Inverid Representative Vendor in Gartner Market Guide for Identity Verification
Gartner has published their 2023 Market Guide for Identity Verification, and Inverid is named as a representative vendor for NFC identity verification. Gartner’s stance on NFC as a means of remote identity verification is clear: NFC-based identity verification will become unavoidable in the future and is currently a necessity if organisations need to trust the outcome of a check compared to dubious optical verification results as “counterfeits become harder to detect.”
As Gartner puts it, “It must be pointed out that any visual assessment (automated or human-driven) of document authenticity is ultimately probabilistic. (…) The chips are generally regarded as tamper-proof today, and vendors can verify that the data on the chip was cryptographically signed by the appropriate government issuing authority."
