Undercoverlab and iProov partnership set to combat online fraud

World-leading facial biometric authentication technology provider, iProov, has joined hands with Andorra-based custom software developer, Undercoverlab, in a noteworthy collaboration.

The London-based firm, renowned for its Biometric Solution Suite, has integrated its technology into Undercoverlab’s Tsubacheck security solution. The partnership aims to provide more rapid and reliable user authentication using facial biometrics, primarily catering to government and financial institutions across Europe and Central America.

In the backdrop of the escalating threat of online fraud, traditional authentication methods such as passwords and one-time passcodes (OTPs) are falling short in terms of security. Organisations globally are scouting for reliable alternatives that offer trusted, user-friendly solutions with an element of transparency. Facial biometric authentication, hence, has emerged as a viable and secure method for verifying digital identities in real-time.

The biometric facial authentication solution provided by iProov, grounded in scientific methodology, offers comprehensive protection against threat actor methodologies ranging from basic presentation attacks to advanced generative AI-based deepfakes.

London-based iProov, a pioneer in facial biometric authentication technology, serves a range of enterprises, including governments and banks, aiding in secure customer identity verification.

Their state-of-the-art technologies like Liveness Assurance and Genuine Presence Assurance are used by prominent institutions such as the U.S. Department of Homeland Security, UK Home Office, and the Australian Taxation Office among others. The firm aims to ensure that an online customer is the correct individual, a genuine person, and is authenticating in real time.

Undercoverlab, stationed in Andorra, brings over a decade’s experience in custom software development to the table. Their multidisciplinary team boasts expertise in engineering, design, security, and legal advisory. The company specialises in developing custom software that can easily integrate with any existing software or platform, offering swift adoption and significant competitive advantages. Tsubacheck, their standout project, is a multi-layer security solution that enables swift and secure user verification and geolocation.

iProov founder and CEO, Andrew Bud, said, “Reducing fraud and increasing customer satisfaction are top priorities for organisations across the globe. Undercoverlab needed a secure and reliable identity authentication solution and by integrating iProov Biometric Solution Suite into Tsubacheck we ensure that every user is quickly verified and checked to prove they are the right person, a real person, and authenticating right now.” He also expressed excitement about the new opportunities their partnership with Undercoverlab presents in strengthening security for customers.

Undercoverlab CEO, Josep Rivas, echoed the sentiment, stating, “With iProov’s technology, we are fortifying Tsubacheck’s ecosystem, and creating a robust and synergistic authentication protocol. This strategic integration has significantly bolstered Tsubacheck providing unparalleled user authentication reliability without compromising the user experience. We look forward to the benefits this collaboration with iProov will bring to our customers.”
