About Grabba and its solutions
"We create solutions in terms of digital identity for people, that’s why we work with governments. Some of our clients include law enforcement, border security, etc. Biometrics has been around for quite some time and actually helps authentication in addition to other authentication techniques we have right now: for example, the widely spread 2-factor authentication. With biometrics we can take advantage of the extra security of digital identity, creating a holistic solution that includes fingerprints, facial recognition, iris recognition, etc. and, in short, information that is already in electronic passports and smart identification cards. So what we do is close the gap in today’s digital identity challenges between governments, citizens and industries.
Some of the clients and industries we work with include banks, financial institutions, the aforementioned government agencies and, of course, always with that objective of improving digital identity of citizens."
“We work with the highest standards of cybersecurity. As we work with very sensitive information and with banking and governments, we need to provide the most advanced levels of protection both for them and regarding the data we work with, which is people’s identity after all. This is a collaboration, we need to build trust between our clients so they feel confident about using our solutions. We also understand how fast technology developments go so we are always improving and adapting to new AI, IoT, and 4IR technologies. In fact, fingerprints is one of the most secure forms of authentication.”
About managing data
"Data is probably the most sensitive part of our job. Managing and making sure that data is kept secure is our utter vision. We work in a framework where identity is the most important thing for us as we work with governments and banks from regions like the US, Europe, Middle East. We are deploying solutions based on AI and ML towards cybersecurity to precisely make sure that people and our clients’ data is kept safe all the time.
We are also exploring ways of using blockchain to keep transactions and people’s data safe. And blockchain actually fits our vision of leveraging trust. We see blockchain as one of the best technologies going forward to create secure hubs.
We have been approached by many different compliant agencies, software validation companies and one of our first concerns is to be compliant with international standards, like KYC, and we are always doing stress tests to our solution to make sure that it meets all the standards and making sure we are up to the challenge."
