IdentityMind Webstore Helps Businesses Integrate Compliance Solutions

 

The new online RegTech store launched by IdentityMind Global today will make it that much easier for companies to integrate compliance and regulatory technologies into their solutions.

“The IdentityMind Webstore is the perfect channel for small and medium-sized FinTechs, marketplaces, virtual currency exchanges, small enders, and person-to-person payment (P2P) firms to enhance their platforms,” company Chief Products and Marketing Officer Jose Caldera explained. He emphasized even smaller companies need to be sure that their compliance programs “meet the full scope of the regulatory requirements,” and added that the new offering will help them do this “faster with minimum investment.”

The Webstore functions as a self-serve marketplace where customers can choose, demo for free, and purchase regtech plugins that serve as front ends to IdentityMind’s SaaS-based trusted digital identities platform. The customizable plugins can be deployed in web apps to provide AML, KYC, sanctions screening, and transaction monitoring operations.

Immediately available are a pair of solutions: a KYC Plugin, which includes a customizable onboarding form, pre-integrated with IdentityMind’s platform; and an ICO Plugin, that helps ensure companies conduct compliant onboarding for initial coin offerings (ICOs) and security token offerings (STOs). IdentityMind Global has been especially effective in using its trusted digital identities technology in this market, having worked with more than 25 virtual currency exchanges around the world and helped more than 165 companies conduct compliant ICOs and STOs. Additional plugins are expected to be added later this year and into 2019.

IdentityMind Global demonstrated its platform at FinovateSpring 2018. Founded in 2009, the Palo Alto, California-based company partnered with ZED Network last month to help the company’s money transfer operators (MTOs) meet KYC and AML regulations. In addition to being named one of The Silicon Review’s 50 Best Companies to Watch in 2018 this summer, IdentityMind Global teamed up with Ontology Trust Ecosystem in July, with ONe Network in May, and with digital shopping platform Fluz Fluz in March.

With more than $20 million in funding, IdentityMind Global includes Benhamou Global Ventures, Lakewood & Company, and Eastern Link Capital among its investors. Garrett Gafke is CEO.

IdentityMind Global to Help ZED Network MTOs Meet KYC, AML Compliance 

Just weeks after announcing that it would provide KYC/AML compliance solutions for Ontology Trust Ecosystem, IdentityMind Global is back in the news. ZED Network, an international payments platform, will deploy the newly-released version 2.0 of IdentityMind Global’s solution to ensure KYC and AML compliance for its money transfer operators (MTOs) around the world.

“We are pleased to work with an innovative company like ZED Network that has created a comprehensive money transfer platform for global, small-to-medium-sized MTOs so that they can effectively compete against larger MTOs,” IdentityMind Global CEO Garrett Gafke said. “We have a successful track record of working with ‘breakthrough’ companies like ZED Network to help them grow rapidly and scale while remaining compliant.”

ZED Network specializes in small to medium sized MTOS, providing them with a distributed ledger-based platform-as-a-service solution including state of the art online and mobile apps, back office administration, and built-in compliance tools. The company calls its solution a “comprehensive remittance in a box” that enables smaller MTOs to participate in a faster, more transparent, less expensive money transfer network that does not rely on banks.

“Partnering with IdentityMind helps streamline the KYC and AML process for MTOs,” regardless of their jurisdiction, ZED Network founder and CEO Alan Safahi said.

IdentityMind Global demonstrated its platform earlier this year at FinovateSpring 2018. Founded in 2009 and headquartered in Palo Alto, California, the company launched version 2.0 of its technology last month. The enhanced platform leverages dynamic modeling, a transparent access framework, and contextual identity analysis to provide accurate AML compliance with fewer false positives.

The company has been making friends at a fast pace in 2018, helping companies like decentralized private social media platform ONe Network, Canadian blockchain technology firm, Etherparty Smart Contracts; and Mexican currency value management innovator AirTM meet KYC and AML compliance requirements, as well as conduct PEP screening and transaction monitoring.

IdentityMind Global has raised more than $20 million in funding. The company includes Benhamou Global Ventures, Lakewood & Company, and Eastern Link Capital among its investors.
