Kambista the First Peruvian Fintech to Use Facial Authentication, Powered by Jumio’s AI-Driven Identity Verification Technology
Kambista users can now make use of this innovative process of identity proofing on Kambista platforms.
Palo Alto, Calif. — December 18, 2019 — Jumio, the leading provider of end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, has partnered with Kambista to help the Peruvian fintech become the first in the country to incorporate online identity verification through facial authentication. This online identity verification solution helps safeguard the digital identity of Kambista customers by helping prevent online fraud or impersonation. Kambista’s integration of Jumio’s AI-powered identity verification enables the fintech to verify online customers by having them first capture a picture of their government-issued ID with a smartphone and then take a corroborating selfie with embedded certified liveness detection functionality. This process ensures that the user is who they claim to be and physically present during the transaction.
“We are always anticipating the needs of our customers. Our security system and process were already rigorous, but now, with the incorporation of identity verification through facial recognition, we can say that it is the most complete and innovative solution in the market,” said Paulo Valdiviezo, Kambista founder. “We also believe that this is a very important milestone for fintech, since it defines high standards of security in a sector that is beginning to have greater relevance in Peru.”
Kambista is constantly updating its service, with a view to fulfilling his ambitious expansion plan to 2023 and expects to have a presence throughout the region. Today, Kambista is largely considered one of the most important and innovative financial services companies in Peru.
“Jumio is excited to partner with Kambista and to be a part of Peru’s digital fintech revolution,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio CEO. “We’re happy to help Kambista onboard good clients faster, fight online fraud and meet strict AML and KYC compliance mandates.”
