Keesing Documentchecker surpasses 6,000 global ID documents
Global identity verification provider Keesing Technologies has announced its Documentchecker boasts a database of over 6,000 ID documents from more than 200 countries and organizations, following the addition of Romanian and Rwandan national passports, and driver’s licenses and ID cards from two US states – Alaska and Indiana. Documentchecker now also includes the laissez-passer document issued by the African Development Bank (ADB).
Documentchecker delivers ID document verification to help organizations put an end to counterfeiting and combat fraud. This database is the core of Keesing’s digital ID verification solutions and it is updated on a weekly basis.
Keesing Technologies claims the results of biometric and automated verification checks are not always compliant with legal requirements or security standards, making detailed reference information allowing users to perform accurate and reliable ID checks indispensable.
The company collaborates with government agencies, embassies, consulates and central banks from around the world.
“Many of our customers who check ID documents on a daily basis occasionally fall back on manual verification processes using our reference database, whether or not integrated into our digital ID verification solutions,” says Daniel Suess, Commercial Director of Keesing Technologies. “Hundreds of countries issue thousands of ID documents, which all circulate concurrently. It is near enough impossible to be familiar with all these ID documents and their security features. And even if you are familiar with a given passport or driver’s license, it doesn’t necessarily mean you will recognize a forgery. That’s where Documentchecker comes in. It covers more ID documents than any other database in the world, and provides an unparalleled balance between remote identity proofing on the one hand and detailed ID document verification on the other.”
Founded in 1923, Keesing has been developing reference material for the authentication of secured documents and ever since. The company’s Counterfeits & Forgeries dates back to 1924, however digital and remote ID verification became a focus in the early nineties.
Last month, Keesing announced a new biometric onboarding solution to beta for remote customer ID verification with facial recognition. It is part of the AuthentiScan product suit.
