Previous product launches to improve fraud prevention

The company augmented its platform with AML screening and monitoring in July 2021, and this feature enables a combined screening of users against certain global watchlists to make a risk assessment and to avoid violating various sanctions. The solution is able to screen a person’s identity against PEP (politically exposed person) lists, sanctions lists, global watchlists and adverse media at regular and self-selected time intervals. It allows the IDnow platform to monitor thousands of AML lists concurrently and in real-time.

Sticking to AML, the company has also launched video identifications in the same year. Users can use the service to perform non-automated identity verification procedures at any time due to the overnight operation, while being AML-compliant.

IDnow was founded in 2014 in Germany and offers a suite of identity proofing solutions addressing a wide range of use cases from low to high assurance levels. IDnow serves over 900 enterprise customers across multiple verticals with coverage of 195 countries.
