iProov, Socure and YooniK each form face biometrics partnerships
Belgian digital identity app itsme has selected iProov’s biometric face verification with Genuine Presence Assurance technology to support its global expansion plans.
Itsme reached a million transactions per month back in mid-2018, supported by what is now Thales mobile authentication solution. Consumers in the Netherlands can now use itsme, completing an eIDAS-compliant onboarding process with iProov’s biometric authentication from any mobile device.
“We needed a technology partner to support our mission to make secure digital identities available to everyone. iProov was the obvious choice. They hold privacy and security in the highest regard and offer the future-proof, cutting-edge technology that will enable us to identify users internationally,” itsme CEO Stephanie De Bruyne says.
“I have huge respect for how itsme has successfully driven the uptake of digital identity in Belgium, so it’s a pleasure and privilege to be partnering on a solution for the Netherlands,” states iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud. “This is yet another demonstration that iProov is the technology of choice for Europe’s leading eIDAS providers.”
More than 35 percent of Belgians use itsme to interact with over 150 private companies and the Belgian government.
