OT-Morpho unveils its new document authentication solution using DESKO’s PENTA Scanner

OT-Morpho, a leader in digital security and identification technologies, announces the launch of its Morpho Identix document authentication solution, an innovative way to make sure ID documents are genuine. It combines OT-Morpho’s new generation, cross-platform, intelligent ID document authentication software with DESKO’s PENTA multifunctional ID document scanner*.


Morpho Identix

Morpho Identix verifies the authenticity of a comprehensive range of travel and identity documents from around the world, including passports, national identity cards, visas, immigration cards and driving licenses. The advanced document authentication solution operates with trained intelligence. It analyzes document images and applies authentication rules based on the type, version, country of origin of the document, so as to seek and check the covert and overt security features, infra-red and ultra-violet details expected from a genuine document. Data extraction and cross-checks are included in the process, all in a few seconds.

Governments, border polices, financial and commercial organizations can use this fast, automated authentication process to confirm the document is genuine, while extracting data for auto-population of fields, data-mining, audit trail creation and reporting. For additional authentication checks, OT-Morpho's world-acclaimed biometric face technology can be added to compare the portrait of the document's bearer with the facial image stored in the chip, or search for the bearer's identity in facial lists of persons of interest. For data extraction and auto-population from non-ICAO documents, Visual Inspection Zone-Optical Character Recognition (VIZ-OCR) can be made available.

"The growth in proof of identity is both regulation and exposure to risk driven. The return on investment by automating the process and streamlining the workflows is also highly attractive. So, we are delighted to bring to the market this best-of-breed OT-Morpho bundled solution. Our experience in government identity documents means authentication sits naturally and comfortably in our products and solutions portfolio," declared Antoine Grenier, General Manager and Vice-President for Access Control, OEM & Gaming at Morpho.


We are pleased to add OT-Morpho's software expertise to our full authentication solution. We experience an increasing number of organizations' fears and concerns about ID document forgeries, which are becoming increasingly more sophisticated. With this realization comes the decision for many commercial enterprises to take the important step from read-only and data extraction, to full authentication.
