LumenVox Speaker Recognition Added to SmilePass Identity Verification and Authentication Platform

Sept. 25, 2018 (SAN DIEGO/MUNICH) LumenVox LLC and SmilePass Ltd. today announce the availability of voice based biometric authentication within the SmilePass Identity and Authentication Platform.

With the world's attention being drawn daily to data breaches, identity thefts and hack attacks, being able to conclusively prove a remote consumer's credentials are of paramount concern to businesses and governments alike.

The Identity Verification market is a burgeoning industry focused on delivering resilient and robust authentication technology in an easy to consume and quick to implement package that enables rapid Return-on-Investment. SmilePass are leading the charge of new disruptive players in this market by providing a best-in-class biometrics platform-as-a-Service, allowing organisations to deploy a simple yet effective means of validating their consumers.

With the inclusion of Voice-based biometrics as a second factor authentication modality in addition to existing face matching, the ability to be certain of a user's identity and presence is now significantly enhanced.

The deep expertise of voice-based biometric authentication from LumenVox means that SmilePass can now deploy the best of both worlds in unison; the latest developments in machine-vision alongside the proven reliability and user-acceptance of voice-based technologies, delivering a solution that delivers a combined value in excess of each modality separately.

Both organizations will be working together to ensure customers can benefit from the Platform, with combined marketing efforts and global sales presence.

"With the embedding of LumenVox technology into the SmilePass platform, enterprises can be assured that their users experience of biometrically authenticating themselves will be significantly enhanced, providing a better sense that their identities are being protected," stated LumenVox Chief Executive Officer Edward Miller.

"Including LumenVox voice technology means we're able to offer very strong verification at reasonable prices and for both our organisations to benefit from our respective ecosystems," said Grant Crow, CEO SmilePass.

Both organizations will be attending IP Expo 2018, at London ExCel on the 3rd and 4th October.
