We have been waiting for this day to arrive and are excited to finally share a project we’ve been working on behind the scenes. IDology has partnered with Microsoft to integrate our ExpectID identity verification and anti-fraud solution with Microsoft Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) External Identities. As of today, ExpectID is available to Microsoft customers for easy, plug-and-play access to multi-layered global identity verification as a service that elevates trust, facilitates onboarding, increases business identity assurance, and shuts down fraud.
If you’ve been reading this blog for a while, you know that ability to quickly verify identities and deliver an experience that is both secure and seamless has become both a critical business initiative and a competitive differentiator. Verifying identities for customers, third-party contractors, and new employees is no easy task, but it is something that every business must get right. Additionally, customers today expect frictionless onboarding experiences and if presented with lengthy or protracted vetting and identity checking processes, may turn to a competitor instead. This is supported by data from our recent Consumer Digital Identity Study which found that in the past year, 83 million Americans abandoned account signup because of friction. That’s a significant loss of revenue that could have been prevented.
In today’s threat-heavy environment, detecting and preventing fraud requires more than basic identity matching. That is why ExpectID accesses thousands of data sources and analyzes multiple layers of identity attributes that seamlessly work together to instantly verify identities and detect fraud. With ExpectID, Microsoft customers can quickly greenlight legitimate individuals with confidence or escalate to other methods if needed. At the end of the day, the depth of data ExpectID analyzes and control it provides businesses helps prevents revenue loss and delivers an experience that safeguards trust and builds loyalty.
With ExpectID, customers can quickly verify external identities such as third-party contractors, guests, customers, and other companies. In just a few simple steps, Microsoft customers can deploy IDology’s market leading identity verification into Azure Active Directory for seamless identity verification and identity management across all of their external identities.
Sue Bohn, Partner Director of Program Experience, Microsoft Identity Division, at Microsoft Corp. said, “We’re pleased to enable our customers to utilize IDology’s ExpectID solutions with Microsoft Azure Active Directory. Our B2B and B2C customers can obtain the power of a multi-layered solution that rapidly detects fraud and provides identity verification, while not compromising on end-user experience.”
At the same time, ExpectID gives Azure Active Directory customers fast, seamless identity verification to meet the demands of today’s customers who want to be protected but also expect convenience. With ExpectID, it’s easy to introduce the right amount of friction at the right time, deploy dynamic escalation methods only when needed and fulfill the need for identity verification without driving away customers.
