- WebID expands its platform services with the Verimi Wallet, the secure digital wallet for personal identity data
- Verimi users will be able to identify themselves with the Verimi Wallet at participating WebID partners
- WebID partners can offer their customers the storage of personal identity data in the Verimi wallet
Verimi and WebID have entered a strategic partnership to expand the digital identity ecosystem Global Trust Technology Platform GTTP. WebID now also offers the Verimi Wallet as a method for verifying customers' identities via its international platform.
More than 300 WebID partner companies are thus given the opportunity to offer their customers the use of the identity data deposited with Verimi as a digital ID card. End customers who have not yet deposited their data with Verimi, can also be offered to store their ID data, which has just been verified by WebID, in the Verimi Wallet. In this case, WebID integrates a "Save to Verimi" option into the identification process using the established WebID-Ident methods (WebID Video Ident, WebID Account Ident, WebID eID Ident and WebID AI Ident).
"The Verimi Wallet is an excellent addition to our own comprehensive identification solutions and the numerous third-party services on our platform," Frank S. Jorga, founder and CEO of WebID, explains. "We are excited to offer our partners a sophisticated ID wallet as a new building block for an optimized digital customer experience, while taking another step in our consistent platform strategy."
Platform customers can quickly make use of the advantages of the new partnership , as Verimi will be usable within the framework of the existing technical connections. New connections are made via the existing central interface at WebID. For end customers, the Verimi Wallet serves as a digital wallet for convenient use with all connected partners from various industries.
"The strategic partnership with WebID leads to many new acceptance partners and many new use cases for Verimi users" Roland Adrian, CEO of Verimi, says. " Building reach is critical for using the full potential of digital identities- together with WebID, we are taking an important step."
