Jumio Go Wins Gold for AI in Security in 2021 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards®

Automated digital identity verification solution honored for fighting fraud, helping businesses digitally onboard customers

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Jumio, the leading provider of AI-powered end-to-end identity verification and eKYC solutions, today announced Jumio Go was named a gold winner in the 2021 Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards. Jumio Go, a fully automated digital identity verification solution capable of defending against bots, advanced spoofing attacks and sophisticated deepfakes, was honored for fighting online fraud by verifying user identities remotely.

Jumio uses a unique hybrid approach of AI, machine learning and biometrics to thwart fraud, simplify compliance and determine if users are who they claim to be. Powered by AI, Jumio Go provides enterprises with a real-time, secure and reliable way to verify remote users. Given the growth of deepfakes, bots and sophisticated spoofing attacks, Jumio Go has integrated certified liveness detection to detect when photos, videos or even realistic 3D masks are used instead of actual selfies to create online accounts.

“Since businesses have shifted online amid the COVID-19 pandemic, verifying a user’s digital identity is more critical and challenging than ever as face-to-face verification is no longer an option. In turn, fraud is also escalating as cybercriminals are taking advantage of the digital world to refine their techniques,” said Robert Prigge, CEO of Jumio. “We’re honored to help enterprises combat this challenge by providing a secure, fully automated solution for enterprises to safely onboard customers, confirm user identity and stop fraud in its tracks.”

The Cyber Security Global Excellence Awards recognize cybersecurity and information technology vendors with advanced, ground-breaking products, solutions and services that are helping set the bar higher for others in all areas of security and technologies.
