Award-winning innovation drives Jumio growth in Q1 2019
Continued investment in AI and machine learning results in 60 percent revenue growth, significant growth in product offerings and industry accolades
Palo Alto, Calif – April 18, 2019 – Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced that revenue grew by 60 percent year-over-year in the first quarter of 2019. Jumio also celebrated a successful start to 2019 in the form of new product launches, an expanded global footprint and multiple key award wins. Jumio launched two new products in Q1 to further fortify its industry-leading suite of identity verification, authentication and compliance solutions.
Jumio Authentication is the first video-selfie authentication solution in the market to combine facial biometrics for initial identity proofing and ongoing user authentication. The solution enables companies to use the same biometric (a 3D face map) to corroborate the identities of new online customers and the identities of existing users. This secure and rapid authentication method is ideal for account logins and high-risk scenarios including wire transfer attempts and password resets in order to overcome the shortcomings and security vulnerabilities of traditional authentication methods (e.g., knowledge-based authentication and SMS-based two-factor authentication).
Jumio Screening is a fully automated anti-money laundering (AML) screening solution that integrates ComplyAdvantage, a dynamic real-time database of people and companies that pose financial crime risk. Jumio Screening helps businesses make the right AML decisions with comprehensive global coverage of sanctions, watchlists, PEPs and adverse media.
“We’re off to a great start in 2019 with the addition of Jumio Authentication and Jumio Screening, which strengthen our product portfolio of AI-powered solutions to defend against account takeovers and sophisticated money laundering schemes,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio president. “These new products are a testament to our continued drive for cutting-edge innovation to help defend against these emerging threats.”
The first quarter of 2019 was also notable for the following achievements:
- Fast Company Most Innovative Companies: Jumio was named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019 and was honored both as the 29th-ranked company globally and the second-ranked company in the Security category.
- Technology and Workplace Culture Recognition: QI 2019 saw a number of awards. On the product and technology front, Jumio was named a winner of Business Intelligence Group’s 2019 Artificial Intelligence Excellence Awards, received four awards in the 2019 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards, along with Best Product in Biometrics, Best Product Fraud Prevention and Market Leader in Compliance by the InfoSec Awards. Jumio also received two awards for workplace culture and was named a Best Place to Work by Business Intelligence Group and one of the Best Places to Work in FinTech by SourceMedia.
- Latin America Expansion: Jumio grew its global footprint by establishing a new sales office in Brazil and appointing Samer Atassi as regional director. Jumio is building on its longstanding commitment to serve fintechs, financial service organizations and sharing economy companies of all sizes by establishing a Latam regional sales center to strategically serve those sectors.
