SensibleVision has introduced a facial recognition authentication solution based on 10 years of research and development that has generated six patents.
According to a company statement, the “spoof-proof” solution cannot be fooled with photographs or video.
“Secure and simple authentication on all devices is a priority for today’s users who do everything from banking to sharing confidential medical information on their phones, tablets and computers,” explains says George Brostoff, Co-founder and CEO of SensibleVision. “Our advanced approach leapfrogs current liveness detection technology with a patented simultaneous, multifactor authentication process that addresses a fundamental flaw in facial recognition: fooling software with a simple photograph.”
This approach recognizes the user’s face (something you are) while at the same time another identifier is captured that can range from a gesture, a fingerprint, choosing a secret shape on the screen, speaking a passphrase or even your GPS location (something you know, or another highly personal factor).
The company says the entire process takes just 1-2 seconds, speeding access while improving security and delivering the benefits of multifactor authentication for accessing apps and devices.
