DocuSign, PresentID, and Microsoft All Announce New Face Biometrics Capabilities
Among those launching verification products is DocuSign, the U.S. electronic signature and agreements management company. In a release, DocuSign said it has upgraded its Liveness Detection for ID Verification tool, which can now detect spoofing, “confirm signers are who they say they are, are physically present at signing and that their IDs are valid.” The software was developed with United Kingdom-based identity verification firm Onfido and compares video selfies to photo IDs. In France, deep-tech cybersecurity firm PresentID says it’s integrating face liveness and voice biometrics into its remote identity verification software. A company release says that its software works for financial institutions, marketplaces, dating apps and other platforms. A post on Microsoft’s documentation site outlines how its Azure AI Face provides face biometrics services and technologies across the verification industry. Azure AI Face performs ID-to-face matching for more efficient onboarding, verification and other identification processes. Its face detection API locates faces and analyzes landmarks and attributes, such as head position or the presence of jewelry or glasses. It also accounts for signal noise, occlusion and blur. The post specifies that “the values returned by the API for each attribute are predictions of the perceived attributes and are best used to make aggregated approximations of attribute representation rather than individual assessments.”

Navigating Cyber Complexity with an Integration Mindset
Julian Martin of Mimecast takes the helm and helps navigate through the waves of cyber complexity by applying an integration mindset. The complexity afflicting cybersecurity teams far and wide is well-documented. From widespread staffing shortages to bloated tool sprawl, cloud-based hybrid enterprises are navigating a sea of complications when defending against highly sophisticated threats. In response, the concept of tool consolidation has emerged as a hot-button buzzword– the silver bullet for finding a simplified solution to the complexity problem. But beneath the surface and beyond the untrained eye, the situation isn’t really that simple.
The MOVEit Effect: Protecting Public-Facing Applications
Kiran Chinnagangannagari of Securin looks at the impact of the MOVEit exploit for answers in protecting public-facing applications. Organizations globally use public-facing applications every day to keep their businesses running. Servers, virtual private networks (VPNs), and application programming interfaces (APIs) are all common forms of third-party, public-facing applications that make accessing a service or completing work more efficient — but less secure. Many of these web-based applications can be used as a point of entry by bad actors to exploit vulnerabilities, gain access to proprietary information, and hold systems for ransom. Organizations involving strict compliance laws – like healthcare or finance – can be at elevated risk of damages from a data breach.
