This year’s Money20/20 USA was all about the collaborative spirit, particularly in the arena of digital identity and biometrics. The conference’s sessions were punctuated with talk of the importance of partnerships in an industry finally reaching maturity, and vendors used the Las Vegas event as a platform to announce their own new ground shaking team-ups. Perhaps the highest profile of these new partnerships was FaceTec’s integration of its ZoOm technology into Jumio’s Netverify platform; the two companies represent the best in their respective fields, the former having achieved a 100 ant-spoofing grade (along with its Level 1 certification) in the unforgiving iBeta Presentation Attack Detection (PAD) Certification test, and the latter consistently reporting magnitudinous sales growth.
On Monday, just after the news of FaceTec‘s partnership landed, I caught up with the company’s CEO, Kevin Alan Tussy at the Money20/20 exhibition hall. We spoke about what the Jumio partnership means for FaceTec, and why ZoOm was picked to bolster Netverify’s identity verification. From there we moved to talk about the aforementioned iBeta Presentation Attack Detection testing, and looked back on a successful 2018 for the 3D facial recognition company.
