Biometric tech firm expands global presence with Singapore government contract
A London-based identity verification specialist has continued its global expansion by securing a contract to supply the Singapore Government’s national digital identity programme.
iProov has been appointed to provide facial verification services for the Government Technology Agency of Singapore (GovTech) under the National Digital Identity (NDI) programme.
iProov has been selected alongside digital transformation company Toppan Ecquaria to support the government’s digital identity scheme SingPass, following an open international tender.
This contract is the latest for iProov, which has seen its technology used by the likes of the UK Home Office and the US Department of Homeland Security.
Andrew Bud, founder and CEO at iProov, commented: “This pioneering service enables citizens to live in a world of trust online. By iProoving themselves, the people of Singapore can have even greater confidence in their safety, privacy and security on the internet.”
“This marks a tipping point for facial verification. The technology has advanced so much in recent years that it can now provide the highest levels of reliable security for the authentication of a national digital identity program.
“It has been a privilege to work on this forward-thinking project with real trailblazers in national digital identity. The rest of the world will study this innovation and draw conclusions from its success.”
