Authenticate a user through fingerprint biometrics

Fingerprints are unique to each individual and do not change over time. And because they are part of the individual, they can be accessed at any time without requiring the customer to carry an additional device or token.

TrueID® helps to verify identities in face-to-face transactions. The captured and verified information is then available at other points of service for a subscribing organization.

Using our identity proofing solutions with TrueID, you can bind the proofed identity at enrollment to a user that comes in for repeat access using our Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) solutions.

  • Effectiveness: Many TrueID customers have experienced significant reduction in fraud losses and full cost recovery in just a few months.

White Paper

  1. LexisNexis® 2011 True Cost of Fraud Study
    Retail fraud continues to be a $100+ billion problem burdening merchants. To help businesses more effectively battle this issue, LexisNexis® retained Javelin Strategy & Research conduct this third annual study on US retail merchant fraud.

    This landmark study includes research of unprecedented scope conducted with over 1,000 merchants, financial institution executives and over 5,000 consumers. No study has so comprehensively assessed the costly nature of criminal methods, industry solutions and merchant needs across channels, company size, payment methods and industry segments.

    Among many in-depth findings of the 2011 study: continuing the downward trend from last year, total merchant fraud losses declined year over year but they continue to be a $100+ billion problem. However, fraud rates could be poised for an upswing. From the merchant's perspective, although the number of fraudulent transactions went down this year, the nature of transactions is trending to be more severe - the average dollar value of a completed fraudulent transaction is higher this year than what was reported last year. Top issues for US merchants who ship internationally - delay in payment confirmation, verification of customer identity, limited jurisdiction, and ability to reclaim merchandise and costs. International merchants also say they are more vulnerable to "friendly" fraud than domestic-only retailers

    This report is structured to help merchants benchmark and improve their efforts in the costly battle against fraud.
