The biometric authentication company provides security for user verification in an increasingly digital world.
Technology company iiDENTIFii has been awarded the Best Enterprise Solution Award at the MTN Business App of the Year Awards 2021 for its biometric digital authentication and automated onboarding solution.
Upon receiving the award, co-founder and chief strategy officer Lance Fanaroff said:
“It was humbling to see iiDENTIFii in such an impressive line-up. We were happy to be a finalist, so winning was just an incredible feeling.”
Lance added that the past three years have been exhilarating as the company worked to develop what is now one of the world’s leading digital authentication and onboarding solutions. “The credibility gained from this award is almost priceless, and will greatly assist us to further implement our growth across the African continent.”
He explained that while the authentication solution provided by iiDENTIFii is technically complex, it assures that an individual is a real person and present at the time of transaction or verification, and that the person’s online identity, in a digital world, is who the person claims to be. “In essence, we wanted to make sure we could offer a secure and user-friendly technology platform that authenticates physical identities in a connected world.”
Lance said that it is well known that the Covid-19 pandemic has elevated the role of digital solutions, almost forcing businesses of all types to conduct business online. “And with the exponentially increasing online digital penetration, almost all businesses need solutions that minimise their risk and make online business models convenient and safe to use.”
He believes that it is for these reasons that the company was bestowed the honour of winning the award. “It is imperative that technology solutions solve real world problems. We believe that innovation has to solve some of the significant challenges we have as a continent, and as a world. We already have some incredible examples locally and we are so proud to now stand among them too.”
