Kompliant, authID, Biometric Authentication Solutions, Verified, Identity Fraud, Digital Onboarding, Identity Verification Solution, Transaction Monitoring, Underwriting, Financial Institutions, Payment Processors, USAauthID, a provider of secure, mobile, biometric authentication solutions, announced today that Kompliant, a U.S.-based, AI-driven business onboarding and risk-scoring company, will integrate authID’s biometric authentication platform Verified™ to stop identity fraud and automate digital onboarding for its customers. Kompliant works with leading payment processors and sponsor banks and will deploy authID’s reliable, high-speed identity verification solution to streamline and secure online merchant application processing and transaction monitoring.

Solving end-to-end compliance lifecycle management by automating manual underwriting and monitoring processes for financial institutions, Kompliant needed an identity authentication partner to eliminate the risks associated with fraudulent merchant onboarding. The integration with authID’s Verified solution will enable Kompliant to deliver biometric identity verification during digital onboarding for its clients, including quick mobile identity document capture and authentication, liveness confirmation and presentation attack detection, and facial biometric matching of a selfie to the credential photo.

“Given the increased occurrence of cybersecurity threats on financial institutions and payments processors over the last few years, we recognized the acute need to offer our customers a fast, convenient, and highly secure identity verification solution,” said Edward Katzin, CEO of Kompliant. “authID’s cutting-edge biometric authentication platform proved to be the ideal solution, allowing our team to focus on our core mission of managing the compliance lifecycle for our customers.”

With the simplicity of a photo ID and mobile facial biometric identity proofing, Verified enables users to authenticate their identities anywhere, at any time. New users quickly capture their identity document and a live selfie in a web browser on any mobile device or desktop, and authID matches the selfie against the picture extracted from the identity document to verify that the user is who they say they are. For Kompliant, this empowers their customers to establish digital identity trust during the onboarding process with automated identity authentication.

“Banks, payment processors, and other financial institutions should be able to concentrate on driving revenue growth without compromising fraud prevention or regulatory compliance,” said Tom Thimot, CEO of authID. “Our Verified integration will allow Kompliant to meet its clients’ identity verification needs with best-in-class biometric technology. We are thrilled to join forces with Kompliant to offer secure merchant onboarding with speed, accuracy, and trust while ensuring user experience goes undisrupted.”

Kompliant recently raised $14 million in a seed round from Level One Fund, with contributions from John Partridge, former Visa president, and Stuart Sopp, CEO of Current, a U.S.-based consumer FinTech. Initially incubated by Snoop Dogg’s Casa Verde Capital, Kompliant announced that this funding would enable it to accelerate growth and scale its platform solutions.
