Telos Identity Management, a provider of identity management and access solutions, has announced that it has been certified by the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) as a vendor of their Electronic Fingerprint Submission (EFS) program.

In compliance with the Security Exchange Act of 1934, “every member of a national securities exchange, broker, dealer, registered transfer agent, registered clearing agency, registered securities information processor, national securities exchange, and national securities association shall require that each of its partners, directors, officers, and employees be fingerprinted.”

Telos ID’s FBI-certified fingerprinting service, IDVetting, is a comprehensive managed service for providing customers with Identity History Summary Check (IdHSC), formerly known as Criminal History Record Checks (CHRC).  Through a secure, electronic interface with the FBI, Telos ID can provide authorized customers with access to FBI criminal history records. In addition, Telos ID can extend its authorized customers with continuous monitoring services for insider threat management using the FBI’s Rap Back service, which Telos ID has implemented for numerous federal, state and local organizations.

“Through the EFS program, FINRA member firms have access to Telos ID’s managed service and retail fingerprinting network for submitting fingerprints electronically, which provides a faster and more secure transmission process while also increasing the assurance of receiving results within just minutes of submission,” said Mark Griffin, president and general manager of Telos ID.
