Biometric Signature ID, B Virtual partner on new biometric authentication solution

 

Biometric Signature ID announced it has formed a new venture with online proctoring partner B Virtual Inc. in which the companies will offer a new biometric authentication solution called Sure-ID.

By combining Biometric Signature ID’s gesture biometric, BioSig-ID with B Virtual’s live online credentialing professionals, Sure-ID matches the biometric identity established by new users to legal documents that provide proof of identity.

This legal confirmation and real-time witnessing at the point of identity creation sets a new standard for authentication by linking legal identity with biometric identity for the first time in a consumer product.

BioSig ID’s approach to gesture biometric relates to how users draw their passcode using a mouse, finger or stylus. In an independent test, BioSig-ID was found to be 99.97% accurate in blocking impostors.

“We are thrilled to have been the chosen partner for Sure-ID,” said B Virtual CEO Rick Beaudry. “Having our live online professionals utilizing BioSig-ID’s technology 24 x 7 worldwide will ensure that the person who creates their biometric signature is being credentialed and then watched as a first step in the process.”

B Virtual’s credentialing confirmation protects users from those individuals attempting to gain access to their private information by creating a false identity using their own gestures to generate a drawn passcode.

Sure-ID is designed to help healthcare and education institutions, and financial and corporate entities by authenticating and verifying online identities throughout their lifecycle.

“Sure-ID adds the necessary insurance that the person creating their passcode is really who they say they are,” says Jeff Maynard, CEO of Biometric Signature ID. “BioSig-ID provides truly formidable security, but it is designed to authenticate the user who created the password. Sure-ID is a way to prove beyond a doubt that the person who creates the identity is the same person legally. That’s the radical step forward here.”
