About UnifyID
UnifyID’s goal is to solve one of the oldest and most fundamental problems in organized society: How do I know you are who you say you are?

At UnifyID, we believe it is time for authentication to be about you. Humans have always been considered to be the “weak link” in security. At UnifyID, we turn that around and use what is unique about each individual to enhance security. The best way to authenticate yourself is to be yourself.

UnifyID was unanimously named most innovative start-up at RSA 2017, SXSW 2017 Winner in Security & Privacy, and 2016 TechCrunch Disrupt Runner-Up. Recently, UnifyID was named a Cool Vendor by Gartner in Identity and Access Management for 2018. The company is funded by Andreessen Horowitz, New Enterprise Associates and Stanford-StartX.
