed, direction, angle and length are unique to each individual and within seconds the software can verify if you are the same person who registered for the account. If you are not able to verify identity, access is denied. BSI was recently given a financial award from the White House/Dept. of Commerce to work with our partners AT&T, Microsoft, CA, AAMVA and Virginia DMV to use our technology as a solution to secure transactions over the Internet. BSI is working with a number of the largest institutions in higher education, financial services, online gaming and healthcare, providing identity authentication before users can access exams, bank accounts or personal health information.
