Socure Named Lead Innovator in Identity Proofing for Financial Institutions by Research Firm IDC


Company Recognized for Advanced Predictive Analytics Platform that
Combines Deep Learning and AI Technologies to Verify Digital IDs,
Prevent New Account Fraud, and Enhance KYC Compliance

Socure, a leading provider of
predictive analytics for digital identity verification, today announced
it was named an IDC Innovator for identity proofing by research firm
International Data Corporation (IDC).
The Socure ID+ platform was cited for helping financial institutions
reduce fraud, increase auto acceptance in the onboarding process, and
cut costs associated with manual review.

Socure was profiled in the report, IDC
Innovators: Identity Proofing Solutions to Prevent New Account Fraud and
Enhance KYC Compliance, 2018
(IDC #US43054918).

According to the IDC analysts, verifying the legitimacy of new
identities is a key step in the customer onboarding process. However,
identity verification often involves considerable amounts of manual
effort that can produce high rates of false positives and are unable to
distinguish synthetic identities, putting firms in a position of higher
compliance and fraud risk.

Socure was named an IDC Innovator for its advanced predictive analytics
platform that uses deep learning technologies to produce highly accurate
assessments and validations of digital identities in online channels.
The Secure ID+ Platform was cited for its unique use of AI to
simultaneously run hundreds of models in a "champion challenger" process
to identify those that are most efficient and accurate based on each
customer's requirements.

"Being named an IDC Innovator provides further validation that Socure
has developed the most advanced AI platform for online identity proofing
in the financial services industry," said Tom Thimot, CEO for Socure.
"In addition to helping banks increase their auto acceptance rates by up
to 60%, the explainability of our models enables them to meet regulatory
