Identity and access management software provider Veridium announced the launch of vFace, its new facial recognition system focused on use in mobile devices.
“vFace, our facial recognition software, complements our existing digital fingerprint technologies on VeridiumID – a robust authentication platform. vFace can be implemented on any smartphone with a front camera – replacing expensive equipment with a frictionless and convenient app,” said John Spencer, Chief Product Officer for Veridium.
In addition to the launch of vFace, Veridium has also announced the development of its own patented behavioural biometrics system, which uses a mobile device’s sensors to gather data and find unique use patterns for each individual user.
These behavioural patterns could arise from the way a phone, biometric security feature or application is used in conjunction with the time of day or location, creating a unique ‘imprint’ for each user to create another layer of fraud detection in the case of a stolen or compromised device.
“Our behavioural biometrics capabilities signal a new era in cybersecurity. A malicious actor stealing someone’s device and attempts to impersonate their biometrics, will have a difficult time trying to replicate the genuine user’s unique mannerisms,” said Spencer.
vFace is now available as a part of the VeridiumID authenticator app on Android and iOS, and also as an SDK for businesses to integrate it into their own apps.
