HID Approve platform supports Apple

22/01/18

HID Global has announced that its HID Approve two-factor mobile authentication and verification platform now supports Apple’s iPhone X Face ID facial recognition system.

The company says it expects facial recognition to play an increasingly important role in its authentication offering, combined with threat and fraud detection.

“With the growing demand for an optimised user experience, facial recognition is a great addition for banks and enterprises that also want a high level of security,” said Martin Ladstaetter, vice president of Product Management, IAM Solutions, HID Global.  “HID Global now delivers an easy way for organisations to take advantage of Apple’s Face ID capability with our HID Approve mobile authentication solution.”

Facial recognition is featured on Apple’s new iPhone X phone to secure access to online or mobile banking and digital signatures used in banking transactions. Apple’s Face ID feature can also be used to secure remote access to employee data and applications. HID Global says its customers now have an easy way to implement Face ID using the company’s mobile authentication platform, either as a turnkey application or directly integrated into existing corporate apps using the HID Approve software development kit (SDK).
