Aculab’s VoiSentry extends functionality

 VoiSentry now includes speaker identification and detailed presentation attack detection

PRESS RELEASE: 30 March 2020 – Milton Keynes, UK – Aculab, a global provider of API-driven advanced speech and signal processing technologies, is pleased to announce the latest version of its voice biometric system, VoiSentry.

This release introduces a speaker identification capability that can be used in applications ranging from fraud and nuisance call interception to frictionless access. VoiSentry’s presentation attack detection (PAD) functionality has also been extended: during verification, VoiSentry categorises any suspected presentation attack according to the technology employed (along the lines of the FIDO specifications).

• Improved accuracy due to continued algorithm development and the incorporation of the latest voice biometric technology
• Docker Container deployment option (Linux host)
• A new API call to check whether audio recordings originated from the same utterance

VoiSentry, Aculab’s voice biometric system, utilises a combination of Machine Learning (ML), Artificial Intelligence (AI), advanced Digital Signal Processing (DSP), and many proprietary and hand-crafted algorithms, to achieve state-of-the-art accuracy in real-world situations.

VoiSentry provides a quick and cost-effective way to add voice biometrics to almost any automated business or customer interaction solution, whether on-premise or for cloud-based delivery. As a result, businesses using such solutions will be able to replace costly, time-consuming, and essentially frustrating identification and verification processes, simply by allowing their customers to interact using their voice.

“Regardless of the customer interaction channel, users want to present an unobtrusive and intuitive customer experience without having to compromise on security. At the same time, across all market sectors, businesses have to compete in terms of that experience, while fulfilling an overarching obligation to provide the highest levels of security of access to personal accounts and services. However, it’s not just about customer interaction as the technology of VoiSentry can be deployed for many use cases, such as workforce management, temporary employee placement, and the verification of exam takers,” states Alan Pound, Founder and CEO at Aculab.

“VoiSentry is designed as a scalable voice biometric system that is simple to install and integrate, with several deployment options in terms of platform environment,” explains Ian Colville, Product Manager at Aculab. "Control of Aculab’s system is via the VoiSentry API, which facilitates ready integration with any IVR, self-service, workforce management, or contact centre solution.”

“The VoiSentry API provides a palette of functions: enrolment; verification; update; PAD; similarity; identification; and recognise. Using the API, the solution developer retains full scope to tailor their applications to the target businesses’ needs. That means they can implement unique services on a per client basis, with a return on investment across a range of measures, be that fraud mitigation, customer satisfaction (or NPS®), ROI, or staff effectiveness – productivity, utilisation, engagement, etc.,” elaborates Colville.

For solutions developers or providers offering services to multiple clients, VoiSentry presents an ideal option. A multi-tenant contact centre solution, for example, can offer speaker verification and identification as a customer interaction security feature, simply and conveniently, to individual businesses, where each has full, independent control over the creation of datasets against which its users’ enrolments and verification or identification attempts are performed.

Highly scalable, supportive of multi-factor authentication, and with innovative resilience and database persistence features, the new version of VoiSentry is available now. To explore the system, click here or for any further information, contact Aculab.

  • Multi-lingual speech recognition now supported on Aculab Cloud

    We’re listening – what would you like to do today?

    A generation of people have grown up trying to avoid ringing a contact centre – not because they didn’t like talking to the cheery people who work in such places, but because they first had to get past the IVR system put in place to direct the call. Press 1 for support, 2 for sales, 3 if you know the extension of the person you wish to speak to.…and so on, and so on. We quickly realised that many of these systems would let you bypass the IVR menu and get to a real person if we pressed ‘0’.

  • How to leverage voice biometrics to boost the value of your solutions

    The regulatory landscape and the cost of fraud are making organizations increasingly aware of the need for strong authentication, and what that means.

    Biometrics are being adopted by organizations across a broad range of verticals to secure the voice channel. In many cases, however, how to take full advantage of voice biometrics is not clear to either the organization implementing the technology for the first time, or the OEMs and system integrators who are delivering it.

  • Jail time for biometrics

    The people who work in the Broadville Retention Centre, a temporary home for semi-retired hoodlums, love working there. The centre in south-west London, England, has views of flightpaths from Heathrow Airport; sights evocative of the freedom temporarily denied its residents. Workers at the centre on the other hand enjoy freedom of movement, not only in coming and going according to their shift patterns, but also within the building complex.
