Another identity specialist has turned to iProov for liveness detection. Evernym has revealed that it will be integrating iProov’s Genuine Presence Assurance technology into its own digital credentialing platform, as well as its consumer-facing Connect.Me mobile app.
Evernym’s Verity solution is a self-sovereign identity platform designed for enterprise-level organizations. It allows those organizations to issue digital credentials to their employees, and to verify those credentials when those employees need to gain access to sensitive corporate materials.
iProov’s technology will be used to strengthen the integrity of those credentials. It will be used during the remote onboarding process to ensure that the individual receiving the credential is indeed present. It will then do the same during subsequent identity checks once the credential has been created. In that regard, iProov will essentially bind the person to their credential and the device on which it is stored, which means that they can be verified with a facial recognition scan rather than a PIN or some other form of on-device biometrics.
With iProov’s liveness detection, Evernym will be able to guard against credential sharing, spoofing, and other potential threats to the enterprise.
“Evernym is constantly enhancing every aspect of our platform and service to meet the needs of our production customers,” said Evernym CEO Steve Havas. “iProov shares our commitment to security, privacy, and putting users first, and their technology will allow us to take further steps forward in empowering people with control over their personal data.”
The announcement continues iProov’s strong performance in the past few months. The company has added several new clients to its portfolio, providing Genuine Presence Assurance for Acuant’s Trusted Identity Platform and bloomd’s digital community platform while also improving the utility of IDV Pacific Pay’s document recognition solution.
Evernym, meanwhile, recently participated in a UK digital identity pilot in collaboration with Deloitte and Onfido.
