ID R&D launches multi-factor, multimodal mobile authentication solution

May 18, 2017 - 

Biometric technology firm ID R&D launched a mobile biometric login solution earlier this week at TechCrunch Disrupt NYC 2017, marking the company’s first product.

The patent-pending IDSquared combines a simple and intuitive user interface with behavioural biometrics, facial recognition and liveness detection.

Designed to provide a seamless UX and improved mobile authentication experience, IDSquared requires users to type a word into the mobile device while looking at the screen.

By doing so, uses reveal their face to the front-facing camera for a picture and the system’s facial recognition feature verifies their identity — all with the user’s consent.

The interface allows IDSquared to provide multi-factor (knowledge-based and biometric) authentication, multimodal (behavioral and facial recognition) biometrics verification and liveness detection through behavioral biometrics.

“So far the biometric industry has struggled to combine the accuracy of multi factor / multimodal authentication with the simplicity of user experience,” ID R&D CEO Alexey Khitrov said. “IDSquared bridges this gap. All we ask users to do is to type one word.

“From the moment the user starts typing, IDSquared collects multiple data points for a multi-layered authentication analysis. This is a very exciting time for our company. We are launching our premier product at one of the biggest tech conferences in the world and looking forward to wondering and awing the participants. We have a unique offering and are proud to announce our science-driven authentication technology for mobile login and conversation interface.”
