Wednesday 13 October 2021 09:58 CET | News

US-based account monitoring company Outseer has announced new identity-centric capabilities for its Fraud Manager product in partnership with authentication solutions company 1Kosmos.

The developments include: 

  • Account Enrolment Protection: customers can enrol their users into new digital services, leveraging biometric facial detection capabilities to prevent fake accounts from synthetic and stolen identities by validating a live human face against a government issued ID, and document verification against third-party databases.

  • Account Takeover Detection: customers can leverage facial recognition to prevent account compromise attempts. This solution leverages FIDO2 compliant biometrics for authentication of users in case of a high-risk transaction or digital activity. Additionally, it allows passwordless authentication to be selected as the primary method of authentication during sign up.

Through the Outseer Beyond programme, third-party providers including 1Kosmos help to expand the scope and reach of Outseer solutions to a worldwide customer and partner community. 1Kosmos delivers a distributed digital identity platform that is both FIDO2 and NIST certified, providing strong customer authentication to account enrolment, logins, payment processing, and identity fraud.
