DUBAI, United Arab Emirates | October 27, 2020
uqudo today announced the availability of its digital onboarding and biometric authentication platform in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, an online store providing applications and services for use on Azure. uqudo customers can now take advantage of the productive and trusted Azure cloud platform, with streamlined deployment and management.
uqudo’s platform, operating as an Identity as a Service (IDaaS), enables a seamless onboarding experience for customers’ users while ensuring their security and privacy. The platform streamlines the end-to-end flow of user registration, ID document validation, and background screenings, creating a frictionless experience for customers and users alike. In addition, it automates the distribution of the necessary user details and know-your-customer (KYC) information with affiliates (with user consent), in compliance with data privacy regulations. The platform’s world-class biometric authentication capabilities replace the need for lengthy, complicated passwords and security questions vulnerable to exploitation.
“Organizations are increasingly looking to digitalise operations to comply with data privacy regulations. But that shouldn’t come at the expense of customer experience and place administrative burdens on employees,” said Mohamed Fagiri, CEO, uqudo. “Our flexible and modular platform is designed to expedite customer onboarding and authentication, increasing organizations’ operational efficiencies while delivering seamless experiences to its users. With the scalability Microsoft Azure Marketplace offers, our platform is robust enough to tackle tomorrow’s challenges today.”
Sajan Parihar, Senior Director, Microsoft Azure Platform at Microsoft Corp., said, “We’re pleased to welcome uqudo to the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, which gives our partners great exposure to cloud customers around the globe. Azure Marketplace offers world-class quality experiences from global trusted partners with solutions tested to work seamlessly with Azure.”
