Facial recognition and fingerprint biometrics supplement a comprehensive library of mobile application protection solutions
VASCO® Data Security International, Inc., a global leader in authentication, electronic signatures, and identity management today announced DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition which provides organizations a frictionless authentication option to enhance security and improve the user experience.
DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition is a simple, secure and user-friendly feature that utilizes multiple facial data points to accurately authenticate end users, and next generation liveness detection to defeat hacker spoofing techniques.
DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition uses a simple enrollment process. The user takes a series of “selfies” to create a highly accurate biometric template which is then encrypted for protection and stored. To authenticate, the user simply takes a “selfie” which is compared with the stored biometric template. A proper match, based on an accuracy score, completes the secure authentication process. Customers can further strengthen this process with additional contextual data, such as geo location and device identification. This data can be analyzed in real-time by VASCO’s IDENTIKEY Risk Manager providing the most accurate analysis of risk.
DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition also leverages a unique encrypted secure channel to ensure the highest level of security for data moving between the mobile device and the server. As a member of the Biometrics Institute, VASCO developed its solution to meet the organization’s guidelines that encourage the responsible use and development of biometrics according to the highest standards.
“DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition is an ideal solution for organizations focused on reducing fraud losses by improving security while also improving the customer experience,” stated Jan Valcke, President and COO of VASCO Data Security. “We are happy to bring another innovation first to our banking clients around the globe.”
DIGIPASS® for Apps Face Recognition is an optional feature within DIGIPASS® for Apps. DIGIPASS® for Apps is a comprehensive software development kit (SDK) that natively integrates application security, two-factor authentication and other features into mobile applications. Through a complete library of APIs, organizations can extend and strengthen application security, deliver unprecedented convenience to users, and streamline application deployment and life cycle management processes.
