Commonly referred to as a replay attack, a voice recording could be used to impersonate a user to expose confidential information such as bank accounts, medical records or other personal data. AGNITiO's patented anti-spoofing technology provides the most effective protection available today against such attacks. It instantly detects the difference between a live human voice and a recording, without the need for any additional verification steps such as random phrase repetitions. This one-step voice authentication functionality provides state-of-the-art, effective and practical anti-spoofing protection and delivers a superior mobile user experience.
"Relevant and essential to user authentication vendors and mobile device manufacturers, the AGNITiO Voice iD platform is being rapidly integrated into a variety of mobile applications," says Mike Goldgof, VP of Marketing for AGNITiO. "Among all voice biometrics engines on the market, AGNITiO Voice iD is uniquely secure and easy to use, is FIDO Ready today and immediately available for simple integration and deployment."
