Jumio has announced the company has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019. Jumio is honored as the 29th-ranked company globally and the second-ranked company in the Security category.
Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies list honors the businesses making the most profound impact on both industry and culture, showcasing a variety of ways to thrive in today’s volatile world. Jumio’s innovations, driven by Jumio Authentication, augmented intelligence, machine learning, 3D liveness detection and a seamless user experience, have enabled the company to become the global leader in online identity proofing and ongoing authentication, as it has verified more than 160 million identities to date issued by over 200 countries and territories. These innovations have led Jumio to become the most accurate solution on the market and one of the key leaders in both deterring and detecting online fraud.
“We’re thrilled to be recognized as one of the world’s most innovative companies,” said Stephen Stuut, CEO of Jumio. “Innovation is at the core of what we do, and we are constantly evolving our technology to stay ahead of the fraud curve and preserve the digital chain of trust between companies and consumers. We’ve invested heavily in emerging technologies, including augmented intelligence and machine learning, and our recent launch of Jumio Authentication empowers companies to know that their online customers are who they claim to be.”
Jumio’s mission is to make the internet a safer place by protecting the online ecosystem against fraud and bad actors. The company supports some of the largest organizations across an array of sectors – including financial services, sharing economy, retail, travel, digital currency and online gaming – and continues to grow as more companies turn to Jumio to protect their online businesses.
The World’s Most Innovative Companies is Fast Company’s signature franchise and one of its most highly anticipated editorial efforts of the year. It provides both a snapshot and road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of the economy. Half of the companies on this year’s MIC 50 list are appearing from the first time.
“Established players are showing the same kind of nimbleness that we’ve generally associated with startups,” said Fast Company deputy editor David Lidsky, who oversaw the issue with senior editor Amy Farley.
