Onfido, the global identity verification and authentication provider, today announced it has recorded unprecedented growth in 2020. Global annual recurring revenue (ARR) increased by 82% year-over-year. The company more than doubled its sales in the US, which is one of its fastest growing regions. In addition, the company added 320 new companies to its roster, fueled by an acceleration of digital transformation initiatives by enterprises worldwide. According to Gartner, “69% of boards of directors (BoDs) accelerated their digital business initiatives in the wake of COVID-19 disruptions.” This, together with a 41% increase in identity fraud, spearheaded the need for greater and more sophisticated remote security measures, in particular identity verification.”Driven by the global pandemic and the associated shutdowns, digital tools and technologies that enable a touch-free world have enabled us to continue working, shopping, learning, and receiving healthcare,” said Mike Tuchen, CEO of Onfido. “Digital identity verification is at the heart of all of these online services. As a result, in 2020 organizations have accelerated their digital transformation initiatives. This unprecedented drive to digital drove the demand for Onfido verification services to record levels.” Onfido's partner ecosystem sales grew 176% year-over-year. Onfido established new strategic category partners in the areas of identity access, orchestration, financial services, and system integration. New ecosystem partners in 2020 included Visa, Salesforce, SecureKey, Auth0, Okta, and ForgeRock's leading reseller HubCity Media.
