About Biometric Signature ID™

Biometric Signature ID™ is based in Dallas, Texas and is a leading developer of biometric ID verification software solutions using multi-factor authentication (MFA). Its innovative identity solution BioSig-ID™ authenticates individuals with a unique finger or mouse-drawn password. The simple change from a typed password to a drawn password turns your password into a multi-factor authenticator. Unlike other biometrics like fingerprints, BioSig-ID™ gesture biometrics do not require any special hardware.

Biometric Signature ID™ was founded by Jeff and Cindy Maynard. Jeff envisioned this identity solution years before the technology even existed to support it. Eventually he was able to realize his vision to reinvent the password. Jeff Maynard is CEO of Biometric Signature ID™ and Cindy Maynard is Chief Marketing Officer.

BSI has been awarded two patents from the US Patent Trademark Office for its revolutionary innovation. The company has developed additional security products built on BioSig-ID technology: BioTect-ID™ to secure devices, BioProof-ID™ to verify real-world identity, BioSight-ID™ for privacy sparing exam monitoring and Safe Exam Browser to turn any computer into a temporary secure workstation.

Honor of being chosen by U.S. White House

An additional honor for BSI was being chosen from 180 other companies/consortia by the U.S. White House to participate with Microsoft, AT & T, CA, AAMVA and the Virginia DMV to develop a pilot program to reduce online identity fraud. This is a response to the President’s executive order in October 2014 to improve security of consumer financial transactions by requiring multi-factor authentication within 18 months.


Biometric Signature ID™ has also been named to the prestigious committee which is developing the new Identity Proving and Verification standards (IDP-V) that will be ANSI (American National Standards Institute) approved. The IDV-V committee is overseen by NASPO (North American Security Products Organization).

The company’s growth curve has accelerated with the need for cloud authentication solutions. Its wide ranging client list ranges from higher education to legal marijuana distributors to medical groups.

Reliable and adaptable

Our school has used BioSig-ID™ since before I came along six years ago, but I have been the campus liaison for our students during my tenure. The analytics offered to assist in securing the integrity of our online campus are phenomenal and their customer service is superb. The product is reliable and adaptable. In a previous job I administered a biometric security system and I would have loved it if that system had been as solid as BioSig-ID™.

Best decision we could have made

At Belhaven University we started our relationship by including managed services. I have to say it was the best decision we could have made. Biometric Signature ID™ has provided us with deep dive insights into the data and given us confidence in closing the loop on those who have suspicious activity on their accounts.Honestly, without their help we would be floundering in making sense of the data. I can recommend managed services from BioSig-ID­™ without reservation.

Forensic Reporting tools has transformed the way we are able to combat suspicious behavior

Collaborating with BioSig-ID™ and using their Forensic Reporting tools has enabled Arkansas State University to quickly and seamlessly identify violations of academic integrity and really transform the way we are able to combat suspicious behavior. With ease of access to data reports that contains IP conflicts, comprehensive data analytics on biometric inaccuracies, etc. A-State has been able to actively work on identifying policies to address academic dishonesty in the online environment.

We appreciate BioSig-ID™ and our partnership

“We appreciate BioSig-ID™ and our partnership with BSI for many reasons; however, two are paramount. First, the student identity validation processes allow us to have peace of mind that our students complete their own work. Second, we greatly appreciate the partnership between ACE and BSI when issues arise. Specifically, David Chatham and BSI’s Forensic Reporting provides real-time guidance and analysis in integrity concerns and acts as a partner as we develop processes and policies.”

Product is easy to implement

Product is easy to implement. The support needs for students and instructors has been very limited. The team at Biometric Signature are always quick to respond and open to hear feedback for improving products. They also are ready to share resources and ideas to make implementation more successful.

Worked very closely with us

Biometric Signature ID™ worked very closely with us to customize the software for our learning management system, and the robust reporting tools allow us to track usage, validations, and even any invalidation’s that might occur.

Does not require hardware

BioSig-ID™ does not require students to purchase hardware or software which was important to our students. An additional benefit is the extensive reporting tool to uncover suspicious behaviors that can identify possible academic dishonesty.

Dr. Dana L. Watson, Central Texas College

It’s a significant leap forward not only in security, but in the ease of use and customer acceptance… an especially exciting breakthrough for community banks and credit unions.
