Sensory, Fujitsu Partner to Bring Face Biometrics to Banking, Enterprise, Retail

Sensory's TrulySecure face recognition technology offers safe and convenient user authentication without ever sending critical biometric data to the cloud.

SANTA CLARA, Calif., – November 20, 2017 – Sensory Inc., a Silicon Valley company enhancing user experience and security for consumer electronics, today announces that it has partnered with Fujitsu Limited to assist more banks, financial institutions, enterprises and others in adopting face biometrics within their mobile apps. Sensory’s TrulySecure™ face biometric authentication is FIDO Certified and provides users an extremely secure mobile banking experience without compromising convenience.

“We pride ourselves on working with industry leaders like Sensory to offer our customers access to the best biometrics authentication technologies available. Working with Sensory has allowed us to help our customers around the world improve the user experience provided by their apps by integrating face biometric authentication technologies into them,” said Michihiko Ejiri, Vice President of Front Digital Service Business Div. at Fujitsu Limited.

As digital commerce and banking apps around the world have moved toward mobile payment and wallet applications, demand has significantly grown for fraud and theft prevention technology that is frictionless to the end user. Face recognition has quickly become the preferred biometric for user authentication on smartphones and mobile apps due to low implementation costs, excellent security and unrivaled user convenience.

The first customer to be announced as a result of the Fujitsu and Sensory partnership is Mizuho Bank, which will be integrating Sensory’s TrulySecure facial recognition into their mobile banking app.

TrulySecure offers several unique advantages, including:

  • The option to fuse voice and face biometrics recognition together for maximum security
  • It’s a cross platform solution that works with Android, iOS, Linux and other platforms
  • State of the art convolutional neural net technology running completely on device, does not store biometric info in the cloud
  • Deep learning anti spoofing approach prevents unauthorized users from gaining access with photos or videos of enrolled user

“Supported by the rapid growth in adoption that our TrulySecure face recognition technology is seeing among banking apps, mobile phones, and more, our research has found that consumers prefer the user authentication experience offered by face biometrics,” said Todd Mozer, CEO of Sensory. “We are pleased to be working with Fujitsu Limited to integrate our next-generation biometric authentication technologies into their customers’ mobile apps. We are confident that their customers will greatly appreciate the fast, accurate, and convenient authentication it provides.”
