BARCELONA, Spain, Feb. 24, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- ShowStoppers @ MWC 2014 -- ImageWare Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: IWSY) (IWS), a leader in mobile and cloud-based, Multi-modal biometric identity management solutions, has today announced that it has been selected as an Innovation and Design Award Winner, 2014 for its Biometric Engine® (BE) a patented, real-time, high performance, Cloud enabled Multi-modal biometric database.  Visit ImageWare at Booth at MWC 7K08 Hall 7, mobile payment pavilion.

After three weeks of careful deliberation by five judges in North America and Europe, industry research firm Envisioneering recognized eleven companies for thirteen innovations which break new ground in technologies for improving work, home and play.  Envisioneering judges selected the winners of the Innovation & Design Awards from more than 30 companies who launched new products during ShowStoppers, the product showcase event for journalists at GSMA's Mobile World Congress, Barcelona.

The winners spanned from clever, efficient protocols which link the Internet of Things, to iOS and Android app toolkits to personal protection and peace of mind monitors for family members to biometric and eye control and log-in tools and products.

"The companies represented among this year's winners are stepping up their tempo and pace of innovation," said Richard Doherty, Envisioneering's Research Director and lead Judge. "With a keen focus on mobile products, services and lifestyle, they weave together original ideas in hardware, software, services and versatility to benefit the life of the consumer."

"In 2013, the United States alone saw more than 12 million identity fraud victims at a dollar cost of $24 billion, with the average financial loss per identity theft totaling $4,930.  Goode Intelligence predicts that by the end of 2015 there will be 619 million people using biometrics on their mobile device," said, Jim Miller, CEO of ImageWare Systems.  "We are honored to be recognized for our innovation in the next generation of identity management.  Legacy technologies are failing to protect business and consumer.  Cost effective, flexible, cloud based Multi-modal biometrics can authenticate and verify personal identity based human characteristics and cannot be replicated.  We are delivering new models that support the huge growth in mobile and desktop transaction, business and health services."     

Award candidates were judged for innovation, design and style in 26 categories of social benefit ranging from personal entertainment delivery technologies to health and wellness, peace of mind for loved ones and clever biometric voice and eye control of devices with ID.

Jim Miller, concluded: "Gartner's estimate of 30% enterprise adoption for biometrics as the authentication standard by 2016 presents a huge opportunity for ImageWare in the projected $400 billion dollar market place estimated for mobile payments by 2015."
