AGNITiO: Advantages of Voice iD for Mobile Device Authentication Explored in Goode Intelligence Report

The Simplicity, Security and Convenience of Voice Make It the Ideal Biometric for Smart Phones, Wearable Devices and More

PALO ALTO, CA--(Marketwired - September 08, 2014) - In a whitepaper entitled "Mobile Voice Biometrics -- Meeting the Needs for Convenient User Authentication," independent research and consultancy Goode Intelligence presents the advantages of voice biometrics, like AGNITiO Voice iD, as a reliable replacement or a strong second factor for traditional passwords and pins to secure mobile devices. Citing the ease of use for consumers and flexibility for OEM manufacturers and system integrators, the paper explains how voice biometric technologies are a natural fit for secure smart device authentication.

"Biometrics on mobile devices has moved from a curiosity to a must have for high end smartphones," said Alan Goode, Managing Director of Goode Intelligence. "Voice biometric authentication like AGNITiO Voice iD is not only a natural addition to smart devices, it offers more security and convenience than existing speech and voice recognition technologies for a wide range of devices including mobile phones, tablets, wearable devices, PCs, gaming systems (handheld and console), smart TVs, fixed line telephones and even automobiles."

Free to download and available now, the report explores the new breed of standards-based authentication solutions that are being brought to market for the identification of people across a wide range of electronic devices for business and personal digital services. 

Backed by the latest quantitative and qualitative research from Goode Intelligence, the report explains the inter-connected drivers that have created an environment where voice biometrics can be easily integrated into smart mobile devices and serve alongside other technologies in a multi-factor scenario.

"The mobile device market is ready for Voice iD as another convenient modality of authentication," said Mike Goldgof, Vice President of Marketing for AGNITiO. "Voice is the preferred authentication method according to global surveys, and has already been proven as a secure form of authentication by millions of users in multi-factor applications including call center and proof of life scenarios." 

The topic of mobile device biometrics will be further explored by Alan Goode and other industry experts at the RSA Global Summit in Washington, DC, Wednesday, September 10th during the "The Future of Mobile and Wearable Biometrics Authentication" panel discussion.
