Sensory Introduces Combined Voice and Vision
Biometric Authentication for Mobile Phones, Tablets and PCs
TrulySecure™ Offers First Cost Effective and High Accuracy On-Device Biometric Authentication
Santa Clara, CA – June 30, 2014 ...Sensory today announced TrulySecure™ to alleviate the
frustrations caused by fingerprint and PIN identification. TrulySecure™ is a technology suite available to
OEM product developers in an SDK that unites Sensory’s world-class speaker verification technology with its
newly developed, proprietary, state-of-the-art face recognition engine.
Sensory's authentication solution is a sophisticated technology leveraging the company’s deep strengths
in speech processing, computer vision, and machine learning. The combination of face recognition and speaker
verification to authenticate a specific individual allows users to rest assured that their device is secure,
without the hassle of entering a password or PIN every time they want to access it. High end mobile phones
have begun using biometric fingerprint solutions for entry, but consumer acceptance has been poor because of
the need to frequently re-swipe the finger to gain access. The added cost for the fingerprint feature is
$5-$10 per phone, making it expensive to implement. Sensory’s approach uses the existing microphone and
camera so there is no added hardware cost, making it applicable for lower cost devices, while improving
on accuracy across a wide range of environmental conditions.
"Consumers generally find it cumbersome to use PINs or passwords to lock their phones, and as a result
these devices often go unlocked," said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory. "Sensory’s biometric authentication
provides a high level of security, while still being convenient and fast enough that people will use it.”
TrulySecure™, like fingerprint ID, is an on-device biometric not requiring a cloud connection.
This is a preferred approach for consumers who don’t want their biometric information stored outside
their personal devices. Embedded biometrics are also the preferred approaches for higher security
because cloud based systems are easier to hack and break into.
"Sensory is continuing to exhibit leadership in handsfree control by allowing a secure multimodal
biometric that doesn’t require touching devices to make them work," said Dan Miller, Sr. Analyst at Opus
Research. “Combining biometrics is an excellent approach to improving accuracy and performance across
TrulySecure™ demonstrations and SDKs are now available to qualified developers.
