Your private data, which includes your financial details as well, is under constant threat of being breached in today’s super connected world, which still lacks security.
To build this biometric engine, Synaptics has collaborated with KeyLemon and integrated facial recognition into their multi-factor authentication system that already had a fingerprint scanner.
This security tech can be used on your smartphones, tablets and laptops as well.
“We are very excited to partner with industry leader Synaptics on a comprehensive solution that is secure and convenient. Integrating our advanced technologies enables an unsurpassed mixture of security and user convenience for trusted authentication in mobile payments, banking and other content sensitive transactions,” said Gilles Florey, CEO, KeyLemon.
The security engine also ensures that users’ financial data, as well as other sensitive information, is encrypted via multiple modes of authentication to avoid any breach. Performing transactions will also need users to surpass the multiple authentications.
“Adding multi-factor biometrics users achieve a whole new level of exceptional device- and application-level authentication. Phase one of our fusion engine is focused on fingerprint and facial, and future iterations will include additional biometric and security factors,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing, Biometrics Product Division, Synaptics.
Synaptics multi-factor fusion engine is backed by SentryPoint technology, offering OEMs a wide range of unique and highly secure authentication features including Quantum Matcher with PurePrint anti-spoof technology.
PurePrint technology makes sure that actual fingers are being put through the scanner and not a fake imprint of their design is being used to access the system via its artificial intelligence engine.
The facial recognition technology also uses anti-spoofing tools which ensure that it’s not a fake by judging the blinking of the eye as well as head movements of the user.
The company’s multi-factor fusion engine uses a combination of scores from multiple biometric authentication systems to verify the user accessing the system, making it all the more hard for any attacker to breach a system.
