Acuant has entered a partnership with Nikia Dx to supply it with its biometric identity verification technology, as Nikia Dx aims to increase financial service security and ensure regulatory KYC and AML compliance, the company announced.
“We are focused on realizing the promise of customer engagement for our clients through disruptive digital solutions,” said Phil Santoni, CEO of Nikia Dx. “Our team has been effectively delivering strategic transformation solutions in every business sector, unlocking assets and creating business value for our clients for more than 30 years. We see exciting market opportunities for providing the Acuant’s extensive customer ID verification solutions as a critical aspect of our comprehensive offerings for financial services institutions.”
Nikia Dx customers can now access Acuant’s AI-powered Trusted Identity Platform, a suite of omnichannel products that includes identity document authentication, biometric facial recognition matching and liveness detection.
“It’s imperative for financial services organizations to provide a secure and seamless digital experience for their customers,” said Yossi Zekri, President and CEO of Acuant. “Our partnership with Nikia Dx will provide a superior digital experience for their global customer base, while offering the most effective ID verification and fraud detection services, including identifying emerging threats like deepfakes and synthetic identity fraud.”
