Toppan and D-ID Sign Strategic Partnership Agreement


Partnership to exceed sales of $9 million over two years and bring advanced identity protection with facial de-identification technologies to Japanese market.

D-ID, a leader in identity privacy protection software, today announced a strategic partnership with Toppan Printing (Toppan), a global printing company and innovator in security solutions, to provide D-ID’s technology to customers across Japan and Asia. With this partnership, the companies expect to exceed sales of over one billion yen (US$9.1 million) within two years in Toppan’s focus markets of Japan and ASEAN countries. The combined offering will enhance privacy protection for customers in industry verticals such as smart cities, tourism and travel, human resources, healthcare, finance, and more.

Founded in 2017 by veterans of the Israel Defense Forces Intelligence Corps’ elite 8200 unit, D-ID created the first facial image de-identification solution that protects user privacy against facial recognition software.

D-ID allows organizations to enhance security and ensure the privacy of their customers and employees with state-of-the-art technology that protects sensitive biometric information in facial images and videos.

With advanced image processing and deep learning techniques, D-ID’s De-Identification solutions can resynthesize any given photo in a way that enables humans to recognize it but prevents facial recognition engines from identifying it with biometric scanning tools.

D-ID also offers Smart Anonymization tools to replace facial images with AI-generated faces in videos and still images, allowing organizations to apply advanced analytics and monetize video data, while still meeting strict privacy regulations.
