gDi Implements FaceTec’s Leading 3D Face Authentication Software for the Largest Bank in the UAE

Gulf Data International (gDi) has been a trusted MENA tech integrator and solutions provider for nearly 40 years, and now in partnership with biometrics technology leader FaceTec, announces the launch of Liveness Detection and 3D Face Authentication software at First Abu Dhabi Bank (FAB), after a successful rollout for the class-leading solution.

FAB has chosen gDi to integrate their digital security solution, which is powered by FaceTec’s 3D Liveness Detection and 3D Face Matching software. The system provides unparalleled security during user onboarding while providing an interface that is fast and intuitive for everyone, regardless of their device.

Sunil Dixit, Head of Digital Banking, Consumer Banking Group, at FAB, said:

"FAB consistently works to apply innovative technologies to deliver a simpler, more convenient and smarter customer experience, at every step in the banking relationship. FaceTec offers us a valuable tool towards achieving this objective, with their solution allowing us to conduct liveness checks quickly and seamlessly, without the customer needing to do anything other than look into the camera. Their 3D matching capability is unique and is widely adopted by leading companies worldwide, with local support through their channel partners. It was a pleasure for us to work with gDi on the implementation of this cutting-edge solution, which will enhance the overall experience customers have with us." Based in Abu Dhabi, FAB is the UAE’s largest bank and one of the world’s largest and most trusted financial institutions, offering an extensive range of personal solutions, products, and services that provide a tailored customer experience. The addition of 3D Liveness Detection and 3D Face Matching now provides unprecedented security while onboarding new users and verifying existing customers from any smart device. A two-second video selfie proves the user’s Liveness, matches the user’s 3D FaceMap to their official photo ID, and sets up their new account. Every time the user returns, the ongoing authentication checks again for Liveness and then compares their new 3D FaceMap to the one acquired during enrollment. If the correct user is present, they get instant access. All onboarding transactions are processed via the FAB platform “Payit,” which has now expanded to many other applications within the Bank’s portfolio.

The implementation of 3D Liveness Detection and 3D Face Matching has enabled higher levels of security for Payit, the UAE’s first all-in-one digital wallet. Created by FAB, Payit was built with a vision to help the UAE evolve into a cashless society.

Omar Atta, gDi’s CCO, explains:

"This project was implemented together with our partner, FaceTec, who also helped us tailor the product to the specific requirements of the UAE market. The rollout was well prepared beforehand so that we were able to execute it entirely without delay. A quick and effective rollout has resulted in FAB expanding the solution through its network of bank-wide applications in Q4, 2021." "We are honored to be working with both gDi and FAB on such an important and forward-thinking project in the UAE," said Kevin Alan Tussy, CEO of FaceTec.

"Working with such talented, smart people resulted in a seamless rollout of critical biometric cyber-security technology that will provide a foundation for the ambitious and progressive programs at FAB, and setting an example for the rest of the world."
