“With 316 million Americans being asked to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and nearly half of the U.S. population still working from home, video conferencing has suddenly become a critical tool for businesses,” says Sebastian Stranieri, Founder & CEO of VU Security
NEW YORK (PRWEB) December 02, 2020
Today, VU Security™, an international technology and intelligent digital experiences provider, is launching its new solution for businesses powered by cutting-edge face and voice recognition during teleconference meetings. As more organizations begin to use video collaboration tools, maintaining trust between users and platforms becomes even more important. VU™ Video Call Identity is an API platform that simplifies how developers and businesses integrate human identity into their software to constantly protect their business and create frictionless customer experiences. The launch is geared specifically to US-based businesses for VU Security, which currently operates in 25+ countries throughout Latin America and Europe, and boasts a client roster which includes Banco Santander, HSBC, ISBC, Banco de la República de Uruguay, Prisma, Falabella, 7-Eleven, and Globant.
From government agencies and financial institutes to online distance learning and telemedicine, millions of families and corporate America are turning to video calling software amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. Although these virtual meeting platforms have become popular, many businesses have been driven into a hurried “tech on the fly” mode resulting in security vulnerabilities. VU Video Call Identity eliminates the fears of cyber-attacks and validates the security of users in the conference room, classroom, and beyond.
“With 316 million Americans being asked to stay at home during the COVID-19 pandemic and nearly half of the U.S. population still working from home, video conferencing has suddenly become a critical tool for businesses,” says Sebastian Stranieri, Founder & CEO of VU Security.
“Biometric technology streamlines a user’s identification process and enables businesses to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of their operations,” says Stranieri. “Facial recognition is no longer only an application for high-risk locations, such as airports and government buildings. In the context of COVID-19, our solution serves as a proactive way of helping businesses, across industries, to protect their assets.”
"The pandemic caused an everlasting cultural shift of working remotely and connecting as a virtual society," said Gaston Gene, Chief Operating Officer & Director of Corporate Strategy. "We saw an excessive usage of technology and cybersecurity taking place through these unprecedented times that created a permanent impact on our society. Our goal is to be a prominent leader in the US and create a seamless and digitally secure experience for our users by quickly identifying fraud and cyber criminality, and our safe, user friendly solutions offer peace of mind as we continue to adapt in this virtual world."
VU™ Video Call Identity
The new solution developed by VU Security for US businesses allows users to authenticate the participants of a meeting from beginning to end, not just when they sign-in, courtesy of facial recognition and “proof of life” gestures required to the user. Furthermore, through machine learning techniques, the system can detect if the person is trying to commit fraud.
Video Call Identity validates the identity of the meeting participants within a secure environment, integrating the validation against preexisting databases belonging to the company or from governmental sources.
Registration using facial recognition
Identity validation throughout the session
Identification of biometrical fraud (masks, video, etc.) through machine learning
Voting and polling that requires “proof of life” validation, including vote traceability
