Jumio, the leading AI-powered trusted identity as a service provider, today announced a new partnership with Nok Nok Labs, the trusted leader in next generation authentication. With the fully integrated Nok Nok S3 Suite and Jumio’s identity verification technologies for account recovery, customers can avoid difficult, time-consuming custom integrations and instead leverage the integrations of email- and SMS-based one-time passcode (OTP).

Every year tens of millions of smartphones, including company-issued phones, are lost or stolen, with only a small percent recovered. This poses a security risk to consumers and businesses alike who need a secure means of account recovery for legitimate users.

An ideal account recovery process provides an organization’s end users with a fast, simple and intuitive password-recovery experience. This must also be done without compromising security and while complying with policies governing the different regions in which they operate.

With the solution offered by Jumio and Nok Nok, organizations can bypass time-consuming custom integrations for a strong, secure and cost-effective account recovery solution that conveniently enables user account access on a new device, further enhancing consumers’ peace of mind. The Nok Nok Labs platform supports different account recovery methods, making it very easy to configure named policies for using one or more methods including Jumio’s Identity Verification. Customers can use flexible policy to enable combinations of recovery methods and can also dynamically choose the policy to be used based on other risk factors.

“Jumio is delighted to partner with Nok Nok in order to offer customers the ability to recover their account when they change devices,” said Stephen Kearney, Jumio head of worldwide partnerships. “Jumio’s ID and Identity Verification services allow users to prove their identity easily and securely recover their ability to authenticate on the new device. Nok Nok Labs has created a unique and innovative solution to address account recovery issues.”

"Strong authentication needs strong recovery as well as a policy-based approach that allows for different combinations of recovery methods,” said Santosh Rajvaidya, director of product management at Nok Nok Labs. “We are pleased to be able to offer customers even more choice in their authentication and recovery methodology as the Nok Nok S3 Suite now integrates with Jumio’s Identity Verification solution.”
