Frictionless biometric authentication and liveness detection

ID R&D uses the power of AI and the science of biometrics to transform the user experience.

Surprisingly effortless. Significantly more secure.

ID R&D combines extensive research in the science of biometrics with advances in AI to deliver award-winning voice, face, and behavioral biometric authentication software. We’re on a mission to make authentication simultaneously frictionless and significantly more secure. ID R&D technology works with digital and traditional interaction channels, IoT devices, embedded hardware and more.

Effortless Biometric Authentication

It’s getting harder than ever for businesses to protect themselves and their customers against fraud and data breaches.
Traditional authentication methods are not only frustrating; they are vulnerable to hacking.

Passwords are failing businesses and customers alike. Forgotten credentials, locked accounts, and time-consuming reset processes frustrate users who, on average, have more than 20 passwords to keep track of. These headaches lead to bad password hygiene — even in the midst of frequent security breaches. A PYMNTS study found that approximately 59 percent of consumers use the same password across multiple accounts, allowing cybercriminals to do even more harm once a password is exposed.

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 difficult to remember passwords, more 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.

What if there was an alternative that could strengthen security and improve the user experience?

This is where ID R&D comes in.

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 biometrics.

Backed by deep expertise and an extreme focus on R&D, we develop best-in-class biometric authentication software that is accurate, fast and user-friendly. The result is stronger security and an effortless user experience.

ID R&D delivers a complete approach to biometric authentication by answering two questions. First, is the person who they claim to be? This is the identity verification or matching step. Second, is the person a real person? This is the liveness step that combats spoofing or deepfake attacks. And we do this without friction.

With ID R&D, businesses get the most user-friendly experience on the market, combined with industry-leading, AI-driven biometric authentication capabilities.

Our Biometric Authentication 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.

ID R&D has developed a unique approach to biometric authentication that doesn’t require storage of any biometric data.

ID R&D’s SDKs and solutions are built on the following biometric technologies:

Voice Biometrics: Compares the characteristics of a person’s voice with a stored voice template or “voiceprint” to determine a match.

Facial Biometrics: Compares the distinctive patterns of a person’s facial structure, not eye or skin color, against a previously stored template to determine a match.

Behavioral Biometrics: Uses uniquely identifiable patterns in a person’s activity like the way they type, also called “keystroke dynamics”, to verify their identity.

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 offers the #1 rated speaker recognition technology, the #1 rated voice anti-spoofing technology and the first-ever passive facial liveness detection software, making it easier than ever to help the right people get to the right information, while filtering out imposters.
