Signicat expands Digital Identity verification offering

“The Internet has damaged the concept of trust and created a world where it is easy to masquerade as someone else”

Posted 24 October 2019 by

Norwegian ‘Trusted Digital Identity’ specialist company Signicat says it’s expanding the “reach and reliability” of its Digital Identity verification offering.

Specifically, via a new technical interface and third-party integrations, it’s claiming it can now offer Identity verification in 208 countries through Identity document scanning, web-based video interviews, and NFC scanning of passports.

Signicat CEO Gunnar Nordseth: “Businesses, particularly those in regulated industries, need to maintain trust in their customer relationships”

That, it is claiming, will help businesses “increase confidence and reduce risk as they enter into digital relationships with their customers”. 

In technical terms, we’re talking about a newly-rebuilt API that means new Digital Identity verification methods can be easily added to the Signicat Digital Identity Platform.

“The Internet has damaged the concept of trust and created a world where it is easy to masquerade as someone else,” claims the company’s CEO, Gunnar Nordseth.

“Businesses, particularly those in regulated industries, need to maintain trust in their customer relationships. But as digitisation of customer engagement processes grows, reducing risk and fraud is vital.

“Our aim with this release is to future-proof our platform to ensure we can provide our customers with access to best-in-class identity verification technologies across a wide range of markets, all accessible through a single integration point.”
