We provide ReadID in two different versions: SaaS and client-only. For the SaaS version, the client-side runs on the smartphone, sending the information being read to the server side, where it is read and verified. The server side is hosted by InnoValor in a public cloud: the SaaS version. Since ReadID is provided as SaaS, our customers do not have to worry about updates and security. ReadID SaaS is highly scalable.
The second version is the client-only version, where all functionality runs on the smartphone. For most customers, and especially for self-service onboarding use cases, the SaaS version is best suited since this is more resilient than the client-only version against compromised smartphones.
Client only solutions depend upon the security of the device. Smartphones can be tampered with if not under strict control of the company. Client only should not be used in remote use cases, only in controlled face-to-face situations.
