About iDGate

iDGate has developed an identity authentication system for online and mobile transactions that does not require a one-time-password via Short Message Service (SMS) or security device. The company leverages a multi-factor authentication process to send a push notification on behalf of the financial institution whenever a financial transaction is initiated that allows users to authenticate it via their smartphones. The aim is to provide better security and an easier-to-use experience to everyday users and to save financial institutions money, since the service is less expensive than the cost of using a security device or sending multiple SMS.

Toppan launches Virtual Human Lab to measure biometric and personal data

Jan 5, 2021

Company also acquires iDGate, FutureCard Jan 5, 2021 Global printing company Toppan has launched the “ Toppan Virtual Human Lab ”, a project that will focus on research and development on biometric human body measurement. The lab will utilize a Light Stage provided by the University of Southern California (USC) for high-precision face biometric scanning. The project aims at circumventing the issue of users having to register their biometric data individually for various products and services. The Toppan Virtual Human Lab can record movement of the musculoskeletal system, take body measurements of hand and foot shape, and process the information into various ways. In other words, the “Human Body Information Platform” acts as a one-stop solution for registration, processing, and sharing of this information across diverse services. The data obtained will be processed via an application programming interface (API), and displayed online via an original viewer developed by Toppan. The company also said it is working on a related smartphone app. According to Toppan, the project will help business development in a variety of applications, including 3D computer graphics , and visual media. Future applications also hint at additional industries like advertising, sports, and healthcare. Toppan subsidiary acquires FutureCard and iDGate Beyond the new project, Toppan has also been expanding steadily in Asia in the last quarter of 2020. In fact, the company’s Singapore subsidiary Toppan Leefung acquired end-to-end card solution provider FutureCard back in October. The acquisition, which was supported by Toppan Leefung’s investment platform Toppan Gravity, fits into the firm’s vision of extending its smartcard solutions and services to new markets. The move will also help Toppan develop next generation payment solutions, ID, and transport card platforms. Toppan is already partnered with Zwipe on biometric payment cards  in the region. One month after the acquisition of FutureCard, Toppan Leefung acquired Taiwan-based fintech firm iDGate Corporation. The acquisition was also supported by Toppan Gravity, and will see iDGate retain its societal structure, and help the company strengthen its worldwide market presence. iDGate focuses on the development of multi-factor authentication technologies as well as AI-powered facial recognition combined with secure mobile device techniques. Following the acquisition of iDGate, Toppan said it will further extend its coverage in Japan, Southeast Asia, and Europe.
