BOSTON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--InAuth, the device authentication and intelligence experts for a mobile-first world, today is formally launching InMobile Biometrics, an enhancement adding biometric authentication to InMobile’s capabilities. Building on InAuth’s global leadership position in device recognition, InMobile Biometrics combines powerful fingerprint technology with InAuth’s InMobile solution to deliver the first device identification offering with fully integrated and secure biometric recognition.
InMobile Biometrics uses a device’s native biometric reader to authenticate that the intended user is accessing the device, offering strong two-factor (2FA) security. Using the touch sensor built into today’s most popular Android and iOS mobile devices, InAuth clients are able to properly authenticate users and establish a trusted connection. It offers a powerful additional layer of security to reduce fraud, one which is dramatically more secure than traditional PIN or passcodes, which can easily be stolen or decrypted.
“This makes perfect sense for InAuth, as we are on the end point, the consumer’s device, to begin with. We secure all the interactions of the device, we provide a secure token, and our technology makes sure the device itself is secure, and then passes the native biometric results securely. We also never transmit the biometric itself, which ensures the consumer’s biometric is not at risk of interception or compromise,” said Michael Lynch, Chief Strategy Officer, InAuth. “Now clients have a really locked-down device plus verification of the authorized user’s access, which provides multifactor authentication. In addition, this is a technology that is easy to implement and provides a seamless, positive customer experience.”
InMobile Biometrics leverages InAuth’s Trusted Path architecture, which prevents data compromise by providing a direct, completely secure channel through which to transport sensitive information—such as a biometric results data—between the customer and an organization. Every communication is encrypted end-to-end, digitally signed, and protected against replay attacks.
“InMobile Biometrics offers a unique technology combination—fingerprint biometric results, the secure passing of those results through our proprietary architecture, and best-in-class security of the device itself through our mobile solution,” said Lisa Stanton, President, InAuth. “Through InMobile Biometrics, we have created one of the most secure environments and platforms for biometrics on mobile devices in the industry.”
