Exclusive: Identity-as-a-Service platform API launched by miiCard

Online identity verification company miiCard has launched a global Identity-as-a-Service (IDaaS) platform through an open application programming interface (API) and developer kit.

MiiCard said that IDaaS allows companies to integrate the identity verification service and can prove a user's identity to the level of a photo ID within minutes, enabling businesses to offer a wider range of products and services than previously available.

James Varga, CEO of miiCard, said: “With the launch of our global IDaaS platform, miiCard is deploying the engine that we believe will drive trust on the internet.

“We are now making it easy for any company to seamlessly integrate a LOA3 identity verification technology to enhance the security of and reduce fraud across their business.”

Launched earlier this year in beta, its Level of Assurance 3 (LOA3) identity verification service allows consumers to track, monitor and take control of their identity online by using the authority and security inherent in a user's online financial accounts to validate identity, according to the company.

The release of the IDaaS platform marks the official launch of miiCard's partner program.
