Digital identity verification provider honored for combating online fraud and pioneering AI innovation

Palo Alto, CA — June 5, 2019 — Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced it was named a winner of the 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award in the Authentication and Identity category. Business Intelligence Group’s annual awards program seeks to recognize companies on the front lines of cybersecurity, working to keep data and electronic assets safe from hackers and other online threats across the globe.

In February 2019, Jumio launched Jumio Authentication, the first to market video-selfie authentication tool enabling users to verify themselves during high-risk transactions and unlock everything from online accounts to rental cars, replacing passwords on any device. Jumio is the leader in AI-powered digital identity verification, completing more than 300,000 ID verifications daily and over 170 million verifications to date. Jumio uses a unique hybrid approach of augmented intelligence, AI, machine learning, face-based biometrics, certified liveness detection, computer vision technologies and human review to thwart fraud, simplify compliance and determine if users are who they claim to be.

Jumio was recognized for leading the market with innovative authentication technology, pioneering AI innovation and staying a step ahead of fraudsters by empowering organizations of all sizes and types with the tools to safeguard their ecosystems and better protect the identities of their users.

“Winning the Fortress Cyber Security Award is a great honor as it recognizes the time, energy and passion we’ve invested across the company to make the internet a safer place by working to eradicate fraud,” said Robert Prigge, president of Jumio. “Sadly, companies can no longer trust that people are who they say they are online, and that’s why modern companies need a reliable means of identity proofing and authenticating their users.”

This recognition continues a momentous year for Jumio. This year alone Jumio has won a number of industry awards for innovation, cybersecurity and company growth, including being named one of Fast Company’s 50 Most Innovative Companies in the World,  Best Product in Biometrics, Best Product Fraud Prevention and Market Leader in Compliance by the InfoSec Awards, a Best Place to Work by Business Intelligence Group, the Fastest Growing Cybersecurity Company in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, Business Intelligence Group’s 2019 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards, a Silver Stevie in the Most Innovative Tech Company of the Year category and a Bronze Stevie in the Fastest Growing Tech Company of the Year category, and one of the Best Places to Work in FinTech by SourceMedia.
