iProov brings remote biometrics to physical locations with cross-platform technology

 

Biometric identity authentication technology offered for remote transactions by iProov has been launched for cross-platform applications to bring the same level of assurance to low-security branches and other physical locations, such as kiosks and unstaffed offices.

The new Verifier product allows organizations to offer biometrically secured services to customers without smartphones, and can provide an extra layer of security for high value transactions or in new locations. The technology is easy to use, according to the company announcement, with users standing stationary for 30 seconds or less to have their identity verified.

Banks, governments, and travel providers are among organizations that can benefit from both mobile and fixed terminal authentication, iProov says, for applications from KYC and service access to benefit enrolment and screening processes.

“Over 2.5 million people ‘iProoved’ last year on their mobiles or desktop computers. That same secure, effortless authentication is now possible on kiosks and fixed format screens. Our customers can offer greater accessibility and inclusion, while pursuing opportunities for delivering services in new environments,” states iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud.

“It’s incredibly important for users to feel involved in the authentication process, and we know they appreciate seeing it unfold on-screen. It reassures them that appropriate care is being taken to ensure they are who they say they are. We care deeply about user experience and have overcome some interesting challenges to replicate this on kiosks. It’s a fantastic piece of innovation from our team.”

iProov launched its Palm Verifier last year, and the biometric technology won Best in Show at FinovateEurope 2019. The company also just announced the opening of a U.S. headquarters in Maryland.
