SmartSearch ‘TripleCheck’ Sets a New Standard in AML Security

Security , AML and KYC

Anti-money-laundering (AML) specialist SmartSearch has launched TripleCheck, a ground-breaking new digital Know Your Customer (KYC) and AML solution.

TripleCheck combines three highly sophisticated verification methods to set a new standard in AML security.

Level 1 – Identification and Verification with sanctions and PEP screening

Level 1 is SmartSearch’s award-winning electronic identity verification.

With just a name, address and date of birth, the system uses dual-bureau credit reference agency (CRA) data and the Dow Jones Global Watchlist to perform a full AML check, with automatic sanctions and politically exposed persons (PEP) screening.

Advanced AI automatically triggers enhanced due diligence on any matches and resolves almost all ‘false positives’.

Level 2 – Facial recognition, document capture and liveness appraisal

Level 2 combines optical character recognition (OCR) and the latest biometric facial recognition techniques to provide a true picture of a customer.

This highly advanced technology performs an algorithmic check on photo ID documents to ensure they are authentic. Then, using a customer ‘Selfie Liveness Video’ (SLV), it uses biometric and liveness detection to compare the ‘real person’ with the document provided to ensure the image and information is genuine.

Level 3 – Digital fraud checks with data referencing and triangulation

Level 3 of TripleCheck utilises various Digital Elements (DEs) such as mobile phone numbers, email and IP addresses, to create robust and easy-to-understand fraud risk indicators and deliver an overall risk score. A dashboard provides detailed information to support additional due diligence, enabling further investigation of high-risk events.

The SmartSearch TripleCheck technology then ‘triangulates’ this information, matching the DEs to the individual’s terrestrial address and enabling the CRA data, ID document and SLV imaging to be bound together to create a unique Composite Digital Identity (CDI).

Commenting on the launch of TripleCheck, John Dobson, CEO of SmartSearch, said: “Our mission is to make AML compliance easy, while the technology behind TripleCheck is highly advanced, the interface and the outputs have been designed with user-friendliness in mind, meaning staff at any level can successfully perform a SmartSearch TripleCheck.

“By combining three sophisticated verification processes into one powerful tool, we have created the mostpowerful, robust and reliable all-in-one AML platform on the market.”
