New Innovatrics mobile biometrics platform supports online access to public services
Innovatrics has released a new platform that enables online access to government services via secure biometric identity verification on consumer devices, according to a company announcement.
Developed to facilitate secure remote access during the pandemic, the Trusted Enrollment platform combines Innovatrics’ digital onboarding platform and Automated Biometric Identification System (ABIS) into a single solution.
Through the Trusted Enrollment app, users will be able to prove their identity by taking a photo of their ID and a selfie for matching with facial recognition.
“During enrollment, every new user has to pass a liveness check to make sure that the onboarded person is real and not a spoof,” said Matus Kapusta, head of Government Solutions at Innovatrics. “Subsequently, the enrollee can be checked against the existing biometric database to ascertain the entry is not a duplicate or belonging to a blocklist.”
Kapusta also clarified that a manual check via human operators will be available, to further combat identity fraud.
“Our Trusted Enrollment module ultimately accepts, denies, or presents fraud assessment results to the operator who can review them and decide how to proceed.”
The data captured in the enrolment process will be stored in the platform, and later used to authenticate the person on various e-Government services, including the renewals of IDs, driver’s licenses, or online visa applications.
Innovatrics Head of Global Sales Peter Martis states that the solution addresses the high rate of abandoned enrollments which is currently the main problem with many onboarding solutions.
The announcement of Innovatrics’ Truster Enrollment platform follows the company’s implementation of cloud biometric authentication services from Daltrey in November.
In the same month, Innovatrics also partnered with Credence ID as part of the World Bank project to develop solutions for the healthcare system in Senegal.
