LONG BEACH, New York and LIMA, Peru, Oct. 3, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) (OTCQX: IDTY), which operates an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform offering a suite of secure, mobile, biometric identity solutions, available to any vertical, today announced that it is launching its Proof solution in Peru, enhanced with verification by RENIEC.
RENIEC is the Peruvian National ID Registry, which manages all national identities and issues electronic national ID cards. Ipsidy has signed an agreement with RENIEC under which RENIEC, once connected to the Ipsidy platform, will be able to validate the authenticity of Peruvian national ID cards, whose information is remotely collected using Ipsidy's Proof service by means of the Ipsidy App on a smartphone. Under the agreement Ipsidy will be able to connect its IdaaS platform to RENIEC in Peru, in order to submit facial biometric and national ID card data for validation against RENIEC's own national identity records. This platform enhancement will help to provide a source of trusted identity for Ipsidy's identity transactions.
In a world of increasing fraud and security threats coupled with the demand for quick, digital onboarding solutions, it's more important than ever, especially in today's mobile world, to verify identity with speed and certainty. Financial institutions and businesses of all descriptions need to have complete confidence in the identities of customers and prospective employees. Proof by Ipsidy is a mobile identity verification solution using government-issued credentials as the trusted source, combined with real-time biometric certainty and the convenience of mobile technology. Proof provides remote mobile identity proofing and transaction authentication for high-integrity business interactions like major financial transactions, application and enrollment processes, new customer, employee, and student on-boarding, sale of age-restricted product, building access verification, and more.
Proof by Ipsidy can also ensure that the rightful owner of the ID card is present at the time of a transaction, by submitting the owner's selfie captured by the Ipsidy app in real-time to be matched against the biometric ID credentials of those citizens in the Peruvian government's official records. Using Ipsidy's identity proofing services with the validation of RENIEC's trusted database of stored biometric identification templates, Ipsidy will enable Peruvian businesses to remotely gather national ID documentation securely and with certainty.
For "know your customer" (KYC) processes, new customer applications and account opening and employee on-boarding, Proof provides an efficient, secure and trusted solution for financial institutions, telco's, money transmitters and other businesses to replace existing manual processes and hardware.
"The Agreement with RENIEC marks an important milestone in our IdaaS platform development," said Philip Beck, CEO of Ipsidy. "This represents the first implementation in our plan to connect to national registries around the world to provide our customers with government-backed certainty as to the authenticity of identity credentials. Everything starts with trusted identity, and validation by the government that issues a document provides the highest level of trust for our clients."
