The Acquisition

Berbix was founded in 2018 by former members of the Airbnb Trust and Safety team to redefine best-in-class document verification. Their solution incorporated a powerful forensics and hyper accurate data extract engine, with an emphasis on both the human and machine-readable components of an ID (OCRs, MRZs, barcodes), resulting in unmatched accuracy, unparalleled user experience, and the lowest number of false rejects on the market. And this was achieved exclusively with provided documents and user selfies without looking at external data sources.

Launching its Document Verification in 2019, Socure built a best-in-class capture experience and paired that with predictive fraud analytics models that leveraged its identity graph, PII, and device-related data to become the first fraud and risk predictive document verification solution in the market.

Now Socure's Document Verification 3.0 cleanly integrates the Berbix forensics engine with Socure's capture experience and predictive capabilities, resulting in a document verification solution that leads the market in true accepts, true rejects, fraud capture, and speed.

What is Predictive Document Verification?

Predictive Document Verification (DocV) verifies a customer’s government-issued ID, such as a driver’s license, passport, or photo ID card, against their facial biometrics, approving more good customers while eliminating bad actors in real time. The superior capture experience, powerful forensic engine and hyper accurate data extraction drastically increases confidence that you’re checking a valid identity.

When this powerful capability of validating a government-issued photo ID is paired with predictive risk signals from the world’s most comprehensive identity graph, the result is a solution that changes the state-of-the-art of identity verification. With the fastest, most accurate, and most conclusive results, you can feel confident onboarding, verifying and reverifying your users.
