Uniken to Present REL-ID Platform at Money20/20

Uniken will demonstrate its REL-ID digital security solution at this year’s Money20/20 conference, the company has announced.

Uniken to Present REL-ID Platform at Money20/20In a statement announcing its participation, the company explained its platform as a “patented security protocol that binds identity and channel to ensure that user, application, and device posture and identity are verified before access to applications is granted.” And at Money20/20, the company will discuss how it has improved REL-ID with a new feature that allows organizations to mix and match authentication mechanisms depending on the requirements of a given transactions. For example, fingerprints could be required along with voice-based verification for particularly high-value transactions.

That kind of technology could prove appealing at Money20/20, where biometrics is expected to be a big topic, with major financial services companies like Mastercard and Wells Fargo slated to participate in a panel discussion on the technology. Commenting on Uniken’s plans for the conference, CEO Bimal Gandhi said the company’s team is “excited to demonstrate how REL-ID can support any biometric or advanced credentials, while strengthening the underlying secure connectivity of the entire network.”

At the conference, Uniken may also get a promotional boost through its affiliation with the influential FIDO Alliance, which the company has just joined.
