Voice biometric service firm vocaONE announced it is now offering vocaPASS, a voice biometric-based, free account authentication service.
vocaPASS is designed to appeal to security-sensitive account services, including online subscription services, social networking services, ecommerce websites, mobile apps, network gateways, and other high-impact data services.
As the first commercial product to deliver voice biometric passwords as a free, IP-based service, vocaPASS provides a cost-free solution for companies to strengthen their account authentication protocols.
vocaPASS works by securing a voice biometric from the customer when they register with a website, app or network service, which it collects from a voice authorization statement that is secured directly through the browser.
Whenever the customer returns to login from that point on, vocaPASS collects another voice print from the customer.
If the incoming voice print matches the registered biometric, vocaPASS the customer access to the account.
“Everyone wants better online account security,” said Shea Writer, director of vocaONE. “And everyone wants it for free. Though vocaONE will also offer a suite of premium voice biometric security services, we are proud to be launching vocaPASS.com. Now, anyone can add a voice biometric security layer for free via simple Internet API.”
