Mitek Invented Mobile Deposit®
Mobile innovation is normal for us. In 2008 our CEO, James DeBello, boldly announced to an industry event that Mitek was inventing a way to use the camera on a smartphone to capture images of a check for a mobile deposit. His listeners were skeptical. And yet, just a few years later, his invention, Mobile Deposit®, is used by more than 4,800 financial brands and 60 million consumers.
Cutting Edge ID Verification
High abandonment rates and compromises of secret personal data are scaring consumers and forcing enterprises to seek new identity-proofing solutions. Mitek is investing in mobile identity-proofing methods that take advantage of what a consumer has (documents and attributes) versus what they know. This new approach is a better way to secure the mobile channel for customer acquisition as well as high value transactions and interactions.
In June of 2015, Mitek acquired IDchecker, a global provider of cloud based identity document verification solutions. The acquisition broadened Mitek’s global presence, expanded document coverage to more than 3,500 document types and added international customers in payments, financial services and information services. IDchecker's solutions and team are now part of Mitek.
