NEW YORK — EyeLock Inc., a leading provider of iris-based identity authentication products and technology, has appointed Michael Fiorito as VP of enterprise accounts.

In this role, Fiorito will be responsible for managing all enterprise accounts and helping spearhead business development efforts which will expand EyeLock's footprint in the United States.

Prior to joining EyeLock, Fiorito worked with Stanley Black & Decker for 10 years managing national and international accounts. Fiorito has more than 13 years of national and international sales and marketing experience managing accounts and focusing on business development in various sectors, particularly security.

In his most recent role with Stanley Black & Decker, he was the international sales manager covering EMEA and Asia for distributors and end users of the CribMaster Inventory Control Software and Indirect Materials Management System. Fiorito has worked across verticals including industries such as wireless communications, aerospace, manufacturing, IT services, oil and gas and consumer products.

"EyeLock's technology is already changing the face of how we authenticate identity, and it's poised to become even more widespread as enterprise corporations continue to adopt the technology and see how truly game changing it is," said Fiorito. "I'm looking forward to being part of a team that is deploying technology that, in a matter of months, will be something we don't remember living without."

According to EyeLock, its suite of iris biometric technology products can be used to accurately, safely and securely authenticate identities in both physical and logical environments. It has been deployed across a variety of sectors, from financial services and healthcare to border control and homeland security.

"EyeLock's technology has already been adopted by many large enterprise companies, including Google, Bank of America, Kohl's and many more. We foresee an even greater demand for our products in the near future as we continue to have a presence in large, well known corporations and EyeLock becomes synonymous with secure identity authentication," said Jim Demitrieus, CEO of EyeLock. "We are pleased to welcome Mr. Fiorito to the EyeLock team, and we look forward to leveraging his expertise to develop and implement national business partnerships that take advantage of the technology's far-reaching applications."
