LONG BEACH, New York and ATLANTA, March 25, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) (OTCQX: IDTY), which operates an Identity as a Service (IdaaS) platform that delivers a suite of secure, mobile, biometric identity solutions, available to any vertical and Noftek, LLC (www.noftek.com), a data protection and IT security company, today announced their agreement for Noftek to join the Ipsidy Partner Network and become a reseller of Ipsidy's solutions, initially in the British Virgin Islands.
In an increasingly digital and mobile world, Ipsidy helps clients know with biometric certainty who they are engaging with. Ipsidy's Identity as a Service (IDaaS) solutions help governments, enterprises, membership and faith-based organizations identify customers, employees and visitors using mobile biometric technology to reduce fraud, minimize risk and protect personal data in digital and physical transactions.
Ipsidy's mission—to secure everyday transactions using biometric identity—is a perfect fit with Noftek, a company focused on data protection and security for businesses. Noftek currently provides data protection, business continuity, disaster recovery and legal data compliance policy solutions. Their offerings address hardware failure, ransomware attacks, and natural disasters like hurricanes, while also keeping up with the latest security trends to make sure their clients stay legally compliant. Noftek secures client data against hackers and a variety of other threats without impacting day-to-day operations, whether in the cloud or on-site. Noftek will initially focus on selling Verified™, Ipsidy's mobile, biometric authentication solution.
Verified by Ipsidy allows an enterprise to provide their employees and customers with a trusted, seamless and secure biometric identification experience—allowing users to quickly capture a selfie to approve account logons and important transactions. With a blink and a smile, Verified by Ipsidy validates the photo's live nature and converts it into a biometric facial template that is matched against a reference template, stored in Ipsidy's secure platform. Ipsidy's Verified Portal, a turn key solution requiring no integration, allows customer service agents to simply login to the Verified portal to trigger authentication requests to an end-user's registered mobile phone. Alternatively, for a fully customized Verified service, system developers can quickly integrate their existing business systems to Ipsidy's IDaaS platform using our REST APIs.
"We are delighted to add Ipsidy's biometric authentication solutions to our portfolio," said Letson Jackson, Noftek, LLC, Managing Partner. "We believe that the certainty and security that Verified can offer our clients will be a key part of our offering going forward and will enable us to become an early leader in the Caribbean market for this service."
"Ipsidy is excited to have Noftek join the Ipsidy Partner Network and help us expand into the Caribbean," said James Tuffery, Ipsidy Inc. Director of Identity. "We believe that our entry into this energetic and vibrant market through our partnership with Noftek is a significant opportunity for Ipsidy and we look forward to supporting their sales efforts to expand their well-established foundation in the region.
