Acuant today announced a strategic integration with Okta to provide enterprises with reliable and seamless user authentication. Acuant now works with the Okta Integration Network for identity proofing, adding an extra layer of identity assurance to help keep sensitive information from falling into the wrong hands.
Acuant’s patented technology extracts biometric and alphanumeric data to authenticate user identity, applying over 50 forensic document-specific tests. The platform relies on a large library of identity documents to help businesses quickly and accurately verify global employee and customer identities, eliminating manual screening errors and ultimately providing employees with a better user experience.
“In today’s ever-evolving threat environment, all organizations are confronted with the need to verify identities – whether digitally or document-based – to ensure both the right user has access to information and also to protect sensitive data,” said Chuck Fontana, Vice President of Okta Integrations and Strategic Partnerships. “By working with Acuant to make identity verification an even easier and more secure process, we can help to ensure that the right people can register and get access to the tools and information they need to be productive – helping our joint customers offer a seamless, secure experience for their workers and customers.”
