Fraud prevention and compliance are top of mind for buyers when weighing new solutions. By the end of 2023, it is estimated that $2.2B will be lost to AO fraud from synthetic identities, and with increasing regulation, AML fines are only set to increase from their high of $5B issued last year.*

Onfido was acknowledged as a leader on Liminal’s matrix, scored by Market Presence and Product Execution. Onfido achieved a positive global market presence score of 4.3/5 and a product execution score of 72%, closest to TransUnion, an Onfido partner. Onfido was also noted as a leader in the AO space by 44.9% of respondents and was a recognized brand by over half of buyers, solidifying Onfido as a top company in both these categories. And thanks to its dedicated customer success team, Onfido’s customer satisfaction score was 60.4%, making it a top ten vendor in this category.
