Yes, 2nd generation ID authentication and fast-track onboarding technology is available and used by major players already.

Recent LexisNexis interview among nearly 200 UK compliance professionals say: “Britain's biggest banks are now spending as much as £660 million a year on anti-money laundering compliance, yet are still concerned about their ability to effectively combat risks in a fast-changing financial crime landscape”. The survey reports “concerns about a shortage of AML compliance professionals in the UK”. The LexisNexis report specifically highlights serious concerns that current practices may not suffice to manage the growing threat: “44% of banking and financial services professionals say evolving criminal methodologies will be the biggest single emerging financial crime risk to their business in the next year. Meanwhile, 13% think it will be a lack of personnel in their risk function”.


Banks and financial services providers are facing both fraud surge and (consequent) increasing regulatory pressure. AU10TIX market intelligence says that using smart technologies to help prevent fraud while facilitation streamlined customer service is inevitable. According to AU10TIX data, manual ID authentication practices are still prevalent, costing service providers with both severe customer abandonment and excessive back-office costs. In line with these market trends and concerns AU10TIX has announced recently a unique synthetic ID image forgery capability which is integrated in its BOS service. AU10TIX BOS is the market’s only 2nd generation online ID image authentication and onboarding platform.

“Banks and financial institutions are at the watershed point”, says Ron Atzmon, Managing Director of AU10TIX: “The fact that fraud, and especially ‘Fraudster Not Present’ fraud is booming is not new. What’s new is the availability of a new generation of solutions that can replace and augment the still common practice of manual handling. What did not happen in the past and does happen now is that service providers are now actively putting these solutions to action. AU10TIX is lucky to have the only 2nd generation ID authentication and onboarding technology ion the market today“.

“Yes, 2nd generation ID authentication and fast-track onboarding technology is available and used by major players already”, says Ofer Friedman, VP Marketing of AU10TIX: “However, there is battle haze that decision-makers have to cope with when looking for the right solution. 1st generation solution providers are making what often appears to be misleading claims about functionalities and performance. That is why we encourage decision makers to carry out comparative testing of AU10TIX BOS against any other solution they consider.“
