Jumio Wins Gold in 2019 IT World Awards®

Leading digital identity verification provider named hot technology and solution of the year in security software

Palo Alto, Calif. — August 6, 2019 — Jumio, the leading provider of end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced it was named a Gold Winner of the 2019 IT World Awards in the Security Software, Hot Technology and Solution of the Year category. Jumio’s AI-powered trusted identity as a service solution was honored for its innovative technology that can confirm a user’s digital identity in seconds, its superior user experience and its ability to help enterprises combat fraud.

The annual technology awards program recognizes the world’s best in organizational performance, products and services, hot technologies, executives and management teams, successful deployments, product management and engineering, customer satisfaction, and public relations in every area of information technology. Submissions were scored by leading industry experts to determine the winners.

Jumio is the leader in AI-powered digital identity verification, completing more than 300,000 ID verifications daily and over 180 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 online users are who they claim to be.

“As near-daily data breaches continue to expose usernames, passwords and other information on the dark web, traditional methods of authentication can no longer be trusted to authenticate users,” said Robert Prigge, president of Jumio. “Being honored with the Gold IT World Award validates our vision to create a safer digital ecosystem by helping enterprises confirm a user’s true digital identity through face-based authentication.”

This recognition adds to an already momentous year for Jumio. This year alone, Jumio has received 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, a 2019 Fortress Cyber Security Award winner for Authentication and Identity, 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.
