NEW YORK, NY– October 12, 2021 – Socure, the leading provider of digital identity verification and fraud solutions, today announced the launch of its public sector business led by identity industry veteran and public sector expert Matt Thompson, who was recently named to the newly created role of General Manager of Public Sector Solutions for Socure.
Socure enables government agencies to gauge whether an identity is real and belongs to the person applying for access to government benefits and services. Socure helps agencies modernize their approach to serving citizens, providing highly-accurate, fully-automated decisions on identity, significantly reducing or eliminating the need for manual reviews, while improving program integrity and protecting taxpayer dollars from fraud. This is critical as online government systems are heavily reliant on the ability to remotely and accurately verify the identities of citizens. However, as the pandemic drove a surge of U.S. residents online, many of those systems failed on a massive scale with 2020 identity fraud losses in unemployment alone totaling $400B.
“Many agencies lack the industry experience required to effectively manage identity verification and reduce fraud losses in the midst of accelerated digital transformation due to the pandemic. Furthermore, the gaps within legacy identity solutions were exposed leaving numerous eligible people waiting extended periods of time for their benefits while enabling fraudsters to manipulate these same benefits at an unprecedented level” said Thompson. “We are committed to solving this challenge for government agencies. With the broadest identity coverage available in the market for every population and group, Socure’s identity verification solution is unmatched in its ability to determine with confidence the validity of any identity online.”
Unrivaled Coverage and Accuracy Powered by the Most Comprehensive ID Graph in the Industry
Socure’s patented data ingestion and cleansing technology is paired with unsupervised ML clustering capabilities, enabling the company to analyze an unparalleled breadth and depth of data that goes beyond the industry status quo. The Socure identity resolution engine analyzes over eight billion records and more than 530 million good and bad identities to achieve the most accurate view of identity possible. Socure also evaluates streaming data, credit bureau history, utility data, telecom history, higher-education records, device data and 200+ other authoritative data sources to instantly establish the most accurate and comprehensive multi-dimensional view of any individual.
Socure’s solutions provide the broadest identity coverage available for all ages and demographics, including hard-to-verify citizens. The company’s identity verification and fraud platform ensures equity and inclusion in the assessment of identities for all individuals, including younger demographics, credit invisible consumers, new-to-country, and underrepresented groups.
Predictive Document and Identity Verification
For agencies requiring quick and accurate remote document verification, Socure’s predictive document verification quickly confirms the authenticity of any identity document in circulation, ownership of the phone, risk of the browser or device and NIST PAD Level 2 liveness detection within the selfie. Socure’s document verification goes far beyond simply matching the selfie to an authenticated government-issued ID by checking the validity of other identity elements on the ID such as name, date of birth, and address, and ensuring all elements belong to the person presenting the ID, as well as the risk associated with the device.
Key Benefits of Socure’s Identity Verification and Fraud Platform for Government Agencies:
- Approve more eligible individuals: Auto-verification rates of 98% across all ages and demographics
- Prevent more fraud: Auto-capture up to 90% of third-party and synthetic identity fraud for the riskiest transactions
