ID document and facial verification app launched by IDMERIT
Identity verification solution provider IDMERIT has announced the launch of an app for next-generation consumer identity document authentication and verification.
IDMvalidate performs completely automated scans of government issued identity documents and checks of their graphical data and security features, and verifies the identity of the document holder with facial recognition and liveness detection.
“IDMERIT has the widest capture of legitimate and official data sources globally, making our identity bureau, IDMverify, the most comprehensive and effective at helping fight fraud,” said Tony Raval, CEO, IDMERIT. “However, authentication of the ID being presented is a critical part of the ID verification process. To date, ID authentication algorithms have been slow, error-prone, and involve manual intervention. IDMvalidate was designed to address all of those issues. This is now the best global ID authentication solution available on the market today.”
The app draws on a library of national ID sources from more than 90 countries, and it can process more than 20 languages including complex languages like Arabic, Kanji, and Korean, according to the announcement.
Digital ID verification companies have been busy lately, with Mitek making a series of announcements this year, Regula making the trade show rounds, and Acuant recently integrating its Assure ID with Experian’s CrossCore platform.
