LAS VEGAS--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, FaceTec sets a new standard in mobile biometrics with the release of ZoOm®, the first universal 3D facial authentication software solution. Capable of verifying identity, three-dimensionality and liveness using only a front-facing selfie camera, ZoOm puts an end to passwords when added into any mobile app on any iOS or Android device. ZoOm allows mobile app publishers to dramatically improve security, while users enjoy the convenience of password-free authentication.
ZoOm goes beyond identification to truly verify that the correct user is indeed present in person. ZoOm leverages proprietary patent-pending TrueLiveness™ technology and is the industry’s only biometric that measures the change in perspective distortion from up to 30 selfie video frames, proving three-dimensionality. ZoOm works in all lighting conditions, features an intuitive interface and takes less than two seconds to authenticate the correct user. App developers no longer need to choose between security and convenience, and users are no longer required to endure tedious passwords.
“Fingerprint sensors and iris scanners haven’t replaced passwords because they lack the ability to detect human liveness, leaving them susceptible to spoofs,” said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. “ZoOm detects liveness, is virtually spoof-proof, and can turn the billions of iOS and Android smart devices in use today into biometric authenticators.”
ZoOm is available in over 30 languages, supports all devices running iOS 8.3+ and Android 4.3+, is FIDO® and iBeta certified, and achieves an excellent False Acceptance Rate (FAR) of over 1/50,000. The app publisher’s cloud password storage liability is eliminated because the user's biometric data is 100-percent processed, encrypted and securely saved on their own device during authentication.
The lightweight ZoOm Software Development Kit (SDK) is available now to all mobile app developers with plugins for Xamarin, Appcelerator/Titanium, Phonegap, Cordova, Ionic and React Native. The SDK is available free to startups, developers and small businesses with less than $10 million (USD) in annual revenue, as well as for non-profit and educational organizations. For larger organizations, enterprise and government ZoOm is billed on a per-user, per-month basis.
The fully functional ZoOm UX demo app is available for evaluation on the Apple App Store or Google Play Store under “ZoOm Login”. To learn more, please visit www.ZoOmLogin.com.
