Introducing The ID Co.

July 11th, 2016.

The new name for miiCard, the identity company creating trust online.

It's been almost five years since we started our journey to create trust online.

At that time we launched our consumer offering as an MVP and over the coming years developed it as a full Identity as a Service platform, enabling businesses to integrate miiCard single sign on and verification into their sites. Today the miiCard Digital Passport is part of a pilot with the National Strategy for Trusted Identities in Cyberspace and the State of North Carolina, and has recently featured in a collaboration with TDL and Microsoft that allows miiCard members to log into any Azure Active Directory B2C enabled service.

Then early last year, due to demand and a strong pull from the market, we launched our business service DirectID. We essentially pulled that strong identity verification service that focused on levering the trust we already have with our bank, Bank Verified Identities, into a service that could be embedded within the customer onboarding journey. DirectID is now our business service, focusing on one time verifications with a frictionless user experience that can be embedded directly into your business process. The platform combines bank verified identities, live financial data, bureau and document authentication and is being used by global and local banks, wealth management platforms and leading online lenders.

We are now bringing these two products together as we continue our mission to create trust online. The ID Co. Is who we are, it's what we are all about and it reflects our five year mission to help solve one of the greatest challenges of our time.

This is a bold step for us and we would love your feedback. The lack of trust online is a pain we all feel and only by working together can we solve this for the world – so let's work together.

Thanks!
