MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Jan. 14, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Based on its recent analysis of the strong authentication market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes NEC with the 2014 Global Frost & Sullivan Award for Customer Value Leadership. NEC has made the most of the demand for strong and user-friendly methods for user authentication to introduce facial recognition biometrics in mainstream commercial applications. NEC's NeoFace product offering includes NEC's core facial recognition capabilities, such as image processing, face detection, quality assessment, template encoding, and matching. It is available as either a "SDK" or "Appliance" for integration in facial recognition solutions.
The proliferation of mobile devices with front-facing cameras and powerful processors, along with organizations' open standards approach, has given a boost to the adoption of NEC's facial recognition authentication solutions. NEC has leveraged its 40 years of accrued expertise and proven facial recognition core technology to develop solutions for a number of investigation, mobility, and surveillance applications.
"NEC's NeoFace suite of products offers a high degree of irrefutability and the flexibility to be applied to a number of compelling use cases, making it ideal to address the need for strong authentication, as well as identification," said Frost & Sullivan Industry Principal Frank Dickson. "Demonstrated by NeoFace Reveal's success in identification, NEC's face-matching algorithms ensure accuracy and selectivity, regardless of database size and image quality. Additionally, the use of facial recognition biometrics removes the need for one-time password (OTP) devices that are often required for strong authentication."
NeoFace has been validated by comprehensive testing conducted by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), with tests ranging from one-to-one verification to large-sc
