“We’re excited to provide U.S. and Canadian corporations with pictureID – the first and only 100 percent accurate identity authentication technology solution,” said Blair Cohen, CEO of AuthenticID. “Rapid growth in our customer base shows the reliance and value our ID authentication solution is delivering to the healthcare, finance and banking, insurance, education, transportation and retail sectors. We’re aggressively accelerating the fight against ID fraud and in the process positioning ourselves as the only solution that can truly save Enterprise-level corporations billions each year,” Cohen concluded.

For U.S. and Canadian companies which meet selection criteria, AuthenticID’s pictureID solution will confirm with absolute accuracy a person’s identity in real-time. Simultaneously, the ID is checked against both state and federal watch lists and is processed through other Department of Homeland Security datasets – including but not limited to – the FBI Hot List, Sex Offender Registry, Fugitives from Justice, ID Fraud, FinCEN, Terrorist Watch List and more.

“We have the ability to save individual corporations millions each year by increasing productivity and vastly reducing human error rate,” continued Cohen. “Whereas compliance checks are typically being performed for corporations daily or weekly in batch by financial institutions – we can include these real-time queries in our ID authentication cost – thereby saving our clients millions. With other solutions it takes three minutes to manually enter data for authentication – our solution can populate customer forms in less than three seconds with 100 percent accuracy – you can’t beat that.”

AuthenticID’s pictureID solution is qualified anti-terrorism technology and users of AuthenticID’s systems are protected from liability up to $100,000,000 by the federally sponsored Safety Act. Visit http://authenticid.co for more information.
