InfoMart, a pioneer of global background screening and identity verification services, was recognized as a leader in background screening by One World Identity (OWI), a market intelligence and strategy firm focused on identity, trust, and the data economy.
As the identity industry rapidly develops, OWI's landscape provides an unparalleled overview of how digital identity applications are evolving and which companies are shaping next-generation digital identity. With over 400 companies and 35 market segments, the 2019 Identity Landscape visually depicts a growing and maturing industry. The new, unique landscape format allows companies to touch multiple market segments, reflecting on the dynamic nature of digital identity applications. The OWI team selected 415 identity companies from a pool of over 2,000 and based their rankings on several factors, including line of business, years in business, capital raised, and the nature of the company's products.
"Since 2017, the number of identity companies has more than quadrupled, from 500 companies to over 2,000," said Travis Jarae, CEO and Founder of OWI. "With the wave of data breaches and privacy scandals, there is a rapid expansion of identity products and solutions. The OWI team interacts with identity companies every day, from startups to enterprise. We're proud to share the Identity Landscape each year to distill how new companies, products, and solutions are shaping the future of identity."
"InfoMart's placement on OWI's Identity Landscape is indicative of a decades-long commitment to our clients and their employees. Deciding who to trust with your identifiable information and historical data is key for applicants and companies alike. It can be the deciding factor in your ability to hire and get hired, to rent and own property, to effectively interact with much of the world. We take that into account when we build fast, convenient global background screening solutions. As global mobility, gig lifestyles, and service and asset sharing continue to grow, we focus on innovative solutions that enable seamless transactions while ensuring trust and safety," said Marco Piovesan, InfoMart's Chief Executive Officer.
