Identity Verification

Make informed decisions quicker, comply with regulation, by ensuring your customers are genuine.


Our identity verification looks beyond the direct evidence of fraud or misrepresentation to connect accounts, people and devices that might seem unrelated. This helps you spot suspicious behaviour or anomalies and prevent fraud from sources that otherwise appear genuine.

Aiding Know Your Customer (KYC) and Anti-Money Laundering (AML) regulation, our identity verification products are designed to help you make complex decisions quickly and accurately, freeing up your energy to focus on your core business.

Easily add the process into your existing system or use our web-based interface to improve or maintain your customer service with fully customised parameters, depending on your requirements.
