ID Verification

Personator Identity - KYB Feature Release

Business Verification is now available within Personator Identity and will include the ability to match businesses, addresses, and business IDs around the world.

  • We are integrating KYB (Know Your Business) for select countries. KYB helps to identify and verify businesses for any current and future B2B relationships.

What is KYB?

Criminal intent has been prevalent throughout business history, which is why KYB and anti-money laundering (AML) are very relevant practices. Before entering into any Business-to-Business relationship, companies need to ensure they are working with a legitimate business partner. It is important for organizations not to establish links with fake or unlawful entities.

KYB allows users to verify the legitimacy of the entities that they are working with, making sure that relationships are built with legitimate businesses around the world.
