Turkish bank deploys Daon’s IdentityX platform for biometric authentication

 

Daon announced that Akbank has deployed Daon’s IdentityX facial recognition technology for mobile banking authentication. Akbank is the first bank in Turkey to deploy facial recognition technology for mobile banking authentication.

According to the announcement, Akbank has embraced the concept of authentication as a platform and is committed to expanding the role of biometrics throughout its customers’ journeys and touch points with Daon’s IdentityX at the heart of the omni-channel platform.

“Nearly 250,000 of Akbank’s mobile banking users opted-in to use the facial recognition technology almost immediately,” commented Tom Grissen, Daon CEO. “This is one of the fastest-growing user adoptions we have seen globally. We attribute this to Akbank’s attention to first-class innovation, user experience and communication, combined with the appeal of IdentityX. Daon is privileged to be Akbank’s partner on this important digital journey.”

Daon worked with NTT Data in Turkey to bring the solution to the bank.

Earlier this month Daon signed a multi-year agreement with Capitec Bank of Stellenbosch, South Africa, that will see the two organizations collaborate on solutions for the bank’s clients across a range of engagement channels, using Daon’s IdentityX platform.
