Synaptics has announced its latest security software for smartphones, the Synaptics Multi-Factor Biometric Fusion Engine.
The Synaptics Multi-Factor Biometric Fusion Engine uses both fingerprint recognition and facial recognition at the same time.
The Synaptics multi-factor fusion engine combines authentication scores from multiple biometrics to determine verification. This increases overall system security as both fingerprint and facial factors have to meet minimum threshold requirements before authentication. In addition, the fusion engine improves usability as lower individual verification thresholds still result in greater security.
“Synaptics’ Natural ID fingerprint sensors are already significantly more secure and convenient than typed passwords, and by adding multi-factor biometrics users achieve a whole new level of exceptional device- and application-level authentication,” said Anthony Gioeli, vice president of marketing, Biometrics Product Division, Synaptics. “Phase one of our fusion engine is focused on fingerprint and facial, and future iterations will include additional biometric and security factors.”
