27 February 2020 17:58 GMT

Acuant, a global provider of identity verification solutions, announced today new technology for advanced passive liveness test in Acuant FaceID biometric facial recognition and Acuant WebID for instant identity verification on the web, strengthening the platform’s omnichannel solutions. Advanced passive liveness and WebID bring what you expect from Acuant, speed and accuracy for superior identity proofing.

Acuant’s Trusted Identity Platform allows for simple, secure and trusted transactions across any channel (on premise and remote, any device). A new liveness test, advanced passive liveness, for facial recognition is now available within the three FaceID offerings. Groundbreaking, this is the most user friendly and secure liveness test on the market. A user simply poses for a selfie that is matched to the image on their ID, zero action is required to confirm liveness.

Advanced passive liveness is offered in FaceID’s Standard and Government classes and works across all digital channels (native and web) bringing liveness tests to the web. Meeting US National Institute of Standards & Technology (NIST) guidelines and iBeta certified, advanced passive liveness sets the gold standard in spoof proof technology by preventing presentation attacks from printed images, masks, recorded video or synthetic video.

In an effort to expand identity verification for HTML/Web workflows, soon to launch Acuant WebID provides instant identity verification across mobile and web channels. WebID allows a user to seamlessly verify their identity utilizing both Acuant AssureID document authentication & Acuant FaceID biometric facial recognition with liveness test via HTML (desktop) and their mobile device.

The authentication happens in real time (seconds) and allows business to follow the progress, getting verification results and seeing where users might abandon the process. The ability to move seamlessly from web to mobile allows for high quality image capture, leading to the best results, reducing unknown rates, catching more fraud and passing more good customers. There are no awkward or hard to follow steps involved. WebID offers easy API integration to be up and running in no time.

“We are excited to bring these innovative solutions to the market and our partners. Acuant remains focused on providing best in class identity proofing solutions that are simple and secure for all channels,” said Acuant President and CEO Yossi Zekri. “We recognize the importance of not only being able to transact on any channel, but across channels in one workflow as with WebID. We aim to prevent and reduce fraud while bridging major gaps for businesses when it comes to enabling trusted transactions that are user friendly.”
