iProov Wins Best Biometric Solution at the Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards 2022

24 February 2022

iProov has been recognized as the Gold Winner of Best Biometric Solution at the 2022 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards for the second year running.

The award recognizes iProov’s work to make the world a safer place, by using biometric face authentication to verify that an online user is who they claim to be.

Previously, if an individual wanted to open a bank account, they would need to go into a branch with their ID. A staff member there would verify that the person present matched the photo on the ID and that they were indeed the person named on the passport or driver’s license.

iProov’s patented Genuine Presence Assurance® technology enables banks, governments and other organizations to provide this service securely online, making it simple and convenient for the user. iProov technology verifies that an online individual using a mobile device or computer is the right person, a real person, and that they are authenticating right now.

During COVID, the need for online identity verification has soared. iProov has provided essential services, enabling governments, healthcare providers, banks, social networks and other organizations around the world to support their customers and citizens. In 2021, during a single 10-day period, iProov saw online verifications surpass the number achieved in the whole of 2020. More than 1 million verifications were processed in a single day several times throughout the year.

Who does iProov work with?

  • iProov is being used by global banks that want to onboard customers quickly and securely, while complying with Know Your Customer (KYC) regulations. A great example is Rabobank – they were losing young customers by asking them to come into a branch to upgrade from a junior account to an adult account. By using iProov on a mobile app, Rabobank is now retaining those customers and encouraging young digital natives to remain loyal.
  • Rail operator Eurostar is using iProov in a trial to allow passengers to complete secure ticket verification and UK exit check on their mobile devices prior to travel.
  • iProov’s solution for the National Health Service (NHS) in the UK has been invaluable during the pandemic, enabling citizens to book medical appointments, order repeat prescriptions and access their COVID vaccination credentials.
  • The US Department of Homeland Security announced in 2020 that they were moving into stage 4 of a pilot to use iProov to help manage remote cross-border travel.
  • In the UK, the British government used iProov for the EU Exit Settlement Scheme, enabling EU residents to apply for settled status in the UK post-Brexit.
  • The Singapore government is using iProov to give citizens access to over 500 digital services.
  • The Australian Taxation Office is using iProov to enable citizens to set up their myGovID digital identity.
