  • iProov’s biometric authentication technology to be used by IDV Pacific to confirm the identity of individuals online
  • The collaboration sees iProov expand its partner network in APAC and underlines the growing global importance of Dynamic Liveness for protection against online crime

iProov today announces its partnership with Australian identity verification specialists IDV Pacific Pty Ltd. The announcement sees iProov expand its growing partner network and extend its services into Australia and New Zealand.

IDV Pacific provides identity document validation to governments and enterprises in a range of industries, recognizing over 4,600 different international ID credentials, including passports, driver’s licenses, visas, and national ID cards.

The integration of iProov facial biometric technology enables IDV Pacific customers to confirm that the individual using a passport or driver’s license to verify their identity online is the same person whose photograph appears in the identity document.

An effortless facial biometric scan, completed using a mobile device or computer, uses a brief controlled illumination to provide Genuine Presence Assurance of the user. As well as matching the physical face to the photo ID, the facial biometric also confirms that an individual is a real person, rather than a photograph or mask and that they are authenticating at this moment in time. This protects against the use of deepfakes or other sophisticated video replay attacks to spoof the system.

The partnership will enable organizations to complete highly secure identity checks for a range of processes, including conveyancing, fraud protection, Know Your Customer (KYC)/anti-money laundering (AML) procedures, and compliance with labor licensing laws.

Andrew Bud, Founder and CEO of iProov said: “The partnership between iProov and IDV Pacific underlines the growing global importance of  Dynamic Liveness. Online crime knows no borders. Businesses, governments, and individuals need to be able to verify that the person they’re dealing with online is the right person, a real person, and that they’re authenticating themselves right now. Highly secure, easy-to-use authentication technology is essential in maintaining trust, privacy, and safety on the internet.”

Peter Christie, CEO, IDV said: “IDV Pacific is excited about our partnership with iProov. By adding iProov facial biometric authentication to our platform we can offer the most secure and accurate identity verification solutions on the market.”
