Daon and USAA Reach 1 Million Enrollments in Mobile Biometric Authentication

RESTON, VA – Daon, a global leader in mobile biometric authentication technology, announced today that one of its leading customers, USAA, has reached a key milestone of processing 1 million mobile biometric enrollments.   USAA integrated Daon’s IdentityX® Platform into their existing 2-Factor mobile app authentication, providing their members with a more convenient, safe and secure means to access USAA on their mobile devices.  When it comes to customer engagement, experience and loyalty, USAA ranks above all other U.S. financial institutions.  IdentityX expands the authentication options for USAA’s members, allowing them to choose and easily utilize their face and voice on their smartphones to authenticate.   Daon offers a range of biometric technologies with IdentityX, including FIDO compliant solutions.

“Achieving this rate of adoption by USAA clearly demonstrates Daon’s ability to operate at scale, establishing us as the leading provider of mobile authentication globally,” said Tom Grissen, Daon’s chief executive officer. “Watching the rapid adoption of biometrics by USAA and reading the complimentary Tweets of USAA members is a testament to the desire to use this form of authentication and validates the efforts put forward by both organizations.  We look forward to our continued relationship with USAA as together we explore more options to provide secure and convenient authentication methods for its members.  We are firmly committed to supporting USAA’s culture of going above and beyond and doing the right thing because it’s the right thing to do.”

“USAA is very excited with the advanced rate of biometrics adoption we have seen,” said Rick Swenson, assistant vice president of enterprise financial crimes management strategy and analytics. “Reaching the milestone of 1 million enrollments is a strong testament of our members’ preference to use a biometric when authenticating. By offering a biometric in conjunction with our very secure “Quick Logon” solution, USAA is able to provide our members both a highly secure and convenient means to access their accounts. We thank Daon for their work throughout this exciting implementation and for the IdentityX Platform that allowed us to provide more options for our members.”
