Sensory's TrulySecure face and voice biometric authentication software has become the first solution oif its kind certified by the FIDO (Fast Identification Online) Alliance for compliance with its Universal Authentication Framework) 1.0 specifications. The FIDO Allaince certification also ensures that products are interoperable with other products and services that support the FIDO 1.0 specifications.
"We recognize Sensory for building TrulySecure to be fully compliant with the FIDO Universal Authentication Framework specifications and are excited to add their innovative multimodal biometric authentication solution to the FIDO Alliance's prestigious roster of FIDO UAF Certified authenticators," said Brett McDowell, executive director of the FIDO Alliance, in a statement. "As more enterprises, application developers, and mobile device makers shift away from password authentication, solutions like Sensory's TrulySecure multimodal biometric authentication software will continue to prove valuable as an essential, secure means of authenticating users and keeping their data safeguarded."
Sensory joined the FIDO Alliance earlier this year to work alongside other companies eager to create more secure user authentication protocols. Sensory has been a strong supporter of the FIDO Alliance since its inception and has worked with companies like Nok Nok Labs to ensure the biometric authenticator portion of their authentication solution, powered by TrulySecure from Sensory, was fully compliant with FIDO UAF 1.0 specs.
"Sensory's TrulySecure is a great example of what can be delivered with multimodal biometrics, and we are happy to support the solution within our own FIDO-certified S3 Authentication Suite," said Ramesh Kesanupalli, founder of Nok Nok Labs, in a statement. "Enterprises are looking for turnkey user solutions that offer a mix of authentication methods. Working with Sensory allows Nok Nok Labs to provide its customers with a greater variety of solutions that offer superior security compared to vulnerable passwords."
TrulySecure leverages Sensory's speech processing, computer vision, and machine learning. Consistent with FIDO standards, TrulySecure is an on-device biometric not requiring a cloud connection.
"We at Sensory are huge supporters of the work the FIDO Alliance has done to create an exciting consortium focused on streamlining user transactions with on-device biometrics," said Todd Mozer, chairman and CEO of Sensory, in a statement. "Promoting biometrics for more than two decades, we are pleased that our TrulySecure technology has become the first multimodal face and vision biometrics technology to be awarded the status of FIDO-certified. By working with companies across the entire authentication ecosystem to certify the interoperability of their FIDO-certified technologies with TrulySecure, we have made it even easier for companies to integrate the industry's easiest-to-use and most secure biometric authentication technology within their products."
