Onfido and Ubisecure Announce Partnership to Expand Uptake of AI-based Identity Verification

New technology alliance brings Onfido’s AI-based document verification and facial biometrics to Ubisecure customers

LONDON–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Onfido, the global identity verification provider, today announced a strategic partnership with Ubisecure, a digital identity solutions leader to enable Onfido’s identity verification technology for Ubisecure customers’ digital identity solutions.

Ubisecure provides digital identity management APIs to organisations seeking to enhance online service UX and security. An integral part of this process is the authentication of users and their rights to access systems, with many identity provider and authentication options available for service providers to choose from. Ubisecure enables easy integration of these options via its Authentication Adapter microservice, catering for all manner of customer requirements based on data sensitivity and local/industry regulations.

Onfido verifies the users of over 1,500 companies. Applicants simply take a selfie and a photo of their government-issued identity document; Onfido first checks that the ID seems genuine, and then matches it to the user’s face. This ensures the person presenting the identity is its legitimate owner, and is physically present. The technology covers over 4,500 document types across 195 countries.

This new technology partnership provides a combined solution stack for customers, whereby Onfido will effortlessly and securely verify a user identity at the onboarding stage, with Ubisecure’s technology enabling seamless ongoing management of that identity.

“Our technology is now being leveraged by a growing number of global companies for online identity verification,” said Husayn Kassai, CEO and Cofounder at Onfido. “Ubisecure will be a key ally in expanding that reach even further and exploring new use cases, with their prominent and varied customer base.”

“Service providers should not have to compromise on user experience in aid of security – Onfido’s biometric tech is one such authentication example with the best of both worlds,” said Jonathan Clark, VP Channel & Alliance at Ubisecure. “It’s for this reason that we chose to partner with Onfido and we see this as an exciting new offering for our customers who want to verify their user base securely and efficiently.”
