iProov biometrics now available in Australia and NZ through IDV partnership, podcast launched

iProov facial biometrics will be used by IDV Pacific to enable IDV’s partners in the region to verify the identity of individuals based on their passport or driver’s license photo.

A scan completed with a computer or mobile device, and including a brief controlled illumination for Genuine Presence Assurance, confirms the individual’s identity and liveness at the moment of authentication to protect against sophisticated video replay attacks, according to the announcement. By implementing this technology, IDV customers can complete highly secure identity checks for processes including conveyancing, fraud protection, and meeting Know Your Customer, anti money-laundering or labor law requirements.

“The partnership between iProov and IDV Pacific underlines the growing global importance of Genuine Presence Assurance. Online crime knows no borders,” iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud points out. “Businesses, governments and individuals need to be able to verify that the person they’re dealing with online is the right person, a real person, and that they’re authenticating themselves right now. Highly secure, easy to use authentication technology is essential in maintaining trust, privacy and safety on the internet.”

“IDV Pacific is excited about our partnership with iProov. By adding iProov facial biometric authentication to our platform we can offer the most secure and accurate identity verification solutions on the market,” states IDV CEO Peter Christie.

The partnership expands iProov’s footprint to the Australian and New Zealand markets.

A new digital identity podcast series has also been launched by iProov, with the first episode featuring Digital Identification and Authentication Council of Canada (DIACC) President Joni Brennan.

iProov has also recently announced deals to supply its biometric facial recognition to a challenger bank and a community engagement app.
