Experian is looking to build its profile in the identity authentication space. The company has announced that EK Koh will be stepping up as the new Senior Vice President of Product Management for Global Identity & Fraud Solutions, bringing more than 20 years of product management experience to the position.
“Being able to resolve, identify and accurately recognize customers is the key to many areas of business including fraud prevention,” said Steve Pulley, executive vice president and general manager of Global Identity & Fraud Solutions at Experian. “I’m confident that EK’s product management leadership will be a tremendous asset to our team.”
Koh previously served as the Chief Product Officer at both LiveRamp and Optymyze. At Experian, he will help the company drive growth and find more customers for its multimodal CrossCore security platform.
“Advances in identity and artificial intelligence technologies enable new ways to authenticate users while improving the user experience,” said Koh. “I’m excited to join Experian to help ensure our products continue to offer the most innovative and best in class solutions.”
Experian’s CrossCore is a fraud-prevention and identity verification platform. The company has regularly enhanced its biometric capabilities over the years, largely through partnerships with companies like Acuant, Mitek, and Daon. More recently, Experian released a report noting that most people are willing to hand over their personal information in exchange for more convenience and security when using digital technology.
