MorphoTrust launches identity-as-a-service solution

September 22, 2015 - 

MorphoTrust USA (Safran) has introduced the Identix Trusted Identity-as-a-Service (TIaaS) platform, a set of multimodal biometric identification (fingerprint, face, iris and palm), document authentication, and data verification services that help customers verify their identity.

“From financial services to healthcare there is a critical need to establish trusted identities, both in person and online,” said Bruce Berger, MorphoTrust’s general manager of commercial business unit. “We have deep expertise in establishing, issuing and verifying personal identities in some of the most demanding environments in the world. Identix TIaaS leverages our biometric, credentialing and authentication competencies for a wide variety of commercial markets—everywhere identity matters.”

Designed to be a scalable, hosted solution for public and private clouds, the Identix platform provides a set of essential services that can be used by commercial and government organizations to verify identities.

The platform is optimized for searching, processing, authenticating, and comparing different types of identity data in order to verify individuals to create online accounts, grant access to applications, services or benefits and investigate potential fraud or misconduct.

The platform is available in server-based and on-premise implementations, while future releases will include document authentication, real-time face recognition, advanced workflow management, and a catalog of API’s.

MorphoTrust is also offering Identix Mobile Software Developer Kits (SDKs) which will enable developers to deliver identity verification services to mobile devices, enabling high quality biometric and document capture as well as authentication.

The Identix TIaaS platform can be used in a wide range of applications, including financial services, healthcare, higher education, government, travel and consumer transactions.

Previously reported, MorphoTrust USA (Safran) achieved ISO 14298 certification from the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) for superior security standards in its credential production process.
