USAA Reaches 1 Million Enrollments with Biometrics

USAA, a financial services provider for more than 11 million current and former members of the U.S. military and their families, last week reached the key milestone of processing 1 million mobile biometric enrollments.;

USAA integrated Daon's IdentityX Platform into its existing two-factor mobile app authentication for accessing USAA on their mobile devices. IdentityX expands the authentication options for USAA's members, allowing them to use their face and voice on their smartphones to authenticate. Daon offers a range of biometric technologies with IdentityX, including FIDO-compliant solutions.

"Achieving this rate of adoption by USAA clearly demonstrates Daon's ability to operate at scale, establishing us as the leading provider of mobile authentication globally," said& Tom Grissen, Daon's CEO, in a statement. "Watching the rapid adoption of biometrics by USAA and reading the complimentary tweets of USAA members is a testament to the desire to use this form of authentication and validates the efforts put forward by both organizations. We look forward to our continued relationship with USAA as together we explore more options to provide secure and convenient authentication methods for its members. We are firmly committed to supporting USAA's culture of going above and beyond and doing the right thing because it's the right thing to do."

"USAA is very excited with the advanced rate of biometrics adoption we have seen," said Rick Swenson, assistant vice president of enterprise financial crimes management strategy and analytics, in a statement. "Reaching the milestone of 1 million enrollments is a strong testament of our members' preference to use a biometric when authenticating. By offering a biometric in conjunction with our very secure Quick Logon solution, USAA is able to provide our members both a highly secure and convenient means to access their accounts. We thank Daon for their work throughout this exciting implementation and for the IdentityX Platform that allowed us to provide more options for our members."
