Staying ahead of bad actors requires more than just theoretical defenses; we must put our security methods to the test in the real world.
SUMMERLIN, Nev. (PRWEB) May 19, 2021
Biometric cybersecurity technology provider, FaceTec, announced today that its 3D Face Authentication Software Platform experienced massive year-over-year increases in all aspects of its usage and commercial operations.
Having already achieved profitability in Q1 of 2020, FaceTec saw a 321% YoY increase in Q1 revenue for 2021 while growing margins, and saw over 1.2 million Liveness sessions conducted per day in April. With more than 65 channel partners globally, and over 15 million new user accounts onboarded every month, FaceTec has now served more than 175 million unique users over the company's seven-year history.
"Staying ahead of bad actors requires more than just theoretical defenses; we must put our security methods to the test in the real world," said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. "We take direct responsibility for how our AI performs in our customers’ production applications, and have since we first deployed our 3D Face Verification Platform. Our hyper-focus on solving the problems in remote digital identity has not only produced the most secure and easy-to-use face verification available, but 18 months ago we pioneered what is still the only public biometric Spoof Bounty Program in the world. With more than 52,000 rebuffed attacks, the program has provided us with invaluable information, making our solution's security second to none."
A large and growing number of global users rely on FaceTec for secure access to their high-value accounts and privileges in banking and finance, border control, online dating, cryptocurrency, e-voting, e-commerce, national IDs, mobile driver licenses, and social networks.
"We are, of course, thrilled to experience this level of growth in our business, but we are also witnessing increased reliance on our software in mission-critical applications. Governments, large financial institutions, multinational corporations with very large user bases - and a lot at stake - are embracing our advanced 3D FaceScan AI," said Jay Meier, FaceTec's SVP of North American Operations. "We'll be making numerous customer announcements over the coming months that will literally change the way remote Identity Verification is done for entire populations. FaceTec has solved the user-authentication problems that have plagued the biometrics industry for decades. As a subject matter expert who has been analyzing biometrics vendors for over 25 years, it's exciting to watch the Digital Identity landscape change right before our eyes as FaceTec powers security for more and more of the mobile ecosystems that we all rely on."
The recent FaceTec v9.1 release is one of the most important and beneficial to date. Overall, Liveness algorithm performance has a measured 800% increase over v9.0, and the UX is faster and more intuitive than ever.
"Our proprietary 3D AI provides the highest levels (1-5) of liveness detection available and can accurately match a single individual more than 600% more accurately than any 2D system," added Tussy. "FaceTec's accuracy and usability have increased substantially in the past 12 months, and the usage and successful deployments around the world prove it. We also now provide a comprehensive customer dashboard, and free 2D passive liveness checks, 1:N de-duplication, photo ID face matching and anti-spoofing, anonymous age checks, and enhanced session analysis."
FaceTec achieved elite status in the first-ever report covering Liveness and Identity Proofing Vendors from Acuity Market Intelligence (https://bit.ly/3v1oRXo).
