Posted by Maggie Gallagher on Thu, Mar 17, 2022 @ 10:53 AM

In 2020 alone, Identity Fraud in the US cost almost $56 billion. As digitization and automation are becoming the new norm, personal data is increasingly becoming a hot target for hackers. This is where Identity Verification (IDV) companies like Shufti Pro Limited (SP) come into play.

SP provides a wide range of IDV services, ranging from simple Know Your Customer (KYC) services to Anti-Money Laundering (AML) checks, for people and organizations. Their services enable clients to meet even the strictest data regulatory standard of any industry or region and ensure that they are secure from ID thieves and fraudsters. The company was created in 2017 with basic KYC features. By 2018, they added AML checks, 2-Factor Authentication, Address Verification, Optical Character Recognition (OCR), and Consent Verification Services.

What Separates Shufti Pro from The Identity Verification Competition

Shufti proIn 2019, Shufi Pro began to provide Know Your Business (KYB) services and between 2020-21, they became one of the few IDV companies that offered Artificial-Intelligence and Human-Intelligence based Video-KYC services, and verification through NFC technology, along with a wide range of ‘on and off premises’ IDV services. Headquartered in London, UK, they are a GDPR compliant global services provider, with offices in Cyprus, Sweden, and Dubai.

Although comparatively young in the IDV community, SP’s proactive approach to incorporate regulatory and global data protection guidelines in the delivery of services, and integrate multi-jurisdiction cybersecurity practices, makes them stand apart from competitors.

SP’s OCR services support 150 different Latin and Non-Latin languages, including Arabic and Japanese, which none of their competitors do. 

They also provide on-premises services, and cater to the demands of all clients, regardless of their order size. They offer a 14-day free trial with $50 credits for proof of concept.

They are also among the very few companies that provide payment authentication and Identity Verification through NFC technology which eliminates the need for manual data entries and hence, saves time and operational costs for all clients.

Now, the German Media can utilize Shufti Pro’s age verification solution to prevent minors from accessing content that is not suitable for their age.

They are the only IDV company that provides such a wide range of IDV services, all from a single platform, and that too with extreme ease of integration. By using SP's Restful API, Android / iOS SDK, and Hosted Verification page services, clients can integrate the services with their existing system within 30 minutes.
