Verif-y is a technology company that reestablishes trust among individuals and the various organizations that consume their data. We allow these organizations to automate identity verification processing while also allowing individuals to securely own and manage their data. This combination significantly improves the onboarding and identification processing efforts required by various regulations, while at the same time materially reducing a corporation’s or other institution’s privacy and compliance liabilities. Verif-y’s solution is unique and is unmatched in the market, and creates for the first time, an alignment between an organization’s need to adhere to various compliance and privacy regulations, and the individual’s ability to control who will see their identity documents, and professional credentials. We leverage the relevant tenants of blockchain technology, such as encryption, immutability, recovery and secure sharing to provide integrated compliance, privacy and identity solutions to our clients.

Our solutions mainly target the financial service industry where these compliance, privacy and identity needs are the most apparent. Our solutions eliminate the manual, difficult and inefficient paper-based identity verification processes by offering automated Know Your Customer Screening (KYC), Know Your Business Screening (KYB), Anti-money Laundering Screening (AML), Accredited Investor Screening (ACI), and Credential & Employment Verification (C&EV). Users can seamlessly upload their passports, national IDs, employment history, by taking a picture with their mobile phones and completing the verification process in seconds. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML) and proprietary algorithms, Verif-y authenticates these documents in real-time and delivers the results to our clients in a simple to use, web-based dashboard. These functionalities allow Verif-y to serve various types of clients with the same strong, reliable and highly secure identity solution. Thus, while the financial services industry is one of the larger consumers of our services and where we currently focus our marketing efforts, our services are applicable and used by many others, such as: educational institutions, healthcare providers, government agencies, and other corporations.

Once the individual’s identity documents and/or educational and professional records are digitally validated using our proprietary technology, they are uploaded into the user’s credential wallet where they are stored and exclusively managed by the user. Verif-y is in advanced stages of constructing an additional layer of proprietary blockchain storage solution that is encrypted and ensures that only the user can access, control, and manage their highly sensitive and valuable data.

Verif-y provides a solution to combat the need for improved Digital Identity Verification in the form of effortless, reliable ID Verification with secure storage to remove regulatory risk.

summary of opportunity

Given the ubiquity of data breaches, hacks, and fraudulent practices around the world, the importance of accurate verification of the counterparty with which business is conducted in today’s global economy has never been more acute. In addition, the world’s largest institutions have seen financial fines in excess of billions of dollars, seeding demand for better ways to validate and manage digital identity processes and the associated data.

The costs associated with identity verifications are high, with fraudulent activities only increasing over the past several years. The need for a new more accurate, cost-effective and secure way of confirming and utilizing an individual's identity for corporations, other institutions and the underlying user is clear. Verif-y has built its products and services to address this need and works with its existing clients to improve their overall efficiency and trust in this ever-changing market.

Product and Services

Our products and services were developed in order to give our clients a one stop solution that addresses their main pain points in the areas of compliance, on boarding, privacy and digital identity.

Regulatory Compliance Screening Services

Verif-y provides its existing and future clients with a simple, cost effective, one-stop-shop solution to meet the ever-shifting landscapes of banking compliance, and other regulatory legislation (e.g. GDPR, CCPA, and more). For example, Verif-y’s KYC platform already includes Anti-Money Laundering (AML) screening, and the option to supplement your KYC process with other screenings such as Accredited Investor (ACI.) Verif-y’s compliance algorithms analyze user entered or generated data against various data points and sources in order to generate a decision based on a client’s specific business practices and compliance requirements.

Accredited Investor Screening

  • Verif-y Accredited Investor Screening technology includes KYC as its first step. After our KYC process has completed it then continues to determine whether the user is in an Accredited Investor according to the guidelines set out by the SEC.

Anti-Money Laundering Screening:

  • Our technology automatically scans tens of international databases to check against Financial Sanctions Lists, Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), United Nations Security Council List, among others. Depending on our client’s needs we can limit or expand the number of anti-money laundering databases we scan to best fit their needs.
  • Once a database is scanned using data such as the users full name and country our solution provides a PASS/FAIL result.

Our Know Your Business and Company Verification Solutions

  • Automation – Verif-y automates State and Government business registration checks allowing for a seamless search, find and business authentication process. Verif-y does not use 3rd party databases, instead focusing on primary source verification methods.

Know Your Customer

Our Compliance Solution Technology utilizes the following Fraud Detection Methods when analyzing individual IDs submitted for verification:

  • ID Authenticity Assessment: Each Government recognized National ID has a unique presentation of data and format. Our systems authenticate this format to assess whether the ID has been tampered with.
  • Proof of Identification Ownership: Selfie Image uploads allow our technology to compare facial features with the image presented in the Identification Card.
  • Data Integrity Analytics: Our system matches the text and content provided by the individual with the documentation provided by the individual during the screening process. It catches name mismatches, unsupported identification documentation, date of birth mismatches, to name a few.
  • Internal Propriety Identification Document Databases: Verif-y has comprised its own internal database of identity documentation from around the world. It utilizes this database to do additional ID fraud and template checks.
Technology Overview

Verif-y is a Self-Sovereign Identity (SSI) and Compliance Screening Platform that provides Regulatory Compliance Screening Services for Know Your Customer (KYC), Anti-Money Laundering (AML), Know Your Business (KYB), and Accredited Investor screenings (ACI) as well as Credential and Employment Verification (C&EV), Identity Verification (IDV), and more.

Verif-y incorporates artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning (ML), optical character recognition (OCR), facial recognition, biometric matching, and data extraction and analysis when analyzing and processing the various data types that are transmitted through its platform.

Verif-y’s innovative blockchain-based identity solution is built on the principal that an identity and its underlying credentials are owned and governed by the person or persons to which they belong. Verif-y leverages attestations directly to the blockchain coupled with secure, distributed file storage technologies to ensure validity and authenticity of the user’s credentials.

Prevalence of Fake Credentials: An increasing amount of people (~85%) lie or embellish their resumes, making it harder for employers to determine best applicants.
