About Biometric Signature ID
Biometric Signature ID is based in Dallas, Texas and is a leading developer of biometric ID verification software solutions using multi-factor authentication (MFA). Its innovative identity solution BioSig-ID authenticates individuals with a unique finger or mouse-drawn password. The simple change from a typed password to a drawn password turns your password into a multi-factor authenticator. Unlike other biometrics like fingerprints, BioSig-ID™ gesture biometrics do not require any special hardware.
Biometric Signature ID was founded by Jeff and Cindy Maynard. Jeff envisioned this identity solution years before the technology even existed to support it. Eventually he was able to realize his vision to reinvent the password. Jeff Maynard is CEO of Biometric Signature ID and Cindy Maynard is Chief Marketing Officer.
BSI has been awarded two patents from the US Patent Trademark Office for its revolutionary innovation. The company has developed additional security products built on BioSig-ID technology: BioTect-ID to secure devices, BioProof-ID to verify real-world identity, BioSight-ID for privacy sparing exam monitoring and Safe Exam Browser to turn any computer into a temporary secure workstation.

Honor of being chosen by U.S. White House
An additional honor for BSI was being chosen from 180 other companies/consortia by the U.S. White House to participate with Microsoft, AT & T, CA, AAMVA and the Virginia DMV to develop a pilot program to reduce online identity fraud. This is a response to the President’s executive order in October 2014 to improve security of consumer financial transactions by requiring multi-factor authentication within 18 months.
Biometric Signature ID has also been named to the prestigious committee which is developing the new Identity Proving and Verification standards (IDP-V) that will be ANSI (American National Standards Institute) approved. The IDV-V committee is overseen by NASPO (North American Security Products Organization).
