Vasco releases new face recognition feature for app

May 10, 2016 - 

Vasco Data Security International, Inc. has released Digipass for Apps Face Recognition, a new optional feature within DIGIPASS for App which enables organizations to improve security and user experience.

DIGIPASS for Apps Face Recognition is a secure and user-friendly feature that uses multiple facial data points to accurately authenticate end users, and next generation liveness detection to block hacker spoofing techniques.

Using a simple enrollment process, the face recognition option enables users to take multiple selfies to generate a highly accurate biometric template which is then encrypted and retained.

Additional contextual data, such as geolocation and device identification, can be analyzed in real-time by VASCO’s IDENTIKEY Risk Manager to provide the most accurate analysis of risk.

Using an encrypted secure channel, DIGIPASS for Apps Face Recognition ensures the highest level of security for data flow between the mobile device and the server.

As a member of the Biometrics Institute, VASCO developed its solution to adhere to the organization’s guidelines that promote the responsible use and development of biometrics according to the highest standards.

“DIGIPASS for Apps Face Recognition is an ideal solution for organizations focused on reducing fraud losses by improving security while also improving the customer experience,” said Jan Valcke, president and COO of VASCO Data Security. “We are happy to bring another innovation first to our banking clients around the globe.”

DIGIPASS for Apps Face Recognition is an optional feature within DIGIPASS for Apps, which is a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) that integrates application security, two-factor authentication and other features into mobile applications.

Using a full library of APIs, organizations can extend and reinforce application security, provide convenience to users, and streamline application deployment and lifecycle management processes.
