At the core of ZealiD is a belief that all global citizens in the future will have one or more digital certificates to represent their digital identity. With a digital certificate tied to a smartphone users can easily identify themselves, sign contracts and authenticate remotely.
Whereas Northern Europe has seen great success in certificate-based ID schemes, most of EU and the world’s citizens lack similar services. Physical contract signing and in-person registration for financial services is still the rule in the EU. Digitalization and Covid-19 pandemic means regulated industries are scrambling to solve remote identification, signing and strong authentication challenges.
With foresight the European Union created the eIDAS regulation that built on the foundation of qualified certificates and signatures. A qualified signature is valid in all member state courts, all public member state authorities and functions as remote identification to fight anti-money laundering.
ZealiD is Sweden’s first qualified trust service provider of qualified certificates and signatures (notified by PTS to the EU Trusted List). ZealiD is the first company globally to certify a machine based (non-video) remote registration process to persistent certificates with its ZealiD App.
ZealiD’s app brings digital identities to the masses by allowing over 450m citizens in the EU to remotely (no physical meetings needed) to create a personal qualified signature in less than 10 minutes.
ZealiD has offices in Stockholm, Vilnius and is opening a third office in Frankfurt in 2020. ZealiD is backed by some of Sweden’s foremost entrepreneurs and investors including J12 Ventures, Collector Bank, NFT Ventures, and Almi Invest.
