Enable user self-verification for improved identity confidence with Acuant


With Okta and Acuant working together, end users are empowered with real-time document image capture, authentication and facial recognition matching technology to verify their identities during online transactions – in pre-registration or post-registration workflows. Use cases include fraud prevention, privileged access, and proof of membership in a particular demographic, including age proofing. Acuant’s document-identity proofing solution includes image processing: it accepts an image via API, analyzes it, and returns a result. It also includes an SDK/API that is used to capture an image from a smart phone.

The Challenge

  • Consumers roam sites anonymously, or sign in with invented names
  • Authenticating individual visitors is simultaneously risky and cumbersome
  • Abandonment rates are high, costing your enterprise precious leads

The Solution

Mobile Device Lifecycle Automation

Users verify their identity with common documents, like a driver’s license

Connecting to identities icon

IT safely automates workflows that require user documentation

Social Authentication icon

Enterprises minimize the risk of identity breach and leaks of sensitive information

Take charge of fraud prevention

Confidently enable customer self-service registration to execute sensitive online transactions

  • Example: Let end-users open a credit line with an online bank or retailer

Securely award enhanced access

Control differential access to sensitive information for approved and verified groups using document-based identity proofing—and, optionally, a high-res mobile photo

  • Example: Grant retail managers access to higher-level data, like employee schedules and progress reports, while restricting it from the employees themselves

Enable proof-of-membership in an age group or demographic

Give customers the ability to confidently segment users by specific traits, including age or other demographics

  • Example: Allow online retailers to grant discounts to military veterans or college students
  • Example: Enable concerts to allow access only to people over 21

Empower end users to securely verify their identity with minimal inconvenience, to move them quickly toward productive action

  • Enable self-verification with mobile phones plus documents end-users already own
  • Provide accurate scans that deliver data to the app, to verify
  • Bring end-users quickly to the materials they’re authorized to access
  • Reduce the incidence of fraud and the high cost of user abandonment
