Digital ID Verification Leader Opens Wall Street Presence to Better Serve US Financial Services Customers
PALO ALTO, CALIF. – September 6, 2017 – Jumio Corporation today announced that Q2 sales were up 87 percent year-over-year due to sales within the financial services sector, with large sales to major US banks, cryptocurrency exchanges, and payment platforms. At the close of the quarter, Jumio was helping enterprise and financial services organizations convert more than 100 percent more customers on a daily basis than at the close of 2016.
Jumio created Netverify® Trusted Identity as a Service (TIaaS) to help enterprises deal with the estimated $16 billion cost of identity fraud in 2016.

By successfully verifying the identity of nearly 200,000 consumers per day, Jumio ensures more businesses can KYC (know your customer), generating even more revenue.
“Our emergence as the dominant global leader in identity verification in less than 12 months of our acquisition by Centana Growth Partners demonstrates the completely new energy level and commitment to success by our new owners, our new exec team, and our exceptional employees,” said Jumio President and Chief Executive Officer Steve Stuut. “We listened to our customers’ identity verification problems and delivered a solution that is accurate, consistent, and affordable.
