Palo Alto-based authentication expert Incognia and payment authentication and account monitoring solutions company Outseer have announced that Incognia is the latest member of Outseer’s growing partner program.
“Incognia shares our deep commitment to advanced security without consumer interference,” said Leah Evanski, Global Head of Business Development and Strategic Alliances at Outseer. “We are excited to include Incognia’s next generation location capabilities in Outseer Beyond, bringing new intelligence to our payments and risk platforms and new options for our customers.”
The addition of Incognia to the Outseer Beyond platform — which recently gained facial recognition capabilities — means Outseer customers will now have greater access to a frictionless mobile experience and more comprehensive protection against fraud.
Incognia’s Zero Factor Authentication solution for mobile allows for the passive authentication of mobile users. By working silently in the background, it enables a frictionless user authentication experience. Meanwhile, its privacy-by-design approach anonymizes and obscures all data to protect it and ensure that it isn’t linked to any personally identifiable information.
The importance of remote authentication has been highlighted over the last several months due in part to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, which has led to a dramatic rise in online traffic and a proportionate growth in cybercrimes, with identity fraud at the forefront.
“Our modern mobile recognition signal and Zero Factor Authentication solution are a critical factor in delivering a seamless experience that cuts friction while ensuring the highest level of privacy for mobile app users,” said John Lindner, Chief Revenue Officer at Incognia. “Through our partnership with Outseer we will continue to drive our mission of delivering a frictionless and fraud free experience for our customers. We are proud to join Outseer Beyond and look forward to easing the authentication process for Outseer’s customers who generate over 20 billion annual transactions.”
