Our Story

Assuring the human shouldn’t be hard. It shouldn’t be hard for you or your team, but it is. Today’s solutions are incomplete and fall short of ensuring that you have the proper people performing the actions that the business intended. Weak passwords, shared credentials, and lost badges all challenge the integrity of data

Nymi builds security solutions that enable companies to be more secure, compliant and productive. Our solution allows employees to wear their credentials and authorize actions securely. Nymi currently works with the Top 100 companies in Pharmaceutical Manufacturing.

Wondering how we got here?

Nymi was founded in 2011 in Toronto, Canada, based on research conducted at the University of Toronto. The research was focused on the electrocardiogram (ECG) and its unique properties. The ECG is different for each individual, and our founding team worked to use the heartbeat as a biometric identifier for authentication.

Initially, Nymi (Bionym at the time) was focused on licensing this technology to third-parties and OEMs to replace passwords in hardware devices. Over time, the team identified the need not just to improve or replace existing tools of authentication, but to create a completely new model of authentication: continuous, on-body authentication.

To bring this concept to market, it became necessary to develop dedicated authentication hardware. This served as the foundation of what was to become Nymi (December of 2014), and our enterprise authentication solution, Nymi Enterprise Edition.

Nymi is located at 82 Peter Street, Suite 500, Toronto, Ontario, M5V 2G5.
