Sensory Partners with Nok Nok Labs on Voice and Vision Authentication Alternatives to Password ID

Las Vegas Nevada – January 6, 2015…Leaders in Biometrics and Modern Authentication work to Deliver FIDO-based solutions.

Sensory Inc., an innovator in voice and vision biometrics for consumer products, is pleased to announce its partnership with Nok Nok Labs to offer voice and facial based authentication solutions to Nok Nok Labs’ customers based on the new specifications from the Fast Identity Online (FIDO) Alliance.

Sensory will work closely with Nok Nok Labs to achieve FIDO Ready status based on the recently released FIDO 1.0 Specification and integration into Nok Nok Labs’ S3 Authentication Suite.

Among Sensory’s solutions available for implementation is Sensory’s latest offering, TrulySecure™, a combined voice and vision biometric authentication solution for mobile Phones, tablets and PCs. TrulySecure is a sophisticated technology leveraging the company’s deep strengths in speech processing, computer vision, and machine learning. The combination of face recognition and speaker verification to authenticate a specific individual allows users to rest assured that their device is secure, without the hassle of entering a password or PIN every time they want to access it. TrulySecure is also an on-device biometric not requiring a cloud connection. This requirement is a preferred approach for consumers who don’t want their biometric information stored outside their personal devices. Embedded biometrics are also the preferred approaches for higher security because cloud based systems have proven to be vulnerable to hackers and break ins.

Nok Nok Labs is an innovator in modern authentication and founding member of the FIDO Alliance. The Nok NokTM S3 Suite enables the next generation of authentication for Internet-scale applications and services. While improving the user experience and unifying authentication silos, the S3 Suite reduces the cost and complexity of authentication infrastructure. With a flexible and extensible architecture, the S3 Suite provides risk-appropriate authentication capabilities for a wide range of applications.

“Nok Nok Labs is one of the leaders in the movement towards user-friendly, strong authentication solutions,” noted Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory Inc. “We look forward to working with them to power the next generation of security for their customers’ products.”

“Providing support for biometric authentication is an important component of the mission of Nok Nok Labs and the FIDO Alliance—and offers a superior approach to current weak authentication alternatives,” said Ramesh Kesanupalli, Founder of Nok Nok Labs and FIDO Visionary. “We are happy to partner with Sensory to combine their voice and vision technology with our S3 Authentication Suite. Organizations are looking for a range of different user verification methods for their consumers and Sensory offers solutions that meet those requirements.”
