* PhoneFactor (www.phonefactor.com) now provides readerless biometric verification for its phone-based authentication platform via customers' or employees' (such as home agents') voices. Their voiceprints are verified during PhoneFactor authentication calls. Users receive calls when logging in. They answer and speak their passphrases to complete the process. PhoneFactor's voice mapping model uses multiple voiceprint algorithms to ensure that authorized users can be verified regardless of factors such as excess noise or minor voice variations. The authentication call is out-of-band, offering protection from man-in-the-middle attacks and keystroke loggers. The voiceprint solution adds a third factor verification, the others being the calls and passphrases.
