Is Biometrics 100% Secure?
We have all become very familiar with consumer technology using a biometric sensor as a means of user authentication. Technologies such as Apple TouchID, FaceID, or FingerPrint on Android, has provided a convenient and frictionless mechanism to unlock our phones and even gain password-free access to our mobile applications, such as our mobile banking app.
The challenge with these native biometric sensors built into phones is that it does not definitively prove the identity of the user. Phone PIN’s are always the failover when biometric sensors fail to recognise the user and if a phone PIN is compromised, it would be easy for a new biometric template to be added to a phone either as an additional template or as a new template.
For high risk, high value, or high privileged access, this security flaw can be a concern for many organisations who need to have higher levels of confidence the user is who they claim to be.
Enter Biometrics on Mobile
Veridium have addressed this concern by adding Veridium InMotion, a User Behaviour Analysis to an authentication attempt to add increased levels of security and provide higher levels of confidence of the individual’s claim of identity.
Taking telemetry data from the mobile device and using Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence, to learn and match user behaviour, InMotion complements the biometric check of technologies such as TouchID or FaceID, to bring heightened levels of security to organisations who are looking for extra security for user access.
Veridium = User Experience + Security
Veridium InMotion is a transparent security layer, learning a typical user behaviour when authenticating or re-authenticating. Behaviour scores can be actioned by the Veridium server or 3rd party risk engine and used in conjunction with other phone data such a GeoLocation to provide intelligent authentication to organisations.
InMotion is not tied to any biometric and can be used alongside native in-built biometric sensors as well as software biometrics such as Veridium 4 FingersTouchlessID.
What is VeridiumID?
Enterprises face many challenges as they try to deliver digital services to an increasingly dispersed end user community.
Existing solutions on the market force customers to make a choice between security and convenience in order to achieve these goals.
We believe uncompromised user experience and best in class security are no longer mutually exclusive.
VeridiumID is all that any business needs to implement strong, passwordless authenticaton and have the best employee and customer login experience.
