CEO Curtis Chan began his career in the gaming industry. He has successfully developed multiple mobile games, including a popular racing game with a record of more than 12 million downloads to date. Curtis shifted his focus from gaming to cybersecurity and identity management due to his long history of combating gaming fraud and hacker attacks. 

Along the journey, Alexander Chow (COO), Monika Ohashi (CIO), and Yves Segovia (CTO) joined the team. Although our core team consists of diverse members with various backgrounds and experiences, we all share the same vision and goal. This is why we didn’t heistate to move to Edinburgh in 2019 and establish Polydigi Tech.

After recently commercialising s-Factr™, we currently have multiple clients in the blockchain (financial services), gaming, and medical robotic service industry, etc. s-Factr™ is not only an effective 2fa solution that completely replaces SMS OTP, but it also eliminates OTP scams, pharming, and phishing once and for all.
