Identity verification tech firm set for international expansion with launch of US office

Biometric authentication technology firm iProov has expanded its international footprint with the opening of a North American headquarters.

iProov has launched a new office at the bwtech@UMBC Research and Technology Park in Catonsville in Maryland, from which the firm will serve its growing US client base.

The business, which specialises in biometric authentication through existing smartphone and device technology, has secured contracts with the likes of the UK Home Office and the US Department of Homeland Security (DHS), and has increased revenues tenfold and more than doubling its headcount since 2018.

Founder of iProov, Andrew Bud, explained: “Not only will we enjoy close proximity to our government customers, but we will also be able to more easily leverage Maryland’s outstanding resources – in the form of nearby intellectual capital, tech talent, and the vibrant cybersecurity community associated with the bwtech@UMBC Technology Park.

“Our new location and our new executive hires are setting the stage for iProov’s next phase of rapid growth, and we’re excited about the way forward.”

UK Secretary of State for International Trade, Liz Truss, added: “Cybersecurity is a global issue. UK businesses are continuing to innovate, lead the sector and identify the solutions that will achieve global impact.

“iProov’s US expansion is evidence of the growing global demand for UK innovation. I’m delighted that my department has supported iProov’s scale-up as we work towards striking a trade deal with our partner across the pond.”
