VoiceVerified Launches Point Service Provider (PSP) Service
NEW HOPE, Pa. - VoiceVerified launched its patent-pending voice verification delivery platform, the VoiceVerified Point Service Provider (PSP). This hosted service model comprises a patented collection of microprocessor-based control, telephony and storage devices and application software that acts as a remote, on-demand voice enrollment and verification service.
The PSP platform combines multiple voice biometric algorithms and programs used to measure the characteristics of a voice and then mathematically model them as a voiceprint. During enrollment, a set of random numeric phrases is collected and a voiceprint is created, utilizing a text-independent methodology.
Verification occurs when a client's identity management system or call/contact center routes the call to the VoiceVerified redundant operations center, where the system prompts an individual to repeat five random numeric digits to create a voice sample. The voice sample is then compared to the stored voiceprint to evaluate pitch, cadence and numerous individual characteristics of voice and speech patterns.
VoiceVerified holds a variety of trademarks and patents and has numerous other intellectual property projects under development. The core technologies related to the delivery platform are the PSP, a patent-pending system and method of subscription identity verification utilizing multiple factors, and the Ensigma technology and associated patent, one of the core features of the patented Dynamic Voice Challenge (DVC) component of the PSP.
The PSP service will initially use text-independent verification utilizing random numeric challenges to allow deployment across multiple cultures, regardless of native language.
The DVC component of the PSP encapsulates the voice biometric engines, noise cancellation and filtering functions. VoiceVerified anticipates launching an additional DVC component, adding Free Speech, in the second half of 2006. This text-independent verification engine captures a voiceprint using a series of phonetically balanced sentences. It will allow comparison against static pass phrases, random speech or a combination of both.
Voice verification is the only practical biometric that can be used to secure remote transactions. VoiceVerified doesn't hold account numbers, Social Security numbers, or other personal data, only the consumer's voiceprint.
