“Trusted Digital Identities requires strong validation of the underlying identity attributes,” said Garrett Gafke, CEO of IdentityMind Global. “Confirm.io provides best in class identity document validation for the United States, especially for the very difficult to validate state IDs that are very common with our Millennial generation. The Confirm.io partnership also delivers on the promise of a frictionless user experience that provides the ability to understand and guard against risk while also keeping customers happy.”

Through remote identity proofing, its solution aids customers in solving the ‘Know Your Customer’ problem that exists in highly regulated industries such as banking, insurance, and healthcare.
“Confirm’s ability to tie credible data to a trusted document at account origination strengthens downstream authentication checks and services. This adds tremendous value to any KYC process requiring remote identity proofing,” said Confirm’s CEO and co-founder, Bob Geiman. “The partnership provides IdentityMind Global with fast and accurate identity document data for it’s RegTech platform.”
