Desert Schools FCU Launches Voice Biometrics
Speak and be recognized. Sounds like a parliamentary procedure but it’s also becoming a way for members of Desert Schools Federal Credit Union to be authenticated by their financial institution.
The $2.8 billion, 337,000-member credit union in Phoenix is the first user of a new voice biometrics solution from Finivation Software, a New York-based software development firm.
“It’s going to help us meet the safety and soundness part of that, adding another way we have to protect members’ identity and their data,” Laieski said. "It uses some sophisticated mathematical methods to combine with other multi-factor tools to create a more secure environment but does it through a simple user interface using technologies that are familiar to our members.”
Laieski also credited the vendor for the project's success.
