In a statement, the companies said that the “alliance will enable identity assurance for markets including the sharing economy, peer-to-peer, and high-trust transactions.”
The partnership draws upon MorphoTrust’s government-class biometric and authentication portfolio and Confirm.io’s consumer-friendly mobile authentication and cloud technologies to deliver solutions that enable companies to ensure people are who they claim to be when conducting high-trust transactions.
MorphoTrust brings deep core competencies in biometric identification and document authentication, with experience and credibility in government identity programs, credentialing and ID programs including driver licenses and IDs of millions of people nationwide. Confirm.io enables safer interactions between people and businesses by linking physical ID documents with digital identities through the use of RESTful APIs and mobile SDKs.

We are committed to working with innovative companies that are interested in shaping the future of identity for mobile, online and in-person transactions where identity matters.”
