SAN DIEGO, CA and LONDON, UK, April 18, 2017 – Mitek (NASDAQ: MITK, www.miteksystems.com), a global leader in mobile capture and identity verification software solutions, today announced that a leading global financial services firm has selected its Mobile Verify® and Mobile Fill® solutions to speed up and secure the mobile account opening process for its wealth management accounts.

“Mobile Fill and Mobile Verify provide an ideal solution for companies that need to be certain of a customer’s identity in the mobile channel,” said Sarah Clark, General Manager, Identity Solutions, Mitek. “While Mobile Fill makes onboarding a snap, Mobile Verify reduces the possibility of a criminal fraudulently accessing or creating accounts.”

According to Javelin Research, new account fraud was rampant in 2016 and losses from account takeover fraud increased 61 percent. To combat these criminal activities, financial services firms leverage Mitek’s advanced computer vision and machine learning technologies to verify their users’ identities in the mobile channel. Mobile Verify uses the camera on a mobile device to authenticate customers’ identity documents, thereby helping companies ensure that only verified customers can create and access accounts.
