ValidSoft Voice Biometric Technology Comes Of Age

"We predict the use of voice biometrics for authentication and transaction verification purposes will accelerate within the banking industry, and other verticals. Voice biometrics will equally become increasingly appealing to insurance companies, government agencies, telcos and retailers, in fact any business where the phone is used as a means to contact their customers," added Carroll.

ValidSoft has invested considerable research resources into voice biometrics, as one of the layers within its multi-factor security platform, on the premise that mobile phones will become the device of choice for banking and payments. As part of its research and development (R&D) program, ValidSoft has made strategic partnerships with leading universities in this field. ValidSoft's voice biometric research and commercial credentials have also been endorsed by specialist technology analyst TechNavio in its report, Global Voice Recognition Market 2012 to 2016.

Research in 2012 has consistently pointed to how the security industry could use voice biometrics to secure data and banking transactions. It advocates that voice biometrics, used correctly, can fill this gap by accurately identifying that the end user is genuinely who they claim to be. As the mobile payments world develops further, communication by voice is a natural way to enroll, authenticate and validate. If a person is connected, whether by data channel or voice channel, then voice can be solicited – entirely natural in the mobile world. Voice biometrics is also a dynamic biometric, unlike a fingerprint or an iris scan, therefore it has the inherent capability to be configured to be rendered useless in the event that it is stolen.

News of ValidSoft's achievement in the NIST Speaker Recognition Evaluation comes shortly after Opus Research, a top independent analyst firm in the voice biometrics industry, recognized the company as an industry leader in its Voice Biometrics Vendor Survey and "IntelliView" 2012.
