Står IDEX foran sitt gjennombrudd nå?

Did you know ... IDEX Biometrics are one of only two suppliers to offer off-chip capacitive fingerprint sensors and the only supplier using this technology with the preferred ridge matching biometric algorithm.

IDEX Biometrics has operations in Europe, US, Korea, China and Taiwan and we've built partnerships with many of the biggest names in the industry.

Det har kostet tid og vanvittig mye penger, men verden ligger til rette for at 2020 er året for at IDEX sin teknologi skal slå til.

Lykke til 👍

Overveldende mye positivt som har skjedd og som skjer i IDEX akkurat nå - og flere nyheter ventes i q4.
(Dette er vel en av hovedårsakene til at reserven har sluttet å synge konkurs sangen og flyttet sin short over til ZWIPE også). 😂

Nå som emitrollene er ryddet unna for en god stund kan jeg minne om flere triggere som ligger foran oss:

- The expense reductions are expected to result in a 30% reduction in annualized operating expense. The actions are expected to be largely completed in the fourth quarter of 2019.
The expense reductions are expected to lower IDEX’s break-even shipments point by more than 50% and the company will be able to achieve operating break-even at significantly lower shipment levels.

- IDEX begins deliveries of its dual-interface sensor to world class electronics manufacturer.
As part of this multimillion-dollar commitment IDEX is supplying its dual-interface sensors to one of the world’s largest electronics manufacturing service companies in order to qualify their manufacturing process; a critical step in any ramp-up process.
We now expect a regular flow of purchase orders from this customer and look forward to being an integral part of the rollout of their enhanced biometric security solutions.

- Expect multiple card integrators to be certified in Q4.

- IDEX’s biometric solutions selected for additional access control cards by two Asian customers with shipments anticipated in H1 2020.

Ja, så må vi heller ikke glemme at de fleste av alle de største aktørene i dette markedet, samt analyser som går helt tilbake til 2015 viser at det er forventet at dette markedet skal ta av fullstendig til neste år.

More to come.

For første gang lo jeg av et innlegg fra deg Møy. Om ikke annet så har det skjedd et gjennombrudd der ihverttfall 🙃

Future of payments will be in your fingertips, says Mastercard's cyber chief.

Ajay Bhalla is in the business of predicting the future. His mission for the last four years has been almost inconceivable: to guarantee the security of over 70 billion transactions processed every year.

But sitting in his minimalist white-painted office in Canary Wharf, Mastercard's 52-year-old global head of cybersecurity looks anything but stressed. The tall, lanky executive - who sports an impressive moustache - is soft-spoken and quick to smile. After all, most of the heavy lifting is being done by artificial intelligence.

New technology built by Bhalla’s team is able to predict when fraudsters will try to steal someone’s credit card details and alert the bank in advance so that transactions can be blocked.

“We are getting into predicting what card number could get compromised in future,” he explains. “We have solutions for early detection now which advise a bank in advance, saying that we believe based on the statistics and data that we have seen that these cards are going to present a problem. It’s being used by banks globally.”

Mastercard's obsessive drive to stop hackers in their tracks with predictive technology has already produced results, he claims.

“It has to date stopped $5bn in fraud, not to mention the amount of consumer pain which could have happened,” says Bhalla.

The company's objective is to develop a system so impermeable that hackers simply can’t figure out how to break into - something that Bhalla has worked on since he took on the role in 2014.

This hasn’t always worked. Take the Equifax data breach for example, when over 200,000 customers’ Visa and Mastercard details were leaked. Both companies were forced to issue confidential warnings to banks to avoid large-scale fraud.

However, Mastercard itself has managed to avoid becoming a victim of malicious hackers looking to steal money and data. This is because its AI provides layers of security, not just one firewall, and is able to remotely identify and plug up potential security gaps from devices such as smartphones or internet of things powered devices, says Bhalla.

Unlike many other security heads, Bhalla does not believe in investing heavily in ethical hackers to test a network. In fact in his world, they are rather passé. “Trying to attack your own system is actually old,” Bhalla quips.

Bhalla comes across as more of a technology expert than a security buff. The Mastercard veteran has worked around the world, spending eight years in Singapore - "the golf courses are magnificent"- and now a stone’s throw away from Citibank and Lloyds in London, in a role that he says finally pricked the interest of his two children.

“In the early years they used to think this [Mastercard] is all about security,” he chuckles. “Now, they look forward to the next technology coming out too.”

His prediction is that the future of financial services will be in AI and securing payments with biometric technology, using fingerprint and face scanners.

The latter is something that Mastercard is investing heavily in. Late last year, Bhalla’s company entered into a partnership with Microsoft to develop a “digital identity”, the online equivalent of a passport that would allow people to verify who they are on email, social media and Government services.

This ID could replace several documents including driving licences, passports or national insurance numbers.

“We were the pioneers of introducing biometrics,” Bhalla says. “People were saying 'biometrics has not been done, you will get it wrong' - but we said: 'no, consumer experience is key. That’s what the consumer wants.'”

In fact, the launch has had mixed reviews. It was branded “the biggest threat to our privacy yet” by critics, who are concerned about the increase of personal information that private companies could wield.

These are “quick interpretations” of what is actually on offer, Bhalla argues. “Digital ID is about giving consumer control over his or her data. It verifies the person when they are doing an online transaction without creating any pain points,” he says.

“The technology behind the scenes is looking at what transactions you have done before, is this a normal transaction… We don’t know your personal details but we know the transactions on the card number.”

Depending on what this technology says, people will be asked to provide biometrics or not.

“It verifies the person when they are doing an online transaction, without creating any pain points. Research globally has proven that the minute you add any pain point, consumers either leave the basket or shopping and they will get off the site.”

The UK has yet to launch a widespread digital ID scheme of its own, although Margot James, the digital minister, has previously said she is in favour of electronic IDs that could speed up public services online. Bhalla believes it's only a matter of time before every country invests in some form of this technology.

“I think in Europe you will see a very fast move to biometrics, just because of regulation and authentication. In other parts of the world it might be slower, but overall globally it’s a huge opportunity for us,” Bhalla says. “I think in the next five years we will see majority of transactions move to biometrics.”

In fact, Mastercard’s biometric technology will soon be used by millions of people in April 2019, as banks roll out payments online and in store that can be approved by customers’ fingerprints or pictures of their faces, rather than a pin number or password verifications.

His team is also planning to release technology to check identities faster and stop false credit card declines, a huge problem for the financial services sector as they struggle to differentiate real transactions from fraudulent ones.

According to UK Finance’s latest figures, banks managed to stop £2 out of every £3 pounds of unauthorised fraud in 2017, but the scale of fraud is still high: it caused £732m in losses.

The efforts to block fraud has caused headaches for customers - and by extension, to Mastercard. Bhalla points to some markets in the world that suffer almost 50pc of declines every time they use a card.

“The bank will now know that it’s actually you doing the transaction,” he says of this technology. “This will be a big thing for the whole world because digital fraud is a big problem now, as 74pc of fraud comes out of 'card not present' [online] transactions.”

The important thing isn’t the shiny tech, he maintains, but the customers behind it. “Often we end up in this loop where a lot of technology is created, especially in the security space... but it becomes more complicated for the consumer.”

He adds: “It’s a waste of time doing technology for the sake of technology. All of these technologies should serve this end goal: to help the consumer.”

(Fingerprints are like snowflakes: no two are alike. The arches, loops and whorls in the skin create complex and unique patterns which can be used to accurately identify us.

It is technically possible for two people to have identical fingerprints or for two snowflakes to form the same pattern – it’s just infinitesimally unlikely.

There are several ways to read a fingerprint, including optical sensors that simply photograph the fingertip and capacitance sensors which use electrical signals to plot the ridges and troughs of the pattern. Most affordable fingerprint scanners use the latter and there are ways to fool them. Initial vulnerabilities were found in Apple's Touch ID system just one day after launch when hackers photographed a print left on the glass screen of the phone with a cheap domestic scanner and used that image to gain entry to the phone.

It’s easy to imagine that method being used by spy agencies or those dabbling in a spot of lucrative corporate espionage, but less so by a common thief who nabs your phone on the train and wants to get his hands on your online banking app.

In truth, any security can be circumvented. To be successful, it just needs to be tough enough so as to be unprofitable to bother. For most people, currently, fingerprint scanners tick this box. There is the advantage with a PIN that if it's compromised it can be easily changed – not so easy with fingerprints - but if your handset is stolen you can remotely wipe the contents while any potential data thief is still waiting for the wood glue to dry. In most cases, for most people, fingerprint scanners will be more secure than a PIN).

Hvorfor mobbe meg, og hvorfor skal en skrive lange avhandlinger om ingen ting? Nå har jeg ikke vært på nett på mange dager, bare et par korte ganger. Finansavisen er jo blitt så vanskelig å få logget seg på, joda en kan komme på og lese, men det har også blitt kritisert.
Hvis en ikke sitter stand by, blir en utestengt når en skal inn neste gang, og det er umulig å
komme inn så en kan få svart på noe. Det er jo fustrerende hver gang, og vet ikke hvor mye tid jeg har brukt på å logge meg på. Det oppleves som et under hver gang jeg kommer inn.
Var dette langt nok?

Fordi du - til tross for at flere andre, til og med Sente, ber deg la være - mest skriver INGEN TING som:

• Vet ingen ting
• Hvem vet
• Vet ikke
• Kan ikke noe

Hvis du, jeg, eller noen andre, skriver "ikke sett noe", noen av de andre punktene over, eller tilsvarende, er det for alle andre 100% uinteressant. Det som er interessant er informasjon, IKKE at en ikke har noen informasjon.

Hvorfor har du ikke benyttet muligheten til å tjene penger selv på oppgang og nedgang i IDEX?
03.12.2019 kl 14:09 843

Jeg forstår deg veldig godt. Jeg har tapt mye på magefølelse, og jeg har tjent mye på magefølelse. Saken er det at man aldri vet hva agendaen til noen på et forum er. Jeg for min del bryr meg ikke om noen tror på julenissen eller ikke. Alle må få lov til å tjene eller tape penger på de valgene de tar. Om noen skriver at aksjen skal opp 200% i løpet av 1 mnd opptar min oppmerksomhet like lite som om noen skriver at prognosen er -200%.

Jeg vet ikke hvem som gjemmer seg back et "nick", kan være en 19 åring som har investert i sin første aksje og tror at han skal ta en Spetalen med sine 30.000 kr som han/hun hadde gjemt bort siden sin konfirmasjon.

Det jeg liker er konstruktive diskusjoner, verken opphaussing eller "nedhaussing" det er nå meg og mitt, jeg kan styre hva folk skriver her like mye som jeg kan styre disse forbanna aksjekursene, men jeg kan alltid komme med noen ekspert"tips" slik de gjør i avisene om hva som burde forventes....

HO er et diskusjonsforum, ikke et forum for kjeltringer og banditter som med forbanna dikt og løgn, mener at det er legitimt å prøve å lure andre til å kjøpe opp kursen så de selv kan tjene penger på det.

Nja, det er ikke helt uvesentlig hvis du er av den oppfatning av at man kan tjene penger på å snakke opp en kurs. Det betyr i grunn at man kan gjøre det samme den andre veien og det er her du ofte kommer inn i bildet, så det er forståelig at man tenker du er short. Du ser den? Når det er sagt så har du tidligere historikk i IDEX på din side.

Ikke én eneste positiv ting med IDEX, bortsett i fra muligheten til å tjene på betydelige kurssvingninger.

Så teknologien (som nå også partnere bekrefter er enestående), posisjon blandt partnere som er i det absolutte toppsjiktet i verden og et marked i sterk vekst nå og fremover er helt ubetydelig? Jaja, dum som jeg er så er jeg all in 😊

I 23 år har IDEX og partnere bekreftet at IDEX teknologien er enestående.
Hva gir "enestående teknologi" hvis det ikke er et marked for den?

IDEX har til og med vunnet internasjonale teknologipriser.
Hvor mange kroner i nettofortjeneste har det gitt?

Det er ingen som vinner argumentasjonen på slike forum. Alle har en agenda,mens enkelte bruker det som sin personlige blogg. Det mest fruktbare er å dele synspunkter, informasjon og argumenter på tvers av andres holdninger. Forsøk å se det som verdifulle innspill, eller overse det.
