What They Think
Around 75 percent of the respondents feel identity fraud concerns will never be eliminated in their industry considering its complexity. “We conducted the survey to get a better sense of the specific issues that our customers, prospects, and partners find most challenging to solve for in 2020,” said Johnny Ayers, Co-Founder, and SVP of Socure.
“It was expected that many respondents were sceptical about the elimination of identity fraud as it is an incredibly difficult and complex math problem, one that Socure is on-track to solve for in 2020 and finally eliminate completely,” Johnny Ayers said.
Socure claimed that their customers were already experiencing over 80 percent reductions in identity fraud by using the Machine Learning model. Along with this was a 90 percent reduction in the need for manual reviews.
“This type of accuracy in the market is delivering enormous zero to one jumps over the legacy solution providers, he claimed.
