ValidSoft UK Limited signs North American customer for voice authentication platform

April 2, 2015 - 

ValidSoft UK Limited announced it has signed a new commercial customer contract for its newly updated voice biometrics-based User Authentication Platform with a large US-based corporation with over 100,000 employees globally.

The large US corporation, whose name ValidSoft did not disclose, will be deploying ValidSoft’s voice biometric solution to authenticate its thousands of US-based out-of-office workers and control their remote access to their work systems and data.

The solution will ensure increased security while delivering an improved user experience for their employees.

ValidSoft said its User Authentication Platform is the only voice biometric solution currently available that has achieved certification for a European data privacy seal.

The new platform is the first product the UK-based company has released in the United States, after undergoing a year-long portfolio review and re-engineering effort designed to streamline its product line and accelerate growth across new market sectors and geographies.

“This contract is a major milestone for ValidSoft and an important validation of our voice biometric technology and User Authentication Platform, not only because of the scale of this deployment, but because our technology was chosen after an intense review of competitive solutions, including the incumbent provider and market share leader in voice biometrics,” said Paul Burmester, CEO of ValidSoft.

“We could not be more proud of our team for their commitment to our ongoing product development and commercialization efforts, which resulted in this successful contract award. This marks the second large-scale deployment in 2015 for ValidSoft following the recent deployment of our Device Trust solution, in partnership with FICO, at a large UK based financial institution.”
