Benefits to your business
Security and Privacy
Fraudsters are well organized and have a constantly evolving tech stack to circumvent identity verification. We know that and we have been preventing fraud many years with proprietary artificial intelligence tailored to strong liveness check and face matching as well as to end-to-end protection of the authentication process against video injection. In addition, while ensuring security, we process data locally in several regions and store no personal information in our domain, making it clear our commitment to delivering peace of mind to our partners in terms of their client's privacy.
No-code setup, low-code integration
Have the power of facial biometrics in your client's journey with a few clicks and two lines of code for integration. Regardless if your app is web or native, mobile or not, our face capture interface is designed to beautifully integrate with it. You can easily customize colors, messages, and other aspects of the capture interface with a few clicks in our console. Sign up, earn $10 of credit, and get impressed!
Privacy-first anti-fraud network
The power of the network effect for fraud prevention is well-known. Having historical data about transactions and making sense of how they interconnect can enable very effective checks through face match, device fingerprinting, geo-location patterns, and so on. What if this fraud prevention network is completely anonymous, storing no personal information? We call this the Saffe Network, a trust network specially designed with the best of cryptography and distributed computing in order to meet the highest standards of personal data protection by only handling anonymized data in a distributed fashion.
Affordable to use everywhere
We believe that the true potential of facial biometrics can be achieved by offering a legitimate, frictionless authentication experience to the end user for a competitive price to our partners. This way, you can consider the power of facial biometrics in your anti-fraud strategy wherever you see fit, and not only for KYC, for example. With Saffe, the alternatives of sending SMS or email for MFA or relying on cumbersome verification code apps and black-box device-based biometrics is much less appealing.
SECURITY, NOT FRICTION
Founded in 2015 with academic research in our DNA, Saffe's mission is to deliver to the end-user the best combination of security and convenience through facial biometrics, with a special focus on digital and financial inclusion. With security in mind, in 2019 we were ranked a top 15 vendor in NIST FRVT 1:1. Likewise, our liveness detection technology is compliant with ISO/IEC 30107 in the context of NIST FRVT PAD, and is being used at large scale for the authentication of millions of sensitive online transactions (such as for KYC) every month.
A track record of innovation
Innovation has been our drive since the beginning and an example of that is the fact that we are pioneers in implementing the concept of "naked payments" in physical stores, an experience where the customer is able to pay with just its face and nothing else. Indeed, we were granted by FCA a license to operate as a small payment institution in the UK with the purpose of exploring the concept of "naked payments" in the region. We were also part of the first cohort of LIFT LAB, Brazilian Central Bank innovation laboratory, and have been engaged with the biggest card networks with the same purpose, as well as with the purpose of exploring the concept of 3DS with facial biometrics for online purchases.
For us, the sky is the limit! The application scenarios of our technology are diverse, and our products fit perfectly on a range of user journeys, including on robust KYC, within MFA for strong customer authentication, at e-commerce checkouts, on access control at offices, buildings, public transportation, airports, and much more. In fact, we highly appreciate engaging with our partners to co-innovate new user journeys, and have great flexibility for that with our proprietary technology.
Preventing mule account, account takeover, etc.
As an anti-fraud at checkout.
For supermarkets, drugstores, etc.
At public transportation, offices, etc.
Financial services is our prime use case. Our partners can easily integrate Saffe into their digital products for remote authentication in a number of user journeys. Digital banks, banking as a service solutions, IDtech companies, lending platforms, cashback programs, sports betting apps, you name it. We can help you at KYC for onboarding new clients, on MFA of sensitive transactions related to account takeover, on bank transfers from a certain amount, and at many more user journeys.
A good online shopping experience requires fraud prevention strategies that introduces as little friction as possible. This is why facial biometrics at the online checkout has been considered promising within the 3DS framework. With facial biometrics, online retailers have been experiencing a growth in conversion of purchases initially considered risky by incumbent solutions, but that were correctly accepted with the aid of facial biometrics. That means more security, better user experience, and more revenue!
We are pioneers in implementing the concept of "naked payments" in physical stores, an experience where the customer is able to pay with just its face and nothing else. Indeed, we were granted by FCA a license to operate as small payment institution in the UK and have also been operating the concept in Latin America in partnership with payment processors and retailers.
Access control is also a compelling application of our technology, with a wide range of possibilities. Partners have been integrating our technology for use on public transportation at buses, as well as to access working spaces, gyms, etc. Indeed, our core system can be embedded in a multitude of low-power devices, and this is something that we offer in partnership on a project-by-project basis.
