Jumio,a provider of end-to-end identity verification and authentication solutions, today announced its Jumio Authentication solution was named Leader in Authentication and Most Innovative in Biometrics in the Cyber Defense Global Awards. Ervinna Lim, Jumio’s vice president of global customer success, also won a Women in Cybersecurity award for her achievements in the cybersecurity industry.

The Cyber Defense Global Awards are issued by Cyber Defense Magazine and honor information security innovators globally who are leading their industries. Lim was recognized for her vital role in supporting Jumio’s global customer base and launching Jumio services to new markets. As vice president of global customer success, Lim leads customer-facing teams across North America, Latin America, EMEA and APAC. Her team has more than tripled over the past year, and her efforts launching Jumio’s services to new markets helped the business grow its presence in Latin America and Asia-Pacific by more than four times in the past two years.

“The impact of Ervinna’s contributions are widespread, as she is helping Jumio change the way countries around the world fight fraud by establishing new standards for digital identity verification in the face of a turbulent fraud landscape,” said Robert Prigge, Jumio president.

Part of Lim’s achievements include launching Jumio Authentication, the first to market video selfie authentication solution, which was recognized by Cyber Defense Magazine as a leader in authentication for being the first solution to leverage face-based biometrics for initial identity proofing and ongoing user authentication. Jumio Authentication allows modern enterprises to prove user identity in online transactions by unlocking their users’ digital identities in seconds, providing a desperately needed alternative to passwords, SMS-based two-factor authentication and knowledge-based authentication — methods which have been proven susceptible to a number of security vulnerabilities.
