The Liveness and 3D Face Matching AI product will be embedded in digital identity programs to secure online activities in banking and finance, remote work, healthcare, and government ID projects. FaceTec notes its biometric authentication is enhanced by a Spoof Bounty Program and by best practices learned from performing large numbers of liveness checks.
“We are excited to be working with gDi, a trusted and highly-regarded integration partner in the MENA region,” said in a prepared statement Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec. “The upcoming integration projects we will undertake with gDi require solutions that have consistently demonstrated exceptional performance and security, and have beaten out dozens of other vendors from around the world.
