Samsung Teams With Sensory for Face and Voice Authentication
Samsung SDS, Samsung Group’s IT service provider is teaming up with Sensory to offer banks and enterprise customers high-security embedded face and voice biometric recognition technologies. Sensory’s TrulySecure technology will be added to Samsung’s FIDO biometric authentication offering. Samsung’s SDS FIDO Client product will use Sensory’s FIDO UAF Certified “Authenticators” for face and voice biometrics. As each party has been independently FIDO Certified, the full Samsung SDS experience will be compliant with FIDO UAF guidelines.

With this combined Samsung / Sensory authentication solution, users can open an application or complete a transaction in a secure and frictionless way by simply looking at their front facing camera equipped mobile phone, or by simply stating the selected passphrase when prompted by their mobile device. By fusing Sensory’s face and voice authentication technologies, an added layer of security can be achieved for higher value transactions by requiring both the users face and voice to be verified. Alternatively, by fusing the two biometric modalities, an added level of convenience can be achieved by requiring that only the user’s face or voice be verified. This enables accurate biometric authorization of either the user’s voice in the presence of poor lighting, or their face in intrusive noise, making user authentication accurate, quick and robust to all environmental obstacles.
This announcement builds upon other Samsung SDS announcements highlighting the aggressive expansion of its security, cloud, and new emerging enterprise solutions.
