One of the new solutions, LexisNexis One Time Password, is an authentication method that provides business and government organizations the ability to have stronger authentication during high-risk, high-value customer transactions by offering an alphanumeric code that can be sent via SMS text, e-mail or phone on a device the user currently possesses.

The other new product, LexisNexis Voice Biometrics, is an advanced biometrics speaker verification system that verifies a speaker's identity based on their voice, the company said.

"In today's high-risk environment, multiple forms of user authentication are a must-have for any organization that relies on compliance and information security for effective operations," said Dennis Becker, vice president, corporate markets, LexisNexis, in a statement. "Everything hinges on the true identity of the user; and if identities are not properly authenticated, then an enterprise has no assurance that access to resources and services is being properly controlled."

The new services will be available through LexisNexis IVR on Demand, which includes identity proofing and voice biometrics solutions via a hosted Integrated Voice Response (IVR) that can be easily and quickly integrated into a company's current workflow.
