LONDON--(Marketwire - March 23, 2011) - ValidSoft Limited ( CEO Patrick Carroll will be a member of a panel of experts on March 23 at the Voice Biometrics Conference Amsterdam 2011 on the topic of "Focus on Mobile."

Carroll said, "I am delighted to be invited to serve on the 'Focus on Mobile' panel by Opus Research, the presenter of this conference. It is strong recognition of ValidSoft as a market leader and that we are unique in our comprehensive anti-fraud solutions, which include voice biometrics."

Carroll added, "As advanced, comprehensive fraud solutions continue to be developed, integrating voice biometrics into broader anti-fraud systems has become more efficient, affordable and reliable. Voice can now easily be used to augment the process of remotely authenticating customers."

ValidSoft has launched its VALid-SVP™ (Speaker Verification Platform), a voice biometric technology to improve secure authentication. "VALid-SVP™ is our exclusive, bundled, biometric voice verification technology, which competes very favourably with other leading voice biometrics products," Carroll said. "VALid-SVP™ supports text-dependent and text-independent voice verification models, all delivered in a seamless manner over multiple telecommunications channels."

"The panel discussion at Voice Biometrics Amsterdam will focus on the fact that mobile devices are much more than phones. They are now the primary instruments for electronic commerce," Carroll said.

They are function rich, repositories and sources of high value services such as location information, message streams, payment instructions, and e-wallets, all of which should be subjected to the highest security measures."

The technology is the world's first commercially available Four-factor authentication solution utilizing a single integrated platform.
