Identiq is a world first, an Anonymous Identity Validation Network (AI-NV). The network enables companies to validate sensitive information without sharing it with any third party. This is important as a lot of companies have experienced data theft and privacy challenges. Identiq is also helping companies to detect fraud. It has also been the target of fraudsters who posed as real users.
Identiq has been led by Insight Partners and Entree Capital. The company has recently announced a Series A round of $47 million. The company has been working on building the world’s largest Anonymous Identity Validation Network and is bringing the same technology to other areas of business. The company has a unique approach to combating fraud and has been involved in multiple fraud cases involving companies and consumers.
One of the more noteworthy feats of the Identiq is its use of cryptography to verify information without the need to hand over sensitive personal information. The company also claims that its technology is the best way to make sense of an overwhelming amount of data. The company is also planning to use the funding to expand its enterprise integrations and invest in AI capabilities.
It’s no secret that identity is one of the most critical aspects of today’s digital world, and Identiq’s solution has the potential to help companies protect their customers, employees, and partners. Currently, the company has just over 20 employees. However, it plans to add even more to its growing ranks in the coming years.
