VoiceVault, a provider of voice recognition solutions, has announced the release of ViGo, a mobile exclusive voice biometric platform. Targeted at the developer market, ViGo is designed as an of the shelf solution, ready to create and deploy voice biometrics in a mobile app.
The driving force behind ViGo – and mobile voice biometrics in general – is a need for convenient and stronger than password authentication for logical access.
Opus Research senior analyst Dan Miller explains: “Because hundreds of millions of people use their smartphones or tablets for both business and personal applications, there is very large demand for strong but simple log-on or activation. Voice-based authentication fills that bill, and VoiceVault’s ViGo puts it right on every mobile app developers design palette.”
ViGo aims to bring efficiency to the development of these mobile apps. It is an end-to-end platform, providing a structured and standardized approach to the incorporation of voice biometrics, ideally saving organization on time and money.
Off the shelf, ViGo gives developers the ability to incorporate phrase or digit based voice registration into Android or iOS apps.
Nik Stanbridge, VoiceVault’s vice president of product marketing. “Organizations want to use voice biometrics in their mobile apps to deliver secure convenience and they want to be able to integrate it in the simplest and quickest way possible, ViGo is responding to this need by providing a standardized out of the box solution that cuts time to market and organizational resource needs with a complete voice biometrics package.”
Recently, Mobile ID World president Peter O’Neill interviewed VoiceVault’s VP of marketing, Julia Webb. The conversation centers around ViGo, the key drivers in mobile voice biometrics and what it means to create a solution targeted at the developer market.
Just this week, VoiceVault responded to the growing demand for voice biometrics in mainland China by announcing Mandarin language functionality.
