FinovateEurope 2018 / DFT Empower

Presenter Profile:

How they describe themselves: Leveraging the ubiquity of smartphones and tablets, DFT Empower works with financial institutions, interators, micro-finance organizations and others who require biometric authentication in the developing world.

Our parent company, Diamond Fortress Technologies, one of the leading mobile fingerprint biometric companies, made a strategic decision to focus on promoting financial inclusion in the developing world through DFT Empower.

Getting more “unbanked” people involved in the global financial system would benefit not only the newly-banked individual, but also his or her community.

How they describe their product/innovation: DFT Empower will be launching the version 5.0 of our disruptive mobile biometric software, ONYX for iOS, Android, and NodeJS. ONYX v5.0 is easier to integrate, more uniform across all platforms and much better documented with an entirely reworked UI/UX.

Not only does ONYX 5 give developers more flexibility in deployment, it includes our Enhanced Liveness Detection and Anti-Spoofing (LDAS) technology and the ability to track and capture more than one finger at a time.

Product distribution strategy: Direct to Business (B2B), through financial institutions, through other fintech companies and platforms, licensed
