iProov was selected for the second year running to present its novel technology at Finovate Europe 2018, and walked away with the Best of Show award. The meticulously choreographed 7 min live demo was delivered by iProov CEO Andrew Bud with support from Matthew Pearch, iProov’s Commercial Director.
iProov demonstrated the world’s first app-less network-based onboarding and authentication solution based on face verification and NFC-based contactless reading of documents. Exploiting recent advances in web and mobile OS technologies it enables financial institutions to deliver the full capabilities iProov via mobile web only to users without any prior app installation.
Also demoed was a new capability to use iProov on a personal device to authenticate any external event, including access attempts form a computer lacking a webcam or video permissions, authentication to an ATM without special hardware, or physical access without local hardware. This method, know as iProov Push and the subject of a recently granted UK patent, had not been demonstrated in public before.
