Mitek and JanusID Deliver Real-time Identity Verification to SMBs

September 25, 2018

SAN DIEGO and THE HAGUE, The Netherlands, Sept. 25, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Mitek (NASDAQ:MITK), a global leader in mobile capture and digital identity verification solutions, and JanusID, the Netherlands-based identity organization providing one-click secure website access, today announced a partnership to deliver a new, real-time, end-to-end identity verification online app, CheckedID. This new app is powered by Mitek’s Mobile Verify®, AI-based identity proofing, which enables small and medium sized businesses (SMB) to onboard customers and employees quickly and in compliance with EU regulations.

Mitek’s Mobile Verify assesses the authenticity of the identity document in real time, using advanced AI and machine learning algorithms to check for signs of forgery and tampering. Passports, ID cards, residence permits and driving licenses can all be processed quickly and reliably. In addition, the app uses Mitek MiSnap™ for fast, high-quality 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 (eMRTD) documents by scanning and reading the document’s embedded RFID chip using the device’s NFC reader.

The implementation of CheckedID for a new customer is quick and easy. It is fully customizable to suit each customer’s brand and business requirements. CheckedID’s 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, keeping consumer details safe.

“With Mobile Verify powering CheckedID, businesses now have a simple way to identify their customers without demanding that they photocopy and send passports through the mail, or go to a physical location,” said René Hendrikse, VP and Managing Director, EMEA, Mitek.

“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.”
