Voice replaces passwords and brings the protection of sensitive data to a higher level of security. This is the technological breakthrough that comes from the strategic agreement signed between Almawave, through the subsidiary PerVoice, with the Phonexia company founded in 2006 in the Czech Republic and specialized in software and voice biometric technologies. The partnership leads the Almaviva Group company – leader in Artificial Intelligence, natural language analysis and Big Data services – to integrate the functionalities of its platforms, enriching them with the voice biometry systems developed by Phonexia. The new technologies studied by the Czech company, which works in full synergy with the Brno University of Technology, will allow authentication to be performed on the phone, an app or a web service, simply expressing oneself with natural language, replacing made use of written passwords. The agreement combines functionality and security, making it possible to prevent fraud or unwanted access by hackers, and in general to protect the most sensitive data. The solutions are designed specifically for the banking and financial sector but can be applied in any service aimed at the public, for example in the Healthcare sector. “Every day, each of us has to deal with an increasing number of accounts and passwords – underlines Valeria Sandei, CEO of Almawave -” biometric technologies, a field of application in which Phonexia is among the most specialized companies in the world, they offer a win-win solution that, in addition to simplicity, first of all guarantees safety. “In Phonexia – adds Sande – we have found an ideal partner, who, like us, offers concrete solutions to companies and public administrations, and pursues innovation through research and close collaboration with the university world”. “We are really pleased to collaborate with the Almawave Group, through the subsidiary PerVoice, providing them with Phonexia Voice Verify, a state-of-the-art voice biometrics solution, which allows verification of the identity of customers by listening to their voice, thus offering an experience extremely fast and secure customer, eliminating the use of passwords “comments Michal Hrabi, CEO of Phonexia.
