How it Works
See how OneSpan helps financial institutions fight new account fraud in the digital account opening process
Aite Group research revealed that new account fraud was second only to account takeover fraud as the biggest challenge for financial institutions.
OneSpan’s Agreement Automation solution provides mobile ID capture, ID verification, and signing capabilities to provide a positive customer experience while mitigating identity theft and new account fraud across digital channels.
Quickly Verify Identities Remotely
Ensure ID documents are legitimate with digital identity verification
New account fraud and other identity theft crimes continue to challenge banks and FIs. Automated ID document verification and facial comparison enable a customer’s identity to be validated in real-time, whether the transaction takes place online or via mobile.
OneSpan Agreement Automation automates new digital customer onboarding and reduces fraudulent enrolments by positively identifying qualified customers during the application process.
Ensure the Authentic Applicant is Present
Leverage biometric authentication to verify identities across your digital channels
During the digital account opening process, financial institutions must determine whether the remote applicant is who they claim to be. Best practice is to leverage facial comparison capabilities to extract biometric indicators from a selfie and compare that against the image in an authenticated ID document.
After the applicant has been onboarded, biometric authentication methods can be used to verify known customers using facial recognition and fingerprint scans.
Checklist: Digital Identity Verification for Fraud Prevention
Gartner predicts that by 2022, 80% of organizations will be using document-centric digital identity verification as part of customer onboarding.

Protect against Mobile Fraud
Mitigate fraud with mobile security capabilities

- Persistent device identification to bind user accounts to trusted devices and thwart unauthorized attempts to apply for new credit products
- Mobile app shielding and behavioral biometrics to identify and stop automated malware or bot activity
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 an 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 of the account opening process and can protect financial service providers against legal or compliance disputes.
