Device authentication firm InAuth is launching InMobile Biometrics as an addition to its device services.
InAuth has said that InMobile Biometrics combines fingerprint technology with InAuth’s InMobile solution.
InMobile Biometrics uses a device’s native biometric reader to authenticate that the intended user is accessing the device.
Using the touch sensor built into today’s most popular Android and iOS mobile devices, InAuth clients are able to properly authenticate users.
“This makes perfect sense for InAuth, as we are on the end point, the consumer’s device, to begin with. We secure all the interactions of the device, we provide a secure token, and our technology makes sure the device itself is secure, and then passes the native biometric results securely. We also never transmit the biometric itself, which ensures the consumer’s biometric is not at risk of interception or compromise,” said Michael Lynch, Chief Strategy Officer, InAuth. “Now clients have a really locked-down device plus verification of the authorized user’s access, which provides multifactor authentication. In addition, this is a technology that is easy to implement and provides a seamless, positive customer experience.”
