#contactcenterworld, @nuanceinc, @opusresearch

San Francisco, CA, USA, Sept, 2017 -- Nuance Communications, Inc. (NASDAQ:NUAN) announced that it has been named the leader in Biometric Authentication in the newly published Voice Biometrics Intelliview Report by  analyst firm, Opus Research. The report positions Nuance as the frontrunner across Contact Center Authentication, Contact Center Fraud Detection, and Mobile Authentication.

Brands today are focused on providing customers with a streamlined omni-channel experience while at the same time maintaining security and mitigating data breaches. Voice biometrics has emerged as a critical enabler to delivering customers ease of authentication while also detecting fraud, and its use is poised to grow in the years to come. According to Opus*, by 2020, more than half a billion individuals will be able to use spoken word, rather than PINs, passwords or answers to personal questions, to initiate conversations or transactions using their phones, laptops, tablets, smart speaker/appliances, and connected cars.
