Daon provides FIDO-compliant biometric authentication for Hong Kong bank’s mobile customers
Daon and Hong Kong-based ecommerce firm Tradelink have deployed a fingerprint and facial recognition authentication solution for mobile customers of Dah Sing Bank (DSB).
Customers of DSB, one of Hong Kong’s leading financial services groups, can use Daon’s IdentityX platform for FIDO-compliant authentication and digital onboarding. This provides customers with a convenient and secure log-in experience without having to enter a password. IdentityX also supports authentication with voice, behavioral, and palm biometrics.
“We are pleased to partner with Tradelink on this innovative initiative for Dah Sing Bank,” said Tom Grissen, CEO, Daon. “Our partnership with Tradelink continues to make a significant impact in the financial and banking industry throughout Hong Kong. Daon’s technology provides a trusted digital security experience for all of our customers. We look forward to continuing our collaboration with Tradelink as the demand for more secure and convenient authentication increases among mobile banking customers.”
Tradelink CTO Andrew Cheng said that the companies will now work to extend the application to other areas, like high-risk transactions and securities trading.
Tradelink subsidiary Digi-Sign partnered to provide another Hong Kong bank with a mobile authentication solution based on FIDO standards earlier this year, and Daon announced payment technology for Amazon Alexa in March which it says will be implemented by several major financial institutions this year or next.
