You can tell a lot of people about their facial features and facial expressions, such as whether they are dissatisfied or frustrated, how old they are, and how much weight they have. As a result, popular smartphones use face recognition as the authentication method of choice, and Jumio Authentication, the new Jumio Authentication provider, uses Palo Alto-based authentication to authenticate users with face data.
Jumio Authentication The company, which is officially launched today, is a tool that companies can use to prove that users are the ones they claim to be. It combines biometric data for identity proofing and "continuous" 3D face authentication. Nevada-based biometric company FaceTec offers Zoom 3D Face Login technology. Users first take a photo of their driver's license, passport, or ID card and then use a mobile camera or webcam to record their faces. When authenticating, Jumio Authentication compares the "Selfie" ̵
But wait you say – did not the researchers prove that facial authentication is relatively easy to work around? Jumio apparently thought of that. Quality assurance company iBeta subjected Zoom 3D Face to 1,500 spoofing sessions, claiming they could not even fool it.
Jumio's pitching Jumio Authentication as a fast and convenient security solution for car hire companies, hotels and online testing providers and others.
"The more our important interactions are on the Internet, the more important it is to build trust digitally," said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio. "Jumio is a pioneer in selfie-based authentication that allows companies to leverage biometric user data collected during registration and re-examine that data in the future. With our new selfie-based authentication, users do not have to repeat the identity verification process – they just take a quick selfie – and with the growing digital chain of trust, the level of security also grows. "
Jumio agrees It has come a long way since March 2016, when it emerged from bankruptcy when it was examined by the government after reformulating the 2013 and 2014 financials. The company is now owned by private equity firm Centana Growth Partners and says its first product – Netverify – has helped to review more than 160 million identities for nearly 400 clients, including Airbnb, Coinbase, United Airlines and Instacart , The company also claims that annual recurring revenues increased 289 percent from $ 18 million in the second quarter of 2016 to $ 70 million in the second quarter of 2018. The company employs over 2,800 people in offices in India, Austria, the US and the UK
