CAPE CORAL, Fla. (WWJ) — Sensible Vision, the developer of software that replaces passwords with face recognition for computers and mobile devices, announced version 5.0 of its Fast Access Anywhere software.
Sensible Vision introduced its face recognition technology in 2006, and grew to seven million global users by delivering secure access with greater convenience than traditional passwords, PINs, or fingerprint readers.
The company was founded in the West Michigan community of Covert, and is now based in Cape Coral, Fla. with its development team in Ann Arbor.
The company says algorithm improvements in version 5.0 have resulted in better recognition under varied and difficult lighting conditions. This means even greater flexibility, convenience and security.
The new technology has been tested in stringent, real-life situations as well as with several standardized face databases. Results show significantly faster recognition and virtually no false recognitions, freeing users from the need to remember and type passwords to login to Windows and websites.
“Our company’s goal is to make phones, tablets and PCs easy to use while providing true security and peace of mind,” said George Brostoff, CEO of Sensible Vision. “This new release further enhances the user experience by reducing password typing by up to 400 percent. Logging into Windows and websites is almost instantaneous with no passwords to type or remember, even in some of the most challenging lighting conditions.”
Real-life use shows significantly improved recognition without requiring as many images be cached in the biometric database. With Version 5.0, users have to enter their password less frequently, and will enjoy the benefit of automatic logins via FastAccess on the first few uses.
In addition to improved recognition, version 5.0 also touts enhanced photo rejection. Micro-motion detection senses whether access has been attempted with a photo or video, resulting in a 60 percent improvement in photo and video rejections.
The price of FastAccess Anywhere is $24.99 for a one-year subscription and free apps for Android and Apple mobile devices. There’s a $14.99 limited time offer for users of FastAccess v4.
