Yoti approved to list services on the UK government’s G-Cloud framework

 

Yoti has once again been approved to list services under the UK Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud framework. According to the announcement, a range of Yoti services covering identity verification, authentication, e-signing and age estimation are now available on G-Cloud 11.

The UK Crown Commercial Services G-Cloud framework enables UK public sector bodies to select and buy cloud computing services without having to go through a lengthy procurement process. It provides a quick and easy route to market, access to the latest technology and reduced cost of ownership. There has been £4.72bn worth of sales through the framework since its inception in 2012 with 45% of money spent awarded to SMEs.

Yoti was recently approved as a digital ID for age-restricted purchases such as energy drinks, lottery tickets, and tobacco products by the UK’s Association of Convenience Stores (ACS). Yoti partnered with FaceTec in March for biometric authentication with liveness detection, and recently endorsed the Biometrics Institute’s seven ethical principles for biometrics.
