Global ID SA. headquartered at EPFL Inovation Park was founded in 2016. The goal is to offer for the first time innovative biometric 3D technology for the identification of people based on the venous network of the finger.
The idea was developed by Pr. Lambert Sonna, cybersecurity expert and experienced entrepreneur with a solid network, in collaboration with a team of biometric experts based in research institutes and universities in Switzerland.
The challenges of identity recognition: identity fraud and theft of personal data. As data breaches increase year by year, there is an increasing need to improve security to combat security breaches, identity theft and data hacking.
Of all industries, the healthcare industry has the highest data communication costs due to identity theft and fraud issues.
Its main objectives were:
For a more secure biometric identification including very high protection of your private data, we are developing a new technology called Global ID 3D Finger Vein.
