BioID Web Services provides simple, powerful biometrics as a service

New cloud service enables rich set of functionality for web and mobile developers
Developers of web, cloud and mobile applications can securely access BioID Web Services using SOAP and RESTful APIs. (PresseBox) (Nürnberg, ) BioID GmbH, a provider of biometric recognition and identity management for online and mobile applications, announced today the release of BioID Web Services (BWS) – a cloud-based biometric web service allowing developers of web, cloud and mobile applications to integrate advanced biometric functionality into their applications with simple APIs.
Using BWS, developers can easily add a variety of functionality, from demanding security applications such as face and/or voice authentication with liveness detection, online fraud prevention, ticketless check-in and highly precise image quality checks, to fun applications like celebrity matching, model agency image searching and photo tagging. As a cloud computing service it dynamically scales up to any performance and storage requirements. Implementation requires no developer or client software installation and no specialized expertise in biometrics or image processing. The service is available with a pay-per-use licensing model, with a limited free transaction volume available to qualified developers for development and test purposes.
“When we announced the development of the first biometrics as a service platform at CeBIT last year, the feedback was overwhelmingly positive,” said Ho Chang, CEO of BioID. “BioID Web Services is a powerful tool for web and mobile developers, giving them an easy, fast way to build highly accurate professional-grade biometrics into their applications.”
