[siteorigin_widget class="SiteOrigin_Widget_Image_Widget"][/siteorigin_widget] VOICE ALONGSIDE FINGERPRINT: DOUBLE YOUR SECURITY, DOUBLE YOUR BENEFITS Banks globally are widely incorporating fingerprint technology in their digital apps for customers to securely access their personal accounts and make transactions. The main reason banks are moving away from traditional pin and password approach to fingerprints is to make the user experience simpler and more convenient. No pins to remember no passwords to forget. Fingerprints improve some aspects of security however out of band, second factor security verification is still needed for higher risk transactions. Enabling voice prints to be used as the second factor completes the journey for simplicity and convenience and adds high security and regulatory compliance whilst eliminating annoying (and not very secure) SMS 6 digit tokens or RSA one time password generators. Voice is the…

[caption id="attachment_1990" align="alignleft" width="1024"] “Like your fingerprint, your voice is unique. So, like a fingerprint, banks can use voice for strong identity authentication and improve customer experience.” Clive Summerfield, CTO, Auraya[/caption]   BIOMETRIC SECURITY SOLUTION FOR BANKS Like many industries, most banks are fast followers of a few highly innovative oganizations.

Here’s how politicians and senior officials benefit from voice biometrics

Here’s how politicians and senior officials benefit from voice biometrics

Recalling the incident when the British Prime Minister David Cameron got a call from an apparently “drunk hoaxer” claiming to be the director of Britain’s eavesdropping agency - it is an excellent example that highlights the importance of caller identity verification, especially in secure telephone services used by politicians and senior officials. A simple and effective solution, already used by Government Agencies outside the UK, involves the use of Voice Biometrics to positively verify callers before putting them through. In this solution a caller enrolled on the system simply states their name in response to a voice prompt. The system compares their voice against the enrolled voice print to confirm the caller’s identity.  Once confirmed the call can be forwarded with a reassuring message that this is a call from an…
