Jumio Key Features

  • The company’s core product is a complete end-to-end solution, the KYX Platform, which brings together the many individual modules they offer.
  • Jumio specializes in identity verification and offers businesses access to biometric facial recognition and liveness detection for authentication as well as “live verification experts” that compare the user’s selfie with the identification provided. They also are able to analyze the authenticity of ID documents.
  • Phone and email verification modules are present as well as a device fingerprinting module to uncover potential fraudsters.
  • They offer pre-set rules for AML monitoring that screen new users against global watchlists and PEP data.

Pros of Jumio

Cons of Jumio
  • Offering such a large suite of solutions for identity verification and fraud detection will certainly increase costs, which might be too much for smaller businesses. 
  • Potential for customer churn if the biometric authentication causes issues for the person validating themselves.
  • Limited data enrichment capabilities with no access to live data, which in turn can create issues due to some data becoming stale.
