      Biometrics

      Traditional methods of identity proofing using personally identifiable information (PII) is no longer adequate due to the numerous data breaches of such sensitive information.

      Verifying previous addresses, phone numbers and mother’s maiden names is outdated and insufficient. Layering biometrics on top of specific types of PII verification and government issued IDs can dramatically improve user identity assurance. Contactable utilises numerous biometrics to deliver this assurance:

      Palm Vein Biometrics 01

      Palm vein biometrics is widely believed to be the best No Touch biometric authentication method.

      F i n d o u t m o r e

      Facial Recognition 02

      A facial recognition system uses biometrics to map facial features from a photograph or video.

      F i n d o u t m o r e

      Liveness 03

      Liveness technology prevents intruders from breaching biometric authentication systems identifying presentation attacks or fraud.

      F i n d o u t m o r e

      Voice Biometrics 04

      Voice biometrics uses a person’s natural voice pattern as a password for authenticating access to services.
