Ipsidy also significantly enhanced its product portfolio with the launch of its new Proof service for digital onboarding and high-value transaction verification, and its mobile device-based physical access technology, Access.

The company recorded a net loss of $10 million, but even that was down 57 percent from $17.5 million the previous year, with loss from operations dropping from $12 million to $9.3 million. Basic and fully diluted net loss per share was $0.02, an improvement from $0.05 in 2017.

“We have made tremendous strides over the course of 2018. We are firmly on the road towards achieving our strategic objectives,” comments Ipsidy Chairman and CEO Philip Beck. “Everything starts with trusted identity. Our identity platform offers a suite of mobile biometric services that our customers can use across multiple use cases to seamlessly create trusted transactions, with a common user experience when delivered through the Ipsidy mobile identity application. We look forward to more customers and users and to growing our platform revenue over the coming quarters.”

The company will soon announce new resellers in the U.S., the Caribbean, and Peru.
