Mitek, a global leader in digital identity verification, has joined the Open Identity Exchange (OIX), a global community for all those involved in the ID sector to connect and collaborate, developing the guidance needed for interoperable, trusted digital identities.

Mitek’s pioneering approach to identity verification technology and Know Your Customer (KYC) configuration has made the company a trusted partner across the globe. Clients include the largest banking institutions in the world, as well as fintechs, marketplaces, gaming operators and e-commerce sites across North America and Europe.

Now joining the OIX community, Mitek will contribute its global perspective on the trends towards adoption of digital identity technology and help progress OIX’s mission to ensure digital ID works well for everyone involved.

Gareth Narinesingh, Head of Digital Identity at Mitek, said: “Digital identity is reaching a pivotal stage in the adoption curve. Whilst Mitek is focused on innovation and ongoing investment in our identity products, we must also collaborate across sectors and with other organisations to move things forward in the right direction and at pace.

“OIX has become a vital platform for this, providing networking opportunities, forums and working groups for companies around the world with mutual ambitions to operate in the identity space together. We are delighted to join this community to help create a vibrant digital identity ecosystem for governments, businesses and consumers.”

Nick Mothershaw, Chief Identity Strategist at OIX, said: “Our members are some of the most innovative organisations in the world. They want to see positive progress and are driving results in their own spaces. They have played a key role in our success and influence across the globe. For this reason, we are delighted that Mitek has chosen to join OIX. Its global presence and excellent technology will bring a valuable perspective. We look forward to their expert contributions to our work on digital ID definition and adoption, both in influencing key stakeholders and educating the acceptors of ID.”
