From retail to healthcare, enterprises seek to validate identities in real time. With the emergence of mobile and the continued push by payments as an activity into the digital realm, companies must balance customer service and security.
Identity verification company Trulioo just launched a new ID document verification solution to its platform that adds an additional layer of authentication by leveraging facial comparison technology.
Trulioo’s GlobalGateway solutions are able to perform frictionless identity verification for 4 billion people in over 60 countries via more than 200 data sources.
Through a partnership with Mitek, a global leader in mobile capture and identity verification software, Trulioo’s API is now able to collect, analyze and authenticate 3,500 different kinds of identification — including passports, drivers licenses and other identity cards from nearly every country.
“Identity document verification with facial comparison enables an additional factor of authentication for high-value transactions,” said Stephen Ufford, CEO of Trulioo. “This new partnership with Mitek ensures our clients continue to have instant access to powerful tools for their fraud prevention and compliance systems.”
Trulioo’s combination of eIDV and ID document verification enables organizations to find a balance between easy onboarding and compliance with anti-money laundering and know-your-customer requirements. Now, users are able to take a selfie, which is then compared to the photograph on an ID document.
“We are pleased to collaborate with Trulioo to provide the industry with a comprehensive ID verification solution that combines both our companies’ expertise for today’s digital era,” said Sarah Clark, general manager, Identity Solutions at Mitek.
