Why did Deutsche Telekom choose Veridas’ 3-second voice authentication?
Veridas became a provider for Deutsche Telekom in 2019. The German company was looking for a solution that met their security, user experience, privacy, cost requirements for contact center authenticationto be inte in their existing B2B-platform, Conversational AI Suite.
After detailed vendor evaluation, they chose Veridas as their partner and develop common projects together.

The trade-off between security and user experience
Despite living in the digital age, the way people have to identify themselves to service-providing companies is still archaic.
Spelling your name, listing the digits of your identity document one by one, or remembering which of your hundreds of passwords is the valid one, happens every time you want to make a query to a company. This is exhausting and costly process for both companies and users that arises from the need to verify the identity of clients.
Traditionally, adding layers of security to a process has translated into more friction for the user, less conversion, and therefore profit loss for companies.
Existing methods for contact center authentication based on knowledge or tokens are neither user-friendly nor secure, as they are easily forgotten or hacked.
What if there was a unique and secure omnichannel method for use authentication?
Deutsche Telekom & Veridas partner up for voice biometric authentication
Thanks to Veridas’ voice biometrics, increasing security while enhancing the user experience is possible.
After a demanding and thorough selection process, Deutsche Telekom, after evaluating some of the best companies in the industry, chose Veridas as its partner for voice-based user authentication.
This coalition has allowed Veridas to reach bigger with the guidance of a experienced brand like Deutsche Telekom, where as the German company has gained can provide to their business customers the best performing solutions in the market.

During a recent webinar between the Veridas and Deutsche Telekom, Bernhard Hochstätter, Executive Product Manager at Deutsche Telekom, highlighted the main reasons that led them to choose Veridas for this partnership:

We are one of the most trusted brands in Germany and even beyond, and therefore it is absolutely key to be very very strict with regard to data privacy; and Veridas was a perfect fit in this respect”.
