Sedicii is one of just three start-ups handpicked from over 500 European companies by CaixaBank to work with it to make its customer onboarding process fully digital.
The Waterford-based company has developed technology which enables real-time identity verification by certified, trusted identity providers.
Its “zero knowledge proof” protocol authenticates individuals and businesses without the need to widely transmit private information online or to store it on servers .This significantly reduces the risk of identity theft and other fraud, a serious concern for consumers and corporates alike.
“We have been working on this for a number of years but this is the first Tier One bank that we’ve secured as a partner and they are as excited about working with us as we are with them”.
“We’ve already seen what started as one project morphing into three different parts of the bank so we’re looking at corporate banking and credit cards but also in specialist areas such as escrow services. Some of these are niche products but they could each in their own right turn into something big”.
Founded by Mr Leslie, who also previously established Kyckr, a compliance company that listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) nearly five years ago, Sedicci was previously named as one of the World Economic Forum’s most promising technology pioneers.
Ireland South East’s Financial Services Cluster Manager, Catriona Murphy, congratulated Sedicii, saying:
“Sedicii engaged with our cluster community from day one and as active members, they have showcased international networking benefits. This partnership will no doubt be followed by many more digital transformation solution successes for leader Rob Leslie and his resilient team.”
Sedicii currently have open engineering and development positions for people interested in a career move.
