MADRID & PALO ALTO, Calif.--()--AGNITIO, worldwide market leader in voice biometrics, has been chosen as an Innovation & Design Award Honoree by Envisioneering industry research firm. Honored for its KIVOX Mobile software, AGNITIO is enabling the consumer device and app market to use simple, natural, universal voice for business and personal ID.

“Identifying the Human Voice in a Mobile and Web-Enabled World: Voice Identification for Business Applications”

Envisioneering judges selected the winners of the Innovation & Design Awards from more than 120 companies that launched new products during ShowStoppers, a showcase connecting vendors and media at the International Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV.

"Our judges were excited to assess the bold companies that bring emerging technologies to market at ShowStoppers," said Richard Doherty Envisioneering's Research Director and lead Judge. "Startups and multinationals alike have long recognized that ShowStoppers is one of the world's finest venues to introduce new products to top reporters and influencers from around the world.”

After three weeks of careful deliberation by five judges in North America and Europe, Envisioneering recognized 18 companies for 22 innovations that break new ground in technologies for work, home and play.

“Biometrics was some of the most talked about technology at CES this year for their ability to provide a secure and easy alternative to traditional passwords and PINs,” said Mike Goldgof, Vice President of Marketing for AGNITIO. “2013 tipped off consumer acceptance of biometrics with fingerprint sensors in mobile devices, and in 2014 we expect to see rapid integration of Voice iD in electronics and apps to protect consumers and increase profitability for commercial enterprises.”
