Ipsidy signs distributor for African and Indian Ocean markets
Ipsidy today announced that Safetrade Africa, a technology development company specializing in payment processing in secure environments, will offer Ipsidy’s suite of biometric identity and authentication solutions to South Africa, African countries south of the equator, as well as the Indian Ocean islands of Madagascar, Mauritius and Seychelles.
Ipsidy’s biometric identification and electronic transaction platform facilitates a range of transactions, including payments and physical or digital access, embedded with the participant’s authenticated identity. The joint offering will initially comprise Verified, and Access, Ipsidy’s out-of-the-box, mobile, biometric identity solutions.
Verified is a mobile identity application that leverages the Ipsidy Identity portal to authenticate a user’s identity from the convenience of their own smartphone. Access helps protect any perimeter and create a safe environment by monitoring the enrolled identities of people moving in, out, and around any defined area.
“Identity and cyber security are major issues for our clients and for the financial services, payments, e-commerce wallet, healthcare, contact center and cryptocurrency exchange industries we serve,” explained Carrie Dickie of Safetrade Africa. “Our clients seek innovative solutions that offer enhanced security and protection against fraud. We believe that Ipsidy’s solutions will provide our clients with the highest level of identity and transaction authentication.”
“Ipsidy is pleased to partner with Safetrade to resell our services in the Sub-Saharan African and Indian Ocean market,” added Jonathan Ellis, managing director Ipsidy EMEA. “Together we will offer solutions that provide the highest level of security, control and certainty for everyday transactions.”
