Government-issued identity documents such as driver’s licenses, passports, visas and national IDs, are often at the heart of identity vetting processes. Traditionally, organizations have relied on sophisticated on-premise solutions for global document authentication. As organizations evolve to multi-channel and geographically dispersed offerings, it is vital to access proven document authentication capabilities across multiple channels and devices.

Fake IDs - Easy to Obtain, Hard to Detect

Legitimate ID documents are constantly evolving with new standards and increasingly advanced security features. Illegitimate on-demand ID sellers are keeping pace with sophisticated, readily available fake IDs.

Top organizations need simplified customer journeys that balance fraud risk with a highly successful, self-service, remote customer experience. Maintaining that balance is particularly important as risks multiply across contact channels, transaction kinds and profile types, which can lead to costly fraud and compliance issues.
