Acuant Improves Updates to Industry’s Largest Identity Document Library and Enhances Image Spoofing Detection

With More than 1 Billion Trusted Transactions Worldwide, Acuant Continues to Lead in Identity Proofing

Los Angeles, CA, June 28, 2017Acuant, a leading provider of data capture and identity verification software globally, today announced significant enhancements to its AssureID™ and mobile products, including faster updates to the industry’s largest identity document library and new image tampering detection technology. In response to customer demand, Acuant has also added an optional data storage feature and introduced support for Xamarin SDK, as well as, MySQL.

AssureID now provides a more efficient process for customers to access Acuant’s industry leading identity document library which is continuously updated with the latest version of IDs. As a result, customers utilizing Acuant’s library via local and cloud solutions do not have to wait for updates when new IDs, such a state driver’s license, are introduced. Previously the installation of new software meant a lengthy testing cycle for businesses, especially if frequent software updates were required. AssureID has now separated the document library from the software installation making it as easy as uploading a new file to be up to date. This enhancement allows customer facing web sites and mobile apps to maintain the highest stability and availability.

Acuant is also addressing the growing problem of image spoofing. Fraudsters are using tampered images for biometric facial recognition processes where digital images are used for verification of insurance, licensing, or proof of identity in consumer-not-present transactions. Acuant FRM’s new photo tampering detection technology will not approve illegitimate images, allowing for more valid transactions and preventing fraud.

“In today’s market, transaction delays mean losing customers,” said Yossi Zekri, CEO of Acuant. “We are constantly working to improve the speed and accuracy of our identity proofing solutions to allow for a frictionless experience while offering the highest level of authentication to protect against fraudulent transactions.”

Beyond easy integration, Acuant provides multiple deployment options to match any company’s specific needs and use cases.  Recent additions include extending product support to include a Xamarin SDK for mobile solutions. This allows companies to deliver native iOS, Android and Windows applications using existing skills, teams and code. Acuant’s AssureID Connect has also extended its support to MySQL and AWS Aurora databases for companies, providing an on premise deployment choice that is flexible and cost effective.

Additionally, Acuant has recognized the need and request from businesses to safely and securely store customer data without introducing a threat to Personally Identifiable Information (PII). This is accomplished via Acuant’s proprietary data encryption, which is optional to customers, and allows for future use of customer data.

Acuant Partners with eLEND to Streamline Automotive Sales Process

LOS ANGELES, May 16, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Acuant, a leading provider of data capture and authentication solutions, today announced a partnership with eLEND, an automotive technology company, to streamline credit check and financing processes for auto dealerships. eLEND works with more than 3,000 auto dealerships, representing all brands, and is integrated with all major CRM platforms.

Acuant’s AssureID™ and AcuFill™ technology enable dealerships to quickly scan a customer’s ID card, verify demographic information, check for history of fraud or other financial red flags, and automatically port all this information into a database. The integrated technology is proven to reduce the average transaction time by 60 minutes, representing up to a 30% improvement over paper-based, manual entry processes.

“Improving the consumer experience is an enormous challenge facing car dealers today,” said Pete MacInnis, CEO & Founder of eLEND Solutions. “Acuant’s identity verification is a key component of our ID DRIVE product. Our combined solutions are shaving 60 minutes off average transaction times, while increasing sales and profits and improving the consumer’s car buying experience. This is a big deal.  Acuant is a great partner for us.”

With Acuant’s technology, OCR scanning also converts information captured from driver’s licenses, passports, and other government-issued IDs into text format. The system then checks the information against DMV and other records, and auto populates applications the dealership uses for CRM, financing, and regulatory compliance.  eLEND’s platform also offers hard and soft pull credit solutions to automotive retailers.  Combining the two technologies, the driver’s license can triggers a consumer consented pre-qualification with no social security number requirement, jumpstarting the buying process.

“We are excited to work with eLEND to empower auto dealers to bring financing to the front of the sales process,” said Yossi Zekri, President and CEO of Acuant. “Capturing information and verifying potential customers early in the sales engagement process leads to higher closing ratios, a better customer experience, and more profitable deals.

Mount Airey Group and Acuant Partner to Launch First-to-Market Chip Reader Technology for Passport Authentication

LOS ANGELES, March 21, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Mount Airey Group, Inc., a premier provider of identity solutions to federal agencies, is partnering with Acuant, a leading provider of data capture and authentication solutions, to launch the industry’s most comprehensive authentication solution for border control minimizing the acceptance of fraudulent passports.

Acuant’s newly developed chip reader technology, Acuant CHIPTM will function as a core component of AssureIDTM which is integrated with Mount Airey Group’s Ozone® e-Passport Authentication technology. The partnership offers the first-to-market certificate chain validation for passports, including country-specific policy controls.

Acuant CHIP performs a comprehensive series of authentication tests such as, Basic Access Control (BAC) to cryptographically access the chip contents; Active Authentication, to confirm the authenticity of the chip (and that it has not been cloned); Data Group Hash Authentication, to confirm that data group files have not been modified; and Document Signer Authentication, to confirm the authenticity of the Data Group hashes. Ozone® then performs the cryptographic validation of the Document Signer against its trusted Country Signer Directory to confirm that it is a valid signer, that has not been revoked by the country, and that it is in compliance with country-specific policy enforcement controls. The outcome of the Ozone® processing either confirms the authenticity of the presented document or identifies it as untrusted (and possibly fraudulent).

Mount Airey Group, Inc., which supports government and commercial entities globally, has worked with Acuant to integrate its Ozone e-Passport Authentication technology, which collects all relevant PKI data for each country and validates any electronic passport for compliance with International Civil Aviation Organization (ICAO) standards, with the market leading AssureID product. The integrated offering validates a passport’s certificate chain to confirm that the document was electronically signed and issued by the originating country, and as such, can be trusted as an authentic identity document.

“Teaming with Mount Airey Group creates a gold standard for authentication for any use, be it by government or in the commercial sector,” said Steve Maloney, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Strategy of Acuant.

The e-Passport solution is designed to handle a host of issues unique to passports with individualized policies for every country, and complies with all ISO and ICAO standards for e-Passports.

“We are excited to partner with Acuant to create a new standard in chip certification and document authentication that will make it extremely difficult for someone to counterfeit a passport and unlawfully pass through border and airport security processes,” said Paul Townsend, Director of Cybersecurity at Mount Airey Group, Inc. “Together, we’ve introduced the most comprehensive solution on the market that leverages the latest identity verification and authentication technologies.”

Acuant Announces Best-In-Class Data Capture and Multi-Factor Verification Solutions Addressing Rising Identity Fraud in the Digital Economy

idScan® Processes More than 3 Million Credential Based Transactions Monthly and is Part of New User-Friendly Products to Strengthen Real-Time Identity Verification

LOS ANGELES, Feb. 28, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Acuant, a leading provider of data capture and identity verification software globally, announces significant enhancements to new and core technologies building upon the acquisition of AssureTec in May 2016. New products include mobile and desktop Acuant FRMTM facial recognition and match technology and DocXTM – a real time manual review of identity documents by accredited professionals.

Acuant’s core idScan® technology provides the fastest and most accurate capture software to streamline workflows by securely extracting data from government issued ID’s including but not limited to passports, driver’s licenses, visas and military IDs. With no image or data being stored, there is no concern about storing personal information on a device, allowing companies to securely manage data accordingly.

Processing more than 3 million transactions monthly, Acuant’s idScan offers a hassle-free experience allowing scanning of ID’s from any device without the need to hold cards in a certain position, light or angle. With fully automated cropping and a new auto-select size detection feature, time is saved and user errors prevented. Auto-focus and correction coupled with the highest image quality and accuracy in the industry make idScan the premier choice in intelligent data capture for desktop scanning, mobile, and cloud services- with updates to the cloud improving speed by 25%.

Incorporating idScan’s user-friendly technology, Acuant is at the forefront of identity proofing solutions that build trust between businesses and customers and built to conform to regulatory requirements (such as Know Your Customer KYC and Personally Identifiable Information PII).

“We are past the days when two factor authentication, such as entering a password and answering a knowledge based question, is sufficient. Businesses and consumers globally want more protection, but the friction involved with instituting more steps is also a concern,” states Acuant CEO Yossi Zekri. “Technology solutions must offer robust protection against the rise of sophisticated and prevalent identity fraud- however they must also be solutions that are easily adopted and even familiar, such as taking selfies for facial recognition.”

AssureID™, Acuant’s core ID authentication and identity verification product, provides various levels of verification beginning with identifying fake ID’s in a matter of seconds utilizing the industry’s largest ID document library. The addition of Acuant FRM – facial recognition and match technology – addresses not only the need for stronger biometric based security offerings, but also the fact that many workflows are increasingly mobile or web based and even sharing economy focused.

Acuant FRM is as easy as taking a selfie and comparing it to extracted biometric data contained in the government issued ID.  Results are given in seconds reducing fraud by matching the face biometrics of a selfie to the face image on the ID and authenticating they match. In addition, Acuant FRM provides liveness detection to prevent fraudsters from using static images. This ensures that not only does the face match, but there is indeed a live person in front of the camera.

Acuant’s facial recognition works with any mobile device and OS and allows for the option of using a local camera for desktop environments. AssureID’s additional security features include geo-location services so you know where the person is scanning an ID from to flag suspicious behavior, and the ability to check against established (or custom) watch lists such as Interpol and OFAC.

Further strengthening verification offerings, Acuant now offers a manual review product DocX. DocX mitigates fraud by employing a manual review of the document in question by a verified credential expert in real time to avoid customer inconvenience and transaction delays. The expert will evaluate anomalies that automated document authentication and facial review processes identify, including the review of damaged identity documents and poor image quality when applicable.
