Mobbeel’s CEO & Co-Founder, José Luis Huertas, told ViaNews that “the Cybersecurity industry is becoming crucial, taking into account that new sectors are emerging every day increasingly demanding technological solutions to better Know Your Customer (KYC) and avoid fraud. Biometric authentication offers an extra security layer that increases security in companies’ processes, achieves compliance benefits, improves clients loyalty and reduces operating costs.”

The Web Summit selected them as an Alpha company which, according to the Web Summit definition, means they are in the “pre-investment stage or has under $1 million in funding.”

“Our goal is going far beyond the minimum conditions imposed by regulators, innovating and providing new technological solutions for a new era where the client is the key.”

The Mobbeel team explained to us that their company allows businesses to “identify and verify customers in a comfortable and safe way”. With Mobbeel, “you are the key”, they replied, and what their unique value proposition is having a highly specialized and experienced team in providing biometric solutions, developing their own software from the ground up and being flexible when it comes to adapting our solutions to our customers technical and business needs.

Mobbeel’s CMO, Rafael Campillo, talked to ViaNews about them being “pioneers in biometric recognition technology for mobile devices without the need for specific hardware, we have evolved to supply a full suite of technological products that let on verify customers’ real-world identities and this evolution has been possible thanks to a passionate team that works and innovates every day in order to achieve excellence.”

Mobbeel’s Computer Vision Engineer, Alvaro Hernández, told ViaNews about their company’s mantra: VAPT (Validity, Authenticity, Property and Traceability). According to Alvaro Hernández, “a new concept for a new era where a Digital Onboarding process must meet the following 4 pillars: Validity, because the ID card must be automatically detected and classified to carry on the registration process. Authenticity, because the ID card used in the registry has to be original. Property, in order to identify the ID card owner and Traceability, because the overall process must be documented.”

Mobbeel is headquartered in Cáceres, a city in western Spain’s Extremadura region but their CEO revealed that the company “has a global reach”.
