According to the FIDO Alliance, passwords are the root cause of 80% of data breaches. As more and more stories of cyber attacks and sophisticated social engineering attacks surface, businesses seek stronger authentication processes and technologies.
Unfortunately, “strong security” often results in complexity in the form of frequent password changes, extra authentication steps and security challenge questions. And worse, some of these approaches continue to put users and companies at risk. For instance, the FBI recently sent a security advisory warning of attacks that bypass multi-factor authentication (MFA) solutions.
Biometrics offer the ability to strengthen security and improve the user experience.
IT research firm Gartner predicts that by 2022, 60% of large businesses and almost all medium-sized companies will have cut their dependence on passwords by half. Many are turning to biometric authentication.
Backed by deep expertise and an extreme focus on R&D, ID R&D develops best-in-class voice biometric authentication and passive voice and facial liveness detection software. These technologies facilitate stronger security, simplified personalization, improved fraud prevention, and a better user experience.
ID R&D Biometric Authentication and Liveness Technology
Our flexible biometric authentication SDKs enable businesses and partners to quickly take advantage of award-winning core technology and unique functionality for identity verification and liveness detection across online, mobile, traditional voice, and physical access devices. We’re also doing groundbreaking work to enable voice authentication on the edge.
ID R&D is focused on delivering best-in-class biometric products and innovative capabilities in the following areas:
Voice Biometrics: Compares the characteristics of a person’s voice with a stored voice template or “voiceprint” to determine a match.
Passive Voice and Facial Liveness Detection: Whereas biometric authentication verifies a user is a match with the authorized user, liveness detection identifies presentation attacks including the use of photos, masks, video, recorded voice, computer-generated voice and more to impersonate an authorized user.
ID R&D core Biometric Authentication and Liveness SDKs include:
- The #1 voice biometric accuracy based on industry challenge results
- The #1 rated voice anti-spoofing (liveness) technology based on ASVspoof.org challenge results
- The first ever passive facial liveness detection software to achieve iBeta Level 1 and Level 2 Presentation Attack Compliance (PAD), in accordance with ISO 30107-3
