Applied Recognition launches Ver-ID Face Authenticator
Applied Recognition’s Ver-ID Face Authenticator is now available for security professionals and network administrators to quickly and inexpensively deploy advanced face recognition technology, eliminating a reliance on passwords.
Ver-ID Face Authenticator (FA) enables the addition of a face recognition check to any network access control system by redirecting authentication after the user enters a traditional password to a fast, simple app that guides the user through a short series of randomized poses to confirm liveness and, once authenticated, the existing login process is resumed, having added just a few seconds to the password-only process.
“We’ve designed a platform with the objectives and constraints of IT professionals front and center,” said Ray Ganong, Applied Recognition co-CEO. “The FA server is easily incorporated into any architecture, within the firewall, and creates and maintains an auditable visual trail of login attempts as well as providing central management of the solution.”
“Password exploits are the cause of the clear majority of damaging network breaches,” added Don Waugh, co-CEO. “With the availability of Ver-ID Face Authenticator, there is no longer any good reason, let alone any good excuse, to delay addressing IT’s top security vulnerability.”
Ver-ID Face Authenticator is available for Windows PCs and Android and iOS devices. Pricing starts at $20 USD per seat, per year.
