Daon and Tradelink bring biometric tech to Dah Sing Bank
Biometric authentication specialist Daon has teamed up with Tradelink to give customers of Hong Kong’s Dah Sing Bank the option of biometric authentication when accessing bank services, reports David Penn at Finovate. The bank will leverage Daon’s IdentityX platform to offer both fingerprint and facial authentication.
The IdentityX platform provides fast identity online (FIDO) capabilities that enable authentication based on a wide variety of biological attributes including voice, face, behaviour, and palm. Institutions can integrate their current security systems into the platform, as well as add new authentication systems as they become available. This enables institutions to extend the lives of their older or customised security systems and devices. The component approach also makes it easier for organisations, including Dah Sing Bank, to make more specific decisions on which cybersecurity technologies best suit their specific customer preferences, Daon says.
In February, Daon reported on the successful implementation of a FIDO biometric solution with one of Hong Kong’s largest banks. The deployment was completed in partnership with Tradelink subsidiary Digi-Sign.
Headquartered in Reston, Virginia and founded in 2002, Daon began the year partnering with North African security and document dematerialisation specialist Gemadec. Last autumn, Visa announced that it would leverage IdentityX to power biometric services for its Visa ID Intelligence platform. Around the same time Daon also inked deals with Kony and Nations Trust Bank of Sri Lanka.
