Biometrics News - Jumio Grabs Gold at 2019 Best in Biz Awards

Jumio has picked up another award for its selfie-based Jumio Authentication platform. The most recent prize is the Gold Medal in the Enterprise Product of the Year, Security Software category at the 2019 Best in Biz Awards.

Now in their ninth year, the Best in Biz Awards are selected by a panel of tech editors and reporters from a range of major publications, including AdWeek, the Associated Press, Consumer Affairs, Wired, and USA Today. Jumio’s was one of more than 700 entries that competed in a number of different categories.  

“It seems to get harder each year to select the Best in Biz Awards,” said returning Consumer Affairs judge Mark Huffman. “It is particularly gratifying to me to see so many businesses striving to enhance the customer experience.”

Jumio Authentication was released back in February, and uses a 3D face map to compare a selfie to the image on a photo ID for onboarding and authentication.

“Traditional authentication methods, such as passwords and knowledge-based authentication, are no longer secure and have become a glaring threat to enterprise security,” said Jumio CEO Robert Prigge. “It’s time for companies with a digital presence to adopt biometric authentication solutions to protect their users from digital identity fraud.”

The Best in Biz Awards Gold Medal is the latest in a long string of accolades for Jumio. The Jumio Authentication solution took the top spot in the Best Use of Biometrics Category at the 2019 Payments Awards, shortly after receiving a multiple prizes at the Cyber Defense Awards and a Silver Medal at the Golden Bridge Awards.

Jumio has also released a fully automated version of its onboarding solution. The new platform has been dubbed Jumio Go, and it preceded a broader speed and accuracy update across Jumio’s full portfolio of biometric authentication and onboarding services.
