HID Global’s HID Approve two-factor mobile authentication and verification platform now supports Apple’s iPhone X Face ID facial recognition system.
“With the growing demand for an optimized user experience, facial recognition is a great addition for banks and enterprises that also want a high level of security,” said Martin Ladstaetter, vice president, product management, IAM Solutions, HID Global.
HID Global customers can now implement Face ID using the company’s mobile authentication platform, either as a turnkey application or directly integrated into existing corporate apps using the HID Approve software development kit.
The company says it is able to combine facial recognition technology with threat detection and other risk-based intelligence so that organizations can more quickly recognize potential fraud or misuse while improving and personalizing the user experience.
HID Global also says it is developing new capabilities that make it easier for financial institutions to detect cyber threats, and facial recognition will play an integral role in delivering these capabilities, providing data to help fuel predictive analysis and other artificial intelligence capabilities.
