IdentityMind’s Pioneering and Patented eDNA® Trusted Digital Identities Is Key to Differentiation
PALO ALTO, CA., August 7, 2018 – IdentityMind Global™, Digital Identities You Can Trust, today announced that it has been identified as a Sample Vendor in Identity Proofing and Corroboration in the Gartner “Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management Technologies, 2018*,” published July 13, 2018.
“We are exceptionally pleased to be identified as one of only nine Sample Vendors in the Identity Proofing and Corroboration technologies category of Gartner’s “Hype Cycle for Identity and Access Management Technologies, 2018” for our Version 2.0, SaaS-based, trusted digital identities platform for risk and compliance,” said Jose Caldera, Chief Products and Marketing Officer, IdentityMind Global. “We believe the key to our recognition is our differentiated and patented electronic DNA, or eDNA® for short. Our eDNA technology builds digital assets that represent individuals and their behaviors based on their digital footprint on online transactions. These digital assets are created and maintained over time, becoming richer and far more accurate the more individuals transact.”
IdentityMind’s Version 2.0, SaaS-based, trusted digital identities platform for risk and compliance represents the culmination of years of research in digital identities, machine learning, anomaly detection, regulatory compliance, product development, and close consultation with IdentityMInd clients. It enables clients’ compliance and risk analysts to have a risk-based approach based on the understanding of the user behind the transaction.
According to Gartner: “Identity proofing and corroboration is the combination of activities during an interaction that brings an identity claim within organizational risk tolerance, such that:
- The real-world identity exists.
- The individual claiming the identity is in fact the authentic possessor of that identity.
This process must align three aspects of identity — the real-world identity, the digital identity and the person submitting the identity claim.”
“Identity proofing and corroboration services are evolving beyond traditional ‘identity proofing’ activities related to verification of personally identifiable information (PII),” noted Gartner. “The newly defined market relies heavily on analytics to determine the level of trust in a claimed identity based on real-world and digital identity attributes and behaviors.”
Earlier this year, IdentityMind was also recognized as a Representative Vendor in Gartner’s “Market Guide for Identity Proofing and Corroboration*,” published by Gartner on April 24, 2018. IdentityMind was recognized as one of only three vendors – out of 24 vendors mentioned overall – with capabilities in six out of six uses case for representative vendors in the Market Guide.
IdentityMind is the recipient of two top 2018 industry awards: CIO Review’s 50 Most Promising FinTech Solution Providers and Disruptor Daily’s 10 RegTech Companies Making Waves in the Industry.
