Fully integrated AML/KYC/Biometric solution
Ocular is an Anti- Money Laundering (AML) compliance platform that provides instant verification of a customer`s background (KYC). The platform leverages cryptographic security mechanisms employed in distributed ledger technologies to ensure that data cannot be tampered with, while allowing users full control over how their data is stored and shared. The system is user-friendly for applicants while adhering to strict AML policy guidelines.
Ocular integrates traditional name and personal data background checks with state-of-the-art identity verification mechanisms such as facial and voice recognition. This safeguards against ID theft, false registrations, Sybil attacks and other attacks which compromise and circumvent compliance. Ocular uses advanced technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning. This Ocular to dynamically monitor and upgrade its capabilities and defenses in the face of an ever-changing landscape of cyber security.
The objective of Ocular is to provide parties a transparent mechanism to verify and validate one another, to prevent fraud and expose fraudulent activities. Ocular aim to be the de-facto standard for multi purpose, highly customizable and configurable solutions that bridges traditional finance with crypto and satisfies compliance requirements at the highest possible levels.
The Ocular solution is the fastest way to achieve full AML compliance for your customers!
Regulatory Challenges - Governments, banks, and regulators worldwide require enhanced and ongoing verification of ”customers” and the “customers' customer.” Today, the process is cumbersome and time consuming - delaying the ability to conduct business.
Customer Acquisition (Sign-up) Companies have trouble following regulations and processing customers quickly. The result is a backlog of registrations. The companies must grind through a stack of regulations, or worse, ignore them altogether.
System Solutions to Market Challenges - Automatic and instant checks are conducted on OFAC (Office of Foreign Assets Control), Interpol, PEP (Politically Exposed Persons), and other criminal databases to confirm an applicant’s eligibility. Using proprietary facial and voice recognition technology, Ocular cross-references “selfie” images taken at registration with those on an identification document, eliminating fraud. ID verification involves the scanning and authentication of passports, driver's licenses, and national IDs for many countries. This verification filters out ID theft and false IDs.
