Anyline Integrates Knomi® into Customers’ Identity Verification Processes
BURLINGTON, MASS. –– March 16, 2023 –– Aware, Inc. (NASDAQ: AWRE) today announced a new partnership with Anyline, a global leader in mobile data capture and data insights, to integrate Knomi®, Aware’s industry-leading mobile biometric authentication framework, into the Electronic Know Your Customer (eKYC) identity verification process for one of the largest banks in Pakistan.
Under terms of the partnership, Anyline handles the capture and digitization of data from identification documents, while Aware provides the biometric technology to verify the person claiming to be on the document is live and matches the person on the document. This enables the Pakistani bank to remotely and securely open bank accounts for new customers and eventually verify the identity of current customers.
“Our ongoing partnership with Anyline, and our collaboration to serve this bank, will help expand positioning for Aware in the Middle Eastern market,” says Craig Herman, Aware’s Chief Revenue Officer. “Banking, one of the most regulated industries, relies on authentication solutions delivering the utmost in security and customer convenience. Biometrics are big enabler of this, and we feel Knomi is the perfect complement to Anyline’s mobile data capture capabilities for identity verification.”
“Enterprise-grade scanning solutions like Anyline are ideal for corroborating the authenticity and legitimacy of identity documents,” says Lukas Kinigadner, CEO & Founder of Anyline. “It is equally important for eKYC to make sure the person presenting a document is in fact the actual owner of that document. Knomi is the ideal counterpart to Anyline, making sure there’s a match between the person in front of you and their photo ID.”
