Iovation wins the 2019 Identity innovation Award. The price for the best new concept or product was awarded during the IDnext19 conference in The Hague. Iovation safeguards tens of millions of digital transactions a day, with the world’s largest and most precise database of device reputation insights and cryptographically secure multifactor authentication methods.

The opinion of the award committee: The proposed solution of device authentication is a simple and straightforward one that has two major advantages: it takes the authentication burden off individual users which will be especially helpful for the growing number of digitally and socially vulnerable people; it also seems resilient to future developments, especially those of the IoT which already has massive security and privacy issues. 

“Iovation, a TransUnion company, is honoured to accept this award in support of our mission to make the Internet safer for commerce. We are proud of how we deliver on this mission without requiring the collection of directly identifying personal data through our unique combination of data minimisation, device intelligence, advanced authentication and our extensive network of external fraud fighters.” - John Marsden, Head of Fraud Prevention and Authentication for EMEA at iovation, a TransUnion Company
