News : Xura and SpeechPro Pilot Biometric Authentication
Wakefield, Mass., 22nd March 2016 -- Xura, Inc. (NASDAQ: MESG), a provider of secure digital communications services, announced it is working alongside SpeechPro to pilot their biometric technology and offer enterprise customers, particularly those in the Financial Services Sector, the ability to provide secure facial recognition and voice authentication within a mobile app, alongside, and in combination with, traditional passwords. "Entering complex passwords or one-time passcodes into a mobile device to access an app can often be a frustrating experience," says Armin Barbalata, SVP, Secure Communications at Xura.
"Using biometrics instead of traditional passwords or codes can remove this roadblock and improve the ease of use. In addition, the combination of face and voice biometric analysis increases the accuracy of authentication, and provides additional security when connecting to apps that contain confidential data."
