Insurance Platform Provider GFlex40 Chooses BioID for Anti-Spoofing
Nuremberg, Germany and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia – April 27th, 2021
GFlex40, Malaysia’s first digital managing general agent, has chosen BioID to deliver its regulatory compliant liveness detection for fraud prevention. GFlex40 seeks to transform the conventional insurance purchasing journey via an end-to-end digital experience. BioID’s anti-spoofing enriches the platform’s identity verification to become a fully automated, trusted process.
Liveness Detection for Automated Insurance Application
By simplifying the application process using automated biometric workflows, users can purchase insurance products from top of the line insurance underwriters through GFlex40’s online portals. BioID’s Liveness Detection for facial matching now powers the ID ownership validation and identity verification steps. The technology is ISO/IEC 30107 compliant and requires only two pictures to determine whether they were delivered by a genuine user. Dedicated to catering end-user applications, BioID liveness detection can be used with any standard smartphone or webcam.
Anti-Money Laundering and Counter-Terrorism Financing screening are a vital element of GFlex40’s insurance application workflow, complemented by image recognition and document authenticity verification through OCR and score assignments. Besides making the insurance market more accessible for end-users, the GFlex40 platform FlexyProtect is also geared at providing insurance to SMEs and businesses.
“The collaboration with our partner BioID allows us to fully automate our application processes ensuring compliance with existing E-KYC regulations, including identity verification. This directly simplifies the sign up and onboarding process, further reducing the complexity of the insurance market”, says Sathiamurthi Ramanaidu, Co-Founder and CEO of GFlex40. “We are thrilled to finally launch GFlex40 as a key step to making insurance more accessible for all Malaysians.”
Ho Chang, BioID CEO: “The insurance market is yet another industry to adopt biometric identity proofing for more efficient processes. BioID powers high assurance levels while substantially reducing identity theft, money laundering and other fraud, therefore we see the collaboration with GFlex40 as an ideal fit.”
GFlex40 was established in 2019 with the objective of closing the gap of uninsured in Malaysia.
