Continued hypergrowth, major new features, and new partners furthered global biometric cybersecurity momentum

Our partner network and the entire FaceTec team did a tremendous job last year, and we’re thrilled to see the momentum continue. So far, this year's performance looks like it will far exceed 2022's.

FaceTec, Inc. has announced exceptional 2022 Q4 and year-end results, further establishing its global leadership in 3D face verification software.

2022 YoY & Q4 highlights include:

  • 106% YoY revenue growth
  • 94% YoY 3D Liveness Check usage growth
  • Free Photo ID Scan (with & without 3D Liveness Check) feature released
  • Two new US & international patents issued, bringing the total to 20
  • Passed extensive Video Injection Penetration Tests by European biometrics lab
  • 320M+ Age Estimates/Checks done in 2022
  • FaceTec’s AI is now performing well over one billion 3D Liveness Checks annually

FaceTec signed a dozen new commercial agreements in Q4 and added several more influential partners, along with extending the agreement with its largest customer.

Unlike biometric service providers, FaceTec licenses stand-alone software that runs locally on its customers’ server/cloud. This production architecture does not require any personally identifiable data from end-users ever be sent to FaceTec, protecting privacy and allowing organizations to comply with ever-evolving data privacy regulations such as BIPA, CCPA, and GDPR.

New IDV/KYC functionality enhanced FaceTec’s SDKs in Q4, including free Photo ID Scans for over 1,400 ID documents (demo video here), dramatically reducing the cost of onboarding new users when compared to typical IDV vendor fees. Now, nearly 100 FaceTec distribution partners can provide their customers with unlimited access to free OCR for photo IDs, free barcode reading, free NFC chip scanning, free 2D Liveness checks, free 2D and 3D face matching, and free 1-to-N scans for duplicate faces. The new features provide an even greater value proposition for the already hugely successful software suite, and FaceTec still doesn’t charge setup or support fees. The only function that FaceTec invoices for is the 3D Liveness Checks performed by end-users; nothing else.

"Now that we are providing more than one billion 3D Liveness Checks annually and are extremely profitable, I’m eager to see how much of the document verification market our channel can capture with the addition of these free IDV/KYC features to our software suite," said Kevin Alan Tussy, FaceTec CEO. "Our partner network and the entire FaceTec team did a tremendous job last year, and we’re thrilled to see the momentum continue. So far, this year's performance looks like it will far exceed 2022's."
