London, UK — 20 July 2023 The UK’s only bank-verified digital identity service provider, OneID®, has partnered with world-leading digital ID verification company IDVerse (previously known as OCR Labs Global) to provide global coverage and additional ID evidence options for OneID® customers and individuals.
- OneID® is the only UK identity service with access to bank-verified data to ensure that every transaction between an organisation and an individual is protected by the most advanced counter-fraud measures—now including generative AI with the addition of IDVerse document scanning capabilities.
- The partnership means OneID® customers can now verify individuals globally, provide broader options for those in the UK who don’t have an online bank account or who choose not to use it, and offer ID checks where rules specify a document scan is needed.
- Through this collaboration, OneID® customers will benefit from IDVerse’s Zero Bias AI™ tested technology, with capabilities to offer more inclusive onboarding.
IDVerse brings additional digital identity verification (IDV) options for OneID®’s customers that provide world-leading document checking and real-person checks.
OneID® is the only UK identity service which uses bank-verified data to ensure that online transactions are protected by the most advanced counter-fraud measures. The only truly digital ID service in the UK, it is already available to circa 50 million UK adults in real-time, helping to protect businesses and citizens from online fraud.
IDVerse is the most certified Identity Service Provider (IDSP), receiving 20 certifications for Right to Work, Right to Rent and Disclosure and Barring Service (DBS) from the United Kingdom’s Digital Identity & Attributes Trust Framework (DIATF). This gives OneID® customers a broad range of UK Government ID profiles to choose from.
Through this partnership, OneID® will use IDVerse’s Zero Bias AI™ tested technology to offer additional capabilities to support business-critical transactions relating to financial services, employment screening and e-signing. IDVerse uses generative AI to train deep neural network systems to protect against discrimination on the basis of race, age and gender and has achieved 99.99 per cent accuracy in independent lab testing.
