SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 17, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Sensory, a Silicon Valley company enhancing user experience and security for consumer electronics, today announced the availability of TrulySecure 2.0, the next generation of FIDO Certified™ multimodal biometric authentication technology. Seamlessly fusing the two biometric modalities of face and voice, TrulySecure 2.0 builds on Sensory's strengths in speech processing, computer vision, neural networks and deep learning to offer the most user-friendly, extremely secure and accurate multimodal authentication technology ideal for applications ranging from device unlock, application login and mobile payments. Additionally, Sensory today announced its new TrulySecure partner program that provides a significant discount and many benefits to app developers interested in trying, testing or deploying apps featuring TrulySecure 2.0 biometric authentication.
"For more than two decades, Sensory has been at the cutting-edge of incorporating state-of-the-art neural networks and machine learning principles in our speech recognition and biometrics technologies," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory. "TrulySecure 2.0 takes biometric verification to a whole new level and showcases Sensory's strong ability to offer biometric solutions that offers a seamless user experience and provide virtually impenetrable security against hackers and identity theft without sacrificing convenience or adding undue system costs."
TrulySecure 2.0 delivers multiple advantages over other single modality biometric technologies including:
- Cross platform and deployable on the widest variety of existing and new devices (no special sensors required);
- Easy to use interface without any need to tap a screen, swipe a finger, or carefully position an eye;
- Fast 10 second user enrollment process and less than 1 second to authenticate;
- Deep learning improves biometrics performance with use;
- Robustness to environments with poor lighting or high noise; and
- Anti-spoofing techniques such as motion analysis and skin texture analysis to help keep the bad guys out.
TrulySecure 2.0 consistently and reliably matches the correct user in more than 98% of transactions while keeping out imposters 99.999% of the time1, including in tests leveraging real-world data collected from thousands of actual users operating a variety of devices in a variety of environments.
"We recently assessed Sensory's TrulySecure 2.0 technology and accredited Sensory's testing results for enrollment and verification, and were left very impressed," said Darrell Geusz, founder of the ID Trust Network and veteran identity subject matter expert. "Sensory's implementation of multiple techniques for combining different biometric modalities delivers high accuracy and novel user flexibility. We were very pleased that Sensory's testing incorporated a large set of real world data collected from a much larger variety of devices and uncontrollable operating environments. This really sets Sensory apart from their competition, and allows us to confidently say that Sensory meets or exceeds industry requirement for biometric accuracy."
Android users can experience Sensory's advanced face and voice biometrics technologies today by downloading "AppLock by Sensory" on the Google Play store.
"Sensory reaps the benefits of its long history of innovation in device-based biometrics and speech technologies. TrulySecure 2.0 continues to leverage early deployment of neural net technology for high accuracy in mobile phones and embedded devices" said Dan Miller, Lead Analyst at Opus Research.
Consistent with the standards set by the FIDO Alliance, TrulySecure is an on-device biometrics authentication solution that does not require a cloud connection. On-device biometric solutions are preferred for personal authentication due to their high security and reliability compared to centralized or cloud based systems, which are more desirable and vulnerable to hackers and unusable in low-signal/no Internet environments. TrulySecure further safeguards each user's privacy by encoding digitized representations for matching that cannot be reverse engineered or reused.
"The dozens of recent central server hacks of personal information in the news, including one where nearly 6 million people's fingerprint records were obtained, continue to reinforce why TrulySecure 2.0 is a big differentiator for our partners. No other company is delivering sophisticated and accurate identity authentication with such a smooth user experience, on such a wide variety of platforms, and without the need for the cloud or special sensors," Mozer added.
For developers interested in integrating advanced biometric authentication into their apps, Sensory is offering a specially priced "Starter Partner Program" to kick start integration of the technology. Developers will get access to the TrulySecure 2.0 SDKs, receive support and can get up to 10,000 unit licenses. SDKs for TrulySecure 2.0 from Sensory are available immediately for Android, Mac OS, Linux and Windows.

- TrulySecure 2.0 matches users in more than 98% of transactions when the technology is set to false accept threshold of 1 in 100,000. When the false accept threshold of TrulySecure is adjusted to an extreme 1 in 1million scenario, user authentication accuracy remains incredibly high at over 95%.
- Developers will receive either the licenses or the time period whichever comes first
