Hummingbirds AI has announced its partnership with Panasonic Connect North America (“Panasonic Connect”) in joining the company’s XCELERATE Software Application Developer Program for TOUGHBOOK Solutions (“Program”). The XCELERATE program presents the perfect opportunity to work closely with Panasonic Connect and its expansive partner ecosystem. This program specifically helps deliver customised TOUGHBOOK solutions for security and compliance to organisations in public safety, the government and private enterprise market sectors.

By combining Hummingbirds AI`s cutting-edge authentication tool with Panasonic`s suite of ruggedised computers, tablets and handhelds, the Miami-based vision AI broadens its ability to disrupt the workforce authentication market by empowering TOUGHBOOK enterprise solutions and its customers with a security solution that makes employees’ jobs easier.

“It is exciting and encouraging to be part of the XCELERATE Software Application Developer Program,” said Nima Schei, AI entrepreneur and CEO of Hummingbirds AI. “This partnership helps to bridge the gap between innovation and customers’ needs. As cybersecurity and especially authentication is getting more complex and costly, it becomes an additional burden for employees. Our goal is to make police operations secure and compliant while reducing the hassle of repetitive manual logins and logouts from public safety employees. A security that is not painful!”

GuacamoleID is Hummingbirds AI`s privacy-first touchless continuous authentication technology. GuacamoleID makes access verification to devices autonomous, continuous, verifiably trusted and convenient for employees. Since its initial release, this re-authentication tool has caught the eye of IBM and Masschallenge, won the Judges’ Award at the Embedded Vision Summit 2022 and featured in Forbes, the Annual Pitchbook Information Security Report, SXSW and Identity Week Europe.

“Panasonic Connect is committed to bringing purposeful innovation to the rugged enterprise and making it possible for companies like Hummingbirds AI to support the future of work,” said Jim Dempsey, Director of US Business Development and partnerships at Panasonic Connect. “Autonomous solutions, like GuacamoleID, have the power to positively impact businesses and workers, increasing productivity and maintaining compliance. We’re looking forward to seeing this solution made available for progressive public sector agencies as another example of Panasonic Connect’s continued investment in meeting the needs of our customers.”
