iProov, a leading provider of biometric facial verification technology, today announced that it will play a key role in a multi-year contract with the UK Home Office for the provision of smartphone-based digital identity verification. This new capability will assist the UK Home Office in delivering secure, easy-to-use interactions with individuals in accordance with the digital services agenda. The app to support applications for the EU Exit Settlement Scheme includes this technology.
iProov, a leading provider of biometric facial verification technology, is this week joining a delegation led by the UK Lord Mayor of London aiming to boost fintech trade and business links between the City of London and India.
iProov’s involvement in the trade mission reflects its continued investment in the country and its desire to support the government’s drive for increased financial inclusion.
Several stories last month reported that facial recognition technology used by UK police was “staggeringly inaccurate”.
Yet in the last six months, multinational financial services firms, such as ING and Rabobank, have started using automatic face matching to replace in-person identity checking.
The question is, how reliable is this technology?
iProov is sponsoring and exhibiting at Money2020 Europe, which takes place in Amsterdam on 4th-6th June 2018. Whilst Money2020 attracts visitors from all over the world, the Netherlands is a core market for iProov, with major banks ING and Rabobank delivering live onboarding services to their customers using iProov’s ID Matcher service. Money2020 is also the launchpad for Norwegian service provider IDMee, a DNB company, whose services make use of ID Matcher.
At Money2020 iProov is demonstrating ID Matcher, integrated with ReadID handset NFC document reading from partner InnoValor, whose stand is adjacent. iProov’s app-less HTML5 version of ID Matcher is also being demonstrated, integrated with the optical document capture technologies of various partners.
Visitors are also experiencing Verifier, iProov’s zero-effort solution for Strong Customer Authentication to assure compliance with PSD2.
Senior iProov executives are present on its stand J63.
