As part of the deal, Mobile Solutions Peru will offer Ipsidy’s suite of biometric identity and authentication products across Peru and Chile.
In a statement, Philip Beck, CEO of Ipsidy, said: "Ipsidy is pleased to partner with Mobile Solutions Peru to resell our services in Peru and Chile. Together we will offer mobile biometric identity solutions that provide the highest level of security, control and certainty for everyday transactions."
Among the Ipsidy products that will be on offer in the two Latin American countries are Access, a program which protects the perimeters of buildings or public events using just a tablet and a Bluetooth beacon, as well as Verified, which authenticates account access requests as well as business transactions using biometric technology on mobile devices.
In addition to its Verified and Access programs, Ipsidy has developed Proof, a remote identity proofing solution that uses government-issued credentials combined with real-time biometrics.
Another of its offerings that will be available in Peru and Chile is Transact, a cloud-based mobile payment gateway that allows for the design of customer loyalty programs and supports networks of agents, merchants and consumers who can accept and perform transactions using closed-loop payment cards.
Mobile Solutions Peru focuses on offering digital mobile solutions to clients in Peru, Chile and Argentina.
Headquartered in Long Beach, New York, Ipsidy operates an Identity as a Service (IDaaS) platform that delivers a suite of biometric identity security programs. Its subsidiaries outside the US include MultiPay in Colombia, Cards Plus in South Africa and Ipsidy Enterprises in the UK.
