Fortress Identity adds passive facial liveness for biometric verification, authentication
Fortress Identity has upgraded its digital ID verification and biometric authentication-as-a-service with passive facial liveness, the company announced. Liveness detection leverages artificial intelligence (AI) technology to establish that a computer is communicating with a live human.
The platform leverages biometric facial recognition and passive facial liveness to match the user for transaction authentication and establish the user is alive, without any special movement.
The goal is to deliver a frictionless onboarding experience and transaction authentication without compromising security. Fortress Identity has developed a pioneering adaptive compound biometric authentication platform with a minimum of two biometric modalities, device authentication, network status and environmental feedback.
“Our advanced but low code platform removes the barriers of difficulty of implementing biometric authentication solutions, while allowing end user anonymity through tokenization, which further promotes decentralized identity initiatives,” Alessandro explained in the announcement.
Noting biometric authentication use in cases such as digital payments, e-learning and telemedicine, Alessandro Chiarini, CEO and founder of Fortress Identity said “we need to accurately, and with minimal friction, determine if a bad actor is trying to spoof the system (example a mask or deep fake) and gain access to a particular transaction and/or additional sensitive private user data, resulting in a loss for both the victim and the customer.”
Fortress Identity’s digital ID verification system is available for 195 countries and more than 7,000 types of documents. The biometric authentication-as-a-service platform is available in the U.S., Europe and Latin America and can be used for digital onboarding, employee verification via LDAP/AD, payments, telemedicine, e-learning, and logistics.
