As 2015 comes to a close, we wanted to take a moment and wish our partners and supporters a wonderful Holiday and Happy New Year. This is also a great time to reflect upon 2015 and what has been an exciting year for Nymi.
It began with the shipping of the Nymi Band Discovery Kits (our beta developer hardware) in late 2014. Our enterprise partners and developers quickly demonstrated some impressive applications with the device and SDK; from online banking access to geo-presence validation and even contactless payments, developers quickly created exciting applications using the Nymi Band’s continuous authentication technology. Since day 1, the Nymi Dev Community has been an important part of our story as we build a Nymi-enabled future. With the upcoming launch of SDK 3.1, we’re excited to see what we can build together.
Early on in 2015, we made an announcement regarding our decision to not yet release the Nymi Band to the world, and keep the product in its beta stage. We shifted our focus to further enhancing the Nymi Band’s Core Experience, while entering into partnerships and pilots that have helped us prepare the product for release. The latter has helped us explore some incredible use-cases, from physical access to contactless payments. In July, we announced the completion of the world’s first biometrically-authenticated wearable payment using your heartbeat, followed by our involvement in MasterCard’s tokenized payment program. We also broke ground on pilots unifying physical and logical access in the enterprise, whereby the Nymi Band is being used by multinational organizations for computer and application access, and physical access to doors and other secure spaces. These pilots are instrumental for Nymi as we gather learnings and enhance our product.
As a company, Nymi is laser-focused on creating a more secure and convenient future for authentication. The recent announcement of our new CEO reiterates our focus on improving security in the enterprise space, and making the Nymi Band a commercial success. 2016 is shaping up to be a transformational year for Nymi, and we are so excited for what’s in store.
To celebrate the 1 year anniversary of our dev kit, we are offering the Nymi Band Discovery Kit for the discounted price of $99 (regularly $149). This offer is valid until December 31st. Visit shop.nymi.com and enter the discount code ‘XQ56475RK6NG’ to take advantage of this offer.
On behalf of all of us at Nymi, we wish you a safe and happy holiday season and look forward to sharing some of the exciting news that’s planned for 2016!
