When you offer identity credentials from a remote location, you are providing identity verification – also known as identity proofing. Your identity is authenticated in real time using the information you submit. Identity verification is used by organizations, websites and services who need high assurance identity for employees, customers, contractors and vendors. It is used for online access and internal security and there are typically two types:
The SureID® solution provides a biometrically-linked digital identity, allowing individuals to prove their identity to reliant parties right on the spot. Our mobile app uses a QR code to validate the identity of card holders and determine whether the user’s status is active or non-active.
Identity verification must be flexible enough to authenticate approved personnel while strong enough to keep out bad actors. For example, banks and financial institutions want to give you seamless, rapid access to your accounts and other private information while keeping out criminals trying to steal your data. There are different ways to provide identity verification. An organization may want simple identity verification that assures there is no fraud associated with the person. Other situations demand that identity be verified by geographic location, age, phone number or other factors.
Many branches of the federal government use personal identity verification (PIV) cards to control access to federal buildings, computer systems and other secure areas. Identity verification is an important part of providing access to consumers, vendors and employees.
In June 2015, the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) implemented a policy to make PIV cards mandatory on VA information systems, including those accessing the network with ‘elevated privileges.’
Every year, more companies move data and applications to the cloud. Therefore, employees and other stakeholders need access to do their jobs and communicate effectively with customers, suppliers and financiers. Even so, certain individuals or groups are willing to go to great lengths to pilfer your company’s information and assets. It is essential, therefore, that you take steps to make sure you’re only giving access to people who should have it.
