New virtual banks like Standard Chartered Bank’s Mox in Hong Kong are also using Daon’s technology and are currently live in production.

Based in Singapore, Sehgal is an industry veteran with more than twenty years of experience in cybersecurity, including many years at IBM, where he led the identity and access management software business for APAC.
