Palo Alto, Calif. – May 3, 2018 – Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced its Netverify® solution was named Best Product in Biometrics and Hot Company in Fraud Prevention by the 2018 InfoSec Awards. Jumio’s Netverify® solution was recognized for empowering companies to verify that an individual’s real-world identity matches their digital identity, and to detect and deter online fraud while providing a simple customer experience.

The InfoSec Awards, created by Cyber Defense Magazine, is an annual review of the most innovative, market leading, next-generation and cutting-edge INFOSEC companies offering incredible products and services. The winners were announced during this year’s RSA conference.

“We are honored to be recognized as Best Product in Biometrics and a Hot Company in Fraud Protection by Cyber Defense Magazine,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio. “As online fraud solutions become more advanced, so do the fraudsters. Our digital identity verification solutions hold a unique key to fraud prevention because it requires users to take a “selfie” in the verification process, and most criminals have no desire to provide photographic proof of their crime. We are constantly investing in new technologies, such as advanced biometrics, machine-learning and augmented AI, to ensure that we continue to innovate ahead of the fraud-curve.”

This recognition comes on the heels of momentous business growth. Recently, Jumio surpassed previous records to verify more than 120 million identities using the Netverify solution. The company also increased annual recurring revenue by 96 percent in 2017 over 2016.

“Cybercrime, Hactivism, Cyberespionage, Ransomware and malware exploits are all on the rise, Jumio has won the awards for both Best Product for Biometrics and Hot Company for Fraud Prevention from our magazine. They won after we reviewed nearly 3,000 infosec companies, globally, because they are an innovator on a mission to help stop breaches and get one step ahead of the next threat, proactively,” said Gary S. Miliefsky, Publisher, Cyber Defense Magazine.
