Keyless Technologies is a deeptech cybersecurity company building a privacy-preserving biometric authentication and personal identity management platform that serves the full spectrum of workforce and consumer authentication use cases.

The biometric technology provides secure, intuitive and consistent multi-factor authentication for employees and consumers, eliminating the need to process and store biometric data by combining multi-modal biometrics with advanced cryptography and a distributed cloud architecture.
