Socure is Redefining Identity Verification for Financial Institutions by Reducing Fraud and Manual Reviews by 80 to 90 Percent

NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Socure, a leader in high-assurance digital identity verification, today announced that Forbes, a leading business publication defining the voice of entrepreneurial capitalism, has named Socure one of America’s most promising artificial intelligence companies in its Forbes’ AI 50 list. The list recognizes startups that have demonstrated leadership in the areas of artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, natural language processing, or computer vision as a part of their core business model.


Socure’s AI-driven ID+ identity verification platform helps banks, fintechs and other financial services organizations drastically reduce third-party identity fraud by evaluating data from hundreds of online and offline data sources such as credit bureaus, carrier phone records, IP addresses, and social networks. The platform ensures highly accurate results, provides greater efficiency in account opening, and drastically reduces the need for costly manual reviews.

“We are honored to be recognized by Forbes for our commitment to use artificial intelligence to eliminate identity fraud,” said Tom Thimot, CEO at Socure. “Being part of this prestigious list is a testament to the hard work of our team over the past year. As we continue to refine our platform and expand our client base, AI and machine learning will continue to be the core of everything we do.”

Socure’s digital identity verification solutions continue to displace legacy systems at consumer-facing organizations across the U.S. In 2018, the company’s revenue grew more than 300 percent year-over-year, fueled by increasing demand for its analytics-based platform. Socure’s customers include seven of the nine largest U.S. banks, six of the top 10 U.S. card issuers, two of the top five global remittance providers, a top five online retailer, as well as leading digital banks, lenders and insurers across the U.S.
