BioConnect integrates FacePhi face authentication into biometric ID platform

June 16, 2017 - 

BioConnect has integrated FacePhi’s SelPhi face recognition system into the company’s agnostic biometric identification platform, BioConnect ID.

The joint solution will deliver facial recognition and a range of biometric-based identity methods to FacePhi’s banking customers and prospective partners in the banking industry.

The two companies have combined their expertise in a way that empowers a truly seamless and secure identification and authentication experience in both the physical and digital world leveraging biometric technology.

“This is an opportunity for both companies to expand the use of biometrics and enhance the security measures to authenticate without a password,” said Javier Mira, CEO of FacePhi.

FacePhi’s SelPhi enables users to authenticate their identity on a desktop or mobile device by taking a selfie, making the system an interoperable form of identity verification.

BioConnect ID is a platform solution that combines technologies from biometric vendors into a single identity.

Using a single platform, an API and SDK, enterprises are able to offer a streamlined identity with biometric authentication combining all biometric modalities and behaviors.

After passing BioConnect’s testing initiatives, such as the ability to be FIDO compliant, FacePhi’s facial recognition was selected for its high reliability, user experience, anti- spoofing capability and speed to deliver successful deployments with banking customers that are already using the technology.

“At BioConnect we vet each of our technology partners to ensure that we are providing a seamless experience and can empower our enterprise users to take ownership over the things that are rightfully theirs” said Rob Douglas, chairman and CEO at BioConnect. “We have been impressed with FacePhi’s live face detection as well as its accuracy, reliability and interoperability and we’re excited for the opportunities that we can tackle together as part of BioConnect ID.”

The companies will introduce their joint solution at Money2020 Europe in Copenhagen on June 26-28 at FacePhi’s booth.

Earlier this year, BioConnect and Genetec announced they are developing a joint enhanced biometric access control solution designed to address the varying needs of the banking and finance industry.
