Leverage Digital Audit Trails
Protect your organization with comprehensive audit trails
To prove that a compliant account opening process was followed, financial institutions can capture a full audit trail of exactly what the applicant saw and did during the digital account opening process – including the identity verification and signing steps.
Digital audit trails prove that the FI carried out all necessary KYC checks and that the applicant intented to be bound by the terms of the agreement. Audit trails provide a complete record that can protect financial service providers against disputes.
Secure the Mobile Account Opening Process
Safeguard your mobile app and protect users’ sensitive data from cybercriminals
Financial institutions have no control over their users’ devices, and therefore, no control over the environment in which their mobile apps operate. As a result, a new applicant’s sensitive information can be stolen by mobile malware or other threats that will later infiltrate or already exist on the user’s device.
App shielding with runtime protection allows mobile applications to run securely during the remote account opening process and helps protect a mobile user’s personal information – without interrupting the user experience.
Authenticate Applicants Once Onboarded
Use biometrics to authenticate customers across your digital channels
For new applicants, facial comparison technology extracts biometric data from a selfie and compares that against the image in an authenticated ID document. This helps institutions determine whether a remote user is who they claim to be.
After the applicant has been onboarded, biometrics capabilities such as facial and fingerprint scans can be used to authenticate customers. OneSpan also offers other authentication methods, such as delivering a one-time password (OTP) via mobile.
