SANTA CLARA, Calif., April 6, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the Biometric Authentication Solutions market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes IDEMIA with the 2017 Global Company of the Year Award for its array of innovative biometric solutions complemented by superior customer-centric support.

"IDEMIA is the first-to-market with biometric solutions that address identification needs across such a wide array of markets and applications, setting the pace of innovation in the industry," said Jean-Noel Georges, Global Program Director at Frost & Sullivan.

IDEMIA offers a variety of biometric authentication solutions, using customer-focused technology that meets all relevant standards and regulations. The company's intelligent designs and powerful algorithms prevent acceptance of fake fingerprints, two-dimensional (2-D) images, and other modality-spoofing techniques that imposters exploit to deceive second-rate technologies. In addition, IDEMIA's technologies work in a variety of lighting conditions, without the need to adjust the configuration.

Leveraging decades of experience IDEMIA is harnessing different biometric techniques to deliver frictionless access control solutions:

  • Fingerprint recognition with IDEMIA's patented touchless sensor technology which simultaneously evaluates four fingers multiple times during one pass through a reader in any direction, while using light sensors to detect the three-dimensional (3-D) space and obtain considerably more surface coverage and data than 2-D contact-based capture
  • Facial recognition with face readers using real-time face acquisition and matching, which are capable to analyze over 40,000 facial structure markers to provide end-users with an accurate and seamless method of identity verification
  • Iris recognition with iris-at-a-distance technology that provides non-intrusive acquisition and effortless capture, processing more people thanks to wide height detection range (1 to 2 meters)

In addition, for companies that require biometric solutions for mobile devices, IDEMIA developed advanced iris recognition techniques, as well as highly secure facial recognition solutions via selfies, which ensure the user is a real, live person.

IDEMIA's solutions seamlessly integrate with other technologies, allowing customers to operate two-factor verification processes, either one biometric modality coupled with a proximity/smartcard or PIN, or two biometric processes, such as fingerprint with a face or iris scan. These solutions are applicable across an array of applications, from government security to membership-run organizations to financial institutions, telecom operators or Internet of Things players. IDEMIA provides customer support in choosing the right system, completing training, and conducting trial periods. IDEMIA and clients collaborate in customizing the product for a specific ecosystem, ensuring that the solutions work seamlessly from the first day of implementation.

"IDEMIA offers future-facing technology, customer-centric support, and industry-driving innovations, all of which set the company apart from other solution providers in the market," said Georges. "For this reason, Frost & Sullivan is proud to recognize IDEMIA as the 2017 Global Company of the Year in the biometric authentication market."
