Entrust has completed its acquisition of Onfido. With this completed acquisition, Entrust can provide a comprehensive portfolio of AI-powered, identity-centric security solutions. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.

According to a recent report, Onfido saw a 3,000% increase in deepfakes and a five-times increase in forged identities over the past year. Onfido’s technology fights fire with fire, utilising AI to deliver reliable liveness detection and spot deepfakes, video spoofs, masks, and similar identity theft tactics. Over the last year and a half, Onfido prevented an additional $6bn in potential fraud.

Todd Wilkinson, president and chief executive officer, Entrust, said: “This acquisition comes at an inflection point in the industry. With the acquisition of Onfido, our customers can leverage global-leading identity verification technology to meet the new challenges of cybersecurity in the age of AI. Identity-centric security is the starting point for Zero Trust frameworks and ensures a company’s cyber defense is best positioned to meet today’s threats. Entrust now provides the broadest identity-centric security capabilities in the market which combine with strong encryption technologies to enable the evolution to Zero Trust.”

Entrust will service a range of business requirements by leveraging Onfido’s cutting-edge identity verification solutions across the Entrust portfolio including its biometrics, AI/machine learning, and no-code orchestration capabilities.
