Identity verification specialist Jumio and engineering solutions and enterprise support provider Copper River IT have announced a partnership that will see them team up to provide online identity verification services to help government agencies and the public sector combat fraud and meet KYC (Know Your Customer) and AML (Anti-Money Laundering) regulations.
The addition of Jumio’s remote identity verification solutions will help Copper River’s customers vet new users, simplify the onboarding of new customers, and reduce instances of online fraud.
“We’re helping our enterprise customers embrace digital transformation while deriving maximum value from their current network infrastructure investment,” said Bill Halladay, Copper River IT President. ”We’re super excited about this partnership with Jumio since it enables us to provide essential identity proofing services that help mitigate fraud, reduce compliance risk and enhance the organization’s security reputation — all within an intuitive user experience.”
Copper River IT is owned entirely by the Native Village of Eyak, Alaska, and has a history of relationships with several US federal agencies including the departments of Transportation, Homeland Security and Defense, while also working with other state, local and education (SLED) organizations including DC.gov, the County of Fairfax (Virginia), the City of Alexandria, Old Dominion University, Hughes Aerospace Corporation and the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.
With this news, Jumio continues what has been a busy month following a partnership announcement that saw the addition of iProov’s liveness detection capabilities to its own Jumio KYX solution, as well as the recent appointment of former TransUnion VP Bala Kumar as its new Chief Product Officer.
“The core mission of any government or public sector organization is to protect public well-being and deliver services to citizens and stakeholders, while carefully stewarding taxpayers’ dollars. This starts with reliably establishing the digital identities of these remote users to ensure that you know, with a high level of assurance, that they are who they claim to be,” said Dean Hickman-Smith, Jumio’s chief revenue officer. “This alliance enables Jumio to help Copper River’s federal and SLED customers identify end users while simultaneously improving onboarding conversion rates, dramatically reducing online fraud and meeting increasingly stringent compliance mandates.”
