Helping Financial Services Use Biometrics

Consumer and employee attitudes about biometrics have shifted. More people are comfortable using them, and more expect them to be part of their work and financial experience in the future. As research indicates, nearly 90% of businesses will be using biometric authentication by 2020, up from 62% in 2018.

Your company needs biometrics. SureID can help.

As a certified FINRA electronic fingerprint services vendor, SureID simplifies the fingerprinting process for financial organizations that require FBI background screens for candidates and employees. Our single-sourced nationwide network is the only one in existence. It covers over 720 cities in all 50 states and Washington DC. Your candidates are usually less than a 30-minute trip from one of our locations.

We work with several background screening providers to provide a consistent, professional fingerprinting experience. And our state-of-the-art technology means the fingerprinting process remains safe and secure throughout.

Nearly 50% of customers would feel secure using biometrics for authentication at a bank branch.


Here’s how it works

SureID’s representatives work with your background provider to integrate your HR system with our solution.

2Have candidates

After we receive each candidate’s biographical information, we email them information about how to get their fingerprints captured. They choose a convenient location, usually no more than 30 minutes away. A trained and certified technician helps them capture their fingerprints on our state-of-the-art equipment. All without an appointment!

3Receive candidate

When the candidate submits fingerprints, SureID sends them directly to FINRA, which then provides them to the FBI. FINRA will make the results available to your designated authorized recipient within 24-72 hours.
