iProov Integration Brings Liveness Detection to Ping Identity’s DaVinci Platform

iProov Integration Brings Liveness Detection to Ping Identity’s DaVinci Platform
  • iProov and Ping Identity announced a partnership that will bring liveness detection to Ping Identity’s DaVinci digital identity verification platform.
  • Liveness detection is a key component of facial biometric authentication to ensure that the person seeking access is both the right person and a real person.
  • Both iProov and Ping Identity are Finovate alums. iProov has won Finovate Best of Show awards on three separate occasions.

A new integration between fellow Finovate alums iProov and Ping Identity will enable users of Ping Identity’s DaVinci platform to deploy facial biometrics and liveness detection as part of their digital identity verification processes.

Per the partnership, iProov will deliver a DaVinci connector that integrates with its iProov Biometric Solution Suite. This will enable businesses and organizations to deploy technologies like liveness detection as part of their identity access and customer identity access management processes. Liveness detection is a key feature of facial biometric verification and authentication. It ensures that the individual seeking access is both the right person and a real person – not the product of spoofing techniques used by fraudsters and cybercriminals, techniques that range from simple photographs to deepfakes created by Generative AI.

iProov’s biometric verification solutions have been deployed by organizations from the U.S. Department of Homeland Security to UBS Group AG.

“Many organizations across the globe are already using iProov facial biometric technology to verify the online identity of citizens, workforces, and customers more securely and effortlessly than ever before,” iProov Chief Product and Innovation Officer Joe Palmer said. “Partnering with Ping Identity will help us to expand our reach even further and we’re delighted to be bringing this integration to PingOne DaVinci.”

A Finovate alum since 2017, iProov has earned Finovate Best of Show awards on three separate occasions. The company most recently demoed its technology at FinovateEurope in 2021. At the conference, iProov showed how its Flexible Authentication solution combined two of the company’s innovations – Genuine Presence Assurance and Liveness Assurance – to ensure that organizations apply the appropriate level of verification for a given situation.

Founded in 2003 and headquartered in Denver, Colorado, Ping Identity made its Finovate debut in 2012. The company’s PingOne DaVinci solution is a vendor-agnostic, no-code, identity orchestration service. DaVinci streamlines the process of integrating and deploying identity verification solutions from a variety of vendors. The solution currently has more than 100 out-of-the-box connectors to services ranging from identity to automation.

Earlier this week, Ping Identity launched its PingOne for Customers Passwordless solution. The new offering helps companies migrate toward a secure, seamless, password-free digital experience for their customers.

Finovate Global France: Automating Payments, Extending Loans, and Collaborating on Crypto

Finovate Global France: Automating Payments, Extending Loans, and Collaborating on Crypto

This week’s edition of Finovate Global takes a look at recent fintech developments involving companies headquartered in France.

First up is news that European Buy Now, Pay Later firm Alma has partnered with BNP Paribas and new Finovate alum Numeral to automate payments.

“As part of our goal to create the most fluid and seamless experience for both merchants and customers, paying our 11,000 and growing merchants reliably and efficiently is critical,” Alma COO and co-founder Guillaume Desloges said. “Numeral enables us to scale with confidence and focus on our core business.”

Alma Finance and Strategy Senior Manager Simon Shohet explained that the integration of Numeral into both its systems as well as BNP Paribas’ systems, audit trails, and approval rules will enable automation of the process of managing “thousands of daily payments at scale.” Shohet added, “Thanks to Numeral, we can focus on the most critical incidents and rapidly solve merchant’s issues.”

Alma plans to eventually use Numeral’s platform to become a SEPA participant via BNP Paribas. This would enable Alma to issue IBANs in its own name, a strategic advantage for the firm.

Numeral made its Finovate debut at FinovateEurope in London earlier this year. At the conference, the Paris-based company showed how financial institutions can leverage Numeral’s platform to automatically send, receive, and reconcile SEPA payments. The platform also enables financial institutions to manage payment errors via SEPA R transactions. The company is on track to process €5B in 2023.

Also this week, we learned that Revolut will begin offering customer credit products in France at the end of the month. The company announced that consumer loans will be available to Revolut’s more than two million French users starting on May 30th.

Revolut currently offers lending products in other European markets. These markets include Ireland, Lithuania, and Romania. Mortgage products are not part of the current package. But Revolut VP of Growth Antoine Le Nel said that these products are in the pipeline.

Thanks to Revolut’s embrace of open banking, prospective borrowers will be able to apply for loans without having to deal with hardcopy paperwork. Instead, applicants will get virtual “instant feedback” on their loan requests. Loans come with zero opening fees and are available from as low as €1,000 to as high as €50,000. Terms range from three months to 84 months and interest rates range from a low of 3.9% to 21.12%.

France has earned a reputation for being friendly to the cryptocurrency industry. This week’s news of a partnership between Canada’s Advanced Payment Solutions (APS), Cyprus’ Armenotech, and France’s Tempo France is another modest testament to this.

Back in at the beginning of the year, Armenotech and payments company Tempo Finance teamed up to develop an ecosystem supported by the Stellar blockchain. This week, we learn that London-based Advanced Payment Solutions has joined the pact.

APS CEO Serik Igbayev highlighted the importance of giving businesses the ability to work with traditional and digital assets. And in a statement, Igbayev praised the partnership with Armenotech for playing a key role in making this happen. “Clients increasingly demonstrate a demand for services that would enable them to operate both traditional and digital assets, combining various payment methods,” Igbayev said. “We have successfully been using state-of-the-art Armenotech solutions to meet this demand.” These solutions included tools that facilitate the conversion between fiat and digital assets, as well as products for fraud protection, security, KYC, and ALM.

Tempo France is serving as the corporate payment operator for the alliance. Founded in 2008 and headquartered in Paris, Tempo France provides a fast and secure bridge between cash and cryptocurrencies. The company offers online, offline, and digitally backed remittances to nearly 100 countries with more than 300 physical agent locations. Alla Zhedik is CEO.

iProov Snags New CIO from Santander

iProov Snags New CIO from Santander
  • Biometric cybersecurity company iProov appointed Miguel Traquina as Chief Information Officer.
  • Traquina comes to iProov from Santander U.K., where he served as Chief Information Officer for Operations and Economic Crime.
  • The appointment was made possible by the $70 million investment iProov received earlier this year, which the company set aside to “rapidly build on its leadership in the United States.”

When it comes to C-level hires, there may be plenty of fish in the sea, but only a select few make the best catch. Biometric cybersecurity company iProov announced today it snagged a good one, landing Miguel Traquina as Chief Information Officer.

“I am delighted to welcome Miguel to iProov, as we further grow our business,” said iProov CEO Andrew Bud. “The scale and scope of our technology activities are expanding rapidly. Miguel’s extensive experience with financial technology for a major bank complements and extends our team’s outstanding capabilities, enabling us to innovate and operate on more fronts globally.”

Traquina comes to iProov from Santander U.K., where he served as Chief Information Officer for Operations and Economic Crime. He has also spent time working at Accenture, where he was responsible for financial services projects in Europe and Latin America.

Launched in 2013, iProov helps governments, banks, and businesses securely verify the identity of their customers. The company’s differentiating technologies include Liveness Assurance and Genuine Presence Assurance, which help organizations protect against spoof attacks, digital injection attacks, and deepfakes by ensuring that the online customer is the right person, a real person, and is authenticating right now. Among iProov’s clients are the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, the U.K. Home Office, the U.K. National Health Service, GovTech Singapore, Rabobank, and ING.

Bringing Traquina on board is made possible by the $70 million private equity investment iProov closed in January. The company allocated the funds to “rapidly build on its leadership in the United States” as well as expand its international customer base, and grow its global partner network.

Biometric Authentication Innovator iProov Secures $70 Million in Funding

Biometric Authentication Innovator iProov Secures $70 Million in Funding

An investment of $70 million from Sumeru Equity Partners will enable online facial biometric authentication specialist iProov to expand its business in the United States, grow its worldwide partner network, and add more “top-quality staff” to its global team.

“This investment by one of America’s leading growth funds recognizes the preeminent position we have established,” iProov CEO and founder Andrew Bud said in a statement. “Our potential is enormous and we now have the resources to scale in the United States and worldwide. Our strong balance sheet will give our customers and partners confidence in our long-term ability to keep them and their customers secure.”

Updated valuation information was not immediately available. The company secured Series A funding in 2019, though the amount of the investment was not disclosed. In a statement, the company announced that it had tripled its revenues from 2020 to 2021, and processed more online verifications during a single 10-day period in 2021 than in the whole of 2020. The company added that it had completed more than one million verifications in a single day multiple times in 2021.

As part of the investment, Sumeru Managing Partner Kyle Ryland will join iProov’s Board of Directors. Ryland praised the company’s “combination of patented deep technology, exceptional customer references, and hugely capable team.”

A three-time Finovate Best of Show winner, iProov made its most recent Finovate appearance last spring at FinovateEurope 2021. At the event, iProov demonstrated Flexible Authentication which combines two of the company’s solutions – Genuine Presence Assurance and Liveness Assurance – to enable firms to choose the appropriate level of verification to be applied in a given situation.

Last month, iProov announced a partnership with high-speed passenger rail service Eurostar to test a new contactless fast-track service. The solution, SmartCheck, leverages iProov’s Genuine Presence Assurance technology to provide biometric face verification during the U.K. exit check to both streamline and better secure the travel experience. The pilot project was launched at London’s St. Pancras International station.

“This secure, convenient, and privacy-protecting technology will make life easier and safer for travelers around the world,” Bud said when the Eurostar collaboration was announced in December. “The days of rooting around in your bag for your passport or hoping that your phone battery doesn’t run out before you show your e-ticket at the gate are over. It’s effortless and convenient while also delivering the reassurance and security that travelers expect.”

iProov Brings Facial Verification to National Digital Identity Network

iProov Brings Facial Verification to National Digital Identity Network

Will digital identity be for 2020 what customer experience was for 2019?

Multiple Finovate Best of Show winner iProov announced today that it has teamed up with Singaporean digital government transformation company Toppan Ecquaria to enable four million Singaporeans to securely access government services online.

“This pioneering service enables citizens to live in a world of trust online,” iProov founder and CEO Andrew Bud said. “By iProoving themselves, the people of Singapore can have even greater confidence in their safety, privacy, and security on the Internet.”

The partnership will enable users of SingPass, the country’s national digital identity system, to use facial verification to authenticate themselves in order to access government services, including filing and completing tax returns. Part of GovTech of Singapore’s National Digital Identity (NDI) program, SingPass is used by Singaporeans to securely access more than 150 digital services and 180+ government agencies and businesses.

“This marks a tipping point for facial verification,” Budd added. “The technology has advanced so much in recent years that it can now provide the highest levels of reliable security for the authentication of a national digital identity program.” In a statement, the company noted that the implementation represented the first time that a cloud-based facial verification technology has secured a national digital identity network.

Leveraging the camera on a mobile device, computer, or kiosk, iProov’s Genuine Presence Assurance technology scans the user’s face, while the screen simultaneously illuminates with a cryptographic sequence of colors for a few seconds. This provides confirmation not only that the user is the rightful owner of the national identity number presented, but also that the user is a real person rather than a photograph or mask, and that they are present right now rather than being a deepfake or video.

Unlike facial recognition, to which facial verification is often compared, the technology used by iProov requires the knowledge and assent of the user. As such, it does not have the social stigma some attach to other biometric technologies that focus on the face. iProov’s solution is easy to use – with or without a mobile device – and supports inclusivity by being effective with older Singaporeans with limited mobility and access to technology.

Founded in 2011 and headquartered in London, U.K., iProov demonstrated its technology most recently at FinovateEurope in Berlin earlier this year. The company’s partnership news comes only weeks after launching its threat intelligence system for biometric assurance, the iProov Security Operations Centre (iSOC).

iProov Unveils New Web-Based Biometric Authentication Solution

iProov Unveils New Web-Based Biometric Authentication Solution

Three-time Finovate Best of Show winner iProov is bringing its innovations in biometric authentication to the web browser. The company announced the launch of iProov Web today, giving users of laptop, desktop, and tablet computers the same level of security enjoyed by users of iProov’s mobile app.

“iProov Web is a game changer for the digital identity industry,” company CEO Andrew Bud said. “Millions of people around the world have iProoved themselves on a mobile app, accessing online government, banking or travel services securely by proving that they are who they say they are, and that they are genuinely present during the authentication.”

The new offering is geared toward the significant number of people who prefer to use desktops or laptops, particularly for large online purchases and transactions, or when security is a top concern. In their product announcement, iProov cited data that indicated that while the web represented 37% of online traffic, it nevertheless delivered a disproportionate 56% of online revenue.

iProov’s patented Flashmark technology enables mobile apps to confirm genuine presence and provide seamless authentication, support digital onboarding, or assist in account or password recovery. The technology defends against presentation and replay attacks, as well as deepfakes, by ensuring both that there is a real person conducting the transaction and that the real person, is the right person.

London-based iProov most recently demonstrated its facial recognition-based biometric authentication solution at FinovateEurope in Berlin this February, picking up its third consecutive Best of Show award. Also that month, iProov opened a North American headquarters in Catonsville, Maryland at the Research and Technology Park at the University of Maryland Baltimore County (UMBC).

More recently, the company partnered with SK ID Solutions, bringing its technology to customers in Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. iProov was founded in 2011.

Helping Secure Digital Identities; Managing Financial Crime Risk

Helping Secure Digital Identities; Managing Financial Crime Risk

Two of the biggest themes in fintech – digital identity and the rise of fintech in Central and Eastern Europe – meet in the latest announcement from biometric authentication specialist and Finovate Best of Show winner iProov. The company’s facial recognition technology now makes it easier for users of SK ID Solutions’ Smart-ID Service in countries like Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania to renew their accounts without having to visit a physical bank branch.

“This is a major development for all digital identity providers,” iProov CEO Andrew Bud said. “Estonia has proved, for the first time, that a remote, automated, biometric ID verification service can deliver the highest possible levels of security.”

Recognized as equal to a handwritten signature throughout Europe, Smart-IDs enable users to authenticate themselves and provide permissions online using a smartphone app. iProov’s facial recognition technology adds a three-second scan to compare the image of the user to the image on their presented ID document to help defend against fraud and identity theft.

Smart-ID also leverages NFC-based ReadID document verification technology from InnoValor.

Financial crime risk management innovator Featurespace will be helping Enfuce combat fraud and money laundering courtesy of a newly announced partnership. Enfuce, a financial services firm based in Finland, will use Featurespace’s ARIC Risk Hub to enhance its ability to protect its customers from fraud and financial crime.

“Our clients deserve industry-leading services that allow them to freely and fully concentrate on the success of their core business, without worrying about ever-evolving fraud,” Enfuce co-founder and chair Monika Liikamaa said.

ARIC Risk Hub offers real-time transaction monitoring for fraud and financial crime, enabling institutions to identify and act against anomalous and potentially dangerous behavior as it occurs. The technology also reduces the number of false positives by as much as 70%, keeping anti-fraud processes efficient. Featurespace introduced its fraud-fighting technology to Finovate audiences at FinovateEurope 2016.

Intuit’s $7 Billion Bid for Credit Karma; FinovateEurope Salutes its Best of Show

How’s $7 billion for good karma? One of Finovate’s earliest alums Credit Karma is reportedly the target of what would be Intuit’s biggest acquisition to date. According to The Wall Street Journal, the cash and stock deal could be announced as early as Monday.

Credit Karma will continue to function as an independent company with founder and CEO Kenneth Lin at the helm. The acquisition gives Intuit, maker of online tax filing service TurboTax, another contact point with the online personal finance world. Credit Karma provides its members with access to their credit scores and borrowing histories, helps them monitor their accounts for security breaches and, perhaps most relevantly, has offered a free online tax preparation service since 2017.

If the deal holds up, Intuit will be paying a significant premium for Credit Karma. The personal financial wellness company was last valued at $4 billion, based on a 2018 private market transaction.

With another Finovate conference in the books, our Finovate Best of Show ranks has a new set of members. Congratulations to Dorsum, Glia, Horizn, iProov, Sonect, and W.UP for taking home top honors earlier this month at FinovateEurope!

Sonect offers merchants the ability to grow their business via increased traffic and gives financial institutions a way to extend their ATM networks without the cost of additional hardware.

The Best of Show win was also a first for Horizn. The company, which made its Finovate debut three years ago at FinovateEurope, offers a platform that helps employees and customers maximize the opportunities of digitized financial services. Horizn uses simulator microlearning, as well as gamification and advanced analytics, to promote digital adoption across channels.

And last but not least, a special tip of the hat to Dorsum, Glia, iProov, and W.UP, all of whom won Best of Show honors at FinovateEurope for a second year in a row.
