iProov Reports Generative AI Threats Driving Momentum for Biometric Identity Solutions as Organizations Strengthen Digital Onboarding and Authentication 

In 2023, iProov, the leading provider of science-based facial biometric identity solutions, experienced substantial growth driven in large part by the growing prevalence of generative AI-based threats to remote onboarding and remote authentication processes.

In addition to traditional identity fraud concerns, organizations must now mitigate risks driven by a rapidly growing number of threats from weaponized generative AI tools.  Crime-as-a-Service networks have democratized the accessibility and affordability of these highly sophisticated tools allowing even low-skilled threat actors to create lifelike synthetic media such as deepfakes to undermine remote identity verification processes.

“iProov has developed a science-based biometrics identity solution suite that is uniquely able to establish the genuine presence of an individual ensuring that they are the right person, a real person, and they’re authenticating right now,” explains Andrew Bud, founder and CEO, iProov. “This approach is the single most effective way to incapacitate generative AI-based attacks before they can cause damage.”

Emerging GSMA Specifications to Grow Global IoT eSIM & iSIM Connections by 680% over Next Four Years

Basingstoke, UK – 26th February 2024: A new study from Juniper Research, the foremost experts in telecommunications market, found the global number of IoT eSIM connections will near 1.3 billion by 2028, from 165 million in 2024.

This growth will be driven by emerging eSIM specifications that provide greater flexibility to enterprises to remotely provision eSIM profile switching over IoT devices.

The GSMA’s SGP.32 is the newest technical specification for eSIM remote provisioning for IoT devices, and enables the remote activation of eSIM profiles via an eIM (eSIM IoT Manager). Previous eSIM specifications caused network or user-interface constraints for IoT devices, as they relied on SMS for profile activation.

Report author Elisha Sudlow-Poole remarked: “Stakeholders must begin preparing for SGP.42 immediately, as iSIM standards become finalised. Standard-agnostic platforms that are flexible to upcoming form factors, certifications and use-case demands must be developed to capitalise on eSIM and iSIM market growth.”
