With just a simple spoken passphrase such as “My voice is my password,” voice biometrics allows consumers to be securely authenticated when they connect with a service provider via a call center or IVR, a mobile app, or the Web, improving the overall service experience for the consumer, and delivering substantial time and cost savings to the enterprise. Voice biometrics securely identifies each individual through their unique voiceprint, and eliminates the hassle of remembering and typing passwords and PINs. Once authenticated, consumers can quickly be served a more personalized experience based on their unique voiceprint.

Nuance has combined it's voice biometric solutions (VocalPassword, FreeSpeech and FraudMiner) into a new platform: the Nuance Security Suite. It is the world's first and only voice biometric platform that provides authentication and fraud detection across interactive voice recognition (IVR) systems, contact centers, mobile apps and the Web.
