We (DocVerify) are proud to be in a position where our technological innovations aren't just for the sake of it. Instead, our innovations solve problems... like our new ID capture platform.
IRVINE, CA, March 13, 2018 /24-7PressRelease/ -- DocVerify is the first to introduce extra layers of security in the existing secure remote notary system through an ingenious integration of its proprietary ID capture and facial recognition platform. What makes this system tremendously useful is that it does away with the existing shortcomings in the remote e-notary system while keeping the process simple and straightforward for both, the notaries and the people looking for notarization.
Since Virginia's enactment of remote notarization, several other states have started to incorporate the same into their systems. Notaries can now run their own businesses from their homes or offices without requiring the individuals to visit them for the notarization of their documents.
The existing electronic remote notary system in various states relies heavily on Knowledge Based Authentication, aka KBA. Using this system, individuals looking for online notarization services provide personal information about themselves. Using this information, a third party provider generates security questions that these individuals must answer correctly to be verified as legit parties.
However, the hundreds of security breaches that have taken place in the past years have made KBA weak and unreliable. It is easy for the people on the dark web to identify themselves as people who they are not. Even though the remote e-notarization procedure requires individuals to be present in front of a webcam, a false person can answer the series of questions based on the stolen information and get away with the webcam session if the notary does not have a picture of the person for reference.
That's exactly where DocVerify adds an additional new layer of security with its new ID Capture platform. Using this platform, notaries can require individuals to authenticate their IDs by asking them to present copies of their licenses, the back and the front side for analysis in addition to KBA. Furthermore, they will use their real-time image appearing on the screen and tally it with the picture on the license With DocVerify's powerful facial recognition that can analyze images from the web cam and the license.
Russel Michelson of DocVerify says, "We (DocVerify) are proud to be in a position where our technological innovations aren't just for the sake of it. Instead, our innovations solve problems... like our new ID capture platform, which is equally benefitting for people looking for notary services and those providing them."
By adding these simple steps to its e-notary platform, DocVerify has fortified the system where hackers will not be able to identify themselves as someone else even with the stolen information from company's databases. The best part is how easy it will be for notaries and individuals looking for notarization of their documents to adjust with this system. The steps are simple, straightforward, and secure the system as well as the notarization as a whole.
DocVerify also plans to make the ID Capture platform available to other integration partners that want to provide this level of security and authentication to their clients as well in the near future.
