LONDON--(Business Wire / Korea Newswire)--Shufti Pro has been recognised as a sample vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Digital Identity 2023, published on July 26th, 2023. The users can read and download the report, which is available for Gartner® subscribers only.

Shufti Pro was mentioned at the bottom of the page under “Sample Vendors” on Page 59, among other Sample Vendors.

“We have been providing innovative IDV solutions to businesses across the world since 2017, and continue to improve by implementing the latest technological enhancements and robust data security policies,” said Victor Fredung, CEO of Shufti Pro.

The Growing Concerns of Generative AI

Gartner's report also sheds light on the growing concerns of deep fake technology and its increased usage by scammers:

“An attacker might use a presentation attack (e.g., using a picture of the target’s face). Vendors’ presentation attack detection (PAD) claims require careful scrutiny. Exhaustive evaluation is beyond the capability of most buyers. Active PAD techniques may erode UX benefits. Generative AI (“deepfake”) attacks demand more sophisticated countermeasures, which become the key differentiator among vendors.”

Ensuring Confidence in a Person’s Identity

The report stated:

“Authentication protocols have the most forward momentum, driven by the interest in passkeys — that is, multidevice credentials. Innovations providing confidence in real-world identity claims are reaching plateau. This includes identity verification and data-centric identity affirmation.”
