Ipsidy and GFS Software Announce IdLok[TM] Distribution Agreement for Brazil

Biometric, Multi-Factor, Identity Authentication Service

LONG BEACH, New York and SAO PAULO, Brazil, November 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

Ipsidy Inc. (http://www.ipsidy.com ) (OTC: IDGS), (formerly known as ID Global Solutions Corporation), a provider of secure, biometric identification, identity management and electronic transaction processing services, and GFS Software, a Brazilian technology company, today announced they have entered into a distribution agreement for IdLok, Ipsidy's biometric multi-factor identity authentication suite of services, for Brazil.

Ipsidy's identity transaction platform helps our customers verify the identity of the person on the other side of everyday transactions. Ipsidy's identity transaction platform facilitates a range of electronic transactions, including physical or digital access, payments or votes, by embedding them with the participant's authenticated identity. IdLok is our mobile identity application that provides users with a frictionless identity authentication experience that puts them in control of their identities using their own device.

GFS has agreed to resell IdLok's Visitor Access and Concierge solution that grants a visitor an IdLok 'guest' pass. The solution includes confirmation of a guest's arrival by means of a simple facial 'selfie', using advanced facial recognition technology on their own device. The solution works with the IdLok Mobile Concierge application, which offers facility attendants a real-time display of visitors and an easy tool to re-verify a visitor's identity as needed. IdLok Visitor Access requires no integration and is multi-lingual, and thereby is quickly accessible in Portuguese by the Brazilian market. GFS will also market IdLok to support authentication to other verticals including verifying callers to contact centers and securing digital access and payment transactions for financial services companies.  

"We are excited to offer Ipsidy's IdLok solution to our customer portfolio," said Guilherme Figueiroa, CEO of GFS. "Identity management and cyber security are very big issues in Brazil. We have noticed increasing demand from banks, insurance companies, and credit card operators for technologies capable of providing identity verification. Our residential and commercial property owners are also seeking solutions that provide their tenants with seamless and safe access to their premises. We believe that IdLok offers our customers secure identity authentication that is easy to implement and delivers their employees, consumers, residents and visitors a convenient, user-friendly experience."

Philip Beck, Chairman and CEO of Ipsidy said "Our agreement with GFS furthers our goals of delivering solutions that provide a high level of transaction security, control and certainty operating in both physical and digital environments. Our identity platform supports a broad range of transactions and is language agnostic, thereby making the solution accessible to customers around the world."
