Innov8tif Selects ID R&D's IDLive Face for Remote Customer Onboarding

ID R&D, a biometrics technology provider offering artificial intelligence-based voice and behavioral biometrics and voice and face anti-spoofing technologies, is partnering with Innov8tif, a software provider that has integrated ID R&D's IDLive Face into its EMAS eKYC (electronic Know Your Customer) product.

EMAS eKYC is available to companies in banking, financial services, and telecommunications. It includes Innov8tif's OkayID, ID Capture through OCR and Smart Card reading; OkayFace, real-time facial recognition and anti-spoofing; OkayDoc, AI-assisted identity document checking; and OkayDB, identity proofing through connected databases.

ID R&D's IDLive Face provides fully passive liveness detection to OkayFace. With IDLive Face, Innov8tif now offers anti-spoofing measures that bolster existing security processes.

"Our goal is to help businesses deliver both customer experience excellence and compliance with regulatory requirements," said George Lee, Innov8tif's CEO, in a statement. "After evaluating IDLive Face and piloting with customers, we found that we could deliver an experience not possible with our previous liveness solutions. ID R&D enables us to lower friction at the critical point of opening new accounts, thus reducing abandonment and user problems, but without sacrificing security."

ID R&D's IDLive Face doesn't require users to perform any specific actions during the authentication process. Powered by AI-based algorithms, the software runs on a server architecture and processes an image in near-real time. It works with mobile images as well as those captured on desktops, and with native or new applications.

"Innov8tif's motto of 'no one wins unless everybody wins' parallels our product vision of meeting the highest security needs while eliminating customer pain during the authentication process by rendering it invisible," said Alexey Khitrov, CEO of ID R&D, in a statement. "ID R&D's IDLive Face prevents the most sophisticated spoofing attempts by confirming both the identity and the physical presence of the authorized user and doing so without any effort required from the user. With our flexible architecture and deployment options, Innov8tif can easily introduce liveness detection and biometric authentication across its product suite for fast, secure, and convenient KYC and onboarding."
