Gradiant is showing forensic technologies and face recognition solutions that can automate digital onboarding and Know Your Customer (KYC) processes in a reliable way, as well as prevent document fraud on the Internet. 

From June 11th to 13th Gradiant has an important appointment in London. For a few days, the city is becoming the capital of identity recognition technologies.

Identity Week is the largest technology fair focused on the concept of identity in Europe and this year brings together more than 3,000 international industry actors in three world-class events: Digital:ID, Planet Biometrics and Security Document Week

Daniel Ramos, International Business Development Manager at Gradiant, said: "Now it's time to bring Valida to the UK, to Identity Week, 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 developed by Gradiant, in collaboration with atlanTTic research center of Universidade de Vigo, 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.

In addition to forgery detection technology for digital documents, Gradiant is also showing in London faceIDNN to verify user’s identity by comparing the face with the photograph in his/her ID, driver’s license or passport. Using both images, techniques developed by Gradiant verify in real time if they belong to the same person. Our experience in facial recognition has allowed to develop techniques for anti-spoofing attacks, as well as guaranteeing verification despite significant appearance changes have happened against the photo in the ID card, or if the person has aged. faceIDNN has been co-funded by Xunta de Galicia (Galician Regional Government) by Ignicia Programme (IN8555A IGNICIA Proba de Concepto)

In order to complement this verification, Gradiant has developed biometrics of signature, voice and video (liveness detection) to be incorporated in the processes of digital onboarding as a second authentication factor, in order to prove the customer is who he claims to be. “Our solution focuses on taking advantage of digital onboarding process in order to collect other types of information that provide us with a higher level of security in their verification, such as their signature, voice or video," says Ramos. "We have these three biometric technologies and we can implement them together or separately.”
