ID R&D has been listed as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s 2020 Market Guide for User Authentication. This is the second time that Gartner has named the identity verification specialist as a Representative Vendor in the report.
“We are honored to be recognized once again in Gartner’s Market Guide for User Authentication,” said ID R&D President Alexey Khitrov. “Many authentication solutions are far from convenient, and this puts both the enterprise and end user at risk. ID R&D products enable stronger security and protect against fraud with significantly lower customer effort.”
ID R&D is best known for is face and voice authentication solutions, which can be deployed across a number of physical and digital channels. The company is also the developer IDLive Face, a popular passive liveness detection solution that achieved ISO 30107-3 compliance at the beginning of the year. IDLive Face can be integrated into other facial recognition systems, including those of recent customers like TECH5, Hive, and RelyComply.
