Revolutionising the Landscape of Remote Authentication
We live in a world where we each have a catalogue of passwords for a myriad of devices and accounts we can barely remember. Verifying ourselves has become a challenge. Worse yet, organisations that need to identify and verify us, have to put themselves and their users through the tedious experience of answering security questions.
What if there was a way to quickly and easily verify a user, without the rigmarole of a personal history lesson?
This year, Aculab is enhancing its biometric technologies with the release of SentryFusion. An AI driven biometric authentication solution that uses facial recognition and audio detection in unison, to accurately and rapidly verify people.
Why Biometric Authentication?
Biometric technologies are not new to us. They have already been significantly integrated into our daily lives. Most of us unlock our devices using our face or thumb. So what about it is revolutionary?
Putting biometric technologies in the context of fraud prevention, in 2022 over £1.2 billion was stolen through fraud. That's the equivalent to £2,300 stolen every minute. With the majority of fraudulent behaviour starting online, and an increased sophistication of fraudulent technology, it can become challenging to accurately identify and verify individuals.
Unlike traditional passwords and security questions, biometric technologies are able to recognise unique features. The distance between our brows and the cadence of our voice has become the key to unlocking a new era of remote authentication.
SentryFusion combines the power of voice and face biometric technologies. Drawing from VoiSentry (Voice biometric system) and FaiSentry (Facial recognition system), designed and developed by Aculab. The combination of both factors enables both a highly secure, and a highly accurate authentication solution, with near-instantaneous results.
SentryFusion enables video and audio material to be matched and analysed. By using video capabilities, which include both images and audio, SentryFusion is able to authenticate the image, and confirm that the person speaking in the video is the same person speaking in the audio. Therefore, these features enable you to verify individuals on a higher security level, overcoming sophisticated fraudulent technology like voice cloning, keeping yours and your clients data and privacy safe.
The true beauty of SentryFusion, is that once a person has been identified, they can be validated on any other media. For example, once a user's face and voice has been identified during a video call, they may later be recognised during a voice conversation, video call, or image.
This multimodal system includes a cluster-based architecture, providing effective scalability, robustness, and future-proofing. The option of hosting on-premise or in a data centre is also available. Additionally, the technology combines enterprise-grade security and ease of use, to create the optimal business and client experience.
The landscape of identifying and verifying individuals remotely, has evolved substantially in recent years, due to the need for more secure and seamless authentication methods. We are experiencing a transition away from passwords and pins, replacing them with identity verification options. The possible applications and benefits of these biometric technologies are endless.
