How they describe themselves: Hypori’s Android Cloud Environment or ACE Platform was developed to address the challenges of secure mobility in the United States DoD. A mobile-first thin client solution, it provides remote access to virtual mobile devices running in private, public, or hybrid clouds: Virtual Mobile Infrastructure (VMI). VMI solves BYOD challenges with a secure and separate OS accessible from mobile devices. Today the company has both government and commercial customers, including financial services.
How they describe their product/innovation: In conjunction with a Fortune 100 financial services company, Hypori has added support for remote access to Bluetooth peripherals such as barcode scanners, card readers, and receipt printers. The use case is Point of Sale (POS), and the goal is to improve security for credit card transactions from mobile devices by moving the POS app off the mobile end point to a locked down, instrumented operating system running in a secure data center: POS as a Service. Hypori is demonstrating a mobile credit card transaction leveraging remote Bluetooth peripherals for the first time on the Finovate stage.
