Identity proofing — trust is the foundation of good customer relationships

Criminals want to use stolen or fake identities to open accounts, but customers expect the applications process to be fast and easy. Digital identity proofing helps you to validate identity documents and verify that they belong to the person making the application. Protect your organization and offer customers a superior online or in-app experience to build trusted relationships from day one.
