Palo Alto, CA. (PRWEB) April 08, 2014
IdentityMind Global, an on-demand anti-fraud and risk management platform, and Jumio, the fast growing credentials management tech company, today announced a partnership to provide ecommerce retailers, financial institutions, and payment service providers (PSPs) with an integrated solution designed to minimize account fraud, reduce merchant risk, and provide financial institutions with Know Your Customer (KYC) capabilities to comply with Federal, Card Brands and Banks’ regulations.
Jumio’s Netverify turns a smartphone or computer into an ID scanning terminal that makes it fast and easy to capture and verify consumers’ credentials – a passport, driver license, ID card or utility bill in more than 100 countries worldwide – to meet KYC requirements and reduce fraud. Jumio’s Netverify is fully integrated into IdentityMind’s™ Anti-Fraud and Risk Management Platform.
“Identity verification is fundamental to the KYC process, especially when underwriting a merchant account or verifying international customers’ identities, foreign nationals and underbanked consumers,” said Daniel Mattes, Jumio’s CEO. “The combination of identity data from IdentityMind and Jumio’s credential verification technology provides a much more complete picture addressing the challenging question of whether the user creating an account is who they claim to be.”
Jumio’s integration to the IdentityMind ecosystem enhances the identity verification technologies and databases available to IdentityMind clients under the KYC, Anti-Money Laundering, and Merchant Risk products. The customer data contained in a government-issued document is validated for authenticity and can be used for sanction screening against OFAC, PEP, and other international lists. Furthermore the information contained in the document can enable querying against other public and private databases for ensuring that the consumers’ historical transactions and records are consistent and risk-free.
"Determining that individuals are who they say they are is a requirement for financial institutions. Traditionally financial institutions have accomplished this by asking customers to provide hard copies of documents, sometimes scanned, faxed, or presented in person – a process that is cumbersome and can take several days" said Garrett Gafke, IdentityMind Global’s CEO. "Modern business applications impose requirements for a faster and more automated verification of identities. Acquiring entities must underwrite merchant accounts with greater efficiencies and generally in real-time, just as Money Transmitters and Money Service Businesses, like Bitcoin exchanges have to provide KYC in real-time to offer consumers a competitive offering.”
Jumio’s NetVerify integration into IdentityMind’s Platform is available immediately for Acquiring Banks, Payment Service Providers (PSP/ISO/MSP,IPSP), Money Transmitters, Money Service Providers and Online Merchants.
