Acuris Risk Intelligence, a trusted and independent provider of data intelligence for anti-money laundering, anti-corruption and cybersecurity professionals, is now officially in partnership with Data Zoo, a global provider for identity verification solutions, to enable a market-leading KYC and CDD solution in identity verification.
Acuris Risk Intelligence is one of the top global providers of proprietary data on Politically Exposed Persons (PEPs), sanctions and anti-money laundering data for due diligence and compliance. Through this partnership, Data Zoo’s access to Acuris data will vastly improve their capacity to screen their customers against a daily updated list of PEPs, sanctions and adverse media, resulting in an innovative and compliant solution for their clients.
“It’s been a real pleasure working and partnering with Tony Fitzgibbon and the Data Zoo team,” Christophe Barel, Managing Director, Acuris Risk & Compliance Asia-Pacific, commented. “They have an impressive set of global identity solutions with unparalleled access to the most comprehensive identity data in the APAC region. Through joining forces with Acuris Risk Intelligence and using our data, they’re able to bring a market-leading KYC and CDD solution to an increasingly demanding market.”
“The addition of the Acuris data into Data Zoo's IDU identity solution provides a unique service offering within the APAC region,” Tony Fitzgibbon, Chief Executive Officer at Data Zoo, stated, adding, “Data Zoo's vision has been to create a single platform that can be hosted in any jurisdiction, and will enable customers to perform identity checks, leverage Biometric capabilities and conduct watchlist screening instantaneously.”
Data Zoo offers a multi-layered identity verification solution which clients can access screened individual profile images (where available), and they can match them against provided identity documentation; all from one API.
