ID R&D Releases AI-Based Biometric Security Solution for Mobile, IoT apps
Available through Samsung SDS Digital Identity Platform, the new feature increases user authentication accuracy by 40%
New York, NY: ID R&D, the multi-modal biometric security solutions provider offering proprietary AI-based behavioral, voice, and anti-spoofing user authentication capabilities, today released the newest version of its most advanced voice biometric security solution, IDVoice. Additionally, ID R&D is announcing that both IDVoice and its behavioral biometric security solution, IDBehave, are now available on the Samsung SDS Digital Identify Platform.
Applying the latest scientific breakthroughs to significantly enhance authentication experiences, ID R&D’s IDVoice is a mobile-optimized voice biometric solution that instantly authenticates enterprise users by evaluating more than 100 unique characteristics that comprise a user’s biometric voice signature. ID R&D’s unique and highly accurate voice biometrics use a low-memory footprint, which is perfectly suited for enterprise mobile and IoT applications and organizational IT teams can easily deploy for BYOD devices.
Gartner predicts that those investing in new authentication methods and compensating controls will experience 50% fewer identity-related security breaches than peers that don’t. With a focus on behavioral biometrics, voice biometrics, keystroke dynamics, and biometric fusion, ID R&D’s newest release of IDVoice, as well as its behavioral biometrics solution IDBehave, are now available via the Samsung SDS Digital Identity Platform. IDBehave is an advanced behavioral biometrics solution that evaluates unique device-handling patterns and the way people interact with devices to accurately verify their identity. This provides an extra layer of security to mobile devices beyond simple passwords. Utilizing both solutions, the Samsung platform offers enhanced security solutions that minimize fraud and protect consumers, while providing more robust security and an enhanced UX.
In a recent Samsung SDS blog, Richard Lobovsky, Vice President of Enterprise Solutions at Samsung SDSA, wrote, “The Samsung SDS Digital Identity Platform features Nexsign, a FIDO certified risk-based biometric authentication solution, which forgoes passwords in favor of biological information, such as fingerprint, facial or voice scan, to authenticate customers. ID R&D’s voice biometrics allows Nexsign to verify user identities by the way they speak (voice biometrics) or interact with devices (behavioral biometrics). Through the platform, users create a passphrase that could be as simple as a favorite sports team or the name of a pet, which they authenticate by speaking that passphrase into the phone.”
The latest upgrades to IDVoice included in the Samsung SDS Digital Identify Platform are:
- Anti-spoofing capabilities: IDVoice now addresses three types of attacks – recorded voices, computer-generated voices, and computer-modified speech.
- A smaller footprint: The newest generation of IDVoice algorithms have a much smaller footprint, which increases usability on mobile and IoT devices. Algorithms can be as small as 2 MB.
- Accuracy: The newest IDVoice version combines a proprietary p-vector approach with AI methodology to improve accuracy by 40%.
“Our goal at ID R&D is to make logging into a device, app, or website completely stress-free and frictionless,” said Alexey Khitrov, CEO at ID R&D, named a top 10 AI startup by Microsoft in its AI Innovate global competition and accepted into the Google Cloud for Startups program. “We’re excited to work with Samsung SDS to offer our advanced AI-based voice biometrics, anti-spoofing, and keystroke dynamics. A rapidly growing number of companies are turning to ID R&D to minimize the time taken to complete security checks and maximize the time customers spend on apps, websites, or devices. The ID R&D team, with over 25 years of experience in biometrics, is delivering simplified authentication for end users across a variety of industries including education, healthcare, banking, finance, automotive, and more – while offering unmatched security for vendors and organizations.”
