Kansas-based biometrics tech firm EyeVerify is changing its name to Zoloz.

EyeVerify CEO Toby Rush confirmed the change in a blog post.

Rush wrote that the move accounts for the firm’s more extensive approach with security offerings.

“We will also be changing our name to Zoloz to reflect our more comprehensive solution for trusted digital identity,” Rush wrote. 

EyeVerify created the “EyePrint ID,” which transforms a selfie of a user’s eye into a biometric security key. It’s used by millions of people around the world to access mobile banking or other secure information.

In September 2016, Ant Financial —  the payments affiliate of Alibaba Group Holding — purchased EyeVerify for more than $100 million.
