OneVisage to Join Silicon Valley Plug & Play Accelerator by Startupticker

by admin on March 24, 2017

OneVisage, a Lausanne based startup specialising in cyber security solutions, has been selected among the companies that will join the Silicon Valley accelerator Plug and Play in the 2017 FinTech Accelerator Batch. OneVisage is the only Swiss startup participating in the program.

OneVisage is a cyber-security company developing biometric solutions for financial services integrators and identity management providers. The startup developed a 3D facial authentication technology, which will allow financial services, cybersecurity, identity & access management and healthcare providers to offer simple, secure, universal and cost-effective authentication to their end users.

Having convinced the Silicon Valley Plug and Play Ventures team, the OneVisage was selected among the 175 startups to join Silicon Valley Plug & Play Accelerator in the Fintech Accelerator Batch this spring.

With 175 startups out of the 8,500 submissions, the Silicon Valley accelerator Plug and play is taking in the largest cohort ever. The startups including the OneVisage make up the fifth batch which will begin this spring through June in nine separate programs based on each company’s focus. Each program comprises of different weekly educational sessions with mentors, experts, partners and investors, as well as larger, program-wide networking activities ahead of the cohort’s demo day in June. The startups will also be introduced to the ecosystem of 180 corporate partners, 200 VCs, and 583 alumni.

“We look forward to the arrival of brilliant minds to our headquarters. We foresee our corporate partners more involved than ever. The startups can expect to run more pilots, diversify their business offerings, and raise additional funding to build their dream,” comments our Founder and CEO, Saeed Amidi.

The Accelerator Plug and Place takes no equity from its participants, spokeswoman Allison Romero said to the Silicon Valley Business Journal. Startups get free desk space in Sunnyvale and free meals through the duration of the program. Between now and June, Plug and Play’s goal will be to identify the most promising startups in the program, and invest in those. Plug and Play runs a total of 11 accelerator programs, in partnership with large corporations.

Innovaud: “Nouvel environnement, nouvelles opportunités”

by admin on October 4, 2016

En plein essor depuis quelques années, la technologie financière ou Fintech est un domaine d’activité qui offre de réelles opportunités à nos entrepreneurs. Des startups vaudoises se distinguent d’ailleurs régulièrement par leur expertise. Le journal « Le Monde » consacrait récemment un article à Monito (anciennement TawiPay), le site lausannois qui permet de trouver les meilleurs services pour transférer de l’argent.

Aujourd’hui l’essor de startups Fintech ainsi que d’importants changements au niveau réglementaire, tel que MiFid II pour l’Europe, exigent une remise en question des pratiques existantes. C’est pour mieux comprendre les nouveaux enjeux et opportunités qu’Innovaud a organisé, en partenariat avec la BCV, une matinée dédiée aux Fintech, avec un accent sur la gestion des risques et des réglementations.

Sept interventions ont ponctué cette matinée animée par Benoît Curdy devant un parterre d’une cinquantaine de décideurs et d’experts. Dans la première intervention, Joao-Antonio Brinca, responsable du département Stratégie et organisation de la BCV, a identifié et décrit les trois âges de la Fintech :

1) L’âge des pionniers, issus des cendres de la crise de 2008, avec des startups qui poussent des modèles en rupture, une forte visibilité et l’amorce d’un changement possible de paradigme.

2) L’âge de la réponse des acteurs traditionnels (les banques) avec une large prise de conscience, des investissements massifs, mais également un virage culturel pas toujours aisé à négocier

3) L’âge des partenariats qui émerge actuellement et qui voit les pionniers – maîtrisant le digital – et les traditionnels – ayant la confiance du client – se combiner pour améliorer le service et la marche de l’industrie. Cette intervention fut suivie par celle plus technique de Dominik Witz, Responsable de Swisscom Banking. Nos cinquante participants ont pu alors découvrir l’étendue des questions réglementaires du Fintech avec les solutions de Digital Identification and Signing.

Après ce tour d’horizon des dangers et des opportunités liées aux changements réglementaires, quatre startups et une scale-up ont été invitées à présenter leurs solutions. Avec des bureaux à Lausanne et Zurich, Edge Lab propose une solution complète de gestion des risques liés aux portefeuilles financiers pour les banques, conformément à toutes les contraintes réglementaires et avec un niveau d’intelligence aujourd’hui inédit dans son domaine. Deuxième startup à se présenter avant la pause, Qumram enregistre grâce à sa technologie tous les échanges écrits, téléphoniques et digitaux entre une banque et ses clients. Comme nous l’a expliqué son directeur des ventes, M. Patrick Siegenthaler, les nouvelles réglementations exigent que les archives puissent être consultées par les clients pendant 5 ans par les clients et 10 ans par les autorités.

Les trois dernières startups à se présenter sont toutes actives dans la gestion des risques. Basée au Swiss Technopole Y-PARC, Netguardians voit la réglementation FINMA 2016/X comme une opportunité d’améliorer la couverture des cyber risques. La scale-upd’Yverdon-les-Bains a acquis une expertise unique dans le développement de logiciels de monitoring permettant d’éviter les fraudes en milieu bancaire.
Comme on a pu le découvrir dans la présentation suivante, la société RiskConcile de Jan de Spiegelheer a également acquis une expertise certaine dans l’identification de risques.

Last but not least, nos participants ont eu le plaisir de suivre la présentation de Christophe Remillet, CEO de la startup lausannoise OneVisage. Spécialisée dans l’authentification par selfie, l’entreprise a montré tous les avantages offerts par la reconnaissance faciale 3D, une technologie qui devrait selon toute vraisemblance faire disparaître à termes les mots de passe et surtout fortement améliorer l’expérience digitale liée à l’authentification, source de tracas, de fraudes et de frustrations.

Au terme de cette matinée passionnante, il est encourageant de constater que si les défis liés aux nouvelles réglementations Fintech sont considérables, ils représentent aussi de formidables sources d’opportunités pour nos acteurs innovants qui disposent de l’expertise et des compétences nécessaires pour les relever.

OneVisage unveils First Passwordless Biometric Solution at SIBOS 2016

by admin on September 28, 2016

OneVisage unveiled at SIBOS 2016 in Geneva its 3DAuth PaaS platform. This is the first biometric authentification solution for mobile devices that is totally password-free for customers, co-workers and IT administrators. The solution opens new perspectives in fast growing industries such as fintech.

OneVisage, one of the leading 3D facial authentication companies developing breakthrough digital identity solutions for financial services and Identity and Access Management (IAM) providers, announced that its 3DAuth digital identity verification platform now provides a complete passwordless experience to users and IT administrators. The solution was unveiled Monday at SIBOS 2016 exhibition in Geneva.

“According to a PwC information security 2015 survey, current and former employees in financial services organizations still represent nearly two third (64%) of security incidents. As most of, not to say all, financial services companies rely on passwords or pin codes for handling their core application systems – even when biometric alternatives are in place – we realized how dangerous and inconsistent this situation is from a security angle.” said Christophe Remillet, CEO, OneVisage.

“As everybody knows, password systems are now broken. We are proud to unveil at SIBOS 2016 what seems to be the first authentication solution that totally eliminates passwords and pin-codes. Upon discussing with bank security managers and IT administrators, we realized the difficulty and pain for them to manage tens, even hundreds of passwords. But beside painful administrative tasks, “what you have” solutions such as passwords or security tokens create weak security points as well as non-repudiation issues that are very difficult to detect and overcome. Thanks to 3DAuth facial authentication platform, financial services can now protect themselves against internal threats while making important security cost savings.” said Christophe Remillet, CEO, OneVisage.

OneVisage is a leading cyber-security company founded in 2013 with offices in Lausanne and Zurich. The startup enables financial services, Identity and Access Management providers and mobile operators to reduce identity theft and transaction abandonments. OneVisage was among the Red Herring 2015 Top 100 Europe startups, CTIA Startup Lab 2015 – Identity Management Winner and Edison Awards 2016 – Gold winner in category “ICT security”. The company is also a member of the FIDO alliance and European Association for Biometrics (EAB)

20 Minutes: Identification faciale sous la menace d’usurpateurs

by admin on August 23, 2016

Des chercheurs ont mis en évidence les lacunes de logiciels s’appuyant sur des images en deux dimensions.

La protection de données ou le déverrouillage de son smartphone via la présentation de son visage n’est pas sans faille. Une équipe de l’Université de Caroline du Nord l’a démontré au détriment de cinq services spécialisés disponibles sur les boutiques Google Play et App Store. Pour leur expérience, ils se sont servis des photos disponibles en ligne de vingt volontaires. Ils les ont ensuite fait passer dans leurs modèles de rendus 3D. Ils ont réussi à déjouer la vigilance de quatre applications, avec des taux de réussite allant de 55 à 85%. Aucun service n’a même résisté en recourant aux photos portraits originales prises avec les volontaires, rapporte le site Wired.

Cela ne surprend pas Christophe Remillet.«Il faut faire face à la réalité, commente le patron de OneVisage. On arrivera toujours à déjouer facilement la technologie basée sur la 2D». L’étude américaine fait plutôt les affaires de la start-up lausannoise qui développe une technologie de reconnaissance faciale basée sur la 3D. «Nous avons 1oo% de résistance en présence de photos 2D ou de masques 3D», met en avant Christophe Remillet. Sa solution, à vocation universelle et basée sur la 3D, a notamment l’avantage de pouvoir fonctionner avec des caméras frontales basiques de smartphones.
