Improved Voice Biometrics Authentication Method

Leveraging on a person’s unique Voice for Authentication

Phishing attacks are responsible for most of today’s cyber attacks. According to Ponemon Institute’s latest report, the average loss by companies to phishing in 2021 was $14.8 million. Keeping this in mind, companies are more than ever implementing security measures (MFA logins being one of them) to help in preventing such attacks.

Multi-Factor-Authentication requires a strong authentication method. OpenOTP Security Suite has been offering, as an option, Voice Biometrics as a strong authentication method. It is user friendly and respects the MFA login requirements. And recently, the technology has been upgraded for an even better end-user experience. 

Offering diverse authentication methods is one thing, offering the best authentication methods is another. At RCDevs Security, we offer both!

What is Voice Biometrics Authentication?

Voice Biometrics authentication consists of using a person’s voice as a unique identifying biological characteristic in order to authenticate them.

Voice Biometrics is considered the strongest authentication method because it ties identity to an actual individual (‘what you are’ rather than ‘what you know’ or ‘what you have’).

It extracts a set of audio features which ensure that a speaker is a real person rather than a recording or a synthetic voice of an individual.

How does it work?

Voice Biometrics uses voice patterns to generate unique identification for every individual, working with more than 100 physical and behavioral characteristics. It includes speed of speech, accent, pronunciation, emphasis, in addition to physical factors of your vocal tract, mouth and nasal passages.

Voice Biometrics Authentication Advantages 

Voice Biometrics is used as part of a two-factor authentication process to increase security and the 3 major advantages are:

  1. Enhance the customer experience with fast and frictionless authentication
  2. Improve security and minimize breaches due to compromised passwords, phishing, etc…
  3. Instantly identify users and personalize the interaction

Voice Biometrics Authentication and RCDevs Security Solutions

RCDevs’ Voice Biometrics authentication provides a unique combination of very high security and a natural user experience that works across all channels for 2FA.

It relies on machine learning technologies that are able to analyze the human voice fingerprints at a cryptographic level.

You can authenticate with your voice by computer if it has a microphone and with your phone (OpenOTP Token App required).

The documentation provides complete details of the process.
