“We are delighted to open the discussion about innovating the way financial institutions look at digital identity verification,” Madhu said. “Digital identity has become a cornerstone of interacting with consumers. As more accounts are born and primarily reside online, fraud prevention is paramount--yet market forces dictate that processes be intelligent and low-friction to serve current customers and onboard new ones quickly.”

Socure and its flagship ID+™ digital identify verification solution leverage the Socure Social Biometrics Platform for real-time authentication. ID+ helps institutions resolve identities and comply with regulatory requirements for KYC/CIP and AML/OFAC, providing validation of all dimensions of a consumer’s digital identity, enabling them to optimize manual reviews and sharply reduce online fraud.  ID+ delivers real-time intelligence that can be used in automated decisioning to increase conversion rates, for fraud mitigation to reduce losses and improve false positives, and to meet regulatory requirements.

In addition, Socure recently became the first digital identity verification solution in the market with a completed SOC 2 report, an internationally recognized auditing standard created by The American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA). Socure’s compliance with SOC 2 Type 1 ensures that Socure is ready to meet the stringent governance and compliance constraints of financial institutions worldwide, more quickly and with faster and with greater accuracy than previously possible.
