28 August 2020 14:38 GMT

ID R&D, a biometric solutions provider offering AI-based voice, face and behavioral user authentication and anti-spoofing capabilities, today announced that it has been selected as the winner of the “Best Overall Biometrics Solution” award in the 2020 AI Breakthrough Awards program conducted by AI Breakthrough, a leading market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global Artificial Intelligence (AI) market today.

ID R&D helps companies combat sophisticated facial recognition spoofing attacks with a truly passive facial liveness detection technology that works across channels and devices. The ID R&D standalone liveness detection product can be combined with any facial recognition system to deliver stronger authentication and fight fraud. The technology is based on extensive research and development, and convolutional neural network (CNN) deep learning algorithms.

“Liveness detection is critical to the integrity of remote or unmonitored biometric authentication, including access to online and mobile applications, identity verification during digital onboarding, and physical access,’” said Alexey Khitrov, President and co-founder of ID R&D. “It’s equally important to achieve this without introducing friction into a process built on the promise of making security both stronger and easier, and ID R&D has done just that. We are proud to receive a 2020 AI Breakthrough Award in recognition of our success and innovation in this area.”

The mission of the AI Breakthrough Awards is to honor excellence and recognize the innovation, hard work and success in a range of AI and machine learning related categories, including AI platforms, Deep Learning, Smart Robotics, Business Intelligence, Natural Language Processing, industry specific AI applications and many more. This year’s program attracted more than 2,750 nominations from over 15 different countries throughout the world. 

While it’s getting more difficult for businesses to protect themselves and their customers against data breaches and fraud with traditional authentication methods so vulnerable to hacking, ID R&D uses the power of AI and the science of biometrics to transform the user experience.” said James Johnson, managing director, AI Breakthrough. “We congratulate the entire team at ID R&D and want to recognize their incredible innovation and achievement with our ‘Best Overall Biometrics Solution’ award in the 2020 AI Breakthrough Awards program."

ID R&D eliminates the need for users to respond to challenge-response commands during liveness checks such as blinking, head turning, moving the mobile phone, reading a series of displayed numbers, etc. This not only improves the user experience and reduces abandonment rates, but is also transparent to fraudsters. ID R&D delivers high accuracy and low effort. The solution is ISO/IEC 30107-3 compliant, having passed iBeta Level 1 testing with a perfect score.
