The reseller agreement with ID R&D will allow rf IDEAS to supplement its readers with an extra layer of biometric authentication. The partnership covers ID R&D’s IDLive Face solution, as well as its voice biometric technology. IDLive Face uses passive liveness detection to prevent spoofing during a facial recognition scan, while ID R&D’s voice recognition tech is able to verify someone’s identity based on their vocal characteristics. The solution can take advantage of microphones that have been installed in a kiosk or a mobile device, and boasts vocal liveness detection to make sure someone is not using a recording or voice alteration tech.
As an ID R&D reseller, rf IDEAS is planning to pitch the company’s tech to clients looking for physical access control, and to those that want to safeguard mobile applications. The company believes that biometric technology will deliver strong multi-factor authentication without creating more friction for end users.
“When used in conjunction with our readers, [ID R&D’s biometric technology] provides a needed multi-factor authentication (MFA) capability to our customers,” said rf IDEAS Product and Marketing VP Raul Cepeda Jr. “This will continue our efforts to bring MFA to secure print and other logical access applications across all verticals.”
“Employees can share passwords, access cards, and even mobile devices. Biometrics have an advantage in that they are convenient and liveness detection protects them from being lost, stolen or shared,” added Alexey Khitrov, CEO at ID R&D. “As a result, businesses can be more confident that the intended person is accessing protected equipment and information.”
