20 Finovate Alums Earn Spots on One World Identity’s Top 100 Influencers List

When you think about it, what’s cooler than being named to a Who’s Who list in the world of digital identities?

One World Identity, an independent identity research and strategy company that specializes in cybersecurity, digital commerce, and risk management, published its roster of the Top 100 Influencers in Identity this week. This year, 20 Finovate alums made the cut. The individual influencers – as well as the companies they work for- are listed below.

As with last year’s roster, this year’s list was compiled by taking nominations submitted via Twitter, LinkedIn, and at oneworldidentity.com. The staff and advisory council for One World Identity whittled down the initial list of more than 1,000 nominees to a final 100.

One World Identity began as a project from a group of Google employees back in 2015. The company was officially launched the following year as a way to help spur innovation and collaboration in the field of digital identities. Travis Jarae is founder and CEO.

Baker Hill Forges Partnerships with Allied Solutions, Experian

With a pair of newly-announced deals, Baker Hill continues to deliver what company President and CEO John M. Deignan called “the cutting-edge technology and comprehensive analytical intelligence our clients need to compete and win in today’s lending environment.”

Baker Hill has partnered with Allied Solutions, which will refer Baker Hill’s suite of loan origination, risk management and business intelligence solutions to its FI clients. The partnership will also give Allied Solution’s 4,000 clients access to Baker Hill NextGen, the company’s cloud-based, end-to-end loan origination, portfolio risk management and decision support system. “Baker Hill’s platform is designed to accommodate the growing needs of financial institutions, and their consumers, by providing critical business insight and streamlined service,” Allied Solutions CMO Dave Underdale said. “(This is) something that can only empower financial institutions as they continue to grow and evolve their businesses.”

The company has also teamed up with Experian to give its clients access to Experian’s business credit services. Deignan said the partnership would leverage both companies’ strengths with regards to “mitigat(ing) credit risk while enhancing profitability.” Experian Business Information Services President Hiq Lee highlighted FIs’ growing reliance on data and predictive analysis, praising the agreement as a way to “ensure their clients receive comprehensive, third-party-verified information on 99.9% of all U.S. companies.”

Baker Hill serves nearly 600 FIs, including 20% of the top 100 banks and top 25 credit unions. Founded in 1983 and headquartered in Carmel, Indiana, the company demoed Baker Hill NextGen at FinovateSpring 2017. In September, the company teamed up with BOLTS Technologies to offer a streamlined account opening solution for FIs. The same month, Baker Hill announced that Kentucky-based People’s Bank and Trust would use its NextGen Statement Spreading to enhance its underwriting process.

BioCatch and Experian Form Partnership

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 8.22.20 AM

Israel-based BioCatch and information services giant Experian teamed up today. The partnership will allow Experian to leverage BioCatch’s behavioral biometrics technology to prevent new account fraud for CrossCore users.

Screen Shot 2017-04-10 at 9.29.14 AMDebuted at FinovateFall 2016, CrossCore enables organizations to integrate technology from multiple fraud and identity solutions providers into a single API to reduce friction and false positives. BioCatch’s biometrics technology will help organizations identify fraudsters, even if they enter stolen information.

In the press release, BioCatch CEO Eyal Goldwerger said that BioCatch is helping Experian “[provide] a completely new layer of security using behavioral biometrics by focusing on ‘how’ a user enters information into an application, not ‘what’ information is being entered, in a seamless way that does not add any friction to the application process.”

BioCatch works by mapping user behavior during the onboarding process to distinguish between normal user behavior and fraudster behavior. For example, while a consumer is filling out a credit card application, BioCatch detects patterns such as the speed and/or cadence of keystrokes. Targeting anomalies in user behavior helps catch a fraudster even if all of the information is correct.

BioCatch was founded in 2011 and now monitors 2+ billion transactions per month for a number of major bank clients. At FinovateFall 2014, the company showed off Invisible Challenges. BioCatch was recently ranked number 19 in Planet Compliance’s Regtech Top 100 Power List. Earlier this year, the company teamed up with Nuance Communications to power continuous authentication for Nuance Security Suite solution.

Headquartered in Dublin, Ireland, Experian recently received authorization from the Financial Conduct Authority, an organization responsible for regulating consumer credit agencies in the U.K. Last month, the company joined the Marketplace Lending Association to drive responsible fintech innovation.
