LONDON -- 

iProov, a leading provider of biometric authentication technology and genuine presence assurance, today announces the launch of its Palm Verifier product at Finovate Europe 2019.

For the very first time, users will be able to use palm verification on any of their personal devices, either as a standalone mode of authentication or as an additional authentication factor, with strong assurance of genuine presence.

The launch provides a new choice for consumers, employees and enterprises, enabling them to select the secure, device-independent biometric they prefer. For example, users can authenticate themselves using Palm Verifier when conducting high value transactions, attempting to access personal information like medical records, using remote ATMs or gaining physical access to unsupervised remote sites.

Users simply hover their palm above their device and Palm Verifier will authenticate them in under 5 seconds. The process is fast, flexible and hygienic and is also exceptionally easy, intuitive and inclusive to use.

For certain users and in a number of cultures, face verification is neither a preferred nor an accessible mode of authentication. For these users, Palm Verifier will deliver an anonymous, easy, yet highly secure authentication experience that can be used in all light conditions. Unlike faces, palm prints are not shared on social media or stored in government records therefore do not provide traceable clues back to the identity of the user. This means for some users; Palm Verifier’s key benefit is its anonymity.

Palm Verifier is protected by the genuine presence assurance capabilities of iProov’s patented Flashmark technology. As recently endorsed by the UK National Physical Laboratory (NPL), iProov’s Flashmark-based one-time biometrics uniquely protect against spoof and replay attacks. Replay attacks, arising from social engineering and malware, are a particular hazard to consumers.

iProov Face Verifier has already been comprehensively proven in field and laboratory tests to be strongly resistant to the full range of spoof attacks, including 3D solid artefacts. Palm Verifier has the same strong Genuine Presence Assurance, whilst awaiting scale testing of solid artefacts which pose a low hazard thanks to the anonymity of palms.

Andrew Bud, Founder and CEO of iProov, said, “Our mission is to create a safe and secure digital environment, in which users feel protected and organisations can trust in the genuine presence of their remote customer.

Palm authentication is an exciting new way to establish trust in digital interaction and support diverse user preferences. Palm Verifier is more than just a great technology innovation, it provides customers with more freedom to choose their method of authentication whilst assuring the genuine presence of their online identity.
