MIAMI, FL and LONG BEACH, NY, March 5, 2018. — Datapro, Inc., (www.datapromiami.com), a developer of advanced software systems for financial institutions and Ipsidy Inc. (www.ipsidy.com) [OTC: IDTY], a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, today announced they intend to offer IdLok™, Ipsidy’s biometric, multi-factor, identity authentication service to Datapro’s financial institutions throughout the Latin American market.
Ipsidy’s identity transaction platform helps its customers authenticate the identity of the person on the other side of everyday transactions. The platform facilitates a range of such transactions, including payments and physical or digital access, embedded with the participant’s authenticated identity. IdLok is a suite of biometric, multi-factor, mobile applications that provide users with a frictionless identity authentication experience that puts them in control of their identities using their own device. The IdLok application is specifically designed for use by the account customers of financial institutions, to provide them with simplified, secure access using a mobile device.
Datapro and Ipsidy have entered into a non-binding summary of terms and subject to concluding a definitive agreement and technical implementation, Datapro intends to offer IdLok as part of its e-IBS core banking solution for its clients in Latin America, in order to enhance security and efficiency for online account access.
“We are looking forward to launching the IdLok solution and thereby become an early leader in the Latin American market to utilize this technology” said Javier Montero, CTO of Datapro. “Identity and cyber security are major issues for our clients and for the financial services industry generally. Our clients seek innovative solutions that protect their customers’ accounts and give them enhanced and convenient control over access to their money. We believe that IdLok will provide our clients with secure identity authentication that achieves these goals in an efficient way.”
Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy said “Ipsidy is pleased to partner with Datapro to launch IdLok throughout the Latin American market. This joint offering, when implemented, will further our goal of delivering solutions that provide the highest level of transaction security, control and certainty that is required to operate in the critical financial sector.”
