Fingerprints Unveils Next-Gen Touchless Authentication Platform

Security

Fingerprint Cards (Fingerprints™) today launched its Touchless 2.0 platform, combining the convenience of face recognition with the security of iris, to meet demand from smartphone and emerging IoT OEMs. 

The new platform – which can be leveraged independently or as part of a multimodal biometric authentication solution together with fingerprint touch sensors – enables an improved user experience that works indoors or outside, in daylight or in rain. Fingerprints’ touchless solution is beneficial for multiple use cases including mobile devices, payments, automotive and access.

By combining iris and face recognition, Fingerprints’ Touchless 2.0 solution grants end users the dual benefits of proven security and greater convenience. The new software platform has three times better FRR* than the previous generation and works from a comfortable distance of up to 50cm without the need for visual feedback (i.e. no guide that face and eyes need to be placed within).

“As a company at the forefront of biometric innovation, we are constantly looking to develop and improve our products,” says Pontus Jägemalm, CTO at Fingerprints. “Iris recognition is a proven way to securely authenticate a user and by combining it with face recognition, our improved touchless portfolio now seamlessly balances trust with convenience, regardless of the form factor it’s deployed in.”
