Q&A With Christophe Remillet, Founder of OneVisage

by admin on July 1, 2017

LTP Team: What is the problem with two-factor authentication?

Christophe Remillet: On one hand, you have passwords and PIN codes that are painful and unsafe. On the other hand, you have two authentication factors or two-step authentication solutions that are seriously impairing the end-user experience, resulting in >30% of transaction abandonments. So it has to be simpler and safer.

LTP: Are the new generation of millennials more willing to switch to biometric authentication?

CR: Recent reports indicate that 75% of generation Z wants to use biometry. Biometric solutions need to be aligned with the nature of the transaction. For example, low-value payments must be instantaneous and shouldn’t require any specific actions from users, whereas high-value transactions should not necessarily be that fast but should be really secure.

LTP: Banks are slow at adopting biometric authentication. Why? 

CR: There are multiple root causes that are slowing down the process. First, it’s mainly about finding a biometric solution that really preserves five criteria/key values: user-experience, security, universality (aka multi-channels), cost-effectiveness and data privacy. Until OneVisage, no one in the market came with a solution that fulfilled these five criteria. Second, as a matter of fact, most core banking systems were designed +20 years ago, when the concept of multi-channels didn’t really exist at that time. Taking into account the mobile device revolution is a big change and banks need time to adapt their infrastructure and product offerings. Lastly, there are important data protection and privacy regulations that are coming out, which must be taken into account per country, therefore making the whole adoption process complex.

Q&A With Christophe Remillet, Founder of OneVisage

LTP: Why is now the right time to adopt 3D authentication?

CR: In a nutshell, the market is now looking for security and universality. As a matter of fact, we are now in 2017 and there are roughly 50 mobile devices which are fingerprint-enabled out of more than 24,000 mobile devices. If you do the math, you’ll see that less than 18% of mobile device owners worldwide can use this biometric modality. With more than 2.2 billion devices shipped out there, it becomes now urgent to find out a truly universal solution that runs on mobile devices. Facial authentication is the only one that fulfills great user experience, simplicity, cost-effectiveness, and universality. But the industry has focused on 2D-based solutions (2D facial, 2D eyes regions) to ease the user-experience, sacrificing the security. It is now well-known that all of these 2D solutions can be spoofed in minutes or even seconds by just using a picture or video of you. This is where 3D facial authentication is changing the game. 3D facial authentication is redefining the anti-spoofing and hacking limits. As an example, OneVisage is the only one that can guarantee 100% spoof-proofing to any printed or static picture of you.

LTP: Apple and Samsung’s new 3D camera will push banks to 3D authentication. Can you elaborate on this statement?

CR: Yes, you’re right. We are really impatient at OneVisage to see the first mobile devices embedding these 3D cameras. This will be a game changer as it will immediately propose to people the simplest and natural authentication process: an individual will just have to look at the camera to get strongly authenticated in less than one second. It cannot be simpler. The second key benefit will be about totally rejecting any spoofing attacks based on video replay or use of 3D avatars. In other words, it means that it will be impossible to spoof (not to be confused with a hack) such a biometric system, therefore providing a superior level of security than security tokens (which you can exchange or get stolen easily). We expect the accuracy to be so high that identical twins will be distinguished easily.

LTP: Why will OneVisage lead the 3D authentication space for banks?

CR: OneVisage is positioned as an independent 3D biometric solution provider in the market. Banks are looking to fully control solutions and low-coupling to any specific vendor or solution. Using the 3D facial biometric solution of a specific manufacturer will be total nonsense for a bank as it would immediately mean that the bank is depending on that specific solution. And on top of it, the bank would just give its customers database to the manufacturer. This is where OneVisage is acting as an agnostic third party, making the bridge between financial services and manufacturers.

LTP: If OneVisage’s product is successful, how will this positively impact banks in the next five years?

CR: OneVisage’s 3DAuth technology will be a game changer as it will allow financial services to offer higher security than security tokens or other biometric means, enable tens of millions of people to access digital financial services by just using their own mobile device without requiring any specific hardware at the price or even at a fraction of the price of password-based solutions with a strict observation of individual’s data privacy and protection. Banks will allow to nearly eliminate identity theft and make customers have a greater digital banking experience while better protecting their data privacy.

OneVisage Announces First 3D Facial Authentication Solution Running on iOS

by admin on June 22, 2017

OneVisage, the award-winning and leading 3D facial authentication company today announced that it will unveil first 3D facial authentication solution that runs on iOS platform. As of today, there is no 3D facial authentication solutions available on iPhone or iPad mobile devices.

According to market experts, first front 3D cameras and 3D facial verification solutions should be unveiled later, in Fall this year by few major equipment manufacturers.

Today is a special day as we are proud to announce the first full 3D facial authentication solution that runs on iOS mobile devices. Financial services and identity management solution providers are looking to offer the same user-experience and high-level of security to all their customers, regardless if they use an iPhone 6, Samsung Galaxy S8 or Huawei Honor as an example. We can now potentially address more than 60% of mobile device owners in the world – aka more than 1 billion people – which probably positions us as the most universal and strongest authentication solution in the market.” said Praveen Gajjala, Sales Director EMEA of OneVisage.

Omni-channel management is key for financial services to offer the same experience to customers across branch, mobile and on-line channels. According to 2016 North America Consumer Digital Banking Survey made by Accenture Consulting, only 27% of consumers say that omni-channel experience is seamless.

We listened financial services and learnt that omni-channel and universality are key features. Allowing customers to log in their e-banking account on their laptop or mobile device, by only using their mobile device, is now a must-have feature. Our 3DAuth solution is uniquely poised for being the universal solution to address nearly all authentication use cases for banks, payment service providers and card issuers, regardless the user’s mobile device platform.” said Brian Haverty, Vice President of Sales, Americas.

According to analyst Ming Chi-Kuo interviewed by Business Insider UK in February 2017, Apple’s next generation 3D iPhone camera could reinvent user experience.

We are really impatient to see the first smartphones coming with 3D front cameras, which are foreseen to be unveiled in October-November this year. When combined to our unique 3DAuth technology, such devices will allow instantaneous, very strong authentication, users just making single shot selfies in few hundred milliseconds. Security will be seriously reinforced as it will be impossible to spoof such devices with a video, 3D avatar or virtual reality tool. We believe this will announce the beginning of the 3D facial authentication revolution that will supersede any other biometric alternatives, making passwords and pin-codes things of the past. This will be a major change in our everyday digital live.” said Christophe Remillet, CEO of OneVisage.

CEO Christophe Remillet and Praveen Gajjala, OneVisage EMEA Sales Director, will be exhibiting and meeting with financial services partners at Money 20/20 – Europe in Copenhaguen, Denmark. Christophe and Praveen OneVisage SA – Rue de Bourg 25 – 1003 Lausanne – Switzerland www.onevisage.com will provide live demonstrations of the latest OneVisage authentication software developed for financial services, using both iOS and Android mobile devices.

3DAuth SDK for mobile devices is currently available via an exclusive alpha/beta program. Please contact us for further information.

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.

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.
