Sumsub creates online calculator for fraud losses
London-based identity verification vendor Sumsub has designed a tool to help betting platforms estimate potential fraud losses during the 2022 World Cup.
The customizable, artificial intelligence-based verification software features advanced KYC infrastructure capable of processing “nearly any number of users,” according to the company.
Writing in a blog, Sumsub says the tool would help bookmakers handle World Cup traffic spikes while also providing the highest level of fraud protection, particularly against arbitrage betting, multi-accounting, identity theft, account takeovers, money laundering and age violations.
“We know how important it is to quickly on-board customers, but we also understand that you need to be as compliant as possible to avoid fines,” says Jacob Sever, co-founder and chief of compliance at Sumsub.
Sumsub offers compliance tips specifically for the gambling industry, which they have collected for this sporting event. “We’re here to help betting platforms get ready for the biggest traffic surge in years,” says Sever.
The company was recently selected by digital wallet software maker Jeton to improve its remote onboarding experience with document verification and selfie biometrics.
Shufti integrating KYC in Kinguin marketplace
The move will enable Kinguin customers to verify their identity in real time using biometrics from Shufti Pro during their purchase.
According to a company announcement, the partnership will help Kinguin reduce fraud on purchases by implementing an extra layer of security on certain goods.
“Through this partnership, Kinguin will seamlessly on-board and authenticate the identity of their customers, fulfill requirements and scale the speed and accuracy of site-wide transactions,” says Victor Fredung, CEO of Shufti.
The customer win comes months after a similar one Shufti Pro entered with CSGOEmpire, an operator of a gambling site for character skins from the Counter-Strike: Global Offensive computer game.
iDenfy partners up with EcoD
iDenfy has entered a new collaboration with EcoD, a non-profit organization focusing on improving democratic politics.
The partnership will see applicants to the 10,000-strong ‘Citizens Jury’ on the EcoD platform complete the last step of the identity verification process using iDenfy’s ID verification tool.
In particular, the newly implemented solution will extract details from the government-issued document presented by applicants, automatically recognize the documents’ type and country, and then verify their validity.
“As a newly founded non-profit organization, European Capital of Democracy needed an affordable and secure solution,” explains ECoD CEO Stefan Sindelar.
“We’re grateful for iDenfy, a responsible company that helped us reach this goal. We now run a smooth ID verification procedure with a minimum personnel capacity to steer the process.”
iDenfy’s digital ID verification tools were also deployed earlier this month by BEEP.Rent to enable drivers to verify their identity.
Socure takes home two 2022 Finovate awards
The digital identity verification vendor announced that its KYC product won the Best RegTech Solution at the 2022 Finovate Awards. Additionally, the company’s founder and CEO, Johnny Ayers, was named executive of the year.
“It wasn’t long after we founded Socure that we began to solve problems many people believed were unsolvable,” Ayers says, including entirely accurate and inclusive identity verification and the eradication of fraud on the Internet.
According to Ayers, Socure software can verify any identity anywhere in the world.
The company has also recently upgraded its KYC product with greater security and transparency.
