Singapore Fintech Festival is the world’s largest FinTech event and global platform for the FinTech community
Gradiant is showcasing at Spanish pavilion its trustworthy solutions for document fraud prevention and biometric customer identity verification
From November 11th to 15th Gradiant has an appointment in Singapore. For a week, the city is becoming the capital for fintech technologies, platforms and companies to transact in a seamless, yet secure manner. Singapore FinTech Festival (SFF) is the world’s largest FinTech event and global platform for the FinTech community, comprising start-ups and technopreneurs, policy makers, financial and technology industry leaders, investors including private equity players and venture capitalists, and academics. The last 2018 edition, drew close to 45,000 participants from almost 130 countries.
In this international scenario, and hand in hand with ICEX and IGAPE, Gradiant is showing forensic technologies and face recognition solutions at booth 4k31 at Spanish Pavilion to automate digital onboarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes in a reliable way, as well as to prevent document fraud on the Internet.
Ensuring customer security, the goal for any company
“In Singapore we are showcasing Valida, our forensic tool to detect manipulations in digital files. Last January we received our second selection to present this technology at CES in Las Vegas and we continue to show it at MWC in Barcelona and RSA in San Francisco,” explains Daniel González-Jiménez, director of Multimodal Information department at Gradiant. “After Europe and America, now it’s time to bring Valida to the Pacific, to Singapore FinTech Festival, where the world’s leading document security vendors come together.”
Valida by Gradiant’s main goal is to evaluate the authenticity of digital documents to prevent fraud in online user verification, digital on boarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes. This technology allows companies to offer an extra level of security in this operations, as it automatically analyses any type of identity document (and other PDF and JPEG files such as payroll, invoices, receipts, etc.) to detect possible spoofing attacks and forgeries in the data present in these files. Gradiant has developed this tech solution in collaboration with atlanTTic research center of Universidade de Vigo.
In order to complement this verification, Gradiant has developed liveness detection algorithms to be incorporated in the digital onboarding processes as a second authentication element, in order to prove the customer is who he claims to be. “Our solution focuses on taking advantage of digital onboarding process to collect other information that provide us a higher level of security on the users’ ID verification, such as their signature, voice or video,” explains González-Jiménez. “We own these three biometric technologies and we can implement them together or separately.”
Specially designed for KYC processes in banking, insurtech and gambling
More and more businesses are born 100% digital and more traditional ones are joining the digitized world. Some of these businesses need to verify the identity of their customers remotely and ensure. In addition, these entities have a legal obligation to know the identity of their customers as required by the 4th European Anti-Money Laundering Directive, in order to comply with the Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) requirements. This European directive aims to prevent problems such as corruption, illegal financing, and money laundering, among others, to combat illegal transactions in the digital environment.
Gradiant’s users’ authentication technologies are a complete choice to ensure security through face, signature or voice customer identification and to prevent fraud in digital business transactions.
