ID-Pal, a leading identity verification provider, has announced it is formally entering the UK market following six years of exponential growth. The Dublin-based technology company supports businesses of all sizes in more than 30 sectors across Ireland, the US, the EU and the UK. Current clients include large enterprises such as Grant Thornton and Zurich International and SMEs such as UK Adviser and Trust My Travel. It was also the winner of Best Customer Facing Experience at the 2021 Pay360 Awards, and its most recent awards include Best Customer Facing Experience at the Pay360 Awards and IT & Fintech category winner at the Irish Times Innovation Awards 2022. 

The accelerated move online during the pandemic, paired with the recent growth in new legislation, including potentially conflicting regimes such as 6AMLD and GDPR, has made businesses and their customers particularly vulnerable to the reputational and monetary damage caused by financial crime. 

Led by Founder and Chief Executive Officer Colum Lyons, ID-Pal has developed a fully customisable solution for identity and address verification to protect businesses against these risks, available off-the-shelf or as an API/SDK. The GDPR-compliant solution is ISO 27001 certified and can be configured for any jurisdiction or legal requirement in any language in just minutes, offering more robust compliance that is adaptable to support SMEs and large, enterprise-scale firms. 

ID-Pal offers coverage of over 6000 ID documents across 200 countries and jurisdictions using a multi-layered approach that includes Biometric, Facial Matching, Liveness Testing, Address verification and Document checks. 

Colum Lyons, Founder and Chief Executive Officer, said: “The way in which identity verification has been done historically is just not sustainable in our digital-first mobile-ready world. Verifying identity documents manually is inefficient and insecure, and the risk of data flight and simple human error can make businesses vulnerable to fraud. Our unique blend of ID checks, all powered by a completely technology-first process, means multi-layered verification takes place on any ID document in real-time. Using AI and machine learning offers greater accuracy incorrectly classifying a document and reduces the margin for error and need for manual intervention. We’re looking forward to officially launching in the UK market and empowering more businesses with simple, secure, convenient identity verification for their business and their customers.”
