Jumio, the leading provider of end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced it was named the Fraud & Compliance Solution of the Year at the 2019 SBC Awards.
The SBC Awards recognise the achievements of gaming operators and affiliates, as well as suppliers from across all the major disciplines including payments, marketing, platform providers and data. It has quickly become one of the most coveted awards in the industry and 2019 saw a record number of high-quality entries competing, making it a truly remarkable feat to beat out the other capable contenders.
Jumio has a key focus on the gaming sector, serving nine of the top 10 largest operators in the world, and has been helping the top online operators meet strict online age and identity verification mandates implemented by the UK Gambling Commission.
“We are quite honoured to receive this SBC Award because it speaks to our continuing commitment to help gaming and betting sites verify player age, improve sign-up rates and beat cybercriminals with easy KYC,” said Simon Winchester, Jumio’s vice president of EMEA sales. “We are extremely proud of the long-term relationships we have with our gaming customers. The biggest testament to our identity solutions is the number of top gaming operators that recommend us to others year after year.”
Jumio’s AI, biometrics and computer vision technologies have sped up the customer experience and improved fraud detection rates when new accounts are created, or deposits or payouts are made. This, in turn, has dramatically reduced abandonment and player churn. It’s too expensive to acquire customers only to lose them due to time-consuming and unfriendly KYC processes.
Mandated by jurisdictional licensing requirements, gaming operators use Jumio’s ID and identity verification capabilities, combined with biometric face-based authentication to make sure their customers are who they say they are and to keep cybercriminals at bay. The ID is authenticated against the unique security features of passports, driver’s licenses and ID cards.
