COMPANY HISTORY

AUSTRALIAN OWNED – WE GIVE YOU 10+ YEARS OF FOCUSED, SECURE IDENTIFICATION

Dr Kevin Cox founded Edentiti Pty Ltd in 2005 with the aim of providing verification solutions for government and businesses that had a need to verify an individual’s identity online.

Edentiti introduced the greenID™ platform in the same year, which at the time was viewed as a breakthrough in online identity verification.

Since then, greenID™ has established its platform as the leading verification service to over 300 businesses globally.

WE CONTINUE TO GROW ACROSS THE GLOBE

As the need for the greenID™ platform grew internationally, what began as Edentiti has turned into VIX Verify, with a global vision and expanded operations and offices in:

  • Australia (Sydney, Melbourne and Canberra)
  • Wellington, New Zealand
  • Singapore
  • Atlanta, USA
  • London, UK
  • Amsterdam, NL
  • Cape Town, South Africa

WE CREATE WORLD FIRSTS IN VERIFICATION

By leading the charge with electronic identity verification, we became the first “private sector organisation” to access the Australian Federal Government Document Verification Service (DVS) – comparing identifying information with a government issued record.

We are the largest non-government user processing in excess of 60% of all ‘non-government’ transactions on a monthly basis.

We were also first to access the Department of Internal Affairs (DIA) Confirmation Service in New Zealand in 2014.

WE HAVE A FOCUSED, CONSISTENT VISION

Regardless of where our customers are anywhere in the world, we remain committed to continuously improving and providing premier electronic verification services globally. This has seen us harness our core features including:

  • Global data sources
  • Optical Character Recognition (OCR)
  • Biometric identity verification – voice and face
  • Fraud Detection tools – device, location, behaviour
  • Document Authentication

Ask us how our experience can help your business, and get in touch here.
