Digital identity verification company honored for fighting fraud and helping customers manage KYC compliance requirements

Jumio, the leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification and eKYC solutions, announced that it was named a gold winner in the 2021 IT World Awards. Jumio was honored for its KYX Platform, a unified identity verification and eKYC solution, which adapts to the unique needs and compliance risks of organizations.

The Jumio KYX Platform knocks down one of the biggest hurdles to digital transformation for many organizations — the identity verification and eKYC process. Whether it’s a customer, user, patient, employee, business partner or student, Jumio helps modern enterprises know, then trust the ‘X’ in their business. The platform enables organizations around the globe to manage compliance requirements, such as KYC, AML and GDPR, by providing a layered approach to identity proofing and corroboration.

“User verification has never been more crucial and challenging for enterprises as face-to-face verification is no longer feasible. Fraudsters are finding new ways to exploit remote operations and impersonate users with stolen data or commit account takeover,” said Robert Prigge, CEO of Jumio “Jumio’s gold IT World Award win validates our efforts to provide a secure, comprehensive solution that helps enterprises confirm user identity, prevent fraud and safely onboard customers.”

More than 65 global industry experts participated in the judging process. The IT World Awards recognize information technology and cybersecurity vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions, and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of technology and cybersecurity.

“The information technology industry continues to show its resilience,” said San Madan, co-President of Globee Awards. “The tech sector is robust and innovative. And the pandemic has changed the way people live, work, shop, and socialize thereby accelerating demand for newer technologies and innovations everywhere.”
