Company’s Compliance and Risk Analysts Able to Take a Risk-based Approach Based on the Understanding of the User Behind the Transaction
PALO ALTO, CA., November 13, 2018 – IdentityMind, Digital Identities You Can Trust, today announced that B2Broker, a provider of liquidity and technology solutions for the foreign exchange and cryptocurrency markets, selected IdentityMind to meet its know your customer (KYC) and anti-money laundering (AML) compliance requirements for itself and its global business-to-business (B2B) clients.
“In our line of business, KYC and AML is of paramount importance,” said Evgeniya Mykulyak, COO, B2Broker. “Our business, as well as that of our clients, depends on watertight procedures to carry out all the necessary client checks and to ensure that we are fully compliant in accordance with regulations in different global markets. We felt IdentityMind offered the best KYC and AML compliance solutions available with its automated customer onboarding process and global online identity verification service which matched our rigid requirements.”
According to Mykulyak, B2Broker needed a full proof way to perform KYC and AML compliance requirements as well as identity proofing, risk-based authentication, regulatory compliance, and the prevention of identity fraud.
“We use IdentityMind both for ourselves as B2Broker and also offer it to our B2B clients for KYC and AML in order to help with the process of verifying the identity of their clients and the assessment of potential risks of illegal intentions such as money laundering,” continued Mykulyak. “Industry regulations are tougher than ever and in order to be compliant, and protect all parties involved, KYC and AML are a necessity. We have integrated all our services through IdentityMind’s standards-based API and use it on all of our offerings.”
