SA Start-Up Axon Wireless Announces Its Partnership With LoginID. South African software startup Axon Wireless has announced that it has entered into a partnership with LoginID in order to integrate its FIDO-certified passwordless authentication into the Axon Wireless customer provisioning platform.

Axon Wireless currently supports Mobile Operators and banks across 10 countries, onboarding on average 3 million customers per month, with over 250 million identities registered with its Axon Face2Face registration software. Axon is also a supplier of biometric registration hardware devices to complement the Face2Face platform and provides an end-to-end solution to its customers, having provided over 50,000 devices and enabling over 20,000 field agents to perform their customer onboarding duties. The integration of FIDO for Mobile Operator agents helps eliminate vulnerabilities with traditional login and passwords, preventing account takeovers and other attack vectors.

Romeo Pestana, COO of Axon Wireless said in a statement, “This will be a first for MEA, Axon Wireless will utilize FIDO biometric security as a part of their digital onboarding services. LoginIDs SDKs make it simple to integrate and provide a highly scalable platform to support our current customer base, and growth into the future.” LoginID is a San Mateo/Toronto based company focused on bridging the gap around authenticating users and securing their information. This is facilitated through its FIDO2 and UAF certified strong customer authentication, privacy and tokenization platform.

Axon Wireless is a South African based company with R&D, technical support, marketing and sales teams based in South Africa, Nigeria, Ethiopia and Austria. Axon Wireless initially created the Axon Face2Face platform for SIM card and Mobile Wallet registration requirements in South Africa and today has grown into a respected Customer Onboarding and Biometrics partner to its many customers across Africa, Middle East and Asia.
