Biometric Signature ID reveals new solution
07 March 2018 18:35 GMT

Software only ID authentication firm for web accessed accounts and devices, Biometric Signature ID (BSI), has introduced their latest authentication solution, BioProof-IDE.

The solution has been developed under a new partnership with AuthenticID, a developer of real time identity authentication and credentialing.

The firms say the partnership enables BSI to offer both live remote agents and a pure electronic solution that is a real-time, document and photo ID authenticator. The electronic version takes an extra step by matching a user’s photo ID to a selfie picture in as little as 20 seconds.

"This in turn provides the highest assurance possible that the live person is the same individual on the document. Both BioProof-ID solutions are Integrated with BSI’s BioSig-ID gesture biometrics that requires no additional hardware since its activated with your finger, mouse, or stylus."

“Our partnership with AuthenticID marks a huge step forward for BSI as we continue to offer our customers the latest and greatest in biometric authentication and document verification,” said Jeff Maynard, President / CEO, Biometric Signature ID. “By integrating these services into our next-level gesture biometric authentication technology, we’ve created an entirely new product that is poised to dominate the cloud-based authentication market.”

One of the last steps to offer our clients is a decision tool that can ensure the government photo ID presented remotely on their mobile device is not a forgery. If the picture of the front and back of the photo ID document matches, the user completes a selfie. If the selfie matches the photo-ID, the user is directed to complete the enrollment process with BioSig-ID™. This newest iteration marks an evolutionary step for BSI’s authentication service offerings and will allow the company to expand uses cases worldwide.

Prior to the implementation of BioProof-IDE, users were required to verify their government issued document via a live remote agent who would then witness the user enroll with BioSig-ID. With AuthenticID, BSI now can remotely review and legitimize more than 3,000 unique government identity documents worldwide.

“Our partnership with Biometric Signature ID delivers an added level of assurance that the person enrolling with BioSig-ID, is the correct person, and not a fraudster,” said Blair Cohen, Founder and President of AuthenticID. “By combining AuthenticID with the leading biometric technologies of Biometric Signature ID, we are able to create several new use cases for secure access and high confidence transactions.”
