How it works

The business solution

2 4

Digital enrolment & verification

Ideally suited to financial institutions, micro finance providers & payment providers

How it works: Your customer captures their biometrics digitally. Their selfie image is verified against Dept. of Home Affairs and SAFPS. Proof of identity can be captured to cater for consumers who do not have a photo on file at DHA.

Identity Kiosk

Physical enrolment & verification

Ideally suited to retail stores, government offices or the healthcare sector.

How it works: Our physical enrolment and verification solution is well-suited for industries such as retail, healthcare, and government agencies, seamlessly integrating with kiosks, on-site tablets, or in-store processes.

In a world of increasingly demanding customers and ever more sophisticated fraudsters, how can you balance authenticating a customer’s identity with providing a frictionless user experience?

Our digital identity verification solution enables you to digitally onboard and verify your customers against South Africa’s largest database.

 

Through our exclusive partnership with the Southern African Fraud Prevention Service (SAFPS), we’re able provide access to:

  • The single largest trusted golden source of identities, the Department of Home Affairs (DHA).
  • The National Population Register housing details of all residents
  • Home Affairs National Identity System (HANIS) which stores related
    biometric data.
  • A database of reported, known fraudsters and victims of identity theft and impersonation.

Scaling the power of third-factor authentication with face, voice and fingerprint.

Through OneVault, our best-in-class biometric solutions provider, Secure Citizen is able to use multiple biometric modalities to verify consumers including face, voice and fingerprints. Capturing these multiple modalities builds further confidence in the true identity of the consumer and allows us to tailor a best-fit solution for each business. Both face and voice biometrics can be used for physical and remote enrolment and verification of customers throughout the customer life cycle.

During the KYC process, the customer’s face can be validated against the DHA image, the trusted golden source. There are number of key use cases, for example, a customer can use their voice to give authorisation for a transaction, or their face to login to your platform without the need for complex passwords. Fingerprint verification is used for physical verification of a customer’s identity and can be used in scenarios such as access control and transaction authorisation. In addition, contact centre calls can now progress without delay thanks to voice biometrics verification.

The Secure Citizen solution is flexible and can adapt to your operational requirements for maximum efficiencies.

The platform can be accessed using a set of specialised APIs which can be integrated seamlessly into your backend. Alternatively, we can provide you with a white-labelled portal to assist with automation of your compliance requirements.

In addition, our solutions can be tailored for compliance verification, validation, authentication and storage of documentation, allowing you to focus on your core business while ensuring that you are up to date with FICA 2021 standards. In addition, a comprehensive audit trail of all interactions with the Secure Citizen Platform can be provided.

Our solution is centred around the individual to create a corporate confidence factor where you can see how many other corporates have used the same Secure Citizen Identity.

Our verified customer database is yours.

Integration is easy with Secure Citizen. We have several flexible integrations to suit your infrastructural requirements and set up.
