FaceTec launches 3D facial recognition software for mobile apps
Facial recognition technology developer FaceTec has released ZoOm, a universal 3D facial authentication software solution.
ZoOm is able to verify identity, three-dimensionality and liveness using only a front-facing camera when it is added to any mobile app on any iOS or Android device. The solution allows mobile app publishers to significantly improve security, while users experience the convenience of password-free authentication.
ZoOm uses proprietary patent-pending TrueLiveness technology and measures the change in perspective distortion from up to 30 selfie video frames, proving three-dimensionality.
The mobile solution works in all lighting conditions, features an intuitive interface and takes less than two seconds to authenticate the correct user.
“Fingerprint sensors and iris scanners haven’t replaced passwords because they lack the ability to detect human liveness, leaving them susceptible to spoofs,” said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. “ZoOm detects liveness, is virtually spoof-proof, and can turn the billions of iOS and Android smart devices in use today into biometric authenticators.”
ZoOm is available in over 30 languages, supports all devices running iOS 8.3+ and Android 4.3+, is FIDO and iBeta certified, and delivers a False Acceptance Rate (FAR) of over 1/50,000.
The ZoOm Software Development Kit (SDK) can be downloaded by all mobile app developers with plugins for Xamarin, Appcelerator/Titanium, Phonegap, Cordova, Ionic and React Native.
The SDK is free for all startups, developers and small businesses with less than $10 million in annual revenue, as well as for non-profit and educational organizations. Larger organizations, enterprise and government can purchase ZoOm on a per-user, per-month basis.
The fully functional ZoOm UX demo app can be downloaded on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store under “ZoOm Login”.
