3DAuth™ SDK is first to enable 3D facial authentication on iOS devices, providing secure digital financial services to more than 60% mobile devices owners[i]
LAUSANNE, SWITZERLAND – June 20th, 2017 – OneVisage, the award-winning and leading 3D facial authentication company today announced that it will unveil first 3D facial authentication solution that runs on iOS platform. As of today, there is no 3D facial authentication solutions available on iPhone or iPad mobile devices. According to market experts, first front 3D cameras and 3D facial verification solutions should be unveiled later, in Fall this year by few major equipment manufacturers.
“Today is a special day as we are proud to announce the first full 3D facial authentication solution that runs on iOS mobile devices. Financial services and identity management solution providers are looking to offer the same user-experience and high-level of security to all their customers, regardless if they use an iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S8 or Huawei Honor as an example. We can now potentially address more than 60% of mobile device owners in the world – aka more than 1 billion people – which probably positions us as the most universal and strongest authentication solution in the market.” said Praveen Gajjala, Sales Director EMEA of OneVisage.
Omni-channel management is key for financial services to offer the same experience to customers across branch, mobile and on-line channels. According to 2016 North America Consumer Digital Banking Survey made by Accenture Consulting, only 27% of consumers say that omni-channel experience is seamless.
“We listened financial services and learnt that omni-channel and universality are key features. Allowing customers to log in their e-banking account on their laptop or mobile device, by only using their mobile device, is now a must-have feature. Our 3DAuth solution is uniquely poised for being the universal solution to address nearly all authentication use cases for banks, payment service providers and card issuers, regardless the user’s mobile device platform.” said Brian Haverty, Vice President of Sales, Americas.
According to analyst Ming Chi-Kuo interviewed by Business Insider UK in February 2017, Apple’s next generation 3D iPhone camera could reinvent user experience.
“We are really impatient to see the first smartphones coming with 3D front cameras, which are foreseen to be unveiled in October-November this year. When combined to our unique 3DAuth technology, such devices will allow instantaneous, very strong authentication, users just making single shot selfies in few hundred milliseconds. Security will be seriously reinforced as it will be impossible to spoof such devices with a video, 3D avatar or virtual reality tool. We believe this will announce the beginning of the 3D facial authentication revolution that will supersede any other biometric alternatives, making passwords and pin-codes things of the past. This will be a major change in our everyday digital live. » said Christophe Remillet, CEO of OneVisage.
CEO Christophe Remillet and Praveen Gajjala, OneVisage EMEA Sales Director, will be exhibiting and meeting with financial services partners at Money 20/20 – Europe in Copenhaguen, Denmark. Christophe and Praveen will provide live demonstrations of the latest OneVisage authentication software developed for financial services, using both iOS and Android mobile devices.
