PALO ALTO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Jumio, the leading provider of end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced its Jumio Authentication solution was named Leader in Authentication and Most Innovative in Biometrics in the Cyber Defense Global Awards. Ervinna Lim, Jumio’s vice president of global customer success, also won a Women in Cybersecurity award for her achievements in the cybersecurity industry.
The Cyber Defense Global Awards are issued by Cyber Defense Magazine and honor information security innovators globally who are leading their industries. Lim was recognized for her vital role in supporting Jumio’s global customer base and launching Jumio services to new markets. As vice president of global customer success, Lim leads customer-facing teams across North America, Latin America, EMEA and APAC. Her team has more than tripled over the past year, and her efforts launching Jumio’s services to new markets helped the business grow its presence in Latin America and Asia-Pacific by more than four times in the past two years.
“The impact of Ervinna’s contributions are widespread, as she is helping Jumio change the way countries around the world fight fraud by establishing new standards for digital identity verification in the face of a turbulent fraud landscape,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio president.
Part of Lim’s achievements include launching Jumio Authentication, the first to market video selfie authentication solution, which was recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine as a leader in authentication for being the first solution to leverage face-based biometrics for initial identity proofing and ongoing user authentication. Jumio Authentication allows modern enterprises to prove user identity in online transactions by unlocking their users’ digital identities in seconds, providing a desperately needed alternative to passwords, SMS-based two-factor authentication and knowledge-based authentication — methods which have been proven susceptible to a number of security vulnerabilities.
Jumio Authentication, honored in two categories, incorporates the world’s first and only iBeta Level 1 and Level 2 certified anti-spoofing technology into its online identity verification suite to capture and process the user’s face images taken from any 2D smartphone camera or webcam. The face frames taken with Jumio Authentication are then reconstituted to create a 3D face map which contains over 100 times more liveness data than a 2D photo. This type of liveness detection ensures the user is physically present and prevents masks, dolls, photos or videos, including deepfakes, from fooling the system, offering the highest security face-based biometric verification available.
“2019 is on track to be the worst year on record for data breaches. As it becomes more and more difficult to verify a person’s digital identity, Jumio Authentication empowers enterprises worldwide with a quick, seamless approach to authentication capable of stopping the account takeover fraud epidemic,” Prigge said.
