Aculab improves VoiSentry voice biometrics encryption features, updates algorithms
Aculab has extended the functionality of its voice biometric system, VoiSentry, and introduced new capabilities to its presentation attack detection (PAD) and its verification and authentication algorithms.
The UK-based provider of API-powered advanced speech and signal processing technologies announced that the latest version of its VoiSentry software is built with better encryption designed to provide extra security for the recording and storage of digital voiceprints, and includes an extension to its biometric PAD function which categorizes suspected presentation attacks based on the technology they use.
Aculab also upgraded its PAD functionality earlier this year and added support for deployment through Docker containers.
The company said the upgrade comes as the UK Office of National Statistics announced a 23 percent surge in cybercrime.
Steve Beet, principal research and development engineer at Aculab praised the move and said it falls in line with the company’s desire to continue to its fight against cyber-fraud by adding innovations to its system.
“This makes our customers’ systems more secure, and the processing of genuine callers frictionless. The new release of VoiSentry also boasts improved presentation attack detection to mitigate against spoofing attempts, and optional audio encryption for even greater privacy,” said Beet.
Aculab said with the upgraded system, companies can provide quick and cost-effective voice biometrics to their automated business or customer interaction solutions, whether on-premise or for cloud-based delivery. This means that customer identification and verification processes by these companies will become much easier and less expensive as they are carried out by voice interaction. The new VoiSentry version is also said to be ideal for solutions developers and providers serving many clients.
The software is highly scalable, supportive of multi-factor authentication and with innovative resilience and database persistence features, Aculab further explained.
VoiSentry employs a number of algorithms that enable state-of-the-art- accuracy in real-world situations. These algorithms include Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and many proprietary and hand-crafted algorithms.
