Veridium introduces facial recognition software to replace passwords with biometric layers

 

Veridium has launched vFace, its new biometric facial recognition technology, to bring high-end security to mobile apps and enable facial recognition on all mobile devices with a front-facing camera.

The new vFace software is available as part of the VeridiumID authenticator application for Android and iOS, and for businesses to integrate into existing apps through an SDK, according to the company announcement.

“vFace, our facial recognition software, complements our existing digital fingerprint technologies on VeridiumID – a robust authentication platform. vFace can be implemented on any smartphone with a front camera – replacing expensive equipment with a frictionless and convenient app,” comments Veridium Chief Product Officer John Spencer. “Businesses implementing biometric authentication such as vFace will see increased security, without the associated costs from substantial password administration and data breaches.”

The company has also developed and patented behavioral biometric technology based on data gathered from the sensors of a user’s mobile device, to provide an additional, seamless security layer. Veridium behavioral biometrics can be used with vFace, native device biometrics, and with other applications to improve security and fraud detection. Veridum added behavioral biometrics to its enterprise mobile authentication platform a year ago.

“Our behavioural biometrics capabilities signal a new era in cybersecurity. A malicious actor stealing someone’s device and attempts to impersonate their biometrics, will have a difficult time trying to replicate the genuine user’s unique mannerisms. By unlocking behavioural biometrics, Veridium can help businesses penetrate the final frontier in security in a way that is both transparent and seamless for the end-user,” Spencer continues.

“As we move to a passwordless society, it is crucial to take a strategic approach to implementing biometric security and authentication – selecting the appropriate biometric for the right use case. More choice also means a better user experience, for both employees and consumers.”

“The decision to move away from passwords to more innovative methods of customer authentication is an important one for us,” says bunq CEO Ali Niknam. “Integrating biometrics as part of a multi factor approach is hugely valuable in the fight against rising levels of fraud. At bunq we strongly believe in delivering the highest level of security and robust protection for our customers whilst providing them with the most seamless user experience, which is facilitated by Veridium’s cutting-edge biometrics.”

Veridium announced in December it would offer its multi-factor biometric authentication platform via the AWS Partner Network.
