Christophe Remillet, Founder & CEOWith more and more regular services becoming digitalized, identity theft has emerged as a serious concern, costing more than two hundred billion dollars yearly worldwide. The available authentication tools such as passcodes, pin codes, and security tokens have come to be too complex, painful, unsecure, easy to spoof or too expensive. Also, on an average, more than 30 percent of transactions are abandoned due to the complexity of 2-step authentication process. Even Biometric modalities such as fingerprint, iris, retina, and palm vein suffer from problems such as requiring a very specific and expensive hardware, intrusive nature, and susceptibility to spoofing. These biometric modalities also happen to be irrevocable or unchanging as they are not affected by time, making any criminal breach of the biometric data to be lost for entire life. This has created an urgent need for a safer and simpler digital authentication means. Spearheading this urgent necessity is OneVisage, a Swiss-based authentication company, offering cutting-edge three-dimensional (3D) facial authentication solutions to financial services, Identity & Access Management (IAM) providers and cyber-security integrators, enabling millions of consumers to make digital transactions in a secure, simple, and cost-effective fashion.
Unlike other conventional authentication technologies, OneVisage’s 3D facial authentication technology is built on the basis of capturing tens of thousands of points and texture information which is unique to every human face. The technology is highly accurate, capable of distinguishing individuals virtually on 1.2 billion devices, agnostic to user perspective, making it universally acceptable across all cultures. It is also resistant to any picture, mask spoofing attacks or video replay attacks, and revocable, as a human face is susceptible to continuous changes, thus making the technology as secure as possible.
OneVisage offers two core products based on its 3D facial authentication technology, namely the 3DAuth Facial Software Development Kit (SDK) and 3DAuth Platform as a Service (PaaS). While 3D Facial SDK allows developers to quickly and seamlessly integrate 3D facial authentication technology into native mobile applications, the 3D Auth PaaS offers off-the-shelf 3D facial authentication at a very low effort and nearly zero-integration.
Designed to support any mobile device, OneVisage's 3D facial Auth is the only technology that is operable on iOS systems, Android and Microsoft Windows
Both these products are platform agnostic and universally operable. “Designed to support any mobile device, any RGB or depth camera, OneVisage’s 3D Facial Auth is the only technology that is operable on iOS, Android, and Microsoft Windows platforms,” states Christophe Remillet, Founder and CEO, OneVisage.
While a number of authentication platforms focus on security end-up compromising on the customer experience, but not OneVisage’s 3D Facial Auth. “With 3D Facial Auth, users will never have to memorize tens of passwords or pin-codes again. They can simply make a short video selfie, and the 3D Facial Auth engine reconstructs an accurate 3D face model,” states Remillet. In addition, 3D Facial Auth requires no training and can be enrolled in less than fifteen seconds, making it a sheer enabler of great customer experiences.
OneVisage looks forward to providing a secure software container that can generate trusted execution environment (TEE) for smartphone transactions. Also, it intends on fool-proofing the technology against any security challenges that the advanced 3D printers might create by constructing a duplicate facial identity. Finally, OneVisage is determined to propel the efficiency of its solutions, trying to reach its overarching goal of distinguishing identical twins. With all these plans, OneVisage is steering ahead in paving the path for a scalable, easy to use, and highly secure 3D facial authentication solutions.
