    Another surveillance system out of Israel, eh? Quite the cottage industry these days..... A nice little backdoor built in for access by the Mossad, no doubt.

    Richard Farley came across as a douche. I would say “Richard, with all of your experience thank you for confirming that I’m onto something by making your offer. Your offer is however extortionate, and I’d rather keep the profits to myself, cheers!”

    The phrase 'arrogantly priced database' is not fair. Say what you want about that guy but he went on and sold the company for 38 million. He must've been doing something right. Source:

    So you scan a person's ID Driving license etc... kept in a database where it's on a network open to potential hackers... that could use that image data for fraud and ID theft. No thanks I'm Out!

  • Hi
    Hi 8 days ago

    Wow, this guy did well for himself-the company carried on until 2016 doing very well & at that point he sold it to GBG for around 40 million quid.

      APRICEPRODUCTION 8 days ago

      Really I'm surprised??? I guess he got out before the data protection act came in, today this would get thrown out... to much potential risk from hackers stealing information in the database for ID fraud and theft.

    It was a fast turnaround for FinovateEurope 2016 Best of Show winner IDScan Biometrics, a document authentication and facial recognition company. The London-based company today (June 29, 2016) announced it is being acquired by identity intelligence company GB Group.
    The companies anticipate the deal will close for $50 million (£37 million), with another $10.7 million (£8 million) contingent on reaching revenue and EBITDA targets 18 months after close. The deal is expected to add to GBG Group’s earnings per share in the first 12 months after the acquisition.
    IDScan brings more than 1,000 global clients to the table, including American Express, Barclays, and Gatwick Airport. GBG CEO Richard Law said, “GBG has followed IDscan Biometrics over the years and we have seen this business grow strongly, winning significant enterprise customers.”
