Namirial obtains PVID certification from ANSSI and confirms its ambitions in France

Montpellier, Senigallia – December 14, 2023

Namirial is pleased to announce that its Netheos solution has received the security approval of the Agence Nationale de la Sécurité des Systèmes d’Information (ANSSI) as a PVID provider certified to substantial level. This certification confirms the company’s position as European leader in trust services, and confirms its position in the French digital identity market.

In response to the steady increase in online subscriptions and the growing number of identity frauds, France is the first European country to regulate secure identity verification. This initiative is part of the drive to strengthen the fight against money laundering and terrorist financing (LCB-FT), to make customer data more reliable (KYC – Know Your Customer), and in line with the European eIDAS regulation and ETSI standards. With this in mind, ANSSI has established the PVID certification standard to secure identities managed by online service providers, particularly those most at risk, with banks, insurance companies, fintech and trust services alone now accounting for more than half of all remote identity checks. The PVID standard therefore requires technical, human and security resources to validate the authenticity of users’ biometric and documentary data by an operator. PVID-certified solutions guarantee online service providers the security of 100% remote identity verification solutions, providing the same value as face-to-face verification.

With its Netheos solution, the company sets itself apart among key accounts, particularly in the banking and insurance sectors, through the simplicity and speed of its user experience.
