AWARE INCORPORATION Presence in Biometric as a Service
Aware, Inc. is a leading provider of biometrics-as-a-service products and solutions. The company’s software products are used in government and commercial biometrics systems to identify and authenticate users. The applications of the company’s biometrics systems in the government industry include visitor screening, border control, national defense, law enforcement, intelligence, access control, secure credentialing, and background checks. Moreover, the commercial applications include user authentication for logging into mobile devices, computers, networks, and software programs; physical access control to buildings and screening; user authentication for online and in-person financial transactions and purchases; and background checks of the prospective employees and customers. The company also focuses significantly on innovations, new product development, and R&D. In 2016, Aware, Inc. spent 31.9% of its overall revenue on R&D activities. Moreover, the biometrics software license sales of the company increased to USD 9.6 million in 2016 from USD 7.9 million in 2015. The company reported that the increase in the software license revenue was primarily due to the significant software license sales to the Navy in the first quarter of 2016, the United States Marine Corps (USMC) in the second quarter of 2016, and a systems integrator/US government end-user in the third quarter of 2016. The company also reported that this increase in revenue was offset by lower license revenue from commercial customers and non-US government customers. This highlights that the company is focusing majorly on the government sector for increasing its revenue. These strategies are expected to aid the company in increasing its market presence.
