PALO ALTO, CALIF., LONDON, UK—27, July 2016 – Jumio, the leading digital ID verification company, today announced record results for Q2 2016, with a greater than 65 percent growth in recurring revenue year-over-year, and a record 30 million transactions completed to-date.

These results are not only indicative of the company’s continued innovation; they also demonstrate the widespread demand across core verticals for a trusted ID verification solution.
