Acuris Risk Intelligence (ARI), a trusted and independent provider of data intelligence for anti-money laundering, anti-corruption, cybersecurity and third party risk professionals, today announces its partnership with ArdentSky LLC, the gaming industry’s leading provider of regulatory compliance software. The integration of ARI’s market-leading Search functionality with the Vendor Management Module of ArdentSky’s Compliance Suite provides unprecedented value. 


Through the integration, subscribers will seamlessly be able to vet businesses and individuals against proprietary PEP, Sanction, Adverse Media and additional databases. Subscribers will also be able to directly access ARI’s Enhanced Due Diligence (EDD) portal, ordering bespoke EDD reports at the click of a button. The reports, which include UBO, Source of Wealth and jurisdictional risk assessment information, complement the licensing tools and document collection functionality of ArdentSky’s Compliance Suite. 


Fiona Davies, EMEA Head of Sales, Acuris Risk Intelligence says, “We are excited to be partnering with ArdentSky to deliver global risk data and EDD which provides a fully integrated solution for compliance teams applying for and managing regulator licences. The time efficiencies ArdentSky offers makes this the only partnership of its kind in the industry that will deliver benefits for gaming companies tenfold in what is a very complex and lengthy application process across US Regulators. I would recommend anyone applying for multiple licences to speak to ArdentSky as what they offer is completely unique to gambling and very much fit for purpose. “ 


“ArdentSky LLC, the gaming industry’s leading provider of regulatory compliance software, is delighted to announce its partnership with Acuris Risk Intelligence, the leading independent provider of data intelligence for anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and cybersecurity professionals,” says Elliot Blatt, Chief Marketing Officer, ArdentSky. “ArdentSky’s Vendor Management Module, a dynamic KYC system enabling compliance personnel to easily research, maintain, organize and calendar information related to business vendors, customers, distributors, and partners, will integrate Acuris’ comprehensive and dynamic KYC and Enhanced Due Diligence data.
