Log in with Sezame: Startup Interview

SiGMA talks to Sezame startup to find out everything about their secure and simple multi-factor authentication solution

Sezame is going to bring their new way of secure logins to SiGMA’17 Startup Pitch. The startup company guarantees security with just one fingertip — no password needed to log in to a website. Sezame offers a secure patented service to protect users’ online accounts and personal data.

What is your company’s unique differentiating idea?

Sezame offers companies and users a secure & convenient service to protect their (online) accounts. Sezame delivers high security for platforms and their customers, and uses a patented remote multi factor (biometric) authentication without password (login, smartphone and biometric sensor). No additional hardware is needed.

Sezame addresses your challenges:
• Call center cost reduction: reduce trouble tickets and password resets;
• Increase online revenues: improving customer checkout process — less steps and no forgotten passwords;
• Account hacking protection: lower risk of reputation loss;
• Fraud prevention: secure your customer transactions with real biometric authentication;
• New EU data regulation: be prepared for 2018.

Sezame innovation comes from the following areas:
• Worldwide patented remote multi-factor (biometric) authentication — we move the point where the biometric authentication is actually physically needed to a geographically different location and device;
• Security through combination of three individual factors: login, smartphone (your most personal device) and a biometric identification (currently only fingerprint), which is most trusted, if deployed by major vendors like Apple, Samsung, also other options like iris scan are possible with our solution;
• No passwords stored locally or in the cloud, user’s biometric info never leaves their smartphone;
• End-to-end military-grade encryption;
• Convenience for users due to the salvation of using passwords;
• Fraud alarm in case account is being tampered with.

Integration of the Sezame SDK in most widely used platforms (e.g. PHP, .net, Java, SAP, Ruby, Magento, WordPress) can usually be done in a day.

What differentiates you from your competitors? Specifically, what do you provide that is currently not available in the market or how do you differ from your competitors?

Since our product is patented since the beginning of 2017, we are the only real remote biometric authentication provider. We move the point where the biometric authentication is actually physically needed to a geographically different location and device (could be the smartphone you are holding yourself, but could also be someone sitting somewhere else who needs to authenticate). With our solution no password at all is needed anymore.

What milestones or tangible traction have you achieved to date?

Number of different companies that from the beginning of this year — following patent approval — are piloting our solution (telecom, hosting, media, etc.).

Please explain your objectives for participating in SIGMA Pitch Event.

We think our solution is a very good match for companies in the iGaming sector. The goal of attending the SiGMA Pitch is that we get traction and a number of companies interested in doing some pilots with us.
