Pagemill, Duff & Phelps report

BIOMETRY is a biometric authentication company focused on mobile devices. The company has developed an integrated suite of software (One Software) that can support various combinations of face and voice/speech authentication. For example, in one security mode, the user has to say four randomized words. The Biometry software then not only verifies it is the user's voice, but also that it is the user's face and that the correct words were said. This provides multiple layers of security (the voice, the face, and the words all have to match) which can be adjusted based on trust/risk level. For example, for a small value online purchase one biometric authentication can be used, but for higher value purchases multiple biometrics can be required. It also eliminates the need for a user to remember passwords. The company is based in Switzerland with offices in Silicon Valley and Estonia.
