Share Article

Organizations can now perform highly specialized FCRA compliant background screening via CANDA’s Fresh Haystack Enterprise Risk Management platform and ESR’s award-winning technology featuring their ESR Assured Compliance® program ensuring speed and accuracy throughout the process.

CANDA and ESR today announced the availability of an integration between CANDA’s Fresh Haystack platform with ESR’s global background screening capabilities that will give clients a broad portfolio of options and know-how for advanced background checks for sensitive positions or programs. This allows companies to enrich their onboarding process with ESR global background screening, a strategic choice for employers who demand accuracy and compliance in their background screening programs. ESR is the only company providing real-time compliance with local, state and federal (FCRA) laws. ESR’s robust technology also reduces turnaround times.

Adding ESR’s comprehensive background screening into the Fresh Haystack ecosystem further empowers CANDA’s innovative AI (Artificial Intelligence) RIDE (Risk Integration & Decision Engine) technology which allows our customers to profit from true integrated risk management and data driven decision making. CANDA and ESR’s approach supports Gartner’s latest research “Prepare for Insider Threats by Building Trigger Scenarios” by Jonathan Care, Sr. Director Analyst and his recommendation to “increase visibility via employee-monitoring and surveillance capabilities, especially for sensitive access to the organization’s critical data”.

As the value of U.S. Federal Government and Corporate Intellectual Property (IP), reputation, brand, and national interests increase in value, organizations will have to leverage new, cutting edge security technologies and integrations to increase protection from inside and outside threats.

“This partnership provides a one-stop-shop for innovative, compliant onboarding, and shortening the cycle by removing manual steps and enabling hyperautomation”, said Andrew Razumovsky, Principal at CANDA Solutions. “This capability provides our joint customers the opportunity to use our screening services in a way that has never been available in the past”, said Brad Landin, President and Chief Compliance Officer at ESR.
