The Forrester Wave™ uses a transparent methodology to evaluate companies in the software, hardware, or services markets so its clients can make well-informed purchasing decisions. Its evaluation ranks Leaders, Strong Performers, Contenders, and Challengers in the market. It conducts a 22-criterion evaluation of identity verification (IDV) solution providers and assesses them in three categories; current offering, strategy, and market presence.
“The honor of being named a Leader in identity verification solutions in The Forrester Wave™ for 2022 is, in our opinion, a reflection of the investments TransUnion has made in our global fraud solutions,” said Shai Cohen, senior vice president and head of global fraud solutions at TransUnion. “As digital transactions continue to grow, consumers and organizations find themselves threatened by efficient and evolved forms of fraud. It’s critically important to confirm that customers are who they say they are while ensuring they have a friction-less transaction. We look forward to continuing to develop new and innovative offerings in customer identity and access management as fraud risks evolve.”
In addition to naming TransUnion as a Leader in identity verification solutions, The Forrester Wave™ report specifically cited the company’s current offering, stating that the solution offers great public-record-based IDV (including credit header file), coupled with powerful phone-number, email-address, and physical-address verification.
