Applied Recognition launches Ver-ID face authentication software

August 12, 2015 - 

Applied Recognition Inc. announced it has released Ver-ID face authentication software to replace the tedious and unsecure authentication practice of PINs and passwords.

After years of thorough research and development, Applied Recognition has developed Ver-ID, which the company calls the next step in multi-platform face authentication.

Ver-ID ensures the full protection of a user’s data upon login, as well as throughout the entire session while the user interacts with apps on mobile and desktop devices.

Applied Recognition posted a video demonstration of Ver-ID Face Authentication software.

As demonstrated in the video, the two-factor authentication method matches something you own (iPad) with something that you are (user’s face) to unlock an application.

Ver-ID unlocks the application while the user is in front of the device and captured onscreen. However, the moment the user steps away from the device and is no longer captured onscreen, the software locks the application.

The software is designed to integrate with existing password-based systems to ensure that there is little that the developer needs to change in order to pair it with their application.

Additionally, Ver-ID offers an added security level to any SAS, cloud/web application or independent app in a user-friendly way.

The software can be configured to meet a various levels of security needs, making it beneficial to a range of industries including banking, online education, automotive, SaaS services and many others.

The Ver-ID software is now available for multiple platforms, including iOS, Android, Mac and Windows.

Previously reported, Applied Recognition announced it has received two patents related to its face recognition technology.
