Biometrics start-up AimBrain has signed a partnership agreement with mobile wallet and remittance service NOW Money, to provide the biometric authentication for its smartphone app.
AimBrain’s SaaS facial and behavioural authentication modules will strengthen NOW’s security and give its customers a frictionless user experience, encompassing biometric access control and eliminating the need for password authentication.
“We’re thrilled to be partnering with such a forward-thinking company as Aimbrain,” said NOW’s Chief Operating Officer, Oliver Baillie. “We are responding to a clear problem in the GCC – financial inclusion for low-income migrant workers. Our aim is to give low-income workers access to the financial system for the first time, and AimBrain is a key part of our proposition, as our customers are saying they want to be better protected. By utilising AimBrain’s user-friendly and secure biometric technology, we are delivering them control over their finances in a much more secure way.”
AimBrain’s Chief Commercial Officer, Peter Reynolds, said, “The partnership with NOW is a key milestone in our international growth. Their mission is to improve employee welfare for low-income migrants in the Middle East and we are only too happy to help improve the usability. Everyone knows passwords are ending soon.”
