Gradiant takes part in 4 Years From Now (4YFN) for the first time, the startup business platform of Mobile World Capital Barcelona that enables startups, investors, corporations and public institutions to discover, create and launch new ventures together. From 26 to 28 February, Barcelona joins the fastest growing digital startup event in the world to connect startups, investors and corporations during Mobile World Congress, the largest gathering for the mobile industry. With more than 19000 attendees, 600 startups, 700 investors and more than 270 speakers, 4YFN offers unique connecting initiatives, such as custom networking activities, technical abilities workshops, congresses, community outreach and open innovation programmes.

Gradiant has its own space at 4YFN within the Spanish Pavilion (Montjuic Hall M8, booth R2.19). Hand in hand with the ICEX, Gradiant showcases in Barcelona its biometric solutions for digital onboarding and KYC processes, biometric login on mobile devices, and secure document access and signature for Samsung Note 8 devices.

Facial recognition for authorised access

During 4YFN Gradiant is showing the latest biometric solutions for digital on boarding, KYC processes, and biometric login for mobile devices. faceIDNN verifies user’s identity by comparing the face with the photograph in his/her ID, driver’s license or passport. Using both images, the verification techniques developed by Gradiant verify in real time if they belong to the same person. Likewise, selfie&sign is a secure and easy-to-use solution for mobile biometric login. This face biometric recognition solution incorporates an advanced mechanism to avoid spoofing based on the simultaneous verification of the user’s handwritten signature.

Gradiant’s experience in facial recognition has allowed to develop techniques for anti-spoofing attacks, as well as guaranteeing verification even when there are changes of appearance in front of the photograph of the ID card, or the person has aged. Both, faceIDNN and selfie&sign incorporate these technological innovations, especially in dealing with the customer and digital on boarding services.

Gradiant Signer allows to access and securely sign any document anywhere

Dynamic Signature Verification technology

After successful presentation at CES 2018, Gradiant shows in Barcelona the integration of Dynamic Signature Verification (DSV) biometric technology into Samsung Galaxy Note devices. The solution, so-called Gradiant Signer, allows to access and securely sign any document anywhere, and has been specially designed for Samsung Galaxy Note.

A user is authenticated via Samsung Pass to get access to a confidential document and sign it with S-Pen anywhere and anytime in a secure and reliable way, since user’s signature is verified through Gradiant’s DSV technology. The combined product thus comprises three complementary security layers. On the one hand, the physical biometric recognition of the user (iris and/or fingerprint) and the electronic signature, both powered by Samsung Pass. On the other hand, the biometric handwritten signature recognition, powered by Gradiant’s DSV technology.

Lessons Learned with Vanderbilt: How have you adapted to the COVID-19 pandemic?

With the postponement of tradeshows and events due to the effects of COVID-19, Vanderbilt and ComNet have taken their high quality, innovative solutions online, directly to their customer base. Through an Online Events and Training resource, you can stay connected with the brands’ top resources and products, as well as join upcoming product webinars hosted by their in-house experts. With a majority of the world currently working from home, businesses must respond to this changing landscape. As such, Vanderbilt and ComNet have turned to online resources to share new product demonstrations and other company news. One cornerstone of the ACRE brands approach was the launch of their Online Events and Training resource page. Ross Wilks, Head of Marketing Communications at Vanderbilt, credits this online resource as the anchor to their communicative success with customers at present. “Through weekly webinars delivered by our in-house experts, Vanderbilt and ComNet have embraced more virtual opportunities to continuously communicate to our customers regarding our latest and most relevant products,” he says. “To date, our webinars have covered a wide range of industry topics such as Why Physical Security and Cloud go together, and The most recent developments in card cloning and reader hacking. Attendance to these online events has proved popular and effective in keeping communication with our customer base open and engaging.” Each webinar ends with a Q&A section, as well as follow-up articles on the most asked questions, plus recordings of the webinars being made available to attendees. As such, the webinar approach has proven a receptive approach for Vanderbilt and ComNet. The Online Events and Training resource acts as a one-stop-shop for all virtual information. Overall, the page outlines the brands’ value-added resources for customers, including the ability to request a remote product demonstration, the availability of free online training, 24/7 access to the Vanderbilt webshop, plus the aforementioned weekly webinars. Vanderbilt and ComNet’s business mantra is built on a foundation of customer-focused core values such as empowerment, collaboration, and high performance and Wilks credits this mentality with their ability to keep information flowing to their base during the present pandemic. “The ACRE brands moved early to kick-start online webinars and ramp up awareness of their already existing online training and shopping options. Now more than ever, it is important to keep customers up to date on the latest offerings,” Wilks explains. “Our commitment has always been to make their customer’s security journey the best possible experience, and that is what this Online Events and Learning page primarily focuses on,” he concludes.

What’s new with video management systems (VMS)?

Video management systems (VMS) have been around almost since the advent of IP cameras.

But the evolution is far from over. We asked this week’s Expert Panel Roundtable: What’s new with video management systems (VMS), and what are the new opportunities?
