Veriff Station has completed its closed beta and is now available to the general public. The digital identity and verification platform formally launched in October.
Developed by Veriff, Veriff Station was built with an eye towards smaller enterprises, and was designed to be an affordable and accessible anti-fraud solution. Veriff has continued to improve the platform since its public debut, adding automatic face recognition to the Android SDK and upgrading the iOS SDK to allow clients to scan the barcodes on U.S. driver’s licenses.
Veriff also added support for 11 new languages, most of which are spoken in countries in Scandinavia and Eastern Europe, including Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, Hungarian, Romanian, Bulgarian, Serbian, Slovenian, Slovak, Macedonian, and Croatian. With those new localizations, Veriff Station now offers support for 34 different languages.
Veriff was founded in 2015, and later entered the Y Combinator accelerator in the spring of 2018. The company is one of the many startups looking to capture a portion of the anticipated $15 billion identity verification market, and is offering a free 30-day trial in an effort to attract new clients.
In the meantime, the FIDO Alliance recently emphasized the importance of secure digital identities at a policy forum in Washington, D.C.
