We are proud to announce that Superior is now partnering with Acuant, a leading global provider of identity verification solutions. Superior will offer Acuant's hardware and software on-boarding solutions to its financial services clients in order to improve fraud prevention, accelerate customer on-boarding and meet regulations such as KYC and AML.
For nearly 90 years, Superior has provided banks with a one-stop-shop for multiple treasury products. With Acuant's technology, Superior can help financial institutions nationwide modernize document authentication and identity verification.
"We are committed to helping financial institutions operate efficiently while protecting against fraud," said Bob Traut, Chairman and CEO of Superior. "Ensuring that customers are using valid documents and that they are who they claim to be is the cornerstone of trust for banking. With Acuant's hardware and software solutions, our banking partners can authenticate documents and verify identity in seconds, delivering a better customer experience and reducing wait times."
Acuant's InfinitID™ is the first all-in-one identity document authentication device, combining hardware and software that does not require any software implementation, integration, terminal hardware or operational training. Acuant supports identity documents including, but not limited to, driver's licenses, passports and visas from over 196 countries and all 50 U.S. states. Superior will also offer traditional ScanShell scanners for image capture of driver's licenses and government-issued ID cards.
Financial institutions can also purchase AssureID™ software to validate new customers and protect against identity theft and fraud. AssureID authenticates identity documents with patented technology that extracts biometric and alphanumeric data and applies 50+ forensic document-specific tests. Working in real-time, AssureID eliminates manual screening errors, speeds up the document inspection process and significantly reduces employee training, operating costs and customer inconvenience.
For mobile applications, Acuant Face™ software integrates into AssureID, performing powerful bio-metric facial recognition and liveness detection. A user simply captures an image of their government-issued ID and then takes a selfie. The selfie image is compared to an extracted photo from the identity document such as a driver's license or passport to verify a match.
"Working with an industry leader like Superior will bring our document authentication and identity verification solutions to more financial institutions nationwide," said Acuant President and CEO Yossi Zekri. "Identity fraud is on the rise with new scams such as synthetic ID and banks must be more vigilant than ever in verifying customer identities. At the same time, consumers are demanding fast, friendly banking experiences that utilize the latest technology to make their lives easier. Acuant provides seamless multi-factor authentication to fight fraud and aid in meeting KYC/AML regulations, while delivering a superior customer experience."
