Morpho’s ‘selfie-based’ mobile biometrics authentication solution has been certified by FIDO (Fast Identity Online) Alliance, validating the quality of Morpho’s implementation of FIDO standards and ensuring interoperability among other FIDO compliant products and services.
With Morpho’s solution, service providers can easily deploy facial authentication for secure access to their services for all customers on mobile devices currently on the marketplace.
The company’s face authenticator solution utilizes face recognition for smart phones and tablets and liveness detection to replace traditional user verification methods such as a PIN or passwords for easier to use, more secure and private authentication.
“The days of relying exclusively on password-based security are coming to an end,” said Morpho chair and CEO Anne Bouverot. “Through face recognition, a simple selfie enables users to both prove and link their unique identities to their smart phones and tablets. In the fight against identity fraud for mobile transactions, Morpho is developing with FIDO viable solutions which are easier to use and protect consumers.”
Just last month, Bouverot shared her insights on the future of the digital identity market as well as the company’s plans to accelerate its momentum in this market through strategic product development.
