Unibank Implements Ipsidy’s Verified™ Biometric MFA Solution Integrated with Datapro’s e-IBS® Core Banking System: Identity Authentication Service for Online and Mobile Banking
LONG BEACH, NY, PANAMÁ CITY, PANAMÁ and MIAMI, FL, October 11, 2018. – Ipsidy Inc. (authid.ai) [OTCQX: IDTY], a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, Unibank Panama. (www.unibank.com.pa), a leading Panamanian bank specializing in corporate and private banking, and Datapro, Inc., (www.datapromiami.com), a developer of advanced software systems for financial institutions today announced the implementation of Verified by Ipsidy, a mobile, biometric multi-factor authentication (“MFA”) solution.
Ipsidy’s identity transaction platform helps enterprises authenticate the identity of the person on the other side of everyday transactions. Datapro provides its e-IBS® core banking suite to banks and other financial institutions. Datapro has integrated Ipsidy’s MFA into e-IBS to provide their banking customers with an identity authentication solution that puts the banks’ account holders in control of their identities using their own device. Verified allows enrolled account holders to enjoy a trusted, seamless and secure biometric identification experience when they quickly capture a selfie in the Ipsidy mobile application. Ipsidy’s platform converts the selﬁe into a biometric facial template that is matched against a previously enrolled reference template.
Unibank, an established user of Datapro’s core banking software, will become one of the first to offer the integrated MFA solution and leads the way in Panama. “We needed a secure but user-friendly solution to provide additional protection for our customers’ online and mobile account access, account change authorization as well as transaction approval. The Ipsidy/Datapro solution checks all the boxes,” said Nicolás Saval Unibank’s Vice President of Technology. “The implementation was seamless from our point of view and we believe that the added account protection will give our customers increased comfort and confidence in their online and mobile banking experience.” Unibank’s launch of Verified is subject to final local regulatory approvals.
“Identity and cyber security are major issues for our financial services clients, who seek innovative solutions that protect their customers’ accounts and give them enhanced and convenient control over access to their money,” said Javier Montero, CTO of Datapro. “We are looking forward to continuing to roll out the Verified by Ipsidy solution and thereby become a leader in the Latin American market utilizing this technology”.
Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO Ipsidy said, “We look forward to supporting Unibank in their launch and Datapro in their continued rollout of our combined solution to their extensive customer portfolio.”
