TIS Inc., part of TIS INTEC Group, and the French company IDEMIA, the global leader in Augmented Identity announced the launch of joint research and development of biometric digital identity solutions for financial institutions.
The two companies aim to conduct verification testing in Japan throughout 2018 targeted at financial institutions such as banks and credit card companies, amongst others, through joint research and development of highly secure and reliable biometric digital identity solutions based on IDEMIA’s digital identity and payment platform.
Biometric digital identity solutions for financial institutions are solutions that support the utilization of digital identity technologies, including biometric authentication, identity verification, and digital signatures. The incorporation of advanced digital identity technologies will enable the development of secure and convenient services for end users.
TIS has developed the brand-name of “PAYCIERGE”, based on its rich experience with development of critical systems for credit card companies and cutting-edge technologies. It has developed a broad range of services, from business systems that perform debit and prepaid card processing to mobile solutions in close proximity to the consumer for enhancing user convenience.
TIS and IDEMIA are now aiming to blend the two companies’ technologies to offer highly reliable and convenient mobile-based biometric digital identity solutions for financial institutions such as banks and credit card companies.
