IDC MarketScape: Worldwide Know-Your-Customer Solutions in Financial Services 2018 Vendor Assessment

Analyst/Partner Collateral

This IDC study presents a 2018 vendor assessment of worldwide know-your-customer (KYC) technology providers using the IDC MarketScape model. This research quantitatively and qualitatively assesses multiple characteristics that help explain a vendor's success and position in the marketplace relative to its peers.

This IDC MarketScape covers vendors that provide KYC software to the worldwide financial services market. This evaluation is based on a standardized set of parameters from which IDC can produce a comparative analysis of KYC software vendors.

The technology vendors provided an in-depth assessment of their current capabilities and strategies, and their reference clients were interviewed to assess the vendor's ability to meet the financial institution's (FI's) strategic needs and current requirements. For the purposes of this study, IDC defines KYC as inclusive of complete customer onboarding including customer identification, customer due diligence (CDD) (including beneficial owner), enhanced customer due diligence, watchlist/sanction screening, and ongoing customer risk-based assessments.
