AMSTERDAM, December 9, 2019 – Keesing Technologies, the leading global identity verification provider, announces the release of its new ID verification solution for remote customer onboarding. The solution, which comes as a web API, is part of the cutting-edge AuthentiScan product suite and helps organisations achieve regulatory compliance while streamlining their customers’ onboarding journey. Accuracy, ease-of-use and reliability are key features of the new AuthentiScan web API.
The AuthentiScan web API offers a seamless identity-proofing system enabling financial institutions (FIs) and other organisations to onboard new customers on-the-go, without the need for customers to deliver identity documents to a branch office. In the web API, Keesing combines its trusted ID document verification with biometric facial recognition and liveness detection functionalities, guaranteeing an extremely secure customer identification process.
AuthentiScan guides the customer through the process of taking a photo of his ID document and a selfie for facial comparison with the photo on the ID document. To ensure biological identifiers are from the proper user and not from someone else, liveness detection takes place through eye (blinking) and lip movement (smiling) analysis. The addition of liveliness detection to the process bolsters security when onboarding customers remotely as it will make it extremely difficult to impersonate the individual whose photo appears on an ID document. The ID document is then thoroughly verified against Keesing’s ID reference database including information of more than 6,000 ID documents from over 200 countries. This process provides extensive ID document verification that can be trusted.
The web API also includes OCR (Optical Character Recognition) autofill functionality to speed up the enrolment process for both the FI and customer, instantly boosting efficiency and enabling a hassle-free, convenient onboarding experience. AuthentiScan meets all Anti-Money Laundering (AML) compliance mandates and creates a compliance report for each onboarded customer.
