Jumio has partnered with iProov in an effort to speed up its onboarding procedures and improve its liveness detection capabilities. To that end, the company has now integrated iProov’s Liveness Assurance and Genuine Presence Assurance into its own Jumio KYX remote onboarding solution.
Liveness detection technology helps prevent fraud because it ensures that a real person is present for each interaction, and ensures that cybercriminals cannot use photos or deepfakes to spoof a legitimate customer. Jumio indicated that adding iProov’s solution to its offerings would give the company more flexibility moving forward and allow Jumio to capitalize on the new opportunities that emerge as more organizations proceed with their digital transformations.
“With iProov, we can offer our customers the highest levels of security for online identity verification, without compromising the user experience,“ said Jumio CEO Robert Prigge. “iProov equips us with a simple, effective and powerful fraud deterrent that is trusted by a growing number of global banks, government bodies and digitally native enterprises.”
The advantages of iProov’s solution include its high accuracy and the small computational footprint of its SDK. The low false rejection rate also ensures that genuine customers are more likely to be approved, which translates to a better user experience. iProov’s technology has cleared both the first and second levels of the iBeta Presentation Attack Detection test.
“We’re excited to partner with Jumio to deliver our world-class presence assurance solutions to its global customer base,” added iProov Founder and CEO Andrew Bud. “The drive toward digital transformation, ease-of-use and bank-grade security demands liveness detection experiences that are simple, secure and inclusive of aging populations.”
iProov’s current customer roster features a number of high-profile government agencies, including the Australian Taxation Office, GovTech Singapore, and the US Department of Homeland Security. Jumio, meanwhile, recently brought in $150 million in its latest round of funding, and took gold at the 2021 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards.
