AXSionics AG draws a worldwide audience to Biel

Swiss IT security technology attracts business partners from all around the world

(PresseBox) (Biel, ) AXSionics AG, inventors of the biometric Internet Passport, has invited business partners from many parts of the world to its first International Partner Forum in Biel, Switzerland. From 21 - 23 January, more than 30 representatives of partner companies will discuss joint business activities with AXSionics, and will learn about the further evolution of its innovative security solution.

At the same time, AXSionics will celebrate the inauguration of its new headquarters in Biel, providing the necessary space for the company's further growth. This move marks the beginning of a new era in the development of the company that was originally founded as a spin-off from the Berne University of Applied Sciences in Biel/Bienne.

The AXSionics Internet Passport TM can be used in many online applications, including online banking. The potential range of applications for biometric authentication goes far beyond this example, and covers such diverse fields as secure personalised access to information or software applications, and even consumer services such as the secure access to online storage (for documents, photographs, and the like), or the absolutely confidential transmission of messages.

Not surprisingly, this generates strong interest from the international partners and customers with business in many different fields.

Alain, Rollier, co-founder of AXSionics and today Executive VP Sales & Marketing, is pleased with the international response. "The fact that our partners travel to Biel from around the world reflects their confidence in our solution, the business being generated with it and its growth potential "
