MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) - Cybersecurity company Confirmix has raised $1.25 million to support the commercialization of technology originally developed at West Virginia University.

The university and the Morgantown-based startup firm announced the funding on Monday.

Confirmix will use the funding to develop biometric technology for consumer identity and authentication products.

Officials say the innovative biometric technologies first developed in the WVU Multispectral Imaging Laboratory.

One of the earliest versions of the technology led to SecureSelfies. The app uses a “selfie” as a security measure to lock a phone.
