Trustopia chooses Acuant platform for remote biometric onboarding and authentication
Trustopia has chosen Acuant’s Trusted Identity Platform for user identity verification to deliver seamless and secure remote biometric onboarding and authentication in its people screening ecosystem, the company announced.
“We are delighted to be partnering with Acuant. Their best-in-class technology combined with Trustopia’s brilliantly simple platform and industry expertise is a powerful combination that will disrupt and change the background checking and screening market,” said Trustopia Chief Operating Officer Paul Moore in a prepared statement.
As regulations can be different in each industry and region, employee screening can be a challenge for companies trying to confirm employee identity. Screening should verify information such as right to work, criminal records, credit checks and driver status checks, within legal and ethical limits. Acuant offers its platform for both on-premise and remote onboarding and verification.
Trustopia will implement Acuant IDscan, AssureID and FaceID for seamless omnichannel multi-factor authentication. The process is simple and takes less than 20 seconds: the user’s government ID is compared to a selfie taken with a liveness test. Encryption to and from the cloud keeps personally identifiable information private.
Both Trustopia’s and Acuant’s platforms have integrated AI with machine learning technology to enable workflow automation.
“Through our partnership with Trustopia we are helping businesses make better, faster, safer screening decisions,” said Yossi Zekri, President and CEO of Acuant, in the statement. “Trustopia is innovating the people screening space and bringing together the best technologies to effortlessly automate and manage all screening requirements in one simple interface. We are extremely pleased to help execute this vision.”
In March, Acuant finalized its acquisition of IdentityMind, to combine its Trusted Identity Platform with IdentityMind’s orchestration layer to expand its reach across the full identity lifecycle.
