Market Guide for Identity Proofing and Affirmation

Identity-first security principles are built on the initial establishment of trust in a real-world identity claim. Security and risk management leaders must balance assurance needs with optimizing UX, while orchestrating multiple tools and carefully selecting vendors from a crowded market.

Key findings

  • Organizations are under pressure to move more high-risk interactions online. However, the need to establish trust in the user’s real-world identity must be balanced with expectations for minimal friction in the user experience.
  • Making identity proofing, fraud detection and user authentication capabilities work together across the user journey can improve risk mitigation, reduce costs and boost innovation in product or service offerings, but remains challenging for organizations to execute on.
  • Organizations find it challenging to differentiate between the many identity proofing vendors on the market today amid indistinguishable marketing claims about accuracy and machine learning prowess.
  • The current paradigm of a user having to assert their real-world identity with every new service provider is not scalable given the pace of digitization. Portable digital identity solutions will be required to support both current and evolving use cases in the long term.
