The new partnership gives US-based AuthenticID an on-ground presence in the UK, Ireland and Germany as they present their unparalleled global identity authentication solutions to European financial industry.

AuthenticID, a leading technology company specializing in identity authentication solutions, today announced they have partnered with Capital Edge (CE), a London-based full service consulting firm providing expert change delivery experience to some of the world’s largest banks. The go-to-market partnership with CE will give AuthenticID, and their unparalleled suite of identity authentication technology tools designed specifically for face-to-face and online channels of commerce, exposure to banks in the UK, Ireland and Germany through CE’s business development team.

“We’re excited to have CE providing introductions and business development support for key banks in the UK, Ireland and Germany,” said AuthenticID’s President Blair Cohen. “Our solution accurately authenticates a customer’s identity – of anyone from anywhere – in less than 20 seconds using our automated forensic ID document authentication technology. We’re 10 times faster and more accurate than any of our competitors’ solutions. We eliminated the need for tedious and often inaccurate manual entry of information and our accurate Facial Recognition engine by comparing the headshot on an ID with a ‘selfie’ photo of the customer making the transaction. Our cloud-enabled document authentication solution, CatfishAIR, validates government-issued ID documents in 192 countries worldwide. We have the ability to eliminate identity fraud at banks in Europe,” concluded Cohen.

“AuthenticID is rapidly becoming the leader in the identity authentication marketplace,” said Ian Bamber, Director of Capital Edge. “No other vendor brings together NIST certification, a vast document repository equivalent to that used by the US Department of Homeland Security, and an exceptionally well-designed user interface. Most impressively, AuthenticID’s end-to-end response times when tested were less than 20 seconds. AuthenticID is one of the most innovative technology vendors we have ever partnered with and its solutions will allow European banks to eliminate fraud being driven by fake identifications.”
