Current Know-Your-Business (KYB) controls designed to confirm the identity of businesses are built to mitigate identity fraud but can be cumbersome for resource-strapped businesses to manage. Staying ahead of fraudsters requires providing a best-in-class, frictionless, risk-reduction solution.
Middesk, a provider of Know-Your-Business (KYB) identity solutions, and Effectiv, a fraud and compliance automation solutions provider, announce a new partnership that enables customers to fight fraud, provide risk-free onboarding, and improve trust between businesses.
“Our partnership with Middesk strengthens the fight against identity theft, fraud, and KYB, aligning perfectly with Effectiv’s solution that enables financial service providers to make fast, informed lending decisions and accelerate onboarding,” said Ritesh Arora, COO, Effectiv. “We’re excited to work side by side with Middesk to efficiently reduce risk.”
