We’re thrilled to announce the arrival of AwareID.  

On Monday, at the Money 20/20 conference in Las Vegas, we revealed the details of our new cloud-based adaptive authentication platform. You may have questions about what AwareID is and what it can do for your business, so we put together the top questions we received about AwareID at the conference. 

If you want to learn more about how this new platform can fit your business needs, reach out today, and we’ll be glad to set up a time to talk. 

Q: What is AwareID?

A: AwareID is an adaptive authentication platform that offers businesses revolutionary authentication, validation, and security – on demand.

Until AwareID, onboarding and security solutions have been time-consuming, expensive, or confusing–or all three.

It’s the only authentication platform of its kind in the marketplace. It’s a single, low-code platform that combines identity verification, multi-factor authentication, and biometrics to help businesses lower costs and save time while keeping their enterprise and people secure.

Q: How can I use AwareID?

A. What does your business need help with? Some common use cases are listed below, but the power of AwareID is that it can be applied to a range of different business problems, large and small.

This solution will improve your onboarding processes, enhance your user experience, reduce fraud, ensure regulatory compliance, and lower costs.

AwareID offers any combination of identity verification, multi-factor authentication (biometrics, PIN, etc.) and multi-modal authentication (face, voice, etc.), along with document capture and validation of more than 9,000 identity documents from more than 195 countries.


Enroll individuals into an opt-in database through a convenient, easy-to-use mobile offering that can be accessed directly from a smartphone.

This could include: A bank onboarding new customers, anywhere in the world, with no required trips to a branch.


Verify an individual’s identity by comparing their biometric data with data captured during enrollment.

This could include: User authentication to authorize a transaction online.

Physical Access Control

Manage who has access to any physical location demanding a controlled, trackable, and accountable entry/exit system. Available for time and attendance, visitor management, and access control applications.

This could include: Fitness facility or country club member access.

Digital Access Control

Control and provide access to highly-sensitive digital assets in a convenient, easy-to-use framework.

This could include: Access to Human Resource records, like payroll.

Q. Other platforms do these things; why should I care about AwareID?

A. Many platforms handle aspects of what AwareID does – but none can handle all of it. AwareID eliminates the patchwork of solutions that make onboarding and authentication inefficient and expensive.

Q. What are the benefits to my business?

A. You’ll onboard faster and reduce authentication costs.

AwareID is easy to implement. No big IT project with its associated cost and technical resources, and it’s paid for on-demand instead of typical on-prem solutions, which are cost-prohibitive. It integrates seamlessly into existing systems.

With AwareID, small businesses and other organizations can access the best security (biometric MFA) without the need for deep technical expertise or large budgets.

Q. Do I need to configure AwareID?

A. AwareID comes pre-configured and is functional right from the start, but customers can tweak the configuration to meet their specific needs, if desired. AwareID is accessible through an intuitive, easy-to-use, self-service, low-code administrative platform.

Q. Is AwareID secure?

A: Aware takes measures to ensure the privacy and security of biometric data at every step in the cloud-based transaction, including encryption of all data in transit, erasure of data at various intervals, and no storage of personally identifiable information (PII).

Aware is a global authentication company that validates and secures identities using proven and trusted adaptive biometrics. Aware’s software and software-as-a-service offerings address the growing challenges that government and commercial enterprises face in knowing, authenticating and securing individuals through frictionless and highly secure user experiences. Aware’s algorithms are based on the most diverse data sets in the world and can be tailored to the unique security and requirements of each customer.
