Jumio is taking a moment to recognize some of its most important partners on the global stage. To that end, the company has handed out its Partner of the Year Awards, which highlight the accomplishments of regional channel partners that have advanced the company’s efforts to provide customers with better (and compliant) identity verification and onboarding services.
Jumio selected both an Emerging Partner of the Year and a Strategic Partner of the Year in three different regions, for a total of six awards (the three regions are EMEA, the Americas, and Asia-Pacific). However, two of those six awards went to the same company, with Wipro picking up the Emerging Partner of the Year award in both the EMEA and Americas regions. Wipro specializes in cybercrime and fraud prevention, and is working with Jumio to facilitate the digital transformations of financial services providers.
4Stop and Okta were selected as Jumio’s Strategic Partners of the Year in EMEA and the Americas, respectively. The former offers single API integrations and draws on multiple international data sources to verify the identities of customers and mitigate risk. The latter, on the other hand, provides cloud services that help customers build secure biometric authentication into their own applications and web services.
Finally, ACA Pacific Technology and Netpoleon Solutions were the Strategic and Emerging winners in the APAC region. ACA Pacific provides business workflow solutions for organizations throughout Southeast Asia, while Netpoleon (and its Filipino NSPH division) acts as a value-added distributor of network security technologies.
“The year’s award winners include strategic partners that have gone above and beyond for customers during a very tumultuous year,” said Jumio CRO Dean Hickman-Smith. “Despite the challenges presented in 2020, these organizations have maintained an unwavering commitment to delivering outstanding levels of customer success and digital transformation, while continuing to drive sustainable excellence and growth.”
Jumio itself was recently selected as one of the world’s coolest providers of Identity and Data Protection technology. The company was also listed as a top 10 KYC Solutions provider in 2020, and its trophy shelf includes a 2020 Golden Bridge Award.
