M2SYS holds biometric chat on voice biometrics

June 19, 2012 - 

M2SYS, a recognized industry leader in biometric identity management technology, held its monthly #biometricchat conversation on Twitter last week.

The conversation featured Nik Stanbridge from Voice Vault, a voice biometric solutions company that caters to the financial services and healthcare industries.

Stanbridge noted that voice biometrics is an excellent security choice because they provide “a strong multifactor ID authentication layer that’s more secure and convenient to use than PINs or passwords”.
The session also examined the rise of multi-factor authentication for security and compliance, along with the technical challenges of voice biometrics solutions, which include viable non-telephone based voice applications.

The session also looked at the future industry growth opportunities for voice biometrics, why voice biometrics can be more secure that DNA and fingerprints, and how the technology works against fraud.

One of the most interesting posts by a participant argued that in order to reduce fraud, mobile devices of the future will need to recognize gait, voice and face in order to verify the owner’s identity.

The transcript of the #biometricchat conversation is available on the M2SYS blog.
