LONDON & SAN FRANCISCO - Oct. 6, 2022 – Onfido, the leading provider of automated global digital identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced that Onfido Studio, part of the Onfido Real Identity Platform, has been awarded “Security Orchestration Solution of the Year” in the 6th annual CyberSecurity Breakthrough Awards program conducted by CyberSecurity Breakthrough, a leading independent market intelligence organization that recognizes the top companies, technologies and products in the global information security market today.
Onfido also announced that it had been recognized in the 2022 Fintech 250 by CB Insights, an annual list of the 250 most promising private fintech companies in the world. Onfido’s designation on the list marks its fifth consecutive recognition by CB Insights. Also on the list were Onfido clients Revolut, KOHO, Chipper Cash, and Klarna.
Launched in May, Onfido’s Real Identity Platform reduces the complexity of sourcing and managing multiple identity verification vendors to meet local compliance regulations and can more easily mitigate fraud threats in an increasingly global marketplace. Hailed by companies like TSB Bank, Orange Poland, and Chipper Cash, the Onfido Real Identity Platform helps global companies reduce friction for customers with features like its Smart Capture SDK, while giving companies the flexibility and freedom to scale with Onfido Studio, the no-code mission control for identity verification.
