Mitek, JanusID partner on real-time identity verification app
Mitek and Netherlands-based digital identity provider JanusID partnered to develop a new, real-time, end-to-end identity verification online app. CheckedID is powered by Mitek’s Mobile Verify solution which enables SMB’s to quickly onboard customers and employees in compliance with EU regulations.
Mitek’s Mobile Verify uses advanced AI and machine learning algorithms to assess the authenticity of an identity document in real time. The app uses Mitek MiSnap for image capture and performs a liveness check with facial comparison of the selfie to the document’s portrait photo. For Android devices, the app also uses Mitek’s NFC capability to verify the authenticity of electronic machine-readable travel documents by scanning and reading the document’s embedded RFID chip using the device’s NFC reader.
According to the announcement, CheckedID is fully customizable to suit each customers’ brand and business requirements and its pay-as-you-go license arrangement allows businesses an affordable option to pay only for what they need to operate safely and in compliance with regulation.
The outcome of the verification workflow is delivered to customers in a secure, GDPR-compliant report, which can act as proof that the verification process has been thoroughly executed and meets regulatory requirements. All access to the service and data processing is safeguarded by banking-grade security.
“Enabling customers to safely provide verified personal data increases the level of trust for each party in online customer and employee onboarding. Trust, plus a high regard for privacy, is what businesses increasingly demand,” says Irwin Oedayrajsingh Varma, initiator and CEO, JanusID. “We are very happy to be partnering with Mitek, to ensure these benefits can be realised for all types of transactions, anywhere in the world.”
Mitek Chief Operating Officer Kalle Marsal recently spoke with Biometric Update about the rapid transformation of the digital identity verification market.
