09 January 2019 16:09 GMT

GlobaliD, a digital identity service provider, and OneVisage, a firm developing 3D facial biometry and 3D graphical authentication running on standard mobile devices, announced today a partnership to integrate OneVisage’s Premier Face 3D facial biometry technology in globaliD’s digital identity offering.

By 2021, the total cost of cyber-fraud will represent more than $6 trillion annually, according to experts—an amount that approximates the combined Gross Domestic Product of France and Germany in 2017. With password logins accounting for 80% of cyber-fraud cases, it is more urgent than ever to find solutions that authenticate who you are rather than what you know.

 “The foundation of a strong digital identity begins with a secure and reliable onboarding process. For globaliD, that means securely establishing identity through a system of third-party attestations—which now includes OneVisage’s industry-leading biometric technology,” said Greg Kidd, CEO of globaliD and formerly Chief Security Officer at Ripple Labs.

“In order to provide the highest level of identity verification, globaliD has introduced the concept of attestations of personal information by multiple trusted partners across several categories of identity data including biometric. As part of collecting identity attestations, Premier Face by OneVisage will bring 3D facial biometry check to any modern Android or iOS mobile devices. This will enable globaliD’s users to easily access and connect with the world in a secure and reliable way,” said Vadim Slavin, Director of globaliD Attestation Platform.

“We are very excited to be working with globaliD and bring them 3D facial biometry technology in a universal, secure and cost-effective way. Nowadays, digital service providers require to offer a consistent and universal authentication experience to all their customers, regardless if their device costs $ 100 or $ 1’000 or if it runs on Android, iOS or Windows platform. globaliD is paving the road of what reliable identity verification services must be,” said Christophe Remillet, founder and CEO of OneVisage.
