Jumio biometric identity verification fully integrated with Nok Nok S3 Suite for account recovery
The Nok Nok S3 Suite is integrated with Jumio’s identity verification technologies to allow customers to avoid difficult, time-consuming integrations to provide account recovery for the tens of millions of smartphones that are lost or stolen each year, according to the announcement. The platform from Nok Nok Labs supports different account recovery methods, so customers can configure named policies for using Jumio Identity Verification among one or more requirements. Policies can be flexible to enable combinations of recovery methods and the policy can be dynamically chosen based on other risk factors.
“Jumio is delighted to partner with Nok Nok in order to offer customers the ability to recover their account when they change devices,” says Stephen Kearney, Jumio head of worldwide partnerships. “Jumio’s ID and Identity Verification services allow users to prove their identity easily and securely recover their ability to authenticate on the new device. Nok Nok Labs has created a unique and innovative solution to address account recovery issues.”
Nok Nok Labs originally launched its strong account recovery capability supported by Jumio’s facial biometrics in November as part of the S3 Suite.
“Strong authentication needs strong recovery as well as a policy-based approach that allows for different combinations of recovery methods,” notes Santosh Rajvaidya, director of product management at Nok Nok Labs. “We are pleased to be able to offer customers even more choice in their authentication and recovery methodology as the Nok Nok S3 Suite now integrates with Jumio’s Identity Verification solution.”
