SAN DIEGO, CA, and LONDON, UK, October 23, 2017 – — Mitek (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com), a global leader in mobile capture and identity verification software solutions, announced today a partnership with Asignio (www.asignio.com), a proprietary handwriting-based biometric authentication service, to provide a complete Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) solution.
Identity verification combined with biometric authentication provides a major growth opportunity for both Asignio and Mitek to enter new markets and explore new market verticals. Providing verified identity, secure authentication, and improved user experience all in one IDaaS package will help clients meet the security needs of their users while complying with new and upcoming regulations.
“Combining Mitek’s ID verification capabilities with Asignio’s easy-to-use, handwriting-based authentication system provides secure biometric authentication tied to a valid identity,” said Kyle Rutherford, CEO of Asignio Inc. “Mitek’s deep understanding and expertise in identity verification complements Asignio’s 3-factor authentication, allowing for continuous KYC that complies with upcoming AML regulations and reduces fraud.”
This partnership solves many of the new and upcoming regulatory challenges presented by legislation including GDPR, PSD2, and AMLD4. Unlike current security mechanisms that may have been compromised by recent breaches, Asignio’s biometric authentication and Mitek’s identity verification capabilities can establish identity without relying on compromised data. This IDaaS solution secures digital identity with strong authentication, preventing fraud while protecting the customers privacy and identity.
“Offering verified identity, secure authentication, and improved user experience all in one − creates the industry’s most robust IDaaS solution,” said Sarah Clark, Senior Vice President of Product at Mitek. “We look forward to working with Asignio to bring this unique solution to financial services, telecom, travel, and other markets to help them achieve trust, security and compliance in the digital channel.”
