Irish Identity Verification Firm ID-Pal Expands into the US

Irish identity verification solution ID-Pal announced its official launch into the US market to meet the demand for its platform across the United States.

Championed by Enterprise Ireland, the US launch is “building on ID-Pal’s success in serving both SMEs and enterprises across over 30 industries with simple, secure, and convenient identity verification.”

Offering global coverage of more than 6000 identity documents across 200 jurisdictions and countries, clients now “include, payments and gift cards provider Blackhawk Network (BHN), leading procurement and compliance platform Certa, global payments company and a subsidiary of US Bancorp Elavon and the recent J.P. Morgan-acquired Global Shares.”

ID-Pal’s presence in the US is “further bolstered by recent partnerships with financial service providers such as Spirit of Alaska Credit Union and award-winning lending and deposit account opening platform CreditSnap.”

The company also “boasts an impressive network of strategic partners in the United States, that includes Salesforce, Corporate One and Melissa.”

ID-Pal offers businesses an easy way “to verify the identity of an individual.”

Using a unique blend of biometric, document, and database checks to verify identities in real time, the solution “leverages automated decisioning and smart workflows to deliver industry-leading accuracy, and better outcomes, with data protection compliance built in.”

Available off-the-shelf to go live in minutes, ID-Pal also “integrates seamlessly with existing processes via an API or SDK. It can be deployed same day and is fully customizable thus reducing lengthy development time and demands on in-house resources.”

Expansion into the United States allows ID-Pal “to support financially regulated organizations struggling to balance compliance and fraud prevention with a friction-free user experience.”

The identity verification solution “streamlines anti-money laundering (AML) and Know your Customer (KYC) compliance while offering a robust audit trail.”

Knowledge-based authentication (KBA) and database-focused solutions also “struggle to match the sophistication of modern-day fraud, for which a multi-layered approach to verification via a platform like ID-Pal is needed.”

The regtech’s official entrance into the US market “comes less than a year after its successful launch in the UK and a Series A funding round.

Today, UK businesses now “account for over 30% of ID-Pal’s revenue and, following continued market traction there, 15% of their revenue is now from the US.”

Industry-approved and offering an intuitive user experience, the solution “is ISO 27001 certified, which is the global SOC 2 equivalent.”

In addition to the backing of the Irish government organisation Enterprise Ireland, ID-Pal “has received investment from European Inspire Investments, Act Venture Capital and US investors FA Ventures Fund, LTD, all of which have endorsed ID-Pal’s impressive expansion into new markets.”

Colum Lyons, CEO and founder of ID-Pal, comments:

“2022 was a landmark year for ID-Pal. In just nine months we launched in the UK, secured Series A funding, and now, with the support of Enterprise Ireland, our US and European investors, and our strategic partners, we are officially launching into the US in 2023. The standard of security, fast deployment, and digital transformation we provide organisations sets us apart. We work with industry leaders from across 30 sectors, which is evidence that our technology-first approach to identity verification makes it simple, secure, and convenient for any organization.”

Karen Cohalan, Department Manager for Fintech, Financial & Business Services at Enterprise Ireland, said:

“Enterprise Ireland warmly welcomes ID-Pal’s launch in the US market. Supporting Irish-owned companies to achieve greater scale and expand their global footprint is an ongoing priority for Enterprise Ireland. Enterprise Ireland looks forward to working with the ID-Pal team to continue to support their growth ambitions as they expand their customer base in the US whilst continuing to create jobs here in Ireland.”
